Ten Worst Things About High School

Ten things you hate the most about high school in general.

The Top TenXW


try this I missed 3 months of school and I was going to fail my grade so my teacher said finish all your homework and you'll pass you grade and she gave me 211 pages

I would have a perfect grade point average if I never had any homework. I have also noticed an interesting trend: I invariably have A's in classes with little or no homework, while those that give homework daily have much lower grades. - Randomwaffle23

I am so happy my dad's against homework so I won't get in trouble if I don't do it - famguyfangirl

A waste of my time. - Therandom

2Bitchy Popular Girls

one day I'm going to "accidentally" spill water on them and watch the 10 pounds of makeup slide off!

I admit that I hate homework, but it's important. You do learn things from it, and it destroys your grade if you don't do it, and it actually is an important responsibility.

Bitchy popular girls, on the other hand, bring my piss to a boil. Technically, I don't get why they are so popular... because everyone seems to hate them.

Thank God I just finished High School... To choose "the worst thing about High School" wasn't really easy. I just hate it! Everything about it. But apparently "Bitchy Popular Girls"is the worst!

Rich popular girls who flirt obnoxiously with other boys and pretend they know everyone in the entire school drive me nuts!

3Waking Up Monday Mornings

Entering the shower with the knowledge that you will soon be subjected with 6 1/2 hours of boredom is like entering the 7th circle of hell. #2 getting dumped. - fireinside96

The first thing that comes to my mind when the
alarm goes off on Monday mornings is "this is like
hell, I just wish I were dead" - MegaToolica

ME:awesome weekend, the schools, uh oh I don't want to go into detail. - Masterofcheeseing

Monday's suck, you wake up early brush your teeth and wish your parents have never made you. Well, that's what I do. I step into school and say I hate everything because school is a negative environment.

The worst is when the teacher calls the names up to the front to recieve the exams, and you can't breathe and your heart is beating because you know you failed it...

Yup, when I get my test back, I pass out. - SuperBacca

It makes me panic that when I get started in a test or quiz I just forget everything I studied.

What about final exams?

5Bad Teachers

There are plenty of these at my school. They either have completely boring and unoriginal lessons, disrespect students as if they have no rights, or both.

The worst teachers are the ones that just tell you what to do and not how to do it. My whole maths class is confused because of our teacher. Then she turns around and gives us piles of homework.

My teacher is pretty much the same. It makes me really sad because it's the only class I'm having a hard time with.

I once had a teacher who just talked and talked about stuff that had no relevence to the subject she was teaching. Then it was the end of the lesson and we all failed our grades.

There are these narrow-minded teachers that give low grades! - velitelcabal

Even though you worked your butt off, but no, the annoying popular girl gets an A+, even though she did nothing at all. - RiverClanRocks

I'm not kidding, there are two special needs kids at my school that since they know they have special needs, can get away with anything. The two of them are twins as well so they could beat down another kid and take their money and other valuables and then fall to the ground screaming bloody murder, and the kid they bullied gets suspended. They have actually spit, kicked, punched, etc. Other kids and no one does jack. I have a disorders called Tourette's syndrome and OCD, but I would never bully another kid.

The next group of people I have to deal with is the populars. They act like they are kings and queens before the Magna Carta was signed, doing whatever they want when want. There's even this one popular kid at my school who is such a jerk to unpopular kids especially when they are considered different, but when a popular girl is around, he sugar coats it so he can "get some". What's sad is kids like me are put under the "unpopular category because either, were intelligent, ...more

This has made several amazing people in my life so depressed they've considered suicide. I don't see the purpose of hurting people especially when self-esteem is such a fragile thing already. It takes a lot to make me hate something but making the stupid decision to bully earns you a right on that list. For those going through this remember people care about you. Even if it's just the quiet girl who sits next to you in class, someone would miss you immensely if you weren't there any more. So, from a loved ones perspective, suicide is NEVER the answer, and it can get better. Stay happy inter-webers : )

awwww, jeezz, I'm going to be going threw this problem now... ahh great, high school bullies now, like I'm in grade 8, and next year I'll be in high school,, now the high school bullies? , c'mon gimme a break, lolz... well if I pull off suicide next year... I'm srry, LMAO jkk jk jk... damn it, high school bullies... let's see what happens, lol - SmoothCriminal

You're lucky. In England, we have secondary school instead of the separate middle and high school. if you find a bunch of bullies in year 7 ( equivalent to 6th grade), you are stuck with them till year 11 (equivalent to 10th grade)! At least you can change high school easily but for me it will be very hard (p. S my school sucks).

