Top Ten Best School Subjects


The Top Ten

1 Science

Science is interesting!
you get to learn about how everything forms and other stuff - OzzyVanHalen

The reason I love Science so much is because we learn so much! From mitochondria to the solar system to the anatomy and physiology of the human body, Science means the world to me.

Science = Life, Life = Science

In Science, we carry out so may cool experiments and learn so much about our beautiful world. Think about how much Science carries an impact on all of us. Think. From building bridges we cross without thinking twice everyday, to making vaccines so we are safe from disease and to plants, which we pass by every single day but never spare a thought for them. Science teaches us so much about this world and what makes it up. Without Science, this world would have been equivalent to nothing at all.

But the biggest thing about Science and the most beautiful, is how Science comes together. Science may be boring at times, I admit, but Science gives us hope, which is such an empowering thing to grasp and take hold of because it gives us the motivation to continue ...more

Science teaches us about the world around us.
It is a great subject and I have always loved it, and always will (especially biology and physics)
Science is also good because being good at science (especially physics) can teach us things about maths, and vice versa.

Science is the best

2 Math

Math is a great subject that can exercise your logic and problem solving skills. It's not a subject where you need to remember vast amounts of equations, you just need to recognize the type of question. It's also a very graceful subject, because an answer is either RIGHT or WRONG.

You just have to learn logic and solving problems using the limited skills. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Math is interesting. Once you learn its relationship with science. For example, using parabolas to find out whether an object will go over a wall. It is also the reason everything is safe and under control. If there was no trajectory class most people would be dead after riding roller coasters. I don't understand the common hatred for Mathematics, best subject ever.

It is a great subject. Math is not only in everything but sometimes its really fun! In primary school 3 years ago we used to play lots of fun games in maths. Your brain is like a muscle and Math helps your logical thinking, powerful brain learn new stuff and test your knowledge which is very good for your brain. When you go to uni (college) to get a job you'll know lots of great skills to get whatever good job you want to do. I mean it doesn't matter if you get a bad or a good job, its all about the understanding any why you got that job. Math is one of the only interesting, fascinating subjects in the whole world for a few reasons. Like Math is literally in everything no joke you can go in the world to see if math is in everything I mean measuring width and more I mean seriously. Like I said before this is an amazing, cool subject and it's my favorite subject.

Get Maths lower.
No one needs a bad teacher to be bad at maths that's an excuse because you like it and are good at the subject. I had nasty art teacher and I love art I learnt to colour from the age of 3.

3 English

English has to be my favorite. I have no clue why math is 2nd. Worst and most confusing and useless (partially) subject. English makes you love writing. On my homework I always leave English for last because it's the easiest. But seriously I don't adore reading but writing is so amazing and make you feel like a million bucks. All you have to do is think of characters and then think of a plot. Even though English has dumb stuff you will never need, it's so interesting. Like a contraction, you use this everyday but you don't know the name. Contraction is a grouping of two words to merge into one. Like do not = don't

I'm not a huge fan of school but English is my favorite subject. I'm committed to it and all my English teachers have found joy in my work. I've won a lot of English awards and my grades in English are always good. I'm really proud of that. Without English, we wouldn't be able to understand any word on TheTopTens. My parents even said I shouldn't take a course in English in University because I'm already so good at it and I agree with them a 100 percent. I thank my Year 3 teacher, Laura Rodgers, a lot for my success in English. She really pushed me and encouraged me. My work was so good, she wanted me to live with her for a couple of days. I can't blame her. I was so sad when I didn't win the award for English in Year 6. I deserved WAY MORE THAN FRAZER! But I admit, I didn't try my hardest that year. And I'm older now so that depressing incident doesn't bug me anymore. Except for this one time when I'm talking about it. This might sound like I'm going overboard with my love for this ...more - davakoh

English was decent. I remember having the highest grade in the class than anyone else there. - codgtamk34

English is da best no homo

4 History

I hate school a lot but History is actually a fun lesson in my opinion, we get to learn about the tragedy or basically the things that happened in the past and once we learn the moral values of it, we learn how to not repeat the same mistakes like the people of the past did. I also love reading things that are history-related, especially when it's about America's history. But other kinds of History is also amazing! - Hoenn4Ever

