Succeeding in High School: A Handbook for Teens and Parents plus A College Admissions Primer

Joseph Adegboyega-Edun

Succeeding in High School captures the essence of what matters to high school teens. It teaches students coping skills, study skills, organization skills, test preparation skills and more

 

What happens when a high school student finds himself in another school district a thousand miles away from where he schooled last year? Expected and unexpected challenges develop. First of all, the student’s parents need to understand that they are not the only ones dealing with the stress due to relocation.

 

Their high school teenager is dealing with different types of stress, for example, the friends he no longer has around him, a different neighborhood and a seemingly alien school environment. What will this new school be like? Can he fit in? If he plays sports, will he get on the team?

 

If he doesn’t play sports, how does he gain new friends? If he experienced any bullying in his previous school, he would be concerned about bullying at this new school. His parents would want to know how the school handles bullying and related issues. To make friends, a new student can look for interest clubs on the school’s website to see which one suits him. He can write an email to the club sponsor for more information or to become a member. Joining an interest club opens an avenue for him to make new friends.

Parents of and students from international countries get step-by-step information on what they need to know and what such students need to do to adjust to an American High School. Students from international countries where the first language is not English need to be ready to take a placement test in English. Initially, they might or might not experience some difficulty in subject areas requiring extensive reading and writing. After that initial period of adjustment, they will find that the rest of their high school journey is much easier. It is always important to ask school personnel questions whenever parents suspect that their student is experiencing difficulties at school. It always helps to do this earlier than later.

 

The four years of high school are the foundation for what happens next. There are several options open to students after a successful completion of their high school education. Some take a gap year, others go to college while others may join the armed forces. A gap year may include travel abroad, work, or volunteer service prior to attending college. The college application process is competitive and requires student’s undivided attention because of its many components. It includes a college search, the application and financial aid research. Students interested in the armed forces may apply to  the military academies or seek to enlist in a branch of the armed forces of interest to them. Others may seek admission to a university with an ROTC on campus. A student who reads this book will find, as one of its reviewers has written, that it is a roadmap for college and for life.
