High school is going to be a big step in your life. It's a right of passage and everyone has to go through it. It will not define you as a person but it will help you discover the person that you want to be. Some choices you make will be regretted and others you will want to continue living, over and over. My advice to you would be to take your schedule seriously, make plans, and be involved in your school and/or community.
High school is the path to college. If you make a mistake along the way in your classes, that mistake will affect your chances of getting into your dream college. If you do fall behind or fail a class, take adult school. Don't let yourself get so far behind that you can't catch back up. If you have anything below a C- in a class, retake that class instead of moving on to a more difficult class and failing that, as well. For example, if you barely passed geometry, DON'T take Algebra II. It looks better on transcripts if you have retaken a class and succeeded instead of barely passing a class and doing the same in the next class.
