Two Parts:Developing yourselfInteracting with others

Being the most popular kid in class can be easier than you think. If you want to do just that, all you have to do is follow these simple steps and you'll already be on your way to popularity!

Part 1
Developing yourself

  1. 1
    Observe what the other popular kids wear, such as the newest trends. Keep up with them. People judge a lot on appearance. Dress appropriately for your age. For example, if you're 13, you probably shouldn't be wearing bunny tops and old leggings, but instead going for cool stuff that looks trendy and suits you! Be careful not to dress older than your age and show skin, as you will be judged.
    • To be popular you don't need to have expensive clothes. Instead, use the clothes you already have and express yourself with your own flair and style.

    Focus on achieving school goals through effort. People trust you when you're smart and hardworking. Work extra hard in class and do some studying in your spare time.
    • Do well with your academics, and try your best on everything. If people view you as smart, you have a better chance on scoring study-sessions with the popular kids. They will also want smarter people in their groups, so it will be easier for them.

Part 2
Interacting with others

    Be polite to everyone, and never do anything that you believe anyone will be offended towards. Name-calling, jokes about religion, weight, or other touchy subjects, and bullying is a big no-no. Contrary to what television shows tell us, being rude won't make you idolized. You will only be seen as a mean person.

  5. 5
    Be a force for positive. Always share really great news, and be a busy person at school.


  • If you want to be popular within the whole school, don't be shy.
  • Don't just throw yourself in, make your way in, ask the popular girl or boy if you could hang out with them. Let's say they were playing freeze tag, ask if you can play, like every other game. If the say yes, volunteer to be it, and don't be the one who is never putting the effort. Sit by the person at lunch so they can get to know you better, and make friends with you! If you become friends with them, you will likely be in their group.
  • Don't be afraid to talk to the popular kids. Ask if you can sit with them and crack a few jokes to make them laugh!
  • Wear a little bit of make-up every day. It is sad, but the popular crowd tend to hang out with the more beautiful people, as they want a good reputation with members of the opposite sex. Also, keep a daily hygiene routine, meaning brush your hair and teeth and take good care of yourself!
  • Always have some sort of unique attribute to yourself, don't just blend in.


  • Don't abandon the friends who were with you before. You will seem mean and selfish. Try to bring them into the popular crowd with you, or if not, make sure you distribute your time between all of your groups of friends easily.
  • Don't get too vain about yourself, or you won't have any friends. You'll still be popular, but you won't be popular in a good way.
