Need advice-feel zoned out all the time and worried about failing

How do you focus better in school with your mind racing?

I usually test well, but I often times can't concentrate, and I don't want that to hurt me when I start college. It's not always things around me, but just my thoughts distracting me. If I'm feeling really inspired it can help me work faster. But I'm not quite sure what to do in the heat of...
