Top 10 Reasons Why HIghschool is Stressful

Here's a list of reasons why High school is stressful, don't mistake it for my Most Stressful Things About Highschool list because while being similar in concept. They're different in terms of one being reason based, while the other is just general things about Highschool.

The Top Ten

1 It drains you daily

My life revolves around school, which is good. But, it stressful everyday waking up to have a really hard time in school just to come home and do even more schooling as in homework.

Yep just going to school for 8+ hours a day, then getting 2-3 hours of additional homework is enough to tire you out. Almost half your day is school or homework and that’s not even counting extracurricular activities like clubs, athletics, or having a job. - Randomator

I'm not prepared to go to high school!

Believe me, you ain't been through nothing until you hit college and get a job. Now THAT drains you daily. - Mcgillacuddy

2 You have to learn so many things that you probably won't use in your life

*Cough Cough* Geometric proofs - Randomator

Unless you want to be doctor, scientist, engineer, etc. You will not need at least half of what you learn in high school. I'm so glad in Graduated from Highschool in 2017, because I don't miss it whatsoever.

I don't see myself using algebra, geometry, or even History in my daily life after highschool.

I don’t see myself using trigonometry, history, geography or some math stuff in my life. - AlphaQ

3 People constantly annoy you and get on nerves

Everybody there. - 3DG20

My (boy) classmates in a nutshell - Lucy1402

Yeah it’s bound to happen. Literally anyone doing anything could annoy you - Randomator

It can be a teacher, a student, or even some other person of the staff. But everyone in highschool is bound to get on your nervs at some point.

4 You get so much homework, that it's difficult to catch up with classes

Throw in athletics and it can become a nightmare real quick. Trying to balance getting what you missed AND what you were assigned when you were there in class AND understanding all of that can be stressful - Randomator

The worst case of all is Math classes... like jesus Christ... I have so many garbage, to turn in for my Geometry class, but then more homework is assigned when I'm barely done with one thing.

I hate when teachers give you one thing and then out of nowhere assign something else on top of that. - Randomator

It especially sucks if you were absent for a day and need to catch up - TwilightKitsune

5 It determines what kind of jobs, you'll be able to have in life

Yep grades actually matter now. You can’t slack off too much or else you will be screwed - Randomator

No matter where you want to work, most places require at least a College or Highschool diploma. It determines what job you'll be able to get, just by how well you did or how awful you did. And that's sort of stressful in a way.

6 The amount of drama in highschool is endless

Legit. Only way it could be more true is if it mentioned the overturning amount of fake friends and the lovely plastic facades they wear daily.

And not to mention most of the drama, can either be false rumors or just made for the sake of it...

Breakups, friendships getting torn…GaH theses things happen. - AlphaQ

7 At times you must submit to cruel rules and misused authority
8 You never know who to trust in highschool

That’s why I barely trust anyone. - Randomator

There's lots of backstabbers in Highschool and you're not sure, who really is your friend after a while...

I do know who to trust though... No one. - 3DG20

9 Trying to figure out what you want to pursue in life

The thing that differs between high school and college is that college puts extra pressure on you to figure out what you want in life, and why? Because you don't have much longer until the day your career begins. - Mcgillacuddy

I agree because just thinking about the idea of knowing what specific career you want to have when your only a Sophomore is stressful in itself - Randomator

What if someone wants to become a physicist soon and still has a strong binding passion for physics that they love to take classes and is there really an extracurricular activity for that type of passion? - Kevinsidis

Wait till you get in college... - RustyNail

10 There's so much pressure in highschool

Not just peer pressure, but in general there's pressure to go to college, and pressure about what you want to pursue in life.

Pretty self explanatory - Randomator


The Contenders

11 SATs/ACTs
12 It's extremely frustrating

Especially with grades, the classes you take, and people you come across..


Like when you go from a 90% to a 45% because the teacher assigns stuff out of nowhere and makes it worth like 200 points - Randomator

13 You can get depression

Some classes make me feel dead inside. 😑'"

I often get too much depression because of this worthless place! - Lucy1402

14 Friends are more likely to betray you


15 Getting a girlfriend/boyfriend

I mean, if you ignore the peer pressure, you don't really need to get a boyfriend/girlfriend.
