I'm going into 9th grade and was wondering if anyone had any advice for someone going into high school. I'm a slightly above-average student with poor study habits and a social life that can only be described as "lacking", but I still want to do well. I'm not looking for anything in specific, just all round advice or peoples perspectives based off of their own past experiences.

Go to the head teacher at the school and beat them up. Earn your place as the head teacher.

Have fun, don't take the classes too seriously (unless you want to no life high school and have a plan to go to a top tier ivy league university to study something that will get you a lucrative job), find out what you enjoy and what you would like to do after high school, enjoy your ability to make friends/romantic interests with little to no effort, join a sport if your into that, look for a part time job when your old enough (you will be very popular/have a lot MORE freedom than 90% of your classmates if you do) [except you will have less time].

There is nothing hard about high school it's essentially a really big daycare for "big kids". Enjoy your time my friend, sometimes I wish I could go back and do it all over again. Not to change anything but to enjoy all the times I had with my friends.

Friends are hard to come by after college, especially when all of them went their separate ways.

Find something to do extra curricular (Arts/Music, my sister did CAP [civil air patrol]); a second language wouldn't be a bad idea either (they are much harder to learn as you get older).

Make sure you have a way of organising your time. Doesn't have to be anything fancy- it could be a phone app, notebook, or planner- but having a way of writing things down is a lot more pleasant than just trying to remember it all. And a lot less prone to error.
