High school can be a time of extreme ups and downs. Teenagers in year 7-12 are always looking for practical ways to handle demands of homework and study, friendships, teachers and academics and most importantly themselves and their own mindset as they face new experiences and a range of challenges along the way.

Parents want to see their teens thrive in high school, of course they do, yet they can feel frustrated and helpless watching their teens struggle because procrastination, overwhelm, stress and drama are getting in the way of their teen’s success. Hello High School and its companion Yearly Planner offer ready-to-use step by step strategies to help teens make the most of high school.
