Here's what other kids had to say:

Hello dear IML'ers! Hope everyone's having a good summer. We have some sad news today. :-( Due to a shift in focus away from tweens, PBS funding for It's My Life updates has been discontinued until further notice. This includes moderating the You Said It pages. It's devastating to us at IML because we love what we do. We fought hard to keep these pages available to you guys who rely on them and make them so great, and haven't given up yet. We're still out there, looking for more funding. In the meantime, no new YSI posts will be approved, unfortunately. We hope that changes soon. Keep your fingers crossed for us and stay in touch! Any questions, email us at itsmylife@pbs.org and we will do our best to answer.

i found out today the orentation is the DAY before school starts and thats when we get our schedules and locker assignments.

bluestar58- I am starting high school too im so scared add me

I'll be starting my sophomore year in High school this upcoming school year (: I'm so glad I got through freshman year; it was soooo boring. I guess it's because I'm homeschooled and that's boring. I might go back to regular school at some point. Just here's a tips for High school: -Don't let the upperclassmen see that you're scared.- Dont' walk around the hallways like turtles; move it along!- pick electives you enjoy and that you'll be ok with doing for the next 4 years (make sure it will help you in your career too if you plan on going to college)-Clique Up!! Join an existing clique or make your own whatever you do just don be shy.-High school is a time to start all over. So if you were a strange kid in Elementary and Middle school, High school is the perfect time to re-invent yourself and start fresh. Hey, and if you mess that chance up you can always change in college too :)

HELLLP! Im starting high school in August and im scared! None of my friends arent going to the school im going to, and im scared i might do bad in my classes. And worst of all, this girl i cant stand is going to the same school with me!!! :'(

no, i am not! I am in grade 6 and i am in 6/7 split class so all the kids in my class get to go to the high school and they are told about everything in it. My BFF's are 7s so they tell me not to worry and they tell me that highschool is not a big deal so that is why i am not afraid of highschool!

I'm trying not to worry 2 much cuz my boyfrend is coming 2 da high skool.He sed he wud meet me @ the skool gates and help me thru da day.Hre r my tips: be urself, dont be coky, be nice, RELAX and try 2 enjoy the day

Aaah! As Moving Up Day is 2 weeks away I am getting scared about high school. -DCbound(I an not making a new account even though my trips over)

After this summer I will me in 2st grade!

High school is in August and I am really excited!!!

Lucky for me I'm only in 1st grade so I will have years to go to high school. Nobody make fun of me cause I don't want to be bullied. I can't wait till I'm old anof to go to high school I hope some of the kids in my 1st grade class are there. I have this friend named Bella and she is so sweet!

Yea, not really. I've heard a lot about it from my boyfriend. nothing to worry about, just peerpressure.

okay, speaking as a high school senior, here is what you need to know: 1) Have a close group of friends and you will be fine. 2) Don't be afraid to ask for help. Don't worry about looking dumb or clueless, everyone is dumb and clueless sometimes. Don't be prideful. 3) Sure the seniors might tease you a little but remember: they were freshmen once too and when you are the senior, you will do the same. 4) Don't be causing drama. No one likes people who cause drama. I'm putting this in capital letters because you need to get this in your head: REAL HIGH SCHOOL LIFE IS NOT LIKE DEGRASSI HIGH OR GLEE.

It depends on what school you go to I think.. The only school in my town is for all grades K-12.. So it's pretty easy going into high school.. It's not that big of a deal here lol.. I'm just finishing ninth lol XD

I was going to go to this great selective HS, (got a scholarship) it was the best one for miles. Then I moved. The HS I have to go to now is really bad, no one knows anything (seriously, I saw a teacher, in class, teaching 'high scoring' students their 10 times tables. I have to do a special program on the computer, all day. :(

Hi its me again lets c by now my courses r all set 4 next year and the parents have gone on 100 tours ok this is 1 concept of HS transition i dont get Y do the parents need tours they arent the 1s who have 2 navigate the crowded halls in 5 1/2 minutes we dont get a tour til August 30th and school starts on Sepetember 8th.Go figure! -DCbound (whose trip 2 DC is in 33 days and i am very exicted and nervous at the same time)

HSCutie97- thats not good 2 skip class nadia-:) dont b in a big rush disneyluvr- im on the same page as u crazniess huh

by then ile have a date

I'm about to go to middle school and i'm scared.Of course i'm scared of it.I think middle school will prepare me for it.

Im in highschool and its not as bad as i thought. In highschool you have more freedom. I love that because if i skip class the teacher doesnt care. They would say its your responsiblity to m,ake up the work. Now i go to school with a total of 2,000 people. Its a big school and on my first day i thought i was going to get lost. But i didnt. I was confident. So always be responsible and confident and you will have the best highschool experience ever.