It is amazing, You can learn so much because were ever you are there will always be history to learn

History is BEYOND Amazing! My favorite subject is WW2 and... well basically anything! How can you NOT love it? It can combine every single subject at once. We learn from it's mistakes, and it helps (and helped) the world become what it is today. History can be treated like FANTASY, for goodness sake! If you don't think about it as history, that is. PLUS! Their are so many fun ways to learn history! In fact, my favorite genre of books is historical fiction (Specifically on the Holocaust... I am obsessed). Its like a GIANT fantasy book! You can never stop reading it, because history has been since... well, I am not exactly sure. Just a long time. So, the basic point is, history (English and English are also pretty great too. Math too. Science uck.) is the best!

It's my favorite subject because it is interesting and helps us learn from peoples mistakes so we as the world can have a better future

5 Art

Oh come on how the hell is math second place and science is first? what. My class is groaning and moaning when we have to do that. Art is what we enjoy and is fun. Like I'm the biggest artist in my grade, and I personally love art. This deserves to be higher up on the list

Art is not only some kind of lines and shapes on a piece of paper, its way more than that. We can expose our mind, our feeling and anything only on a plain white paper. Even when people always said that math is much more fun and I don't really know why because for me I would rather choose art than math but different people have different likes and dislike and I really respect that. The point is, art is a form of life. We all start doing art when were kids even we don't actually know what were doing but then no one ever said that it was wrong. See! Art will never be a mistake, it only can be a masterpiece. To the art lovers out there, keep on doing it if its bring out the best in you. Art is in our blood from the start, we just have to bring it out and practice to make them stay outside. Art is beautiful, art is life.

I personally suk at math, and I'm kinda... Y'know... Voted by the yearbook/students the best artist in my school of 400 people... :3. I think with math, there's only one answer. You have to repeat equations over and over, like a parrot, untill you get it right. I still think its important, but some people go to unneeded legnths to support math... You still have to ask yourself, 'what would the world be without math? '. But with art, there's no wrong answer. You can express yourself, and let your mind run free, whether its carving, sketching, painting, or everything inbetween. You can venture into the far depths of mankind itself, bearing only your paintbrush, and your mind. And with that, you can make wonders. I don't know... I guess I just feel special :3. Anyone can echo times tables, but you have to have that special something to be REALLY good at art, to possess the thing that makes other gawk and stare... And that's why I love it :) - danielle.

MY FAVORITE! - HermioneKG4884

6 Computers

I loved computer classes - codgtamk34

This one is bad - Kubbelstone

Computer classes are fun - Jayyu

This subject is easy. - Mateo65

V 59 Comments
7 Music

I don't like Music class. But I like listening musical songs!

Music can relax me! Music can also regulate our mood. So I don't think music is one of the best subjects! Of course, this view is for me. - jiangduo005

Music is everywhere!

In my school we play guitars

8 Physical Education

I choose science if we did real potions


It kinda like rep gym, where go on bus and you think thank can't in a gym, like play pool, beach volleyball, ice skate, mini putt, bowling and some time tennis and some time real golf, rock climb and kick boxing and your play game in your gym some time and you learn different of dance. There two more things about rep gym it the only gym class where girls and boys combined, and last thing you only have do health the first two weeks or the last 2 week depending on the grade 11 rep gym teach and reg grade gym you do health 5 time in 5 week. Rep gym only in grade 11 and 12.

I would vote Sicence if my class did actual Science.

9 Drama

Drama is by far my favourite subject. I love being able to express myself and my emotions and just become whoever or whatever I want to be. The feeling of capturing an audience, even if it's just your class, with a performance and your transformation into a person or maybe an abstract concept is well, magical. Most of all, it's the only time I feel confident. The confidence I feel when your class actually respects you (for once) is something I don't usually feel, and it's not something I could ever give up. In short, the ability to create an atmosphere and bring a performance alive is possibly the best feeling you could imagine. In fact, I love it so much, I'm actually excited for Mondays, as that is the day I have it on my timetable.

We get to release energy and scream!

I have a crap life, so I can be somebody else.

