Relax! You and your friends may not end up with the exact same schedule, but it's possible you may have one or two classes with them. Even if you don't, you can still hang out together at lunch. Also, consider joining a club. This way, you can keep the friends you had in middle school while also making new friends.
As for the classes, honestly, your main challenge will be organization. You need to keep track of all the different assignments, homework, projects, teacher quirks, etc. My best advice to you is to get a planner right away and USE IT! Many teachers write the day's activities on the board along with that night's homework. While he/she is taking roll, sit down and start copying it off the board.
You don't have to suck up to the teachers (they'll know!!!) but at least be genuinely civilized. Say "hi" when you come in and don't ask them the same question that someone just asked a minute ago.
Stock up on school supplies. You'll need a ton of college-ruled notebook paper, a bunch of pens, a stapler (those mini ones are kewl), and a three-ring binder with dividers. If you don't yet know how to type, LEARN (or pay someone to type), because high school teachers expect you to turn in typed reports.
Above all, just chill out about high school. It's a time-honored American tradition that millions of people have gone through and turned out okay. You will, too!

Originally Answered: Why. Ny queens public school high school admissoons, got good grades got into a undesirable high school?
85,000 got letters just in this round of school admissions. These schools each get thousands of kids applying to them. Just because you meet their minimum criteria is not an absolute in!
As to why you got into the school you did, YOU put it on your list. The bottom line is, DON'T put anything on your list unless you really want to go there!
My daughter only put 8 schools or programs within schools on her list (she actually had 7 schools, but applied to 2 different programs in one school.) There were not enough schools she really wanted to go to for us to fill all 12 slots. She is going to a school she really wants to go to next year.
Well, we live in different states but here and most places middle school will scare you and tell you that high school is so hard and blah blah blah. It is like a million times eaiser. You still see some of your freinds but there will be some people you have no classes with... and it will kinda suck but you can see them before or after school. I don't know about there but here high school offered a lot more help. As in, before and after school tutors if you need them that are free. (I think.. I never went to one but I am pretty sure there free because my friend went) and you teachers are always willing to help. Though, we need 25 credits//units to graduate so you might want to try really hard in your classes because if you fail its a wasted quarter/semester/year/class because you dont get the credit and thats what you are trying to do is credits to graduate. From what I hear all high schools say there is going to be a "freshmeat he!! week" Yes, freshmeat not freshmen. Which at our school was bull. Some stupid senior who thinks he is cool might try to do something but basically if you don't know someone just stay out there way. I never tried to pick fights or randomly gave a dirty look to someone i didn't know like a lot of the immature kids do. I promise though, you will make new friends. It is not as big and bad and scary as you think, so don't worry. Just go in prepared I mean bring papper and pencils and stuff and actually try in your classes shoot for A's and don't pick fights becuase its just immature. But my biggest adive... STAY OUT OF DRAMA! Drama will ruin your year... garenteed. =-]
So don't worry though. Just be yourself. Just like middle school... but bigger. With different classes and some extra people. hehe. =-]
Good Luck and God Bless!

I'm in no way associated with home schooling. However I can tell you not to be nervous.
Depending on what you've done in home school, high school is typically easier and a bore. Though it may turn out to be more difficult.
And although you may not be learning as much in your classes, high school is a fantastic experience that you will never forget. In high school, you'll be with more of your peers, learning more about socially acceptable ways to interact, talk about, etc. And let's face it: high school will quintessentially be your preparation for the college atmosphere.

High school for me was really easy. You still see your friends if they go to the same school as you, or you could still see them anyway and hang out with them even if they aren't at the same school as you.
The classes do get harder. But it's the same as going from 2nd grade to 3rd grade harder. Maybe the teachers are a little more strict.
Basically, you shouldn't be nervous at all. High school is really fun. And the upperclassmen shouldn't pick on you. They didn't pick on me and that was my worst fear.
