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

My school blokeded me bakrund paper on google and they takie awey meh freedum bruh! #Skewl #IS #FO #Jabronies

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!

They are so rude

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

Damn I hate this I look like zombie

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.

The worst is when the teacher tells the score out loud it's so embarrassing

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.

Or and informations of wiki its like a nightmare she is learning from wiki then she teaches us DAMN

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, we have disorders, we wear glasses, we are not in PERFECT shape, or we do not own a gun. There is even a teacher at my school who is a bully and gives kids essays for sneezing in class. When I get bullied and report to a teacher, they do nothing, so I have to either deal with it, or fight back and when I or someone else takes action against the bully, they treat the bully better than the person or persons they were bullying.

Death to popular kids and bullies. They don't deserve to live.

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).

They are so self center

7Annoying 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.

That one kid who NEVER wants to do anything and forever argues with the teacher. -_-

8Too 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 the teenage years and dictates the lives of Americas youth!

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.

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.

I told my friend I liked this one girl, and he couldn't keep that one secret for me. In math, we split into groups of 12 for different stations, and he told his whole group. Next thing I know everyone is pressuring me to ask her out. And I am the shy type too. Everyone is trying to push us together (literally). It is annoying and I hate it.

The Contenders

11Teachers, 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.

Oh my gosh. This is what bothers me about teachers. THEY ARE HYPOCRITES!

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

It's all about having a girlfriend or boyfriend. I say who cares? Nobody. It doesn't matter until you become an adult.

14People With Disabilities Get Picked On

I have adhd and several learning disabillities and people always talk about me being stupid :-(

I have minor learning disabilities and problems with memory due to my epilepsy. In middle school & high school, most of the teachers refused to accommodate me, acted like I was an inconvenience and didn't deserve to have their attention at all. Some of the teachers actively ridiculed me, gave me assignments that were too difficult for me to complete, talked down to me, and basically just made my life hell. I was ecstatic to graduate high school in 2011.

I have minor anxiety problems and I am treated like a ritard

I have autism, but no one picks on me for it. I have however heard someone use the word "autistic" as an insult. I was so pissed off and I felt so murderous. - Murvine_Taylor

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 that annoys me. They ignore unpopular people and if they do talk to them, they will accuse them of liking someone. It's crazy. And most of them are "dating" when they are 12/13 years old! Come on!

The Little Mrs. Perfects: The popular girls who are too nice for their own good. They are teachers pets, and can't say a mean thing about ANYONE. For example, when someone makes a joke about how awful they are, the Mrs. Perfect would be like "oh no, that's not true! ". That's just being too nice. It really annoys me for some reason.

The Smart Ones: The girls who aren't popular whatsoever because they are smart, but they don't care about popularity whatsoever (including me). Me and my friends are pretty good people, we aren't in all of the dating drama (which is insane), and we can actually have a good time without worrying about a reputation. The smart ones can be tomboys or girly girls (I have friends in both of these categories).

The Other Guys (I really don't have a name for them) They are all of the guys that aren't athletic. Some are smart, some are weird, and some are ok to me. I can usually have a conversation with them without people accusing me of liking them (which I don't).

There is a guy in my school who is so idiotic that he deserves his own category. For the purposes of this, I won't use his real name so I will just call him Austin.

Ok, so Austin is a guy that struts around talking about himself ALL OF THE TIME! He will brag about his apparent "amazing" house with his pool and basketball court. I've actually have been to his house for a project, not just once but TWICE, and he bragged about it the whole time. Austin will talk about his amazing basketball abilities EVERY DAY! It's insane. He plays the sax, and he says that he should have gotten into the better band (when he got into the worst band). He talks about himself more than that, but there is not a point of putting everything on here, because that would take WAY too ...read 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 they always sit together at lunch. One of them looks at me a lot (Obviously likes me) but I don't talk back because I know that he is in The Group. The girls in the group look too skinny and I feel like they only are friends because of looks and stuff. Sometimes I remind myself that they are mean because a lot of my good friends are now with them and became mean. But luckily I have my best friend Camila who loves the same things I love. For some reason she's bullied by some people in the group so I have to stand up for her. I always have to say to them "Don't be mean! " then they say "Teasing is not bullying" and I'm like, wow what idiots. Or they'll say "You always stand up for her, just give her space" and I'm like, "What else do I do, let her be bullied by you jerks? " Honestly, get a lot of best friends instead of a clique. I have everyone in my class except the bullies and annoying kids as my friends. So pretty much 85% of the class is with me. I hate cliques! - 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

At lunch there is always a bunch of people in every table for some reason. Either they are cliques or that's where people hang out. So it really feels awkward when you are standing near a clique you have no part of. But the worst part is that it makes you feel excluded if you are not in a clique! I bet half the cliques ever made was by some people wanting to feel special. In the words of Rush, " Conform or be cast out! ". - MusicalPony

18Religious 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

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

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 wasn't even trying to force him to be a Catholic and he was still putting it down by saying "God isn't here right now" when I said "God help us all."

Based on my experiences at secondary school, there were always cliques who picked on (mostly Asian) other ethnicities. One of my best friends constantly got called a 'dirty paki' by this cesspool of racists who undoubtedly adopted half of these opinions from their parents, Despite the fact that numerous friends of this guy had told teachers of these insults, and more often than not they would go off with no more than a measly warning, likely to do it again in future. Racist supremacists suck.

This one girl who was Asian had a dog. She told the class it died. Then this idiot said, "It's for the best, you probably would've eaten it."

Racism is the stupidest thing in history. I'f you're discriminating between the color of someone's skin you may as well be discriminating between the color of someone's eyes. News flash to all of you KKK black hating scumbags out there, we are all the same species and you're demented ideology is enough to make Jesus through up.

Everyone is the same (kinda) on the inside, but people can be so shallow these days!

Please, why don't people accept others with different skin?

Racism is something that needs to end. - Turkeyasylum