I never have any problems with "bullies", because I'm not afraid to stand up to them. - Therandom

8Annoying Classmates

Worst with bitchy girls. Those bitchy girls team up with annoying classmates to make fun of poor students. I wanna fight these annoying creatures and give justice to those who are abused by these annoying bullies - ronluna

Die, people. When I was in school, I was getting fed up with some of my classmates. I always think about talking behind their backs so I can enjoy school more. I had fun in the 1st semester, but everything changed when the new semester began. I wasn't picked to answer questions very often, thanks to a nerd who's the female equivalent of Gary Oak. Like she thinks she's better than me. I know more than her anyway, like lemons have more sugar than strawberries, but citric acid makes them taste sour instead. And she says to me everyday:"Smell ya later! ". Plus she gets more liked than me. My mom told me it was because she doesn't want me to be successful. She was right, and I beat her in a spelling bee. Heh heh heh, take that, BITCH.

I am fed up with annoying classmates. I am fed up with them because those morons got my class in trouble several times. Some are stupid, some are annoying, and some, you want to show them in their underwear. My classmates in English were just stupid. I wanted donuts, but these dunces ruined this opportunity. I also have to live with stupid people in reading class, as they either made me sit at a different table, annoy me, or make me rage quit. Idiots also make me lose in P.E. activities. I also hated this motherfer who is more lucky than me. She thinks she is better than me, but she is not.

No lies there's 2 kids in my class who are complete smart arses and they say they wanna fight but if you say yeah they'll just run off like a chicken

9Teachers, principals, and other school authorities tell students to respect them but they are very abusive

they tell students to behave, keep quiet, but they are busy talking and shouting with each other regarding how to abuse a student. regarding the haircut, they are very strict too but when the security guards is bald and no balds allowed in the school, they should change it - ronluna

That is screwed up. Lucky for me, my school isn't like that and what you said reminds me of a video I saw on You Tube. A 9 year old had a friend with cancer, so she shaved her head to show support. Unfortunately, this got her suspended and I was all like "what? " If I was at that school and had no hair for any reason whatsoever, I would be pissed off if I got suspended for it because that would ruin my record of never getting suspended. - Murvine_Taylor

I remember back when the principal assigned seats in the cafeteria and would punish us for using our Constitutional right of protests and petition.

When my teacher tells my class to be quiet, she SCREAMS. and she tells us that we're being rude when were eavesdropping on her conversations but she eavesdrops on ours. and what I hear them saying about us behind their backs is VERY rude. I really want to print this comment section and shove it in my teachers smug face. Ugh.

I remember being mocked by a teacher in front of the entire class, and he received no consequences for his actions even after my mother complained to the school about it!

10Too much responsibility and pressure to do well when all you want to do is have fun

It's true... your college career depends on those 4 years. If my higher education was based upon my performance in middle school... I'd be at freggin' M. I. T. lol - suthrnbell0105

You can only be a teenager once, highschool may enrich the experience of being a teen by surrounding you with friends and peers M. But there is an IMMENSE deal of social, academic, and in some cases sexual pressure. When all you want to do is stay home and watch T.V. your forced to go out and feel tons of pressure. When you just want to go to school and talk to other kids the whole "social ladder" stabs you in the back and dictates who you should and talk to. When you just want to go to a school dance without being pressured by the grinding "tradition" you realize unless you want to be shunned and labeled as uncool you can't say no! And when you just want to hang out with your squad you realize you are failing a class and need to study because you just bombed a quiz. GET THE POINT? HIGHSCHOOL IS TOO HIGH PRESSURE! In middle school you feel social stress, in college you feel academic, in highschool you are presented with both! Like seriously? It shouldn't be like this. Highschool ruins ...more

I seriously feel like passing out when I see my grades, because I feel like I will become a homeless person. Why does college look at how much homework I did in 4 years of high school can't they look at test scores and how many extracurriculars I'm taking or something else. Why aren't 14-17 year olds' allowed to enjoy themselves a little free time instead of studying and finishing homework all night.

This is so true. Video games for the win.

The Contenders


They spread a rumor that I was gay, almost ruined my life till I screamed out in class to a guy "F*** you bitc* step up! " and know people hate me because they think that my EX didn't cheat on me when I found out she made out with another guy and their telling my new girlfriend I'm just using her... Yup life sucks... :'(

Kids commit suicide over drama. Its pretty sad it's kind of like bullying.

I thought I could trust one of my friends with a secret. Next thing I know, half the class is loudly asking me to ask a girl out, when said girl is sitting 3 feet away from me. Needless to say, she said no.

