HELP - January 25th 2012, 12:54 AM

Ok I have a bit of a problem. I may get a chance to go to a brand new school that specializes in the arts. Now here lies my problem, I'm a tad reluctant to leave my friends but I'm always up to meeting new people. I'm staying in my same house but I'll be changing schools if I decide to go. My school already sucks. Teachers don't want to teach a bunch of ghetto kids but some of them are my friends. Don't know what to do please reply.

When nothing goes right go left

You have to do whats best FOR you. You cant always change your life to help others or to save friendships. If you really want to be at that school - and you think you can build friendships easily there, then go for it!

These friends may be your friends for awhile if you stay at the school, but chances are you will lose some of the friendships in the next couple of years anyway - so why pass up an opportunity like this?

Do whats best for you - and if you have the RIGHT kind of friends, they will understand. And remember, just because you change schools doesn't mean you lose those friendships - you can still hangout with them after school.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

As Chris said, you need to think about what's best for YOU. If your school already stinks and you're genuinely interested in this new school, then take the opportunity and run with it! Besides, if you're staying in your current house, you can still see your old friends outside of school, right? If this school for the arts is what you really want, then don't let anything else hold you back! Let us know what you decide.

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

At the end of the day, school is just school. You can still maintain your friendships with your old friends even though you're not going to be attending the same high school. As the others have said, you need to do what is best for you. Do you like the arts? Can you see a future in that field? If the answers to the above questions are yes, then this new school is something you should certainly consider.

Also, it's quite evident from your post which school you would like to attend. You did not speak highly of your current school but portrayed the new school in a good light. That, to me, is evident that deep down, you want to attend the new school - but are merely hesitant for one reason - your friends. With regards to this, again, know that they won't just stop being your friend because you move to a different school. You will have ample time to spend with them outside of school. You'll also have the opportunity to make new friends at the new school, which is always a good thing.
