Oh boy! I'm not there yet but I feel your anxiety. The only thing I can say is be there to love her every day. For me, high school was painful, I hated it and I remember feeling the same way towards my mom. I don't like to admit it, but that is the truth.
I think about what I would do different for my own daughter and I would make sure she knows that her home is where she can softly land after a rough day at school. I would remind her that she is beautiful every day and that if her friends can't see that then they are not true friends.
High school years are delicate ones. Be open to listening and not judging.
I have a feeling both you and your daughter will do just fine
