How to make friends at new school?

This year I am starting 7th grade at a new school where I know no one and I am nervous. I don't think I have trouble making friends this year at church camp I made lots of friends but I can be kinda shy at first with people. (I am a girl)

I was new last year in seventh grade, too! One thing that helps is to stand out. Be yourself, because a lot of new people don't know what to expect so they don't express themselves a much. If you stand out, you'll catch people's attention and you won't just be another new kid. Just don't be afraid to be yourself, even if you aren't really like anybody else there. spend some time with your clothes, for example, and dress like YOU, not like the newest trends or most popular styles. Don't be afraid to open up right away to people. Keep an open mind when it comes to friendship, and remember that your closest friends at your new school don't have to be just like your friends at your old school.

Say hi and be nice to Everyone You See. Start conversations, do you want to be known as the shy person or the bold person. In my opinion, its annoying when new kids are shy and awkward. Most people just give up on them.

Be outgoing and friendly. Ask questions and then strike up a conversation. Join clubs or organizations. Go to mixers and sporting events. And most important....be yourself.

Talk! Ask as much questions as possible don't be shy because you wanna be in the knowing. Smile and start a conversation with someone. Go in with a good attitude cuz if you think I am not gonna have any friends and no one is gonna like me you're gonna bum yourself out! Have confidence, Join a sport and clubs or whatever! Stay active and just be friendly towards others.

Well when the teacher says to pick your seat go sit by someone who seems nice, even if you havent talked to them. dont exclude yourself, be bold, but not annoying. Start a conversation to whoever you are sitting by and Bada Bing! Best of Luck

Just be yourself! A lot of people want to hah out and become friends with the new kid anyways. If you become friends with one person you can meet and become friends with some of their friends! You can also try to figure out who the other new kids are so that you won't feel like the only one!
