Top 10 Best Things About School

Most students often consider school to be boring, a waste of time, and seven crappy hours of our lives. However, school most certainly has its positive sides. Without further ado, here are some of the best things about being in school!
The Top Ten
1 Friends

Yeah, it's fun when you have friends but what about when you don't? I have approximately 1 friend in each class, however a few years ago I had none. And everyone else had all their friends, making me the loner kid. Not that I minded much, because we were in lesson and we don't need to be speaking. But when you get into an argument in your friend group.. you really have nowhere to go to, especially when the library is closed. Apart from that, friends are cool.

Seeing Friends is what makes school awesome. School gives you an excuse to hang out and socialize with your friends. And best of all in school (Unless none of your friends go to your school, or have no friends in school) you get to see your friends 5 days a week for 9 months. It's awesome! Now yes you can see your friends on the weekends, but not for 7 hours. And also what about the friends that you can only see at school. Plus you can't hang out with all of your friends over the weekend, but you can at school. Library and Fave subjects are a close 2nd and 3rd

Indeed I do have some friends. Back in 6th grade I was smart, funny, and the guy who likes sports and video games.. My friends treated me nicely and I treat them nice. My teacher was really funny and was impressed of my knowings of geography. Next year when I went to middle school, my friends ignored me and started a big popularity group. Another Cold War AGAIN. I'm still doing good in academics and sports but I really need friends who has my back.. Middle school is HORRIBLE

I feel like friends get in the way sometimes. and bad ones can get you into trouble. One time in the 1st grade,I was in art class and my "friend" wanted me to steal markers with her. On the outside I wanted to do it to be "cool" but on the inside I refused because it was wrong and I knew I would get in trouble. I'm glad I didn't because she ended up in the principles office, and if I got in trouble, my mom would give me a woopin and ground me.

2 Leaving it

Hi every body I want to let you know that I was the one that said leaving what? so now I just want to say- who ever the person was that told me were leaving school I just want to say thanks. and now that I know what were leaving- yes it is awesome when it is time to go home. I'm guessing that this coment is going to confuse
a lot of people but I understand it.

I can't wait to graduate this year. It felt like forever to be a senior since I joined this website when I was in 8th grade.

I got really sad at my graduation last year. I hated leaving the best High School in america.

Yes! I love the excellent time when school ends and then I get to go on TheTopTens!

3 Recess Time

My school cancelled recess because they thought it would be "dangerous" and they wanted us to have more time for standardized tests and cramming for them. Damn,

So like we have gym in middle school but not recess. Like what. Recess isn't dangerous! Gym is,I should have had a concussion by now. I have gotten hit 10 times in the head by a volleyball,2 time sin the face,and I got kicked on the Side by accident while doing push ups. Like what

I don't like recess, for my friends don't seem to understand that I'm an Introvert and I want to be alone. I get more exercise running and hiding from them then I get at P.E ;.;

It's the only time when you get to catch up on the latest gossips and hang out with your pals!

4 Last Day of School

Today was the last day of school for me. Even if a lot of the peple were annoying, too many projects, and a ridiculously large amount of homework, I'll still really really miss this year. This year was one of my favorites! I participated in a lot of fun activities and had many fieldtrips. Sad to see another school year go. R.I.P 7th grade -6/10/16

Why isn't this on the top? It feels great when the bus drops you off at the bus stop and you walk or run to your house for freedom and you get 2 months off! It feels good.

So you have just finished a long day of school doing classes that you didn't like come on! end of school I amazing you can relax and spend time with your friends. if you have school ( like me ) the end of the day is great

This should be on number 1 because this is when you say bye bye to school and teachers feel depressed when it's the Last Day of School.

5 Girl Students

Meh, they're hot, but 90% of girl end up crushing on or dating jerk boys who treat them like crap, and I seriously don't understand why

Eh, I'm neutral on this at least like 75 to 85% of the girls are either really smart but too kind, cute but too annoying, too wild and crazy, or just gossip too much. The other 25
to 15% are just normal, but are a bit crazy, or the shy ones are fine with me.

There is a girl in my class I rlly like and have for the whole year and everyone knows I like her cut my friend let the secret out. The other day one of her friends came up to me and said she likes me. I didn't rlly believe at first so I waited a couple of days until everyone was saying it so I did believe it. So o went to her and asked if she would be my girlfriend and she actually said yes! so now I love girls even more but really I only love one. But she is super nice and she is ok with me being "friends" with her friends.

Girls are great and they will let you flirt and get close but they can be a bit annoying with their gossiping. I am single so it is great because they all ask me out and get close to me and we go out lots. We get along well and touch then more come. They cry a lot though so there are good things as well as bad

6 Gym

I hate gym! I'm terrible at it and I usually get hit in the face with a ball! At least one person has to trip each gym class! Besides, I thought sports were meant to be fun - there's no point grading us on them! And when you're the worst at sports/exercises in your class, despite being the smartest in everything else, you have to deal with some pretty painful taunts.

