Although this unscientific survey and small group
of people cannot be considered statistically accurate, the responses were telling. These
teachers, administrators, parents and recent high school graduates each had different
stories to share, but it soon was evident that their answers fit into one of several
categories. Compiled into a “top 10” list, their answers provide a great starting place for
parents to have a conversation with their teens about making the most out of high school.
The list is not a parental lecture or college research; it represents the ideas of adults, who
when looking back, wish someone had shared these simple ideas.
This is NOT an Humble ISD article, but one I personally thought might be helpful. Read and take what you think might be helpful from it and ignore the rest!
