Qualities highly-effective teens possess...

Motivation, willingness to learn from mistakes, resilience through failure, intelligence, humor, a sense of self (but not too much), and the list could go on.

Keeping in mind many successful students come from healthy, involved families, I would add parental involvement and solid family bonding to the mix.

highly effective teens or people in general should have balance. as in, not centering entire life around bf, school, or whatever.

An important one I think is non-conformity. Teens are often highly suseptible to peer pressure, and I would think a truly "effective" (whatever that means) teen would be able to think for him/herself and not be afraid of not fitting in with the crowd.
