Your Freshman Year
Transition - Building a Solid Foundation
- Settle into the routine of high school.
- Use your student handbook to learn about North High procedures and policies. It is also a good tool to help you keep assignments and homework organized.
- Develop effective study habits.
- Realize that attendance and tardies do matter. Strive to be to school and class on time.
- Get to know your teachers and your counselor. Seek them out if you have questions or need help.
- Familiarize yourself with the academic resources within the school: resource centers, peer tutoring, library services, etc.
- Realize that freshman grades do count.
- Get involved! Join a club, organization and/or sports team.
- Take inventory of yourself. What subjects do you like? What outside activities give you pleasure?
- What areas of study might you like to explore in more depth over the next three years?
- Have at least one serious talk with your parents about your future, your plans, and expectations they might have for you.
