How To Prepare For The Next School Year For Senior High School Students

Not to pressure you but let’s face it—school year 2019-2020 is just around the corner. Whether you spent your summer break checking everything on your bucket list, hustling through every gig, or completing your internship program, having a back-to-school preparation can help as you return to the regular classes again.  

With only a couple of weeks left, here’s how you can save yourself from the nerve-cracking start of school year:

During summer break

Review your lessons.

As early as summer vacation, you can already jumpstart your senior high education. Gathering your notes from the previous year and reviewing them is a great way to prepare yourself mentally. You don’t have to study for long hours. Just do a quick refresher of the lessons to get your mind ready for studying. You can contact your college department and ask for the course syllabus. Through this way, you can already prepare for any subject you might need extra help in the future.

Set your goals.

Whether you want to get high grades, buy a new gadget, or pursue a passion this coming school year, setting the right goals can help you stay motivated and active. Here’s how to achieve your goals in senior high school.

Buy your school supplies.

Don’t wait till the last minute to shop for your school supplies. Create a list of items you’ll need to for the next school year such as pens and binder notebooks. Then schedule a trip to your local shop a couple of weeks before the official start of classes to avoid the long lines. This will also give you a chance to freely select the items that you want while there are still plenty of stocks.

Here’s a helpful guide in choosing the right school shoes for you. You can also consider these bag reviews for every kind of student as you write your list.

Ready your documents.

If you’re an incoming senior high school student, some of the important documents you’ll need are birth certificate (from the Philippine Statistics Authority), certificate of good moral character from your previous school, class report card (form 138), and form 137. Keep these documents in one clean, dry place so that you don’t have to look for them when the enrollment season comes. Some institutions may require you to present a valid government ID. If you don’t have a valid ID yet, here’s how you can get one.

During enrollment days

Take a trip to your school.

Familiarize yourself with your school’s buildings and facilities. Know the different routes to your school, what are the peak hours of traffic, and how much the transportation is. See how much time it would take you to get to your school during rush hours so you can adjust your preparation time.

Start to establish your daily routine.

Set your bedtime and get used to waking up early. To have full energy for school day, you need to have enough rest. If you keep on staying up all night now, you may encounter difficulties in getting up for morning schedules.

Know your professors.

Talk to an alumnus/alumna or senior schoolmate and ask about your professor. There are different types of professors that you’ll meet in school. Some are cool professors that make learning fun while there are some “terror” profs that can be very strict. You’ll surely don’t want to make a bad impression on the first day of class. Here’s how to deal with your terror professors.

Before your first day of school

Pack your things.

Prepare your school bag ready in advance so you won’t miss anything. Don’t forget to bring your school ID, registration form, class cards and extra pens. Ready clothes that are comfortable because you may have to do a number of activities during your first day.

Set your alarm.

If you’re not an early bird, it would be helpful to set an alarm so you don’t oversleep and wind up late for class. If you don’t set an alarm during the night, you may wake up during the night and keep looking at your clock to see if it’s time to wake up. This can cause you anxiety and prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.

Put your phone down and sleep.

Disconnect your phone from the internet an hour before your bedtime. If you must use your phone, use a blue light filter to help your body secrete Melatonin (sleep hormone) better. Use an actual alarm clock instead of your phone’s alarm. However, if you must use your phone as your alarm clock, set it to Flight mode and place it out of your arm’s reach.

Bonus tips to help on the first day of school:

  • Wake up on the first alarm.
  • Avoid being late on your first day of class.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Cheer up and keep calm.
