High school is basically exactly the same as junior high. Going to a school where you don't know anyone is good, since others won't recognize you, more people will come and say hi. On my first day, other kids said hi about twenty times. I didn't look for friends, they came to me. I met my best friend that day. You don't have to worry about being shy!
Public school might be harder than a private school, but still doable. Just try to talk to people at lunch. Good luck!
Getting to know someone straight away will help considerably. Don't wait for someone to come to you, they won't.
Look around your class for a person who looks like they'd be nice. Go up and chat with them. You mentioned you were shy, so take a deep breath, then introduce yourself in a clear manner, sit near them, and try and find something to talk about (summer break, TV shows, video games, the weather, books, ect ect...). It should take off from there on its own.
Good luck! ^-^
Uh... I was at the bottom of the heap in high school... middle school... most of elementary school... So basically im not really the one to ask. But I was from a totally different world when I switched schools back in elementary. Country instead of city, stubborn so I didn't conform to their standards, no clue what the internet was (not kidding) didn't know tv had more than 1 channel (again. not kidding)
But you should be fine :) you know more than I did.
Make sure to study really hard in 7th grade because 8th is basically the same just harder and more information
Wow good luck.I'm SO jealous.I start 7th grade
Ok I will try thanks for the advice
I'm extremely shy as well around new people, but my best advice is to try and push your comfort levels just a bit when meeting people. It will be hard with shyness, I know that, but if you can push that comfort level just a bit so it doesn't hurt you- then that's a great feeling once you accomplish it. Also, join clubs and groups that interest you because then you'll meet people by default. High school is easiest when you have at least one good friend- so try and accomplish that.
Well, hopefully someone will come to you or something along that line. What I mean is for me at least (I have the same problem about being extremely shy) when you get put at tables or like when people sit near you in general it's hard for some people not to break the silence. When I went to Middle School I only knew like 2 people in all of my classes and I didn't get to sit at a table with them, and then I sat at a table with this person named Alyssa and because of that we're great friends now.