MY FAVORITE! - HermioneKG4884

10 Geography

You get to learn about the world you are on. - Grobu

Da best subject. - MegadethFan07

I wish this was a mandatory school subject - TheInsomniac

Doing it for A Level then going on to teach it. Simply an amazing subject which should be COMPULSORY!

The Contenders

11 Chemistry

This is very interesting.
This deserves to be number two

Come on, who doesn't want to blow up stuff!? I'm kidding, sounds cool, but I don't take it. - HermioneKG4884

Learning about chemical reaction is cool.

Chemistry gets a bad rap because people think it is just a subset of science, which it is, but that doesn't mean it is less important.

V 18 Comments
12 Physics

Physics is the best! The absolute best! Absolutely nothing can compare.
Mathematics is second to Physics. Those two are the only subjects that I'll stick with until the day that I die.
I just cannot see how Physics got 0.4% of the vote, or how the highly EXCRUTIATING PE outranked it?!
Tell me, what is better to look at than black holes, antimatter, superfluids, Schrodinger's Cat, and many other fascinating concepts?!
Rhetorical Question. You can't argue that learning how to kick a ball is NOT INTERESTING, but Planck's Law and Quantum Entanglement DEFINITELY ARE!

You know all those interesting things you said? What ever happened to those? Why can't we learn about THOSE things? Why are we learning about vectors, mass, etc? It's boring now. - mattstat716

Physics is THE most awesome and THE most important subject in the history of the universe, and I swear upon my life that I am not saying that just because I'm a geek. Think about it; we use it for everything: glasses, phones, computers, lighting, cooking, car safety, automatic doors, T.V., Internet, electricity; the list goes on and on and on and on...

When you study physics, you study the underpinning of everything around you. You are one of the people in this world with a wild and powerful insight into the dynamics of nature itself. And who knows, you may one day crack the nut to reveal a mind-blowing principle which nobody would have thought possible. Whether you're working on gravitational interactions, quantum mechanics or relativity, you're applying fundamentals to create a recipe of everything. So really, what could be better? - PositronWildhawk

Physics is secondary to mathematics because it is a school of thought that derives its conclusions through mathematical proofs but I agree that this subject is the best in the world. It connects the abstract ideas in math and gives a student proof that life and the world around them depends on the numbers they've always hated.

13 Reading

Yes, math, science, history, computers (etc.) are important for your health and education and can get you great jobs, but what about reading? With reading you can express every emotion and feeling you have, your problems, your life. Anything, basically. Reading is in most of the subjects anyways, reading math formula's, reviewing science, social studies, history and other subjects really. Come to think of it, reading is pretty important. We need to learn how to read so we CAN study the multiplication tables, formulas etc. We need it so we CAN review science, social studies and more.

Well, I think reading can cultivate temperament. Reading is really a great blessing in life. Read the books you like, the books you want to read, the books you want to read, savor them carefully in quiet time and space, think carefully, so as to better understand the world, feel the ups and downs of life, and then have a pleasure and happiness. - jiangduo005

I don't really like school

This is cool. - HermioneKG4884

14 Social Studies

Social Studies is a great subject. Social Studies allows people to learn about the past, modern and changing world that we live in and how we can contribute to it. It is a wonderful subject that helps people connect with their world and helps them understand much more about human activity, world cultures and the establishment of institutions and systems. Through this subject, people learn much about how people relate, work and interact with each other.

Social studies is really one of the best subjects. Although it seems boring its really helped me a lot. Plus you get to learn about people in the past which can inspire you to do great things

I HATED this subject when I was in America for a year. Why do we need to learn about some dead guy who put his name on a piece of paper. Well, at least its not as bad at having to sing to a flag and worship it like it's a god every morning.

Social studied is probably my #1 favorite subject. It's really interesting and I'm learning about the amendments. It's cool

15 Cooking

My own meals did taste good. - codgtamk34

I personally like cooking very much, which will be an indispensable thing in my future life. But unfortunately, only a few parts of our country have cooking classes, and I live in areas where there are no cooking classes. It makes me very sad. - jiangduo005

Because it is important to know how to cook

The main reason I signed up for Family Studies. - 3DG20

16 Biology

Why is it too low :(

Love Biology! Learning about the human body!