Yeah, the idiots skip it all they like and chill out while the rest of us, either thuggish jocks or people who actually care about school because of expectations, have to spend hours running around. I'm not sporty and personally, playing sport with screaming boys and girls who can't control their hormones terrifies me.

We don't have a gym room so we stay outside and sometimes inside and work on something else when its raining. We love all the games they setup though like capture the flag.

I hate gym. He won't let us throw anything with a dominant hand in a game called virus. He thinks that were afraid to get hit with the ball but half of everyone does a sport and is athletic

7 Lunch

Lunch is the best thing for me because my lunch time goes for half an hour and I hate doing work all the time but on the other hand I have to do it. Some of my friends are not cool they love doing work but now I'm friends with cool peeps now because they hate doing work and they ask to go to the toilet.

I have a nice lunch at the nearby mall with my friends, then go to the computer lab and type this, and do some other stuff I like!

Like Recess, I tend to eat my lunch in the library and make a little camp at the personal support room to uh...read.

After at least a few hours of boring, yet educational learning you finally get some time to eat and relax.

8 Funny People

In my chemistry class, there are quite a few funny students. One of them pretends to be the teacher and he says, "Raise your hand, who knows the answer? ", and I find that hilarious. He also asks other students to write their answers on the board. There is also another student who makes up funny stories about Russian and Soviet wars and once he said the phrase "Deja vu" means the same thing as a battleship. That person is from China and in my opinion, I think there is a Chinese word that sounds a lot like "Deja vu" that translates to ship. That student also made a prank to the teacher in a team game by naming everyone on the team his name. Then the teacher was asking, "Why are there so many (student's name)s on this team?! " Thanks to these students, from now on, I look forward to going to school. I hope I also have these students next semester.

Most of my school usually try too hard to be funny because well I'm pretty sure they're seeking attention and popularity. However, some are actually funny and crack me a smile or a chuckle.

My friend in 7th grade was having a tantrum and he said "Mr. Berkman, I'm gonna take your food and throw it in the trash! " I couldn't stop laughing that was so funny!
He also once imitated a girl flushing the toiled 10,000 times back in Elementary school, I was laughing like heck!
And I was playing with a frisbee that year and this guy kept making this sound: "aw *raspberry*" and I laughed so much I peed myself.
I had some amazing moments back then too, not just bad ones!

There's a gang of people that are slightly annoying, but all of them really like me! I don't mind their annoyingness nowadays, and they also are funny. One will say "Whatya mean? " in a really high pitched voice it's hilarious!

9 Your Favourite Subjects

I once had last period science with all my friends and the best teacher ever! I never thought that I would be nostalgic for school but damn that class was FUN! When we finished our labs we got to talk, there was no bull about how the bell doesn't dismiss you, and overall I had a great time!

Yes, that's why I like school. I have a lot of great teachers and a lot of subjects. I have to say that my favourite subject is science. Not only I love the subject but I love my science teacher, he's so nice.

Math, science, chemistry, technology time. Oh yes! Technology time! I also love to do Powerpoint Presentations, etc. Yeah. I know I will get like, a bunch of hate for this, but I love everything in school! (Especially friends and recess, + math! )

Honors English. The place where I am actually seen in a way that isn't negative.

10 Fridays

Fridays are awesome. The days are less stressful (work-wise), the days are shorter, the school lunches are better than normal, and there's also the fact that you have 2 days ahead of you once that day is over. I only have one problem with fridays though, and I only need 2 words to explain. REBECCA. BLACK.

You work so hard to get through the week, and when you get there it feels pretty awesome. 2 days of relaxation, hanging out, and good times are just around the corner on friday!

Fridays are awesome because you get to leave school on that day and have a weekend.

At my school, we finish straight after lunch! It's great. I highly recommend it!

The Contenders
11 Band

BEST PART EVER.

We have these band performances and even a students' Battle of the Bands. The best part? It's not a marching band--it's full on rock, pop, metal, o whatever genre befits you. Hell, even anime (the One Punch Man OST auditioning song was mad). Our band is a defending champion for three years straight counting this year, and my position there is lead guitarist and sometimes a vocalist.

The wildest band competition was when we were in a complicated round in which the first band representative to step forward and tap the bell would have to play a song provided by the judges. At that time it was Van Halen's Eruption, which caused an outraged from the audience since it was so hard to play (for them, at least). But, well...it was the best day ever since as a new member that time, I got to see our own band win the competition for the first time and bonus, that was how I earned my first kiss from my fellow bandmate.

Don't get angry at me because we all have opinions but I hated band. I was in it all through middle school. (5th-7th) It started out easy in 5th and 6th but it was a headache in 7th. My snare drum set kept falling on the ground and everyone looked at me. Thankfully I got out of band.

