My position going into college as a magnet student
As a magnet 9th grader, that has come from a non-magnet middle school, I am often overwhelmed with tests and such that I am still learning to manage. Due to my knowledge that colleges like to see leadership in extracurricular, I have tried to gain influence in my local Robotics club and have tried to involve myself in any way I could. Looking at my classes and my grades, I have found that it varies from between 3.5-4.0 every quarter. Due to me being in the Magnet, I have no AP classes at least in my Freshman year and I am worried if I am falling behind. I would also like to know the best pre-college programs that are available so that I will be able to build my resume and any other ways that I could build my resume for college. Lastly, I have been struggling with studying and such and I would also like to know how everybody here is able to study for AP tests, class finals, SATs etc.

I'm also a magnet student, I'm in the 11th grade. I also did not take any AP classes in 9th grade. I believe over the years that you are in high school, AP classes will start coming as it did for me. I don't suggest doing pre-college programs during the school year, do it during the summer. For the studying part, I believe you should do practice problems and worksheets, that will help you comprehend what you are learning and before you know it, you'll be teaching the whole class. As for the SAT/ACT, the math and english classes you take in 9th and 10th grade will help you because the things you're learning in that class will help you. Also, use Khan Academy for studying the SAT and watch youtube videos and then find practice problems to help you.
