How did you adjust when you started going to high school? What did you find easy to deal with, and what was challenging?

Can we talk about the classes I want to take in high school?

Can we talk about the sports, clubs, or activities I'm interested in?

Will you go with me to visit the high school to take a tour and talk to some of the counselors and teachers?

Can we sit down with a school counselor and plan out my class schedule?

If I have difficulty studying or getting all my homework done in high school, what can we do to fix it?

In high school, I will have more responsibilities, but also more freedoms. Will my life at home change in the same way? Will any rules change?
