Success Tip of the Week

Work In Groups.

In many high schools, individual work is stressed, but this is not high school. Students who seek out study groups and connect with their peers over academic content have greater academic success and satisfaction during their four years.  You should find 3-6 people who you are acquainted with, but not necessarily best friends. It’s not that it is impossible to do effective studying with your best friend, but it is sometimes too tempting to discuss your day’s events or this weekend’s activities rather than focusing on the material at hand. Observe your classmates. Which students seem actively engaged, are taking detailed notes, and participate in class? These will likely be the most reliable, helpful people to include in your groupClick here for more tips on forming a good study group.
