What is high school like?

Home More advice Education & School

High school is going to start next year for me and I'll be in Grade 9. I have seen the inside of a high school in real life only two times. I'm leaving behind so many of my closest friends... and since we won't have 1 permanent class the entire year like middle school, I might not be in the classes with my friends who will be there. The reason I would like to know more about high school now is because lately I've been so nervous and I'm worried it will be a lot different then I expected. Many people have told me the high school I am going to is very good and 98% bully free, so that's great news. My main curiosities about high school are: - Is the work really that hard? - What are the differences between middle and high school? - How can I survive the first year of being in a new place surrounded by new people? - What are things I should stay away from, if there are any?

Thank you to whoever helped. I appreciate it. :)
