If you are about to start high school or it’s already your first year, I want to help you understand what high school really is, and which high school myths you should debunk today.

No, don’t expect Regina George and her clique to kick you off their table in the cafeteria, or to be shoved in a locker on your first day;

sometimes high school life portrayed in movies is very far from the truth!2

Here are 7 high school myths that you should be aware of...

1. Freshman Fridays

You can breathe easy on your first day because freshman Friday is one of the top high school myths!

Although upperclassmen do feel superior to the incoming freshman, they won’t get physical.

Unless of course you mess with the wrong kids, but other than that, don’t stress.

It’s even possible that your first friend in school may actually be a senior!

2. These Will Be the Best Years of Your Life

I don’t want to be too negative, but no matter what anyone says, high school experiences are different for everyone.

It’s the period of your life when you grow up and find out who you are, and while those are the best memories for some, they are not for others.2

Nonetheless, high school is a period of your life you will never forget!

3. High School Friends Are Friends for Life

Here you are, coming into high school with your middle school friends, expecting to be friends until the end — but stop right there, because many things can change through the course of 4 years.

High school is the time to find yourself, and if you and your friend are not looking for the same thing, chances are that you would go your separate ways.

So don’t depend too much on your old friends and let independence take over.
