I was just curious, but do things get better in highschool? See, I'm 14 and going into highschool, but all through junior-high I was kinda shy. I had alot of friends though, it's not like no one ever talked to me. But I have a bunch of friends in highschool already, and I was just wondering if in highschool things got more active, and you made new friends, or even a boyfriend or two? I just don't want this year to turn out boring like the last two years. Can anyone give me some input? Thankz, it would help alot!

Hi, lucky. I'm going into grade ten, and in my opinion, it all sucked.

If you don't want it to be boring, sign up for lots of clubs. If you're not into sports, sign up for book clubs, or cheerleading, or something. Trust me, at the end of the year, you'll regret everything you didn't do.

If you do lots of activities and stuff, you're bound to make friends in highschool.

High school is the best!! I used to be exactly like you, before i went into grade nine. I don't know what it is, but high school just changes everything. I don't know how it will be for you, but for me i got involved in everything, like teams and clubs and stuff and it helps you find people w/ the same interests as you. And don't push the boyfriend thing ... When the time is right, you'll have a boyfriend and it'll be the best

hate to be such a downer, but i *hated* high school. but that was because i trapped in a small town full of ignorant people who shunned challenge and innovative thought.

college is the way to go. i'm so much happier now.

MY FRESHMAN YEAR:
my first high school experience was definatly better than junior high in middle school i was a complete outcast with about 4 other people who were cool with me for about the four years. i had no friends that were guys, no bf or first kiss but when i hit freshman year my world flipped i hung out with people like me we called ourselves "the group" we were all diffreent (the people who don't fit in with the preps, goths or ANY one else) i didn't change but i was more open with my opinions i experienced a lot more i fell in love and my first EVERYTHING i must say that you shouldn't rush any thing no matter how tempting. i don't regret anything but i wish i waited thats pretty much the best way for me to sum up the kind of changes that can occur in high school for some people

High school sucked. Many, countless nights sucking on a barrel, plotting murders and revenge, cutting myself, crying myself to sleep, drug use, and just good, ole fashioned stupidity. I never thought I'd ever live to see graduation, and now that I have, I don't know what to do with life... it feels like a void of nothingness... waiting for death.

I learned alot in highschool, made mistakes, and such.
It's an expirience, I'll tell you that.
You will make friends and have fun and be bored and be sad and mad. It's highschool.
Just be good and do your homework.

Personally, I hate high school. Then again, I hated junior high too I hate to be negative, but I'm *not* one of the ones who love high school, and think it's one of the most wonderful things that happened to them. I'm not popular. People think I'm strange, I'm the weird musician-art-theatre geek girl, and I go to a school where people pay attention to the jocks and cheerleaders and whoever else happens to be popular, but not me. Which doesn't bother me at all.

What seems like everything in high school- trust me - will NOT matter when you graduate. I'm going to be a junior this year, and the one major thing that I do regret about my freshman year was that I didn't do much. I was depressed a lot, and really wish I would have taken more time to do the things that I do now (the things that make high school *a bit* worthwhile)- drama club, yearbook committee, newspaper (I'm going to be the editor this year! Oh yeah )...things like that. Sign up for things! Don't do too much, but be involved in clubs and committees and such- it makes things a lot better, and you'll meet people with your similar interests, which is a major major plus.

I still don't really like high school. It all depends on where you go- my boyfriend goes to an alternative high school for the performing arts, and we both have great friends from there, and he loves it. But hey, if sports and being really social are your thing, you might love high school.

My main problem with high school is that people are way too shallow. No one BOTHERS to be intelligent, no one BOTHERS to note anything outside from their media infested MTV world. But I'm not saying all schools are like that. Maybe mine is just really bad

The thing that sets high school over junior high though, is that since your high school will most likely be larger, you're tons more likely to meet people like yourself. My situation is similar to Jenie_Ruben's...I have a great group of friends, and we don't really fit in with anybody...preps/jocks/cheerleaders/goths/whatever. We're just us, and I love that

Im not going to lie to you, Im telling you how it is. And this can differ since we dont go to the same high school and dont have the same teachers. Im in my junior year. High school for me has been a blast. Yeah...sometimes you can be totally stressed over homework, but then, yeah...you get to meet so many new people! It kinda evens out.

After awhile, it will be just like any other grade, whether 3rd or 8th grade. The only difference is that the courses are a bit harder, or atleast they should be...LoL

It all depends on you. Do you like school now? Im just telling you my side! OH...and DONT be intimidated by upper classmen..geez..LoL

Hey Lucky!

I loved my first year of high school. I'm going into my sophomore year, and only in one year I met my best friends, got asked out twice, found a guy I totally loved (and may have found another one tonight, who knows?) and actually started to have a life! Hah, I still pretty much don't, but you sound like I was in middle school, I'm much happier now. Join clubs, you become friends with everyone. And you never sleep- not until second semester senior year. Hope I've helped!

High school basically sucked for me. I was stuck in a boys school - great academically, but I'm not the playboy-reading perv most of em were.

