How to Start in a New School

Learn More About the School

The first step is to learn more about the school you will be attending. Taking a tour of the campus to see the installations will give you a better idea of the vibe the school has. It will also be a good chance to learn where your classrooms are. Additionally, you should try researching the school to learn about its philosophies, its history, and more. Knowing all of this will give you a better idea of what to expect, which can help you feel more at ease about the situation.

Prepare What You'll Need

There will be a lot of things you won't be able to control as you go into a new school, which is what may be making you nervous. If that's true for you, then focus on the aspects of the change that you can easily control, such as preparing what you will need for school. For example, you will have to think about the supplies you need. You can also start packing your backpack to ensure you have everything. Washing, ironing, and having your clothing ready is another step you can take to be prepared.

Care for How You Look

Appearances aren't the most valuable thing about a person. However, making a good first impression is important when attending a new school. To that end, you do need to care for how you present yourself. Of course, hygiene is a must, so shower, wear clean clothing, and put on deodorant to be pleasant to the senses. As for the actual outfit, when picking something to wear for your first day, opt for something that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

Make an Effort to Meet New People

Something you will have to do is make an effort to meet new people. It will have to happen eventually, and getting to it from the get-go will help make the new school less intimidating. For that reason, it's imperative that you start introducing yourself to the new people around you. Turn to your teachers for advice and talk to your classmates to start creating relationships with them. If needed, you could even ask them to introduce you to others. In the end, the school will start seeming more familiar and welcoming.

Get Involved With the School

And speaking of making the school less intimidating and more familiar, you should get involved with its diverse activities and teams. Joining the football team, the debate club, or attending a function or social event is a great way to meet new people and to start making your way into the school's community. Before you know it, you'll start having friends there, as well as activities that will make going to school a much more enjoyable experience.

Keep in Touch With Old Friends

Needless to say, probably the hardest thing about starting in a new school is not having your friends around at all times. After going to school with them, you grew accustomed to seeing them every single day. Still, not all is lost, even if you changed schools. Nowadays, there are a myriad different ways to keep in touch with your old friends: from making plans to meet them in person regularly, to calling them on the phone, or most easily, talking to them online. Talk to them with regularity during your adaptation process so you don't feel as lonely.

Think Positively

A last but incredibly crucial tip is that you should try to remain as positive as you can. For starters, you should realize that your negative thoughts will only hold you back, and will keep you from making the most out of the situation. It's also important that you make an effort to find the good in the situation (e.g. meeting new people and trying new things) and think of this as a growing experience. Lastly, it's very important that you believe in yourself. Trust in your abilities and know that you can do this.
