What I Wish I’d Known About Transitioning to UHS: Current 9th and 10th graders share words of wisdom FOCUS on classes more than pointless drama (Don’t create drama) Be ready to WORK! Stay on top of your priorities: School First! Any missing work can drop grades very quickly and easily. It’s not so BIG. Not so BAD. There are no quarters, only semesters. You keep your grade until the end of the semester. It’s not big, and it is easy to get around. Stay up on work. Put school before anything else. AP Prep classes aren’t as hard as they seem, so try them. Your grade can go from an “A” to an “F” in a day! Use Study Support to get homework done. Make sure you do all your work and study for tests or you will fail!! Don’t get too excited. Keep up with your work. Get involved with sports or clubs. The seniors “upper-classmen” are not mean. They become your friends. It’s not that big, you won’t get lost. Do ALL work and homework so the teachers will leave you alone. I wish I had known there were three floors. Avoid the middle staircase (when possible). Use Study Support wisely. Always dress for PE! Stay on Ms. Yarber’s good side. Keep good study habits and do your homework. Join Drama Club. Ask a lot of questions because everything might not come as easy as it did in middle school. Take as many classes as you can. Know what you want to be in the future. Be prepared for hard work. Pick your friends wisely. Don’t be upset if you drift from your friends. High school is fun. First thing you have to know is to follow the flow of people. The halls get really crowded, but keep your head up and concentrate; you will have success.
