High School is a very important time in life, so there are a few things to know before starting your high school journey.

Key Points:

  • Have fun! High school is a simpler time in many ways and you have the freedom to get involved in activities that may not be available post high school.
  • Don’t get carried away with fun. Make good choices, know your priorities, and don’t get into trouble.
  • You are who you hang out with so choose the right kind of friends. 
  • Don’t be an Uncle Rico. 

Quote This:

High school is what kind of grows you into the person you are. I have great memories, good and bad, some learning experiences and some that I’ll take with me the rest of my life. -Giancarlo Stanton
