Tips for High School Students From a High School Student
19 Installments—Entirely free
"Tips for High School Students" was a project created by high-school student Michele Zimmerman as part of her internship with DailyLit, made possible by the Her Honor mentoring program. For more information about the program, visit their website: herhonor.org.
This is a collection of tips for high school students written by a high school senior. While discussing high school and the college application process with her friends, the author found that she and her friends wished that they had figured some things out much sooner than they did. She also discovered that over the years, they had managed to think of some creative and effective ways of handling the academic and social aspects of high school. These helpful hints for teens are a combination of advice on what proved to work for the author as well as what she feels every student should do in order to be successful.

Hi I'm Hayden and I just read your work.
Thank you so much for the inspiration. I'm a Year 9 student and we're having our Annual exams next week which will determine our places for Year 10 (2012). After reading this, I've just been so inspired to open my books and try to have fun with studies. I have 2 days to study and I'm sure I will make the most of it ! Thanks for the help ....

I'm a high school student and didn't even finish reading this. It wasn't any good. High schoolers hear this stuff all the time anyway. We don't need to read about it, too.

Very generic. Each tip too brief to have much value.
Reading on behalf of my middle-school son. I can't imagine him reading this would make him a more successful or happier student. I could be wrong.
Maybe reading the right nugget at the right time could provide a timely jiggle/whack.
I'm hoping Cal Newport's coming-soon non-free High-School Superstar book will be a whole lot better than this thing.
