Some high school students don’t want to study because they think of studying as reading a huge textbook and memorizing every letter of every word. Education has changed in a way that allows students to no longer use only textbooks to learn. These are seven websites that high school students, especially incoming freshmen, should know in order to pass their classes and conquer high school.

quizlet.com
Quizlet is one of the best websites for high school students because it offers numerous tools on the website that help students learn material. Quizlet allows students to study with flashcards, matching games, a “Learn” mode and practice tests to reassure their progress. Students can also create their own study sets and can sort them into folders and courses if they favor organization. Students have access to free expert solutions and verified online textbooks as well. Quizlet encourages students to study with streaks that keep track of how often a student studies and lets students earn achievements such as ‘Flashcard Whiz’ and ‘Test Acer.’

collegeboard.org
While this website isn’t the most exciting way to study, College Board provides videos and practices to learn more about certain units or skills for AP exams. Students can complete progress checks to practice and see what they should work on before their exams. College Board also allows you to send your AP scores to one college, university, or scholarship organization for free. College Board helps students prepare for the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT too, so you don’t have to take AP classes to use this website. Students planning on attending college could use College Board to plan for college, search for colleges, and find scholarships.

knowt.io
Knowt is not as well-known as the rest of these websites, but it’s a great tool. Knowt provides notes, study guides, flashcards, textbooks and video resources. For students taking AP classes, you can search your class name, and Knowt will sort the information by the units of that class. There’s a clock at the top of the website that lets you know how long you have until your AP exam. This factor of the website could be a pro or con depending on the person. Some students like the clock feature, but some students also stress about it, which is totally understandable since you’re kind of watching the time tick away. The website includes many subjects, so you could still find information for a class that isn’t an AP class, but realistically Knowt would probably be more useful to AP students.

gimkit.com
Although Gimkit is usually played with a code given to students by their teacher, the website could be used individually to study as well. If you create a free account and search for the subject you’re trying to study, you’ll be provided with study kits. The website is more vocabulary than anything, but that’s beneficial to the students who mostly struggle with vocabulary terms and definitions. Gimkit could be considered the most entertaining website on this list because you’re basically playing games. You can earn coins by getting questions correct and winning the games which increases the enjoyability of the website. The better you do on Gimkit, the more coins you earn, and the more you can buy. You could buy stickers and cosmetics to style your GIMS aka avatars. Gimkit is a fun way to help students prepare for their classes.

youtube.com
While a surprising amount of beneficial accounts and videos might be hard to access on a school device, there are a lot of accounts and videos that can be accessed that could help you study for any class. There are YouTubers who dedicate their accounts to helping students understand what they’re learning. Students who prefer watching videos to study rather than reading and playing games will gain the most from YouTube. I would recommend taking notes on the videos so it’s easier to stay engaged. As useful as it is, it is easy to get distracted on YouTube and begin watching videos that aren’t relevant to what you’re trying to study. If you’re easily distracted, I wouldn’t recommend using this website as a way of studying.

therideronline.com
Although The Rider Online isn’t necessarily a study tool, it is very informational and keeps students updated with what might be happening in their community. No, you can’t find answers to your Algebra homework on The Rider Online, but that doesn’t mean you won’t learn something. The Rider Online posts stories about classes, college, sports, and a “How to Adult” series to educate students. The stories on The Rider Online teach and entertain just like the rest of these websites.
