New Kid In School: The Best Movie Newbies (VIDEO)

Aug 12, 2013 | Updated Aug 12, 2013

Your hand shakes as you throw your unopened copy of "Moby Dick" into your book bag. It's the first day of school. You're new, and you're terrified. You have no idea how things will shake out.

Luckily, there's no reason to speculate. If 50 years of high school movies are are any indication, you have nothing to worry about. The video (above) can serve as the roadmap to your high school future.

Sure, you'll be ostracized at first. Your peers will assume you're a worthless person and glare at you when you shuffle through the hallway for the first time. They'll definitely laugh at you when you trip or drop your lunch tray, and hell, they might even punch you in the face. But when life keeps telling you, "There's something on your shirt," try to keep your chin up: by the end of the year, you'll meet the friends of a lifetime, make out HARD with that hot dude from your math class, and probably perform a choreographed dance with the same classmates who judged you harshly earlier in the year. Buck up, new kid, it's your time to (be scorned and excluded but then) shine.

Featured Movies: "Napoleon Dynamite," "Mean Girls," "Back to the Future," "The Karate Kid," "The New Guy," "Not Another Teen Movie," "Sixteen Candles," "Never Been Kissed," "Clueless," "10 Things I Hate About You," "Grease," "17 Again," "Bring It On," "Dazed and Confused," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Rushmore," "Charlie Bartlett," "Footloose (1984)," "Footloose (2011)."
