The Ultimate High School Goals List

High school.

I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since I’ve officially graduated from mine.

I remember being scared about entering high school as I’ve seen a lot of teenage TV shows and movies that made high school seem more intimidating than it was, at least in my experience.

I don’t remember looking forward to any specific high school events or goals that I wanted to accomplish. I was most excited about “growing up” and experiencing new things with my closest friends.

I was never into any dances, parties, sports, or anything involving being a social butterfly – which was practically everything outside of the simple studying.

I had a pretty average high school life, and, at the time, I was completely content with that.

As I look back now, there is a part of me that wishes I was able to do more and create more memories during those four years. I allowed my fears, close-mindedness, and insecurities to hold me back from experiencing high school life to even half of its potential.

And by more, I don’t necessarily mean attending dances and parties. I would’ve loved to attend my senior prom, participate more during spirit weeks, and study harder.

High school comes once in a lifetime. Although it’s only four years, we enter as young teenagers, and we leave as young adults.

I didn’t make my four years count as much as I now would’ve liked to.

Make the most out of yours.

The goal list is intended to cover all four years of high school. Some can be aimed to achieve every semester or every school year. Some can be one-time goals or goals that are exciting and challenging to achieve multiple times. Of course, there are goals that are more intended for junior and senior years, such as attending prom.

The goals are also focused on student life and anything related to, well, school.

Lastly, you do not have to do everything on the list. The important thing is to accomplish as many as you feel comfortable taking on – whether they’re something challenging for you or something you’ve been wanting to do and can’t wait to cross out. Feel free to revise any of these as you wish as well. If you’re not into sports, instead of joining a sports team, you can enter any other club that your school offers as a substitute.

Making the Best of High School

There are times when I wish I could have done more throughout my high school years.

Times when I wish I didn’t give up too soon. Times when I wish I could relive these years and do things differently or with more enthusiasm and go above and beyond my instructors’ expectations.

10 years later and I’m still wondering how things would’ve played out if, instead, x, y, or z happened and if I would have simply taken more chances.

To the current and upcoming high school students, enjoy these four years.
