Ready : What You Need To Know
You’re already halfway through middle school. In just a couple years, you’ll be in high school, and then the next thing you know, you’ll be graduating!
Your grades will start counting toward your college application in 9th grade, so if you haven’t perfected your study habits, now is the time. You should also start thinking about courses you can take that match your interests. Do you love reading? Take an Honors English class. Do you want to visit another country? Ask if your school offers foreign languages to 7th graders. Trying new and interesting things will help you do better in school.
