I have found that I learn as much from teaching as I do from being taught. Teaching a thing forces me to see it under a different light, to think it through as a set of individual sub-skills and bits of knowledge and experience I don't think about when I'm just doing the task.
I would say, as a student doing well enough to be respected by the other students, you need to find a balance between what you learn directly and what you can learn from sharing with and tutoring others.
I would also say, since other students gravitate toward you, you might try to take advantage of supervision/management classes. If you're a natural leader, now's the time to find out and expand on it. It will pay off handsomely later.
