Learn about the courses available to you, and choose your courses wisely. “Take courses that will prepare you for your future. I want to be a nurse, so I’m taking as many science and math courses as I can.” Mia Greater need for organization In high school, you have more activities, more homework, and more responsibilities than you have ever had before. To keep up with everything, you need to be organized and have good time management skills. “Between my schoolwork, soccer, and everything else I’m doing, I have to be organized.” Josh An emphasis on academics In high school, the courses are more difficult and your grades are more important. Your high school grades will help determine the kinds of jobs you can get, and the colleges you’ll be able to get into. “I’m taking college prep courses and working hard so that I can go to college. My goal is to have a 3.0 GPA when I graduate.” Maria
