Here are some points:
1. The amount of reading assigned will be greater. every teacher thinks their class is the onlu class you have.
2. Be prepared to research topics and write 5 or 10 page papers
3. More freedom to decide which courses you want to enroll in
4. There will be more students
5. Some high schools have a volunteerism requirements
6. High school sports is very competitive but games are always fun
7. Some schools require team projects
Hopefully these help.
Look out for sophomore, they think they are tough but realy the are just last years freshies that let a single year get to their head, by second semester the seniors will have fixed that. Juniors are not much of a problem IF you give them their space. Junior year is the hardest and most stressful and you don't want one to snap on you, you're will be a stress ball for the rest of the year. Now the seniors, you will soon know them well. Their job is to make or break the underclass mates. They have had 3 years of highschool hell and this is their last year, they WILL make the best of it at your expense. Nothing will stop that just remember you will be a senior soon (but don't let it get to your sophomore head or sophomore year will be freshmen year all over agian). Just hope the seniors take more notice of the other kids. Remember high school is a big lake with fish of all sizes. Know your size and your place and it will be just fine :)
Just kidding xD not really!! As a new senior I can tell you it is not that bad, you will have a lot of home work but junior year is the worst really :P and the seniors don't take much notice of the underclass men! It really is not that bad just don't go pick fights or start rumors that's the best advice I can give you! :)

Wow...you sound smart. I'm now a junior and to be honest with you Freshman year sucks...you have to start over and meet all new people. Don't worry though it gets ALOT better...once you find your group of friends high school will be fun! If your coming to school with people you already know...they will change and you may outgrow them so just be nice to everyone. One tip though...don't brag about how smart you are or show off...people really won't like that. Stay on track with school but freshman year is all about meeting people. Just stay organized and don't fall behind or turn in late work. Also be extra nice to your teachers and talk to them...they love that!
Don't be nervous..you'll be fine
Good luck! and best wishes!

Don't worry at all. High school really isn't that big of a deal. You'll be fine. :) I'm assuming you did well in middle school, because you placed into advanced classes, so it won't be much of a jump going to ninth grade. Literally, don't be nervous. And just take care of yourself, find a healthy balance of work, and hang around people that make you happy. Good luck, you're so close!

My biggest mistake as a freshman: Not doing homework. Dug myself into a hole and couldn't get myself out. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Got it? Good. Also enjoy the classes that have good teachers because chances are that you'll have bad ones and they can tend to ruin your year. As long as you do your work you'll be fine. And have fun. High school only happens once(technically), make the best out of it. It can be great if you make it great.

On the real, expect to get bullied. People are trying to make a good impression on the cool kids so they can secure a position in their friend circle for summer and for high school. It's a warzone. The main thing to remember is not to let anyone push you around and always be the first one to get physical so people learn not to walk all over you.
