  If you care about school and plan to go to college, this article is for you! There are a lot of ways to do well in school and these are only some of them, so to start off I have listed some things that you need to do in order to be confident about yourself.


 You always need to carry your agenda, or planner as some teachers call it; keeping track of your homework and assignments is very important. bring it to every class- you never know when you might need it.

 If you are having trouble with your assignments, ask the teacher for some help. The teachers are (mostly) nice and friendly and will help you with your problem.

  Know where everything in the classroom is. If you are absent from school one day, then you need to know how and where to get the assignments that you missed.

  Pay attention in class; sometimes you will be doing something and then next thing you know you have an assignment that you don’t know what to do with.

 Take notes, notes are a very useful for studying for tests, all you have to do is take out your notes and start preparing.

  Keep your area neat so you’ll know where your things are.

  Be prepared for each class, bringing the materials you need for your next class.

Doing your homework

 When you are doing homework, go to your room or a study space with little distractions and close the door(s)

 Do difficult homework when you are mentally and physically at your best, not late at night, or when you are hungry.

  Use study schedules, set aside an hour every school evening for homework or a review of notes for your next test or quiz.

  If you can do each of these things everyday and you can do them well then you are all set and hopefully you will start passing your classes!
