Here's how you deal.

We've all moved schools a few times in our lives, yet the thought of it still remains incredibly nerve racking. The idea of leaving behind a familiar environment and entering a completely new one, along with new students, teachers and facilities, can be pretty unsettling to some.

Despite this, I've rounded up a few tips for anyone else going through the same experience:

  1. Don't be afraid to speak up!

Although it can be intimidating speaking to people whom you've never met or even seen before, if you're struggling to find a certain classroom or teacher—go ahead and ask someone. It'll benefit you in the long run, and who knows, you could make a friend by doing so.

  1. It'll take some time to adjust.

Unfortunately, adapting to an entirely new place or community takes quite a while. There will most likely be differences in schedules or classes, but don't let that stop you from enjoying your time there.

  1. Keep your game up.

If you're really not having the best time during your transition, remember that you can always call up or message friends from your previous school. With that being said, try and focus on academics, join clubs or extra curricular activities, and don’t stress about making friends. That'll come in time.

Are you switching schools soon? How are you coping with the move?
