School is too hard
November 25, 2014
My grades are bad and I'm trying to get them up but school is to hard for me
It is good that you want to get better grades. That is the first step in being successful.
Don't get discouraged about school being too hard. An important thing is to organize the way you study, so that you don't have to spend too much time on your homework. Try to avoid distractions when it is time to do your homework.
It is often good to take notes about the important things the teacher says. Often, they give hints about what will be on the tests.
Ask your teachers what you can do to get better grades in your classes. Plus, if a teacher knows you want to get good grades, the teacher will often help out.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes on getting top grades. I know that you can do it.

Part of your studying should be practicing taking tests. In this way, you will not get as nervous or forgetful during a test.
But also, you need to prepare well for a test.
See Be Good at Taking Tests, as well as other lessons on getting good grades.

How to perform well in class
aja - Gambia
Some methods to perform well in your classes is to try to sit toward the front, pay attention to what the teacher says, and take notes. The notes can be important things and even questions you would like answered.
Go through our lessons on Getting Good Grades to get more ideas.
Best wishes for success in school. I know you can do well.
How do we learn?
September 23, 2014
How we learn? I don't understand it.
Aliya - Ethiopia
There are many ways that you learn things. Often a parent, teacher or even friend will explain something that you can apply and remember. Doing what is taught is the best way to remember. But also, writing things down helps to remember and learn.
Sometimes, simply experimenting and trying something is a way to learn.
In school, it is good to listen to what the teacher says, as well as to watch. Taking notes helps your understanding.
I hope this helps your understanding.
Maintain good grades

how to maintain good grades
honey jell - Phillippines
If you have received good grades in previous classes, consider how you got those grades. Was it because you were more interested in the class or perhaps more skilled? Did you have a teacher you liked? These are various factors.
Each class is different, so you have to make an effort to relate with your teacher and set a good schedule for doing your homework.
If you got good grades before, you can get good grades again. You can even get better grades with some good strategy and effort.
Best wishes on getting good grades. I know you can do it.
What does course teach me?
August 20, 2014
what exactly will this course be teaching me because i don`t want to give anyone my email address and not be taking a course?
serena - USA
You do not have to give your email address to use the Getting Good Grades lessons. It is not a course. Instead put subjects of interest that will help you succeed in school.
Best wishes on good grades.
Writing article on bullying
Topic: Being Bullied in School
July 19, 2014
Hello, I am Claudia Bowman a year 13 student at Tauhara College in Taupo, New Zealand. I am very passionate about standing up for those who get bullied and have seen the damage it has done to many people over the years. I have read through your webpage 'School for Champions' it has all caught my attention. I am doing a feature article for Media Studies on bullying and the huge effects it has on people especially students at school (Mainly High Schools). I was wondering if I could interview you via email, phone or Skype as i have a few questions that Id like to ask and add to my article I am writing. I am looking forward to receiving your reply.
Claudia - New Zealand
It is great that you are writing an article on the effects of bullying. I'd be glad to answer your questions. The best way probably would be via email.
Wants to get all A's in core subjects

How to get all A's in my core subjects
LESHANA - Malaysia
It is good that you want to get all A's in your core subjects. To make that goal more real, make a list of the subjects and state the grade that you want to get in them. It does list handy so that you can see it as a reminder.
Not only must you be able to understand the subject matter, but you also need to be good in taking tests. Give yourself practice tests and the various subjects.
If you find your grades slipping in a subject, ask your teacher what you could do to improve your grade. Often, they will give useful hints or tips.
You know that you have the potential for excellence. Best wishes and getting top grades.
Student kicked out of school for cheating
June 11, 2014
if someone cheated homework or test and kicked out the program high school?
and want to finish high school any other school
fa - Canada
If a student was attending a special program high school, was caught stealing, and then was kicked out or expelled from the school, there still are options available.
First of all, the student could try to be readmitted into the program high school. Sometimes an apology will be enough to be readmitted. If that does not work, then the student should seek admission to some other high school. They cannot prevent a student from getting his or her education because of a mistake in judgment.
Hopefully, this reader feedback has helped provide information about issues on Getting Good Grades.
