My daughter is very excited for high school and she is also nervous too. She wonders,"What if nobody likes me?", and "What if I don't like the kids?" or "What if I get suspended?" so I plan to get her ready...she only has four more months of elementary school. She's heard all kinds of stories about high school that's scary for her, such as Grade 12 students beating up Grade 8 students because many fictions do say that the older teens are mean to the younger ones and all kinds of rumors that about what she calls 'popularity' and 'coolness'. I told her that it's more like elementary school but she will have 8 classes per day, a locker, more people, and school starts and ends around the same time.