Biology is wonderful and the best because the life that you study is so fascinating - Swiftdawn

17 Astronomy

I like it, just as long as it's not like, "reading the stars to determine the future"! What is that crap!? - HermioneKG4884

BEST SUBJECT EVER! P.S What Is Math Doing On This List, It's Terrible - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

My favorite science branch - TheParable

Astronomy rules! Doesn't everyone wonder what's up in the sky? The universe is such a vast, eventful place. We're a tiny Earth, surrounded by amazing planets, stars and other kinds of matter! It's really too bad that not many kids my age enjoy outer space.

18 Writing

At least it's not 53 or something, but it should be 1! - HermioneKG4884

One of the only ones on here I actually like - Juniper

This should be at the top of the list!

Writing is one of the most free subject. You aren't limited to do one single style. Also, writing makes us use our mind for creativity, not just facts.

V 15 Comments
19 Spanish

I wish my school thought Japanese because no offense to the Spanish, but I'm moving to Japan when I'm older and I'm probably never gonna visit spain

It's the best class

Spanish is a great language used in great countries. It's an interesting language and the countries with it have interesting culture, history etc. It's a shame many people dislike Spanish. It's a great subject and I'm working on fluency in Spanish.

I'm currently in my first year of middle school, and I love Spanish class! My teacher is so nice and pretty funny too. I've made a hundred on basically every assignment, test, and hopefully projects. (We did them on Spanish- speaking countries.) - ShyGuySwag

Entertaining - mathguy37

Amazing subject learn to live

I like creating laser weapons

I love math reading englist science and just thank you guys who put this thing on the what ever it and

22 Band

Trombone gang - Kubbelstone

Best Subject I play The Tenor Saxophone

Band is so much fun! You get to play cool instruments like the saxophone and trombone! There are also many other cool instruments to learn. It is basically like recess because you have so much fun but you are still learning!

I LOVE BAND SO MUCH! Definitely my favorite class of the day. It has always entertained me and it's so fun performing on stage. - littlestpetpet41813

24 Literature

I only liked reading the Odyssey...

Literature is love, literature is life

Take this piece of trash, off the list! - 50

25 Religion

This subject is unique and Jesus is coming soon and true teachings of God are very very useful today and without knowing God we will be punished.

I wish my school still had religious classes. I love that they incorporate Our Good Father into our regular school day. Praise God - Swiftdawn

A subject dedicated to learning about God the Father is simply wonderful. Religion is filled with important life skills and lessons. It teaches people about life, creation, the human purpose, Christ's community and the Christian promise. It reminds people that when they develop a harmonious, faithful and strong relationship with God, they will discover the gift of ultimate happiness.

This sounds so amazing! Too bad my elementary school doesn't have it and I think my middle school that I'll be going to next year has one. ☹️ - HermioneKG4884

26 Political Education

So interesting! Political studies is so important! - Swiftdawn

Politics and Law is an important subject in our modern and changing world, where we can learn about structures and principles of government in our society, as well as participate as active citizens in accordance with the democratic process and social justice. Civics and citizenship education means power to the people!

Don't u really think that it should be raised in all among people because it is an essential part of life that's what the reasons behind it...

It is such a great way to learn about our Government and rights!

Chinese is the best! My teacher is hilarious and really fun. It's also kinda easy if you study

Da heck is this class - Kubbelstone

This is one of the most uncomfortable classes to sit through. I probably didn't even need it this year; my English teacher talks about sex so much that I practically got everything I would've learned from sex ed there. (I hated my English teacher, he's a perv).

Having sex it good

42 Swimming Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

I know every stroke except butterfly, and swimming is just good.

Only if my school have this class... - GirlyAnimeLover

I'm on the high school swim team. It works every muscle in your body, provides a full circle of healthy exercise, tones you up, and you get to make great friends while doing so. Also, it looks good for colleges and lets competative high schoolers get a shot to race against not only other schools, but also students from the same school.

Swimming is literally my life

Whoever put this... "Ich Hasse Mathe. Look up what this means. But the funny thing is, for this, (what the German says) I am an A+ student! " It means, "I hate math." I really want to take German for 6th grade. - HermioneKG4884

Probably the best foreign language of the world, for people who speak English as their mother tongue.

Learning foreign languages like German are even more useful than this rubbish called "Maths".
