Top Ten Most Common Rules at School

The Top Ten Most Common Rules at School

1 Raise your hand before you speak

This list should be named "Most disobeyed school rules" - Animefan12

You need to raise your hand for other to realize you are not yelling you are raising you hands

Yeah because you have to give other kids a chance to answer and it is disrespectful to just blurt our in the middle of class

I think you should raise your hand before you speak so everyone knows your going to talk so they will listen

2 Be on task

Nice people making friends ask a get number do ask you did is she talk the be Hi Say

Task! My class even can fight my teachers back

The rule that nobody obeys.

I always zone out, and I miss all the directions. - Luckys

3 No eating in class

I sneak food in class and other people beg me for some or they will tell on me

I still eat in class without getting caught. Its easy just chew slowly so it looks like your not eating and have your food in your lap so no one sees. It works for me at least. - cosmo

I sneak food to class in high school all the time and I NEVER got caught

When I am really hungry I eat some chips. So Put the bag in the bench and out the chips fast in your mouth without the teach notice and chew with your saliva. That what I do and I never got caught - TheTopTenVoter

4 Keep your hands and feet to yourself

I was told this... then someone was literally fighting me and all the teachers are like, "why didn't you defend yourself? " I was literally told not too.

If it was not a rule lots of people would have no teeth and a blacck eye

Should we cut them off or you will change the rules

The most disobeyed one

5 Be respectful to other students

Could they teach that to my classmates? Because they don't know the definition of respectful. - CartoonsGirl

Sometimes teachers are disrespectful to the students as well

CartoonsGirl we must go to the same school or something I have yet to be told something nice by anyone at my school.

You should talk calmly and firmly to other students

6 No talking when the teacher is talking

After th teacher is done talking you can raise your hand and tell her what you need to.

Teacher: Why are you talking when I'm teaching?
Me: Why are you teaching when I'm talking? - Pegasister12

You should never talk when the teacher is talking because you might miss something important

It is right that we should not talk while our teacher is talking. My class seems a little talkative

7 All assignments must be done on time

I agree with this, unless there is a medical reason and/or valid reason to have not done the assignment

Would you rather do your homework or be scolded by the teacher/call parents

That's lit brat

Complete all the assignments at time

8 Get to school on time

My friends always late and they didn't say anything

GET to SChOOl on TImE or yOUr PaREnts MIgHT be arREstEd

My friends always late to come to school but the teachers didn't even know that they had come in.

Our class gets in trouble when one person is late for class or disturbs the class

9 Pay attention

I pay attention to the dreams I have in class does that count?

No I don't care about you dreams now get back to your useless essay about silver trading in Europe in the 1600's and 1700's! - 0w0uwu

If you don't pay attention you don't get work done.

Yea... I hardly ever do that. - Minecraftcrazy530

To the guy that said if you don't pay attention you don't get your work done. TEACHER'S PET!

10 No running

This rule is bad I can't gut up 3 levels open my locker gat all the way down go across the field and get to class in 5 minuets without running. I can barely do it with running.

The one I hate the most,the only way to not get late is run so that's the most crazy rule I ever know

What if there is a fire or explosion. You have to run in situations like that. - cosmo

I've had a sprinting race with my best friend before! - Nateawesomeness

The Contenders

11 Always use the bathroom at break and lunchtime

If I gotta go I gotta go. I once nearly gave the teacher some fudge because of this - PICKLEMAN

Ikr! I am a woman, which means I don't choose when stuff comes out of me. So... you'll just have to get a bloody chair then... oh well... - HyenaLover

That is wrong

So we have to pee our pants, then...

12 Always remain in your seat

Teachers move around why can't we

So should we pee on the chair

Fair point though...

As someone who suffers from ADHD, I'm always getting out of my seat. And when I do stay in my seat, I'm not paying any attention at all. - RockFashionista

13 Don't vandalize school property

It's not vandalizing. It's called art. We learn it in school

It is true if u want your name to remain in the school do something good

Good job buddy

U shall not!

14 Do not shout in the class

I agree cause if we shout we could disturb the other class that could be paying attention

I really like this among all

Yet teachers shout at us all the time

I agree so much!

15 Be nice

Only to people who are nice to you!

Be nice if they deserve it

Not to a bully - ElSherlock


16 Don't use foul language

I use foul language at school sometimes, it was awesome. Plus, this goes the same to all of my friends who are at school and other students. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

How come some teachers can do it

If only others would follow that rule

Yea do not do that kids

17 Don't chew gum

I disagree because it is not changing anything in your education

Gum actually helps it strengthens your teeth so yeah

This one makes sense bcs of the lazy students who stick the finished gum anywhere and everywhere

My homeroom teacher came into class one day and she was chewing gum... so if the teachers are breaking this rule, it's kind of pointless. My classmates always chew gum. I don't chew it but I don't like it

18 Stay focused

That is the same as #10 - Animefan12

... What if there is a fire... - DapperPickle

19 No racism

I personally think that racism is stupid, mainly because we're all people, we all have feelings, and no one wants to be left out or bullied because they are black or white, etc. Deep down underneath a human's skintone or color, we are all (well almost), good people. So stop judging and start fighting against it!

