Some tips for future HTA students would be always try to do your school work early (if possible), manage your time wisely, don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice, and never stand in the hallways in between classes.
A good source that helped me survive high school.
When I first started 8th grade at HTA, I was a complete mess. Transferring from a traditional public school to a school like HTA can be difficult for any student. In order to strive at HTA, you are need to have a great deal of independence and responsibility. Otherwise, you will get lost in an overflowing surplus of assignments and past due work. This is what happened to me my first year.
However, after getting some help from my teachers and peers, I learned to manage my time better and not procrastinate on my assignments, thus, providing less stress upon myself. Now, as a senior in high school, I can look back at all the progress I have made at this school. As a person, I have gained a wide sense of knowledge and confidence from HTA that I am eternally grateful for. I recommend anyone who is looking for something new to try HTA. Even if it’s only for a short period of time, the experience is incredible for students of any age. Overall, I am pleased to have been a part of this school.
