How to Survive High School

Join a Sports Team 1 of 9

The years you spend in high school are supposed to be some of the best of your life, but sometimes high school is just brutal. Making it through all four years unscathed isn't something that everyone can do, so use these tips to ensure your success!

Probably the best advice that I can give any high school freshman is to join at least one sports team. These extracurricular activities will eat up a lot of your free time, but there is no better way to make long-lasting friendships. Join a sport that starts training in the summer, like football or soccer; and by the time school starts, you'll already have a ton of friends! Sports stars also get the benefit of automatic popularity, which means your social calendar should be booked during the offseason.