Feeling ignored hurts so bad! It's that painful!

13Being A Virgin

everybody's bitchy in this matter. hey, I'm still a virgin! and what's the matter with that? and in the future we will be get laid like aman28 said - ronluna

what makes it worse is the people who lie about getting some because that makes you feel like your the only one not getting laid - aman28

What's wrong with not getting some?!? I don't wanna get someone pregnant! I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE A DAD! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Being a Virgin till you're 25 is better than being a mom or dad at 15 - SirSkeletorThe3rd

People treat you like a gimmick, like you're a different species. No, I won't tell you how I can do that to myself or how I can disappoint my family like that. Because people who say that need to go away and re-evaluate their own lives.

Also, telling me I need jesus in my life isn't going to change my lesbianism, just saying.

15"Shoe Game"
16Abusive Security Guards
17Religious Extremists

This girl at my school was trying to force a student to believe in God... In case you have not noticed, America has the freedom of religion. Due to that, I do not care if you worship a potato chip, just do not try to change someone just because they do not believe in the same things as you do. - LostDream258

Yes yes they will pick on you of your not there religion I am an atheists deal with it

Well, I'm a Catholic Christian, but I will deal with it. :) I totally respect your religion. - Murvine_Taylor

I'm an atheist... My school is full of Christians who scream at you to apologize if you say "I swear."

Some people called my friend who doesn't believe in religion a satanist, they started to bully her. I make fun of religious extremist. Even Christian extremists (I'm a Christian). I make fun of members of ISIS too - SirSkeletorThe3rd

18All the Credits You Are Required to Have

English shouldn't be required at all because all the English you learn after Middle school is literature and I don't need literature for science and math. Grammar, the useful part of English, is done after 8th.

Physical education is a requited course at my school. WHY?!?

In out school you have to have like 5.5 credits each year, or else you won't graduate or be able to play sports...like WHY


Oh. God. I hate cliques SO BAD!

So here's how they are divided at my school...

The Jock Guys: All of the guys who are athletic. That's literally the only a way a guy can become popular. By their athletic abilities. All of the girls (both popular and unpopular, with the exception of me and a few others) like them. It's insane. Most of them are mean, and it's EXTREMELY rare to find a NICE popular guy.

The Jock Girls: The girls who are athletic. They don't exactly care about looks as much as some of the popular girls do, but some of them do. They usually are found talking to the popular guys and the other popular girls. If an unpopular girl is actually ATHLETIC, (like me), they will get criticized just because they aren't popular. They won't even be considered athletic, even when they actually are.

The Girly Girls
All they care about is their hair, their clothes, their nails, their purses, and boys. Literally. That's IT. I am actually a tomboy here, so ...more - Minecraftcrazy530

For me I can't talk to one of the 'other guys' WITHOUT being accused of liking them... - RaineSage

I was friends with a girl since Pre-K. We were such good friends. We would always talk to each other and sit next to each other at lunch. She would always laugh at my jokes and I'd laugh at hers. Then, in 3rd grade, two new kids came: a boy and a girl. Their names started with an A and a B. My friend's name started with a C. In 4th grade, they realized that and became best friends. My best friend called me a jerk and obnoxious for no reason, I was being super nice. She always hung out with them and I was left behind. They are all nice now but they don't really consider me as a good friend. I cannot wait until I'm in middle school (I'm in 5th). I watched Mean Girls and I like the people there (except the Plastic "leader") and I think the teacher is nice. I can't wait! :) I will get to leave those old friends and get new people.

There is another group in my school that I call "The Group." It's all the people who are really rude and act like they're not and ...more - maddyparrot22

Some talk "like, totally like this! " Some are cool girls, some always fuss about fashion. " daddy! I don't want to go. Too much nature! I need my hair poofed up every day. I need too have a manicure every 5 dAys! " Some females like me don't need fashion! ยก! Just... No. Somd are groups who call you nerd for being smart. Here the story! "Your such a nerd! You read your unfashionable books! We like to wear makeup and be so pretty! My daddy is so rich, we are going on a cruise tomorrow." - they hit me - ugh! They do that to me everyday. I need to teach them a lesson of their 'rich daddies' can't! " Tomorrow - takes a water bottle and spills it on them - oh! My makeup! You little tomboy! I'll get you back.: done : sorry that was a joke I would not actually do that. I am not a tomboy not a girly girl. I'm in the middle because high school guys scare me! :( but I can't stand cool girls

Has to be number one. If you are cut from a sports team, it's social suicide. You won't make friends with common interests and you'll be alone.
