I thought this was a good article/slideshow on the Top 10 skills for high school students:

Thoughts, any they left out, or some you don't think are as important?

I think it's a great list and agree that time management and study skills really are at the top. Dd22 struggles with both and so had a harder time in school, while dd19 excels at both, and thus had an easy time. They both are smart, and both ended up with over a 4.0 in HS, but older dd had a lot of last-minute catches, a lot of almost-disasters, a lot of forgotten stuff...  The stress level was always much higher. I also think that older dd struggled more in college because she didn't have those strong skills and there was more to juggle in college. In the end, she was fine, but working on those skills early is important.
