Adjusting to In-Person School



If you spent a year and a half sitting in front of a computer all day, you might still be adjusting to in-person school. But even if this fall is the first time you stepped on campus, it’s still possible to be successful in your classes and mitigate stress and anxiety. 


Be patient 

In any class you take, it’s important to understand what is expected of you and what you need to do in order to be successful. This often takes time, which is why many students struggle at the beginning of the year. Additionally, if you are taking a KAP or AP class, getting used to the workload can be difficult at first. In the meantime, be patient and work hard until your grades are where you want them to be. 


Ask for help 

Whether you need help with classes, mental health, or anything else, don’t hesitate to ask for help. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to a teacher, friend, or family member, the counselors are always available to help students, and everything you say is confidential unless the counselors believe you are in danger. 


Take care of yourself 

Between school, extracurriculars, and for some students, work, it can be difficult to find time to rest in your schedule. While taking a break may seem like a waste of time, resting will allow you to focus and do your best when you do work on homework. It’s also important to take care of your health by getting enough sleep, drinking water, and exercising regularly. Set small goals for yourself to create good habits and consistency.
