I use lockers at work now and when I was still in school. The best advice I can give to survive a school year is to be organized, that way you can always be better prepared for class. You can use a calendar to list the important events and dates. It is important not to share your lock number to anyone so you can be assured that your belongings are safe. You can also try to fix your things where you can easily grab the books or items that you need most.
