How to Start in a New School

Gather More Information About the New School

The unknown can be pretty scary to anyone. That's why, if you feel intimidated about attending a new school, one of the things you can do is get to know more about it. Learning more can make the school seem more familiar and not as intimidating. To that end, you should tour the campus and see the installations. While you're on your visit, get a sense of the vibe of the place and picture yourself going to classes there. It's also recommended that you search for your classrooms, so you're not lost on your first day. Other than that, you may also want to research the school: its history, its philosophy, and more, so you can have a better idea of what to expect.

Get Your Things Ready

Being in a situation that you can't control may also be a source of stress for some people, which is why they may be dreading attending a new school. If this sounds like you, then you should breathe in deeply and focus on the things that you can control for now. Simply gathering your things for school can help you feel more at ease. That's why, you should get your school supplies ready, pack your backpack, and put your outfits together. Having these taken care of may allow you to calm your nervous energy a bit.

Consider How You Present Yourself

First impressions, looks, and more, aren't the end all, be all things you may believe they are. However, they do hold a bit of weight and can affect your first days at school. This is why you should consider how you will present yourself to your new classmates and teachers. This includes choosing an outfit for the big event. Pick something you feel confident and comfortable in, so you can put your best face forward. It should go without saying that taking care of your hygiene is also paramount (for this and any other day): take a shower, brush your teeth, put on deodorant, and wear clean clothing.

Make an Effort to Meet New People

To others, the most intimidating aspect about starting a new school is not knowing anyone there. This can make the experience of going to school seem colder and a lot less inviting. However, even if you are a bit anxious about talking to people, you need to make an effort. Little by little, you'll start to feel more comfortable in your new school. A great, simple step to take is to introduce yourself to your new peers and teachers. If needed, ask them to introduce you to other people. The more people you know there, the less intimidated you'll be.

Participate in School Activities

Continuing with the effort to make the place seem more familiar, you should participate in school activities. Even if they aren't really your thing, doing it at first will allow you to meet more people and become part of their community. Your school probably has sport teams, clubs, functions, parties, and more, that you can look into and get involved with. Do it to become integrated with the school life.

Contact Your Old Friends

What you'll miss the most from your old school will probably be the friends that you made there, and with good reason: if they were your classmates, you saw them every day. Not having that regular contact with them will no doubt be weird. Nonetheless, there are many other ways to contact them: you can meet them regularly, talk to them over the phone or stay in touch online. Talk to them through your adaptation process to make it go over more smoothly.

Remain Positive

Lastly, try to keep an open and positive mind about the whole situation. Yes, it may not be an ideal situation for you, but focusing on the negative will only make you more frustrated. Instead, find the silver lining in it and make an effort to trust in yourself and your abilities. If you remain positive, you'll stop fighting against yourself, and you'll be able to embrace and enjoy the change.