I love the band I play trombone with my cousin and another girl that I ended up making friends with. I got into all district band and summer band it was awesome. I did a trio trombone song of locked out of heaven ( Bruno Mars) I love band

Band is not a bad idea, but I personally prefer choir. Hadn't changed my voice even at the age of 13, I enjoy singing more than playing instruments. I'm a boy

12 Graduating

My graduation was SO awkward, I was late and since I had no friends people just looked at me like a weirdo while I was all alone, thank Jesus it's over.

My grad happened 2 years ago, feels like it was a few months ago, time does fly, I remember the excitement of grad 2 years ago, and having my last day of high school, I remember playing kahoot in my final class, and my last day of school and during my first summer it felt like I had another school year coming, since I got used to school, and I do miss school sometimes

I can't wait to graduate in June. I would rather listen to Big Time Rush or get a job than go to school.

That moment in High school that you are done with it, but you gotta do college.

13 It Gives You Knowledge

If some parts of it didn't exist, lives would be far better in America. But of course, administration wants more money in their pockets over here so they won't fix anything AT ALL.

Yeah this is right since if we didn't know anything we would sure be dumb and helpless plus we gotta know math to exchange money.

You get more smart

No, it's boring

14 You Can See Your Crush

I have a huge crush on a boy named Arturo, I miss him right now because it's summer vacation. but when I go back and I see him I'm going to run up to him screaming "Oh My God"

Excuse me, I go to an all girl's school, so something's gone wrong if I look forwards to seeing my crush in school!

But I don't have a crush.

Yeah it is so nice

15 Teachers

In university, I have a funny math professor and I always look forward to doing my Zoom class when I have him. Everyone likes him as a professor. He makes concepts easy and fun to remember, and tells us jokes and funny things about anything we are learning. And when it came to tests and examinations, all I had to do is remember his jokes and his way of doing equations. For example, he said, "On our planet, a1 + a2 is the same as a2 + a1, but if you go to another planet, a1 + a2 may be the same as a1 times a2.", and he also said, "You treat a function like a machine where there is an input and an output. x is the input, and y is the output. It's like putting oranges in a machine and your output is orange juice. It can't go the other way round. You can't put orange juice in your machine and expect to get oranges. Just like you can't put y as an input and have x as an output." With him, it didn't feel like doing math, it felt more like a game. I am writing this during the Coronavirus ...more

This one I have to say my english teacher now is the devil, no Kahoot, no phones (duh), no music, no games, no talking to your friends, no free time. Nothing! But my teacher last year was the opposite! She was amazing and one of the best teachers I ever had.

Depends on the teacher. Some are really nice while others are really mean.

Teachers are why we have knowledge and we need to keep it going.

16 You Go for Careers

Most people never end up getting a job they studied for. Let alone become successful and manage a family nowadays because life is worse for teenagers now compared to about 30 years ago. Unless you go to Harvard (Lucky you, you stayed in the education system and never learned how corrupt it was,) you're basically stuck in a ditch.

Adult learning centres can help you get a job and umm the job centre.
You can learn things from books from a shop...so I read it and I was like wow I didn't learn that in school.
Know-It-Alls just put this on here.

School. Because you totally need to know how many lines of symmetry a hexagon has to be a hockey player when you grow up.

Its not exactly the best thing, its about as enjoyable as everything else.

17 Hot Teachers

Um... this list better be for like collage students. I think middle schoolers calling their 40 year old teachers hot is disturbing. Sorry.

I'm a girl, and my Social Studies teacher is sooo hot! He's the reason I love Social Studies. I'm a teacher's pet to him. Also, he's best buds with my Science teeacher. They hang out all the time together. They're both guys.

When we have a test, I try and finish as early as possible so I can spend the rest of the time staring at the student teacher.

I can't stand to see my teachers because they are ugly. The opposite of hot.

18 Sports

! At my school we had to do 50 crunches for the girls.

19 Holidays

Goddammit, I can't actually experience any of these 'Best Things'.

Looking forward to them!

20 Boy Students

Yass! I go to a all girls school and I miss boys so much, a mixed school has less drama. boy just don't give a crap if you like the same guy as you friend. everything is far more relaxing when a guy is around. I would do anything to change schools

I gotta crush whom I figured out had a crush back at me! He is so cute, and I'm just like wow all the time.

I mean boys just float to me. Kinda annoying but I mean, who doesn't love the extra company?

Who cares if the students are boys or girls anyway?!

3rd grade: the synphony the music was so boring, and my friend and I laughed at this guy who looked like Beethoven.
4th grade: International carrot factory I hate carrots to begin with and that place smelled and I remember barfing in the factory so a teacher drove me back to school where my mom was
5th grade:lumberyard

Yep, we could go to museums, factories, amusement parks (sometimes), and other fun stuff. and zoos are boring since they don't have canines and felines here or you can't be close to them and its for kinder and 1st grade - roblox connor4808