This one is the most sensible. Stop hating on blacks, asians or pacific islanders! - MChkflaguard_Yt

My high school special ed teacher hates me and I'm Asian. I'm the only Asian in the class and I constantly get in trouble for no reason.

Stop hating on people - GatorBoy

20 No fighting

Firstly this should be thought to the ALWAYS BULLYING people!

Beef has to be dealt with - gp30-47

This happened too much at my school. Bullies asked for it. - Userguy44

This happens at my school all the time - ElSherlock

21 Your pencil should be talking not your mouth

What is this

It means that the teacher wants you to be quiet and do your work

The hell is this

Sooo kids can't do that got it..

22 Wash your hands

They say wash your hands but then there is no soap

Schools don't allow their students to use the bathroom to do this sometimes. That's why I carry around some hand sanitizer with me at all times.

Because you want your hands clean

Washing your hands is important - ElSherlock

23 Use the correct uniform

In India, if it is any student's birthday, they are allowed to wear their favourite dresses. Dunno whether it is applied in other countries. - Animefan12

I hate school uniform I don't want to wear the same things as every one else I was made unique so let me look unique at school as well as at home

Not every school has uniform. My school dose not wear uniform

America is the lucky country they don't have uniforms.

24 Stay focused on school work

of course

I get detention for this


25 Be responsible

Or else we'll go to prison...Oh wait, we're already there!

I hate that kind of lame


26 Follow the dress code

Our school says that boys must have short hair. But l like long hair. Dress code I hate you

I don't know

More common


27 Must keep pants on

What if a girl wants your D

Why is this even a rule!?

What the hell

Have sweetpants and jeans

28 No loud talking in class

What if it is loud in the class while you are doing group work? /

29 No taking off shirt and whipping others

My friend done it once

Students actually do that?

This should be allowed

Yea do that bois

30 Don't talk to each other

Say what now... now I will say nothing when the teacher says converse in your group. She asks why, I show her this page.

That's bull that is the only reason I come to school

Why? - Userguy44

The only interesting thing about school is socializing. I don't do it often but I do it. But still ;-; - 0w0uwu

31 No phones in class

My school has to put our phone on the Teacher's table and we can't play our phones

My classmates secretly bring phones to school. The teachers know that but they don't care. - TheFourthWorld

Yes call in class

That's stupid but in highschool, you can have your phone

32 No cursing unless you really have to

There are reasons to curse but most of the time it's unnecessary. - 0w0uwu

Sometimes we just all need to curse

Correction: No cursing AT ALL

This is true

33 Keep class room neat and clean, and well decorated

Why do you need to clean if your classmate is going to make a mess x3


34 No foul language

What if we're learning about female dogs and I have a question about it?

Wow the female dogs mean something else right?

umm ya no

35 No drugs

Of course. Drugs will distract you from school and why do you need drugs at school? - Userguy44

They will make you see tripy colors and distract you in the middle of class

There should be


36 Be kind to the children who are in lower classes and respect the students who are in your class or in higher grades

Ya, no seniors killing preschoolers. - WorldPuncher47592834

Seniors: It's free real estate - 0w0uwu

37 Obey the rules


38 Always be in line

39 Respect your teachers

But some teachers don't respect the students

As a good student you are to respect your teachers because they are the ones impacting knowledge in your brains and if you want to achieve your dreams you must be respcetful

This list should be named "Most disobeyed school rules" - Animefan12
You deserve to be a god animefan12

40 Don't sleep in class

I've slept in class before
1. When I'm finished so my current teacher doesn't mind too much
2. When last year's teacher was repeating himself for literally the 100th time cause the class won't listen

Yeah, and if you do, the teacher will send you to the nurse's office because they think you're on drugs or something.

But I can't do this :/

some people need to sleep.😴

41 Do not make a mess

Just to make your class neat n clean

42 Allow everyone to play with you

Was always told this in school, and it also ties in with if someone wants to sit with you you must let them

Eepvertone should have someone to play with.


Good thing this isn't established at my school. I am enemies with virtually every girl in the class. They are very sexist. If I had to play with them...
And it doesn't help that I don't like playing with the boys.

43 No sound claps
44 No pencil throwing

Haha, I remember someone throwing a pencil at me an I nearly got stabbed in the head... What a sharp pencil.

Pencil throwing is mean and harsh

Why not my friend did it and it got stuck to the wall

I did at school, but you know, I was a naughty kid. - Userguy44

45 Be kind

If you want to go to recess you should be kind and respectful

I like trains

Teens that wear shirts like that may get in trouble even if they are not bad.

Depends on the shirt - 0w0uwu

I can't respect the confederate side of amerikey

47 Show fairness to people

If you are not kind or respectful you won't go outside for recess

48 Stand in a proper line when going to assemblies or laboratories

You can't play in the bathroom because it is not good
