It's perfectly normal to be nervous about starting a new school. Remember that you are there primarily for the academics. You'll make friends in your classes. Prep schools are usually smaller, so there should be fewer students in your classes, which gives you a better opportunity to get to know your classmates better. Join some extracurricular activities that interest you; it's a great way to meet people and looks marvelous on college resumes. Just be yourself, and force yourself to make small talk with other people. You should be fine, just have some confidence. I hope you enjoy your new school and have a great year.
It will be good for you.
And its never hard to make new friends and you can always hang out with your old ones.
Don't stress out over it. You might like it. Give it a chance. Maybe you'll make lots of friends. You never know.
I am sorry to hear that for YOUR sake!
but i have gone to a prep school so i am fine.
it wont be to bad, its stressful at first but it will get better, i changed schools dozens of times and met new people each time it wasnt that badd. just dont worry about it to much. good luck with school :)
Well, i moved a lot when i was growing up and know how nerve wracking starting somewhere new on your own is. Usually it's best in any new scene to lay low a bit.. but mostly, be yourself. If you let yourself concentrate on getting up to speed in the academics, it will help ease the dullness of not having your usual crew of friends around. If you just make sure you're getting all you can educationally from the new school, all the while casually being your (what i'm assuming to be brilliant) self. the right kind of people will start coming around to see about you.
If you try to keep an open mind, being new in school can be pretty fun too. You're brand new there... noone knows how you've always been.. so you can be how ever you want to be... know what i mean?
Anyways.. that's just my opinion. Good luck, take a breath.. go kick some butt :P
Remember the last time you were "so nervous"..in about a week it'll all fall into place, and you will get your routine down..and remember, if you start to feel lost, "communication" is the key, talk to kids in your class, talk to your teacher, talk to counsellors and even directors..you are not expected to know this stuff, you are expected to learn it. That is all those peoples jobs...and if you don't speak up a.s.a.p, then they don't know their job is not getting done. You'll be fine, and a couple years into it, you'll wonder what you were so worried about. Don't concentrate as much on the friends.you'll click with people in your classes...but remember, it's like reality shows, your not there to make friends.keep your eye on the prize, and that is your education for your future.....Good Luck.
My advice to you is just to go in there do your best, do what you supposed to do and everything will fall into places.
