Top Ten Reasons High School Is Better Than Middle School
The Top Ten
Ok so at my middle school we got to pick classes but my gosh it was so limited they might as well just put you in a random one. I finally got so much more independence over what classes I took in high school both academically and electives. My middle school didn't even have computer classes of any sort (which is rare to see now so it gives you an idea of how poor the school was).
In my middle school, I couldn't even take a language class aside from the one they forced everyone to do, now I can go all the way up to French 4 if I want. Besides, I can actually join advanced classes now, which weren't a thing back at my middle school for whatever reason.
In grade 8 you can only choose 1 course but in older grades you get to choose more instead of doing regular classes
In my high school. I am not allow to pick my own classes. But I can ask to take difficult classes.
Actually, this was noticeable even in 8th grade. There are still bullies, believe me. Usually it seems to be that if you're not totally dumb you end up just flipping the switch and maturing, but then there are those people who stay being a complete dick to everyone else only to realize no one else likes them. They've decided not to act more respectful and trust me, they pay the price. Back to what we were discussing, there is certainly bullying, just not in the way your used to. In middle school, bullying was seen as cool to pretty much everyone for some reason, now the people who still think that are pretty much in their own bubble as it were. So, overall, 75% of people mature, while the other 25% lose their intellect and push people around.
I wasn't really looking forward to another middle school merging with us, but the other middle school was actually way nicer than the middle school I was in. - SubliminalMessages
My friend at church, Lydia, is about 15 and in the 9th grade and she said people are nice. - Garythesnail
My school has bully's who thinks there so cool and later In life they will end up alone and high on drugs
My parents say that I'll start liking school in Grade 9 or 10. I hope it's true. - Animefan12
3 years later after I posted this comment, now I'm in 11th grade, and I do enjoy the syllabus, I still hate school with a passion for shoving insane amounts of workload on a regular basis. - styLIShT
You are more wiser and older but remember you are responsable about your behaviour
Middle school is kind of just preparing for high school so
I haven't even went to middle school
High school you have to put yourself out there to make friends because you have a lot of different classes, but if you find that you aren't very good friends with one group then you can meet a different group of people
There are less than 300 kids at my school, but in high school, there are many groups to choose from.
Really just depends where you go to. For some, you have to deal with water as a replacement for tomato sauce in spaghetti, plus raw food, but for others, you get your average lunch. Then there's those people who practically eat gourmet meals.
The food at my school is delicious and really cheap and just AMAZING
That includes pizza and chicken nuggets.
Your disgusting, and its an insult for all girls. R boobs all u care about?
Sorry are you a pervert or something - MChkflaguard_Yt
Perverts! Perverts! Perverts!
I mean that is true, but what the hell has it to do with... - JustAnAccount
Say that to the Middle Schools in British ones in England and Wales. Wiki it.
Fortunately they are not everywhere. I never went to one but most of them look like a Primary School with a different name with the ages.
In middle school they were picky about everything and my high school I don't even know what my dress code is
Pretty much as long as you aren't over exposed, you can wear pretty much whatever you want (unless you are in a private school)
My school has the strictest dress code EVER. Even if your pants are just a little bit too tight, you get in trouble. Luckily, this hasn't happened to me. - FluffyBanana
My high school special ed teacher makes up incredibly dumb rules. In my middle school there was a Disney's Hercules classic storybook in the classroom and I was allowed to read it and I watched Disney's Hercules in class in 7th grade, but my high school special ed teacher wouldn't even allow me to say the word "Disney", let alone express my love for Disney's Hercules.
Yes. It's true teachers bluffer too much. Like that time when kids are loud she put check marks... Seriously a check mark.
So many rules in middle school and strict and high school is much better. - Bikerninja1997
Yes, it shows how the whole system is maturing up. - styLIShT
True. People (usually) start to end up maturing either in late middle school or high school. The horrible years are 5th, 6th, and 7th, maybe a bit of 8th
(It honestly depends on the kids there, and the school itself)
My middle school has this. - Minecraftcrazy530
I wouldn't say Better teachers. In high school, YOU get the ability to adapt to bad teachers. That is the difference - styLIShT
Not true. I had 1 mean teacher in high school.
I had no mean Teachers in High School - Bikerninja1997
In elementary shool, everyone had such little freedom. We were stoked to go to middle school, but then I was disappointed. We’re kind of “babied” and not treated like we deserve… whatsoever. Highschool, however, you can do so much more than sit in an assigned class. You have th ability to choose classes (in some cases) and lunch is more layed back!
Only for Juniors and Seniors if you had good grades and good behavior.
NO more anxiety attacks in the cafeteria
WHAT?! In that case, I already love high school! - BlueTopazIceVanilla
On halleleujah! I can't wait!
I'm in middle school, and this sounds like what I need. No one actually pays attention to the assemblies in my school, and this would get our intrest.
My HS censors everything
YES! H is for homework, aka HELL! - MChkflaguard_Yt
In middle school gives you way to much homework. in high school is better. - Bikerninja1997
Freshmen sophomore junior and senior
College? University? - Limeyy
What about college
College is optional. You can also give to trade school or get a job that doesn't require a college degree - Ihateschool
That's not a good thing
That doesn't mean people are more mature though. - PianoQueen
But is everyone mature? That would be a no. - styLIShT
My high school had those
In HS we can go without having to go through the hassle of pulling out you agenda or pass
4 more years of Hell then bye see ya never
And then college...
4 YEARS NO CALLS
AND NOW you're LOOKING PRETTY IN A HOTEL FLOOR
AND I I I I I
NO I I I I I
For a second I thought you meant periods as in blood in the toilet kind of periods. I was confused because I thought that more people in high school got periods. I just realized that you meant classes. Kyle mistake
In middle school is 8 periods and high school you get 5 periods and its longer. - Bikerninja1997
My high school calls them "blocks" not periods
We already get clubs,(I’m in elementary almost in middle school)but all we have is Girl Scouts, Orf,Chess, and other RETIREMENT HOME activities.
Swearing is not allowed in my school. - Ihateschool
Yay! - Limeyy
Depends on the school. In fact a lot of things on this list depend on that - JustAnAccount
At my school we always eat outside.
How is that exclusively beneficial to high school? Maybe I'm not just familiar with the American system... - styLIShT
6 7 and 8 grade do that at my school
yeah - Bikerninja1997
Not in special ed
I'm in special ed and we get the same work as the mainstream kids. (At least my class) - Ihateschool
Please tell me there is better more mature kids
We don't have this and I'm a senior. Whatever bow to me my subjects. (Joke) - Ihateschool
The seniors get to skip class for a day, go to a talent show, enjoy a BBQ, and then go home afterwards!
