School Advice for Teens

Dear Dish-It,

I want to get promoted to the 7th grade so badly. I'm in 6th right now, but this stuff is not challenging enough because I love school - I like studying, researching, finding out new info - I just love it all. But I want more, since I could remember I've been getting As in grade cards and midterms but I want to move on. I think I could be able to handle it all. The only problem is that why would the school promote ME if there are loads of other students who are just as smart and get As? Do I need to work harder than I do? What can I do to get promoted?

Dear harizon55,

The best way to find out what you need to do to be promoted to the 7th grade is to talk to your teacher about it. Each school has different requirements for these things - maybe you'll need to complete some extra projects or take an aptitude test - but the sooner you talk to someone about it, the sooner you'll be able to get cracking on moving up in the academic world. Before you go stressing about starting the 7th grade early though, you should remember that you're still really young, and you shouldn't rush to grow up too fast. If your main concern is being bored at school, you could also just talk to your teach about hookin' ya up with some harder assignments. That way you could be challenging yourself, while still hanging with all your same pals. Good Luck!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
