Top 10 Worst Websites Schools Use

This is a list of the absolute worst educational websites that schools make students use. Feel free to add any school websites you hate.
The Top Ten
1 i-Ready

This program sucks. It makes me stay up very late only to get no progress done and my teacher to yell at me for being tired. This should be discontinued.

The reading MyPath is so easy I completed it really quickly. It doesn't even make you type anything. It just makes you answer simple comprehension and vocabulary questions! Heck, I passed every single lesson from 5th grade (where I started) to 8th grade! And I'm a 5th grader!

I-Ready is the worst of them all. Even worse is the fact that my 8th grade math teacher made the class do I-Ready for 2 hours per week in addition to MobyMax for an additional 1 hour, plus assigning us physical homework on paper all 5 days of the week. This was the 2019-2020 school year for those wondering.

As if going to school wasn't already physically and mentally draining enough. Also, I hate how it makes you repeat lessons even if you learn nothing from repeating them.

2 MobyMax

I had to do MobyMax for an hour per week from August 2019 to June 2020 when I was only 13 and in the 8th grade. Boy, did I hate it. The website is lame and is only slightly better than stupid I-Ready.

3 XtraMath

I had to do XtraMath back in 4th grade (2015-2016 school year), and I always hated the "race the teacher" thing that would always stress me out as I was terrible at math.

It put me under so much pressure! The photos of the teacher were also very distracting. This website made me and probably other people pretty mad.

I get upset because I only got about 2 seconds to solve the problems. Also, that guy on it is pretty creepy.

4 Achieve3000

I will never forget when my 7th grade history teacher assigned the class homework on Achieve 3000 for Thanksgiving Break 2018, Christmas Break 2018-19, and Spring Break 2019.

I hope I don't get her again next year because she now teaches at my current high school for 11th grade history, and I'm already in the 10th grade. She's that one teacher who assigns homework over the break.

5 GoGuardian

It's not really a website, but I added this anyway because it's spyware that some schools (like mine) install on the computers. It basically blocks most websites (including ones that actually are appropriate for school) and it spies on you even when you're in your own home.

Whoever created this extension deserves to be held accountable someday.

The blocking is annoying, and like the spying, some teachers forgot to turn off the site checking.

It's so annoying, and it scares me how the teachers are just watching us. It sucks!

6 Apex Learning

I had to use this website last year in 9th grade, and it sucked. At least my teacher didn't actually make sure we did the assignments and based our grades on the scores we got. This meant that I didn't have to do any work for months on end after I did chapter 2 and got an 80% score overall.

7 Achieve3000 Math

My geometry teacher makes the class use this, and it sucks.

8 IXL Math

My friend told me that she was doing IXL and it was so stressful. She had to do 107 questions because she got super stressed. It was hard.

I'm supposed to be doing it now, but it's so depressing. My mom is wondering why I don't want to study. It is because of how stressful and annoying it is.

Oh, and I have to use it 1 hour a day every day. I use this because I have a tutor that put me up to it (by the way, my mom is forcing me to do IXL). Lucky you if your parents don't know about this website. If they do, say goodbye to your fun life.

Don't even get me started on this. IXL Math is the worst! It doesn't teach kids anything and just lowers confidence.

9 Illuminate Education

My elementary school made us do boring tests on this website.

10 IXL

Worst thing ever. The smart score is rigged, and lots of kids have had breakdowns because of this (including me). Plus, it costs a lot of money, which is pointless.

The worst educational extension known to mankind.

The Contenders
11 CAASPP

If you don't know what this is, it's basically the state testing website for California students.

12 McGraw Hill

The website won't let you log in, and it has online textbooks that your teachers don't even make you use once, so it's pretty pointless.

The games are so poorly coded, and teachers don't even use the other 50% of this so-called app. It's more like rotten trash.

13 BrainPOP

The videos don't make much sense, and the quizzes are very off-topic. You really need to listen to pass these assignments.

14 Big Ideas Math

It's trash. There are spelling errors everywhere, the math can be wrong, and worst of all, it came from a book, so a lot of the text from the book gets cut off. I remember one time the instructions on the website said, "In exercises 13-1." It got cut off! It was ridiculously dumb.

15 Raz-Kids

The books weren't exciting, and the quizzes were very annoying. Didn't teach me anything.

16 Blocksi

The staff members of my school use this stupid website to block basically anything video-game-related. The only exceptions I've found are most Wikia Fandom pages and a website called Yandex Games. Everything on YouTube relating to video games is blocked.

17 DeltaMath

It is not fast-paced, but it is easy if you understand math class too.

18 Reflex Math

Reflex Math puts me under so much pressure! Don't even get me started on Coach Penny. She wastes time and puts pressure on kids. The games are fun, but they don't give enough time.

19 DreamBox Learning
20 Reading Plus

You had to read at a certain pace, and you couldn't put it higher or lower sometimes. Also, the stories don't help you, and the vocabulary is very difficult as most of the time all of the options are wrong. Even my teacher struggled with some.

22 LanSchool

Some schools use this to torture students during class.
