High School

Like Middle School, High School can be an exciting time as you look ahead and prepare for college or vocational work. However, it is not uncommon for students to feel overwhelmed by the increasing expectations and responsibilities at the high school level. 

 

As a High School student, your executive function (cognitive) skills are still developing and yet these cognitive function are put into high gear as you juggle multiple demands and shifting priorities.

 

You may be expected to manage any one or all of these tasks. But if you have ADHD or impaired executive functions, it may be more challenging.

  • ​manage schoolwork on a day to day basis, including completing and submitting assignments in on time

  • study for different exams and tests e.g. class quizzes and tests, SAT, ACT. AP's, 

  • explore and research colleges and careers

  • select and make decision around high school course selections

  • balance time commitment on various activities, sports, clubs and your job

  • juggle multiple projects and deadlines, and decide how to spend your time on each assignment

  • create and follow schedules for long term projects, and make adjustments 

  • establish and refine a long term goal and make plans for meeting that goal

If you are struggling to stay on top of your work and feeling frustrated, you may benefit from an academic coach who can guide your through establishing good study habits, learning and practicing test-taking strategies, using effective time management practices and navigating through planning and prioritizing your work load.