Then I finished and started university. WAY WAY WAY more work, but I made some awesome friends, and it was fun in a weird sort of way.

Now if only there was some way to mix 18 hour days and a social life... ;p

ok i live in england in a small county and i go to an all girls private school and have done all my life. I started high school when i was 12 and for the first 2 years it was a blast i was in loads of clubs and teams and had a really good group of mates. then when i went in to my 3rd year everything started to change i was really ill a few weeks after school started with an illness no one could identify which made it even harder. so when i went in to school for a few days no one believed i was ill not even my friends and things started to go down hill. i was bullied by the people i thought were my friends, i thought the whole world was against me and that no one understood how i felt. eventually i left that school and i started at my new school in january. i knew a few people there from junior school but on my first day there i met a brilliant friend who has become one of the people i would trust with my life. i have a really brilliant group of mates and i am on loads of teams. and during all of this boyfriends have come and gone but my current boyfriend is probably my best friend he is going through a hard time at the moment and i am trying to be there for him because i know how it feels to have no one stand by you. but really i think high school is a blast and enjoy it while it lasts because once its gone you can't get it back

On monday I start school at a brand new school. I like high school alright, I'm going into 10th grade but since they built a new school, all my friends I made in 9th grade are staying at the old high school. That kinda sucks. I don't think I will like the new school, all the kids who live in the school zone are preppy and shallow. No one cares about learning anymore. It's all about your social life. So I guess if all my friends won't be there I can concentrate on my work more. I just hate how stupid teenagers are nowadays.

No. It doesn't get any better. Get your GED and go to college. Now, before it's too late. 10th grade and on was a total waste.

I thought that high school was better than middle school. For one, it was much more interesting, and you didn't know every single person in the whole school. And if you wanted to avoid a certain clique, it could be done. One really good thing is that most high schools have weighted classes (honors, college-prep, standard, etc), so you can hang out with people near your own intelligence level (most of the time). High school is where you begin to have a little choice over your classes. At my school, there were a bunch of pre-requisites for graduation, and more if you wanted to go to college, but that still left at least 1 class per year that you could choose on your own.

I was almost always really burnt out my freshman year. I joined 2 sports, and was in band, and the rehearsals, coupled with the homework was a lot to handle.

well, for me, junior high was the same way, and yes, h.s. DID suck, but it was better.

for one thing, it seems like people do actually mature a bit. they have enough going on that they don't need to rag on you AS MUCH about your personal style (clothing, attitudes, etc). it seems like also there are more groups of people that you can mingle with and figure out what you're like.

sorry this was sort of semi-intelligible but I'm REALLY tired.

Well, I moved from Texas to Missouri right before my sophomore year and went into a major depression, so high school (at least the last 3 years) pretty much stank. However, a great deal of that was my own fault. I'd agree strongly with one of the main pieces of advice others have given: GET INVOLVED. Join clubs that interest you and get to know people. About the middle of my senior year I woke up and realized that there were all these really nice people I never got to know because I was too involved in my own problems.

The awfulness of high school did have one good result though...I vowed I wouldn't let the same thing happen in college. I joined some groups where I had interest and developed a small but faithful group of friends, and it all was MUCH better.

I think (though this was certainly a while ago) that high school is infinately better than junior high school on many levels.

I had mixed experiences in high school, based on two different schools. The one I started out at was a public school, where most times I had to be sent to private lessons and classes because even the honors classes were way below my level. I also had advanced music classes I had to be taken out of other classes for. Combine that with being one of only two kids with pink and red hair, fishnets and combat boots....it wasn't a comfortable fit for me at all. At all. Yucko.

However, in the middle of my sophomore year, I auditioned for and got into a performing arts school which had just opened (in Chicago, which is now doing really well and is far bigger) and had really, some of the best years of my life. I was able to focus completely on what I wanted to, get specialized teachers and classes to meet my level of study, and hang out with a school full (well, it wasn't full, I graduated with only 22 others, but still...) of other kids that were as driven and creative as I was, with teachers who liked that about us instead of resenting it. I have really fond memories of being able to walk down the street to the Lyric Opera for my voice lessons and have them in the huge, gilded auditorium, do ad hoc pieces with any number of students at any time during the day, and I made some great friends, and boyfriends and girlfriends. because all of us were there to study our arts, it was a little less of a social experience than most highschools are, but it was perfect for me. if you're creative and have some training already to get in with, I'd highly reccomend it.

In fact, college was an utter nightmare because it didn't cater even half that well to my needs.

But again, as Lady said, it's about how much you get involved, so long as you have a good fit you can work with at the school you are at. had I stood on the sidelines or simply bided my time in school, I would have been bored and miserable.

High school is what you make it to be. It can be boring and full of negativity or it can be exciting and full of fun. Whichever one you choose for it to be is going to be what it is.

i think that it all depends on your mood. if things are alright but not "great" and your in a happy mood, then everything will seem alot better, than when it does when youre in a bad mood. Its as good as u make it.

High school can be a bitch, just like middle school- but let me tell you, it's a very worth-while experience. In high school you go through a lot of **** but you come out with a lot of knoweledge and a few new friends.

