If you have recently moved, or are making the jump up to a new school, there are some things that you should do to make sure that you are ready for the jump to the new school. You might have gone to your old school for a long time now, and you might be used to doing things a certain way, or you might be thinking that coming into a new school will be no sweat for you. Regardless of what your mindset is coming into a new school, here are some things you should do.
When you come into a new school for the first time, you should make sure that you are being humble a little bit. Make sure that you are fitting in, and try to do what you can to blend in a little bit. There is nothing worse than sticking out, or giving the kids who have already been there calling you out, and making fun of you already. That is the best way to make sure that you have no new friends to be made.
One of the best things you can do if you are going to a new school is to go to that school as early as possible. Walk around the building, and get to know where everything is. The more comfortable with the surroundings that you are, the easier it will be to start taking care of things like making friends, and doing your homework. Getting past the nervousness of not knowing where you are is huge.
Just realize that you might take some time to adjust to things. You might not have friends right away, or maybe you might be more popular at your new school. Whatever happens, make sure that you give yourself time to adjust to it. You don’t want to do something, or say something that would have people questioning if you really are as cool as people think you are. You don’t want to seem impatient either, so just take your time adjusting to new surroundings.
Just relax. Don’t worry about being the top of the class, or acting out to get attention. It might work in the short run, but it never really works in the long run. All it gets you is on the bad side of teachers, and makes your parents wonder what is so wrong with you this time.
To get ready for a new school, just let your surroundings become comfortable. After that you can go on and make friends, and try to become the talk of the town if you want. Just have fun, be yourself, and have a good year.
