Organizing for School

Written by Lee Wyatt (last updated September 29, 2022)

If you are tying to start organizing for school, then never fear. It's not that difficult of a task. All you really need to do is use a little imagination, some persistence, and follow a few simple guidelines. While these guidelines are largely based off of common sense, with some imagination you can easily begin organizing for school. Best of all, you will find that these guidelines will work equally well for grade school, high school, college, or even university.

  • Color code your classes. Begin organizing for school by color coding all of your classes. This means that you obtain some different colored notebooks and folders. Assign each of the classes that you have a different color notebook and folder, and only use them for those particular classes. For example, you can assign a red notebook and folder for use in Social Studies, and green notebooks and folders for a class like Philosophy (depending on your education level).
  • Create a study zone. Everyone that is in school needs to have a "study zone." The study zone is an area that you can dedicate for you to use to work on your school work. This area should be one that is designed to promote your ability to work on academic projects, and free of any possible distractions. This will usually be something that is different from person to person, so work out what will be best for you.
  • Get properly supplied. One of the things that you will need to do in order to begin organizing for school, you will need to be properly supplied. This means that you need to make sure that you have all the paper, folders, report covers, computers, printers, programs, flash drives, or other materials that you may need throughout the school year. When you get these items, make sure that you have them properly organized, and stored in your study zone so that you can have easy access to them when they are needed.
  • Learn to prioritize. Part of being organized for school is learning to prioritize. As you receive your assignments, you need to stop and think about which are the important ones, and which are not. Usually this will be made up of what subjects are most important to you, and which ones you wish to get the highest marks on. Another method that you can use is to prioritize according to when each assignment is due.
