    Im graduating this year. I used to be super, super excited, especially during my sophmore year. But during my junior year and right now during my senior year - i dont want to walk the stage or go to the after grad at all. I hate the idea of having to try on dresses and to buy a dress (my school doesnt do cap and gown). I hate the idea of sitting down for hours just listening to names and awards (not that people shouldnt be acknowledged, just that i dont really feel the need for ME to acknowledge it.) I just think i could have family around me. Go out for supper. Somewhere where i ll know my grandparents will enjoy (they are very traditionally chinese and tend to only like chinese food). And maybe after, go to the "afterparty" with friends at someones house or go bowling with them. Just wanted to know other people s experiences. Did you guys enjoy it? Regret going? Regret not going?

    So, all my life I also hated high school, doing lessons, and attending high school everyday. I graduate a semester early but I feel really upset and disappointed everytime I have to go. I go back to school on Monday and I'm a bit disappointed and I'm trying to find a way to expand my break. A week isn't long enough. I need a few more months lol But even though I hated high school, would prefer having my own place and don't really enjoy high school I think I'm going to miss it, and I'll one day look back on my high school days and wish they were back. Even though right now I wish I had a two week break instead of one. ( I'm a senior in high school)

    I am in 11th grade and school makes me so unhappy. I cry almost every morning before school and almost everyday in the bathroom. I have great friends and everything but I can t succeed there. I try so hard to do all my work and make sure it s done with pride but I still don t do well on the assignments. I hate not being able to do anything that I want to do and instead do what a teacher is telling me to do. I need advice on whether or not dropping out is a possibility.

    I personally think school is a waste of time and I am a student saying this. Seriously, What kind of education am I even receiving? The education at school is a joke, You really don't learn anything it's just memorization. Right now I'm at school typing this, And I'm wasting my time right now, Right now I could be sleeping, cooking, working out or just working but instead I'm right here at school doing absolutely nothing but wasting my time. And I can't believe how some people actually believe that school is good for you and not a waste of time. Hopefully those people wake up and realize that they have been lied or they have been brainwashed.

  • Is school useless?

    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed.

    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed.

    First, reduce the hours children have to spend at school. 6-7 hours is a long time to be focused on topics that aren't even helpful with paying bills or looking after elderly relatives - let alone, focusing on topics one may not be interested in or good at.

    So to answer your question - no, school is not useless. But it should be made flexible. Kids are people too - no one likes to be patronised at any age.

  • Should I send my kid to private school so he does not have to be around a bunch of blacks and Mexicans like I did?

    Best answer: When I was young, we moved from an area with a higher than average minority population to a similar income level area that was practically all white, the schools were much better.

  • Why don't I get any review sheets for tests? Why am I expected to study on my own, without any review sheet?

    Literally none of my classes give review sheets. Is it because they're all honors courses? They all just expect us to look through our notes, study on our own. Is it the school or because they're honors courses? Are they not allowed to give us review sheets? In many of my friend's schools, they get full... show more
    Literally none of my classes give review sheets. Is it because they're all honors courses? They all just expect us to look through our notes, study on our own. Is it the school or because they're honors courses? Are they not allowed to give us review sheets? In many of my friend's schools, they get full length review sheets covering EVERY single topic. I find it hard to believe that my high school is one of the "top" if it can't even give proper review sheets.

    I used to get good grades in school, but once I hit high school, things started to go downhill. Especially last year and it keeps getting worse.

    I used to get good grades in school, but once I hit high school, things started to go downhill. Especially last year and it keeps getting worse. I can never concentrate in class, even when I try really hard to. I take really long to think. I can never do my homework, I just don't have enough motivation and I can't concentrate. I haven't paid attention in math class this entire year and I'm usually really good at math. The teacher never checks our homework, so I really don't do it. I usually say I will, but then push it back and never do it. Yesterday in class we had a test and I did one problem out of thirty and the rest of the class for an hour and a half I sat and drew a turkey on my paper, because I didn't feel like doing it. I can't read books at all and I can't even watch a movie or my favorite tv show all the way through anymore. I don't finish anything I start. I'm just really struggling and I don't know what is wrong with me.

  • Seriously why does school exist?? How could anyone believe that school is good for you?? What can l do?

    School is not about learning, School is about memorization and wasting time. Like right now, I’m wasting my time at school when I could be cooking, exercising or sleeping. Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning????... show more
    School is not about learning, School is about memorization and wasting time. Like right now, I’m wasting my time at school when I could be cooking, exercising or sleeping. Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning???? Seriously I learn more outside of school. And you know what’s the worst part? My parents made me stay after school for drivers ed which even wastes my time even more, Seriously it’s a bullshit class!! I ain’t learning ****, Seriously every thing is bullshit after school!! And I keep telling my parents how school really is and they just laughed at me. They said how grateful I should be that I’m in school. They say how school is the only place where you get your education, how school is so important. Seriously they have been brainwashed, Education is important not school unless the school is a good one. So what can I do?? I am crying as I am typing this at school, I just wished people can understand that not all schools are good, they are just abusing kids.

  • Questions about high school and grades?

    I had a rough freshman and sophomore year grade wise because of a lack of motivation (ended sophomore year within the 2.0-2.5 overall gpa range).

    I had a rough freshman and sophomore year grade wise because of a lack of motivation (ended sophomore year within the 2.0-2.5 overall gpa range). For junior year, I am challenging myself by taking AICE and honors courses. I should be getting three As, three Bs, and one C for this first semester (does that look bad to admission boards?). I am determined and expect myself to make straight As throughout the rest of high school starting second semester of this school year. Next school year will include more AICE courses but also about 2 or 3 AP courses. I am working on redoing any classes for grade forgiveness from my first two years of high school. I have been putting significant effort into my schoolwork lately. So basically, my questions are: 1. Will my overall GPA and ACT/SAT test scores matter more to universities such as FSU and UF rather than what letter grades I had on my high school transcript? 2. Would I get rejected because of my freshman and sophomore year grades/GPA regardless of how I did junior and senior year? 3. Are the courses that I’ve listed rigorous enough to get myself admitted into a state university if I were to make mostly As (or a few Bs) in them?