My suggestion to have the best high school years is to join clubs (try to get a friend to join w/ you if you're really shy like i was) and just be yourself. really... don't be one of those "fake" people and you'll gain respect from many others. Try to do well in your classes, it will hurt you later if you don't (i know firsthand...)-- and start looking at colleges freshman year cuz you might as well get a head start. Search the web-- www.collegeboard.com etc-- yahoo.com has a good listing if you look up "colleges."

Good luck in high school! For me, I got one year left and I hope to make it a great one.

ps: don't EVER listen to your guidance counselors (unless you get real lucky and get a good one... if there is such a thing.) -- Do all research on what classes you need to take by yourself. Looking up particular colleges you want to go to during freshman year helps a lot. E-mail the schools and ask what courses in high school they require so you don't end up having to take something senior year that you coulda taken before instead of a class your guidance counselor insisted you "needed" when you don't really... ok... good luck Again.

As my mother, who teaches 8th grade, always says: "Anyone who thinks high school was the best time of their life really peaked too early -- there's so much more to look forward to."

I hated high school with a passion. Things got dramatically better when I left. The important thing, no matter where you are in your schooling, is that if you aren't enjoying yourself, it's not your last chance. Time goes on, you will be done with it eventually, and in the meantime, there's plenty to learn that will be useful to you when you're finished and enjoying how much better things are getting for you.

So far, I have enjoyed High School. So what if my best friend of 7 years dumped me for her boyfriend and his (and now her) drug habit...and death threats...All of that is over. My freshman year I was put in Algebra 3-4, or third year math. I did well, and I got into drama. I had my crushes (6 months) and made friends. Your freshman year is incredibly important. If you mess up then, you are completely screwed. The upperclassemn will typically leave ya alone. And try to get to know a few. It helps a lot.

hmmm.... high school's been the best school I've ever been in so far. however, that isn't saying too much when you consider that I was the kid that everyone always tortured from kindergarten up through 8th grade - they would beat me up and throw things at me and call me "mental freak" because I was smarter than they were. (Not smart enough to dodge a punch, you'll say. And you will be correct.)

So, anyway, apart from the odd rock here and there, no projectiles have come my way in high school. I've met some pretty cool friends, who have (with only two exceptions) been completely supportive of me when I came out to them. I've had some really great teachers and courses (tenth grade english and AP US History come to mind) and some really crappy ones (precalculus and eleventh grade english come to mind). It's a cliché of this thread by now, but it's true: h.s. is what you make of it. Join the clubs, find some decent friends, and don't get sucked in by the vacuum heads of the cheerleader set. They're like a puddle of pretty poison on the ground - dangerous, shallow, yet ultimately below everyone else.

i'm going into grade ten, my freshman year was ab fab! my life has gotten a lot better over this summer too. but i think you really just need to take personal initative, and gain confidence, and a few really good friends.. thats most important. Things change eventually. I was really unpopula rin grade school, and in JH i had a look of gal pals and no guy attention in a sexual way, and i just realized this summe that it's really all up to me. and things have been going realy well

Hmm, socially or academically? For me, I was similar to you- junior high I was a complete outcast, and so used to it that it ALMOST didn't bother me anymore. Frosh year was the same- then I got involved. Drama and so on... and things have been great. Socially, I've never had as much fun, and from what I've seen with other people the way to have that fun is get into activities. You get out what you put in, mostly. Now, academically you may not learn a ton (I can't say it was too terribly productive for me) but, if you find some things to get into, it's all good. A big part is attitude- our school is all about jocks and cheerleaders, but we drama geeks are secure in ourselves and quite happy (even if we think it's irritating that we can't charge more for our shows than the football team does for their games. )

Good luck.

In the UK its a bit different. Fist we can go to a nursery school (kindergarten) between 2 and 4 years old, then at 4 we go to primary school, then at 11 we go to secondary school, then at 16-17 we go into sixth form (which can be at a new school or the same school as the secondary school) for 2 years, then its university.
Anyway, for me secondary school was great, and I've just joined a new sixth form, and i find that great too - meeting new people can really broaden your perspectives!

Hello!Don't even worry bout it!Highschool is what you make of it(and it depends on the highschool you attend),but in general high school was a blast!You get a lot more freedome in the classes you choose,and bieng a senior is the best!All I can say is get involved in extra ciricular activites(Volleyball,basketball,softball),it's a great way to meet people and get aquianted with your school,if that's not your style then try other school activities(chior,drama,
colorgaurd,cheerleading)the idea is to stay busy!Take it from me that helps school to go by quicker and you can take out a bad day at practice,or forget about a bad day at pract
ice well good luck...
With Love,
Sandra

i guess im different than most. i loved junior high, and had a lot of friends. but i went to high school and hated it so much that i dropped out! but dont do what i did. just stick with it. i wouldve graduated in the year 2000 if i wouldve stayed in, but i thought that was too far away, and now i see that time went by so fast. i dont really regret my decision but most people do. so try your best to have fun. good luck!
