I know that I should not stress about this that much but all I have are my high school freshmen year grades they weren't that great, but I want some addivice on what I should do to get into a good collage.
I want to apply to NYU
Columbia university (long shot)

Here's my situation I attend a small privet high school in california, it's not the greates school ever but it's something. The most A.P classes you can take soph year are none, jr year 2 or 3,and senior 4 or 3.

Last year I got a 3.7
I took Algebra II (H) which is a big thing in my school.
English I (H)
and other classes.
This year I'm taking
English II (H).
and other classes that you need to grad from h.S.
varsity track
varsity soccer
Ecology club
G.A.A (sports)
honor roll
award for writting an essay
certificates for S.S, Religion and English.
50 hrs of community service

student government (publicity)
eology club
amnesty international
international club
math center
(these are all the clubs we have at our school)
varsity xcountry and hopefully v track v soccer
and hopefully more

SO what should I do differently????????

I'm also 1st generation, my parents are immagrants and only reached the 6th grade, I also am a teachers aid at an elem shool, I went to skid-row, and did locks of love twice!
