How to succeed at Fenn


”Cross the bridge to success” 

~ John Sexsmith

Step 1: Give a damn. I see my classmates all the time leaving their work until the last minute to do or doing something that’s not academic during a study hall. Time management is hard to do when there is so many other things that you can do that isn’t academic. At Fenn, teachers want you to learn and do well in their classes, so if you try hard on all of your assignments and what to learn your teachers will guide you to success. 

Step 2: Ask for help. At my time at Fenn I have had the opportunity to ask meet with teachers outside of class. In 6th grade my advisor and math teacher was Mr. Sanborn. When I was having trouble in the class I would go in early and ask him about the homework or to review for the next test and he would happily give me help. This encouraged me to do it with my other classes and now in ninth grade I still do it. 

Step 3: have a good time. It is hard to do well and enjoy one thing if you hate it. You are surrounded my kind student and teachers at Fenn so enjoy it. When you like what you do you will put in more of an effort. For example if you like a certain sport you are going to have fun and want to get better, but if you not like the sport you aren’t going to keep on playing it. Make school fun by being involved in school life and you will have success.
