10 Most Hated Things About Elementary School

Some kids think elementary school is fun. Some think it's the most fun they will ever have in their lives. Well, it's not fun; it's prison

The Top Ten

1 Looking at the same teacher all day

SO TRUE...especially if your teacher is mean to you. You have to deal with the teacher for 8 hours every day while in middle and high school if you have a mean teacher you just have to suffer for 1 hour per day.

Laugh out loud yes! At least in middle school, high school, and college you have a bigger variety of faces each day to look at - NerdyPweeps

I HATE seeing the same teacher - mykaela

It really is annoying - mikeyjay

2 Walking in a single file line

Tell me about it

And in the right side of the halls

3 No lockers

Almond tree school sucked thank god I graduate - Comparisans

4 No chewing gum

Some biches be havin bad breath - mykaela

5 Coffee breath teachers

I'm a freshman in high school. ALL 8 YEARS, I HAD TO DEAL WITH THAT.

6 Dress code
7 Being quiet in the hallway

I really hate it when teachers tell you to be quiet in the hallway. It's necessary on stuff like state test, but I hate when the teacher leaves the door open and still yells at the students to be quiet. Honestly, use common sense and close the door. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 No freedom

EVERYONE tattles over EVERYTHING! Hug someone really tightly: OOOH I'm WRITING YOU UP! Bring Pokemon cards when the teacher never said anything against them: OOH I'm WRITING YOU UP! And the teachers are the same, ask for a pencil whispering to your neighbor because you broke yours, DETENTION, (that actually happened to me except the punishment was a safety patrol STICKING HER NOSE IN MY BUSINESS SOME REASON, GOING OUT OF HER WAY TO WRITE ME UP :l)

9 Class punishments

When I was in 1st grade kids were forced to stand in the "dunce corner" (really a small a carpet with large "X" duct taped on it) whenever they did something bad. They also had to face the back of the classroom. Talk about early public humiliation!

10 Short recess

We only have 20 minute recess and I have spent about a month trying to do a backhand spring on the playground but have not had enough time to do it with the 20 minutes

It's unfair because in middle school high school and college you won't have recess.

The Contenders

11 No phones
12 Immature kids

When I was in 3rd grade, one of my younger cousins was in the 1st grade. We went to the same elementary school. Sometimes when we were walking in the halls with our classes she randomly yelled out hi to me (and in my Chinese name, too! ). My classmates would give me weird looks and ask me questions while I had to explain to them that she was my younger cousin. It was so embarrassing!

Those kids who carry lunchboxes

13 Lunch meals

Our school lunch is great!

14 Holding you back for not being "socially ready"
15 Nose pickers

Tell me These Kids Wipe there (Boogers On the wall) My best Friend Leo Picked His nose In class
And I am a girl I was Laughing for 2 Sessions - BraixenBreak

16 The work

Math drills...ugh

17 Old teachers

I had old teachers in 1st and 2nd grade and they were SO MEAN to me. They would forcefully grab me by the arm and either pick me up/drag me somewhere that I didn't like.

Seriously, how can elementary school get away with abusing/scarring innocent young children like this? Those teachers should've been fired!

According to the school district's website, she is still not fired as of 2018.

18 You have to act mature in 5th grade

When I was in 5th grade I read a comic book once and the teacher told me that I wasn't supposed to read it cause "it wasn't appropriate for 5th graders"

19 Playing the recorder
20 Halloween parade

Mostly kindergarten and 1st grade kids bring their costumes to school and walk around the school grounds in a line while their parents take pictures and videos of them. The pictures may become very embarrassing once you reach high school and college age.

21 No official graduation ceremony for 5th graders

I had a ceremony for Kindergarten graduation but I didn't get one for 5th grade graduation.

22 The struggle of beating Treasure Mathstorm

In elementary school I played a game in the computer lab called Treasure Mathstorm and it was so hard. I couldn't beat it!

23 Gym class

I had to climb a rope, scoot on our butts, and do chin-ups!

24 It ends at 3:15 PM
25 The kid with the 64 pack of crayons
26 Mean/strict teachers

In 1st grade I had a teacher who got me in trouble for nothing CONSTANTLY.
In 5th grade I had a teacher who hated comic books.

27 Standing on the corner waiting for the bus

Especially during cold and inclement weather

28 Can't talk quietly in the library

In middle and high school you can talk quietly in the library but not in elementary

29 Misdiagnosing autistic kids as adhd
30 Forcing autistic kids to take unnecessary adhd medication
