Top Ten Reasons Why People Hate Middle SchoolLina1028
The Top Ten
So in fifth grade, we only had like one teacher that barely gave homework. It's sixth grade and you have 2 teachers plus the stupid Spanish teacher. On the first day of school, the teacher of English gave a bookshelf full of homework. And heres the thing the important homework, she never checks, but the unimportant she does. Everyone feels like they have no life because she assigns like a bookshelf everyday plus the annoying projects.
Do the research! I didn't believe it at first, but I was given a (ironically) a homework assignment to debate whether or not homework was truly beneficial, and there is staggering amounts of evidence that says there is too much homework in school these days, and that there are few to none benefits at all. - keycha1n
Research? Homework is surely more beneficial than social networks which kids find as an alternative to outdoor sports these days. - yatharthb
Because of this, I end up either going to bed late, miss my shows, don't have free time, or not finishing it and get a bad grade. I just hate it!
I agree! I went to a bilingual school as an elementary schooler, so I had two teachers who didn’t give too much homework, and back then I was a smart kid and I would do it. Now we have seven teachers, and the only class you don’t get homework from everyday is PE. It puts too much pressure on us and it’s hard to complete 2-3 hours of pointless assignments on our time away from school. Not to mention, if you get full credit on something, your grade goes up by like one percent and if you fail it, you drop at least one letter grade! Thankfully I’m in 8th grade and I won’t have to deal with this in about 8 months. A lot of people have told me that high school is better, and the one I’m trying to go to is one of the best in my country so I hope that’s true.V 8 Comments
I can't say that it was necessarily bad in the beginning, since everyone in sixth grade and the first half of seventh grade didn't seem to really be bothered by me. In a way, I feel like this made everything worse, since I wasn't expecting everyone in my world to wake up one morning and decide, "Well, since I'm too pathetic to handle my own hormones, I think I'm just going to make someone who isn't going through my same problem miserable for no reason at all". Not to say that my life was one hundred percent perfect before they decided to gang up on me. I was already having trouble with my family, but I guess whatever problems I had didn't seem to matter whatsoever. I don't even think I had any friends during that time, since anyone who was considered a 'friend' seemed to always want to take everything out on me, and then blame me for our dysfunctional relationship. I am just so glad that all of this is over now. To those of you eighth graders who are experiencing a similar ...more
Are the middle school students really THAT mean? I just graduated elementary and currently on summer break, so I don't know what goes on in middle school. Some people (like my brother) said that it's gonna be the worst years of my life, but some people say that they enjoyed it, and that just confuses me. I guess I'll have to go see for myself when summer break ends.
Get ready for a living hell. Don't sit I the back of the bus, trust me. - Juan-Luis
Not even kidding, there is one girl in my grade and she used to be my friend and now she thinks shes better than everyone else and shes like-"I'm awesome you suck, I'm cute your ugly, I'm popular your stupid" NO ONE CARES JUST BE QUIET
Me: trying not to be infected by Jerkisis.
Many Others: Infected byt Jerkisis
Adults: All teenagers are mean
Me: I hate stereotypes.
The food is actually a lot better than it was in elementary school. Plus there's a snack bar and desserts, and a variety of drinks! Plus it's cheap, how could you go wrong?
Umm, are lunch tastes awesome. It's basically like a food court. And that means pizza everyday!
Thank the lord we don't live in the movie high schools, be grateful. - DapperPickle

In elementary school no one cared if you got a bad grade, and the teacher would actually help you. Now in middle school if you get anything lower than a B, people think you're a retard. Teachers don't help and just let you fail, plus I think the only reason for the honor roll is to embarrass kids, it makes you feel dumb and grades aren't even anything to show how smart you are! So stop thinking I'm an idiot because I got a C and help me!
Elementry School- bad score on a test? No problem you will just take the same damn test next week but in a different variation eitgir way it was going to be easy
Middle School- bad test score? Screw life it is already over
I've never worried about grades much ever.. all we discussed in conferences was my behavior and a short 'oh yeah they're getting good grades'. Now, I know what it's like to be stressed..
Ikr its frigging annoyingV 1 Comment
It's so annoying. I had three best friends. All of them (even though we were so close and I showed loyalty) they are left me. Betrayed me. They left me to become a social outcast. I mean, how can you just lose interest in a friendship? They just left me,never played or talked to me at school. I never even fought with them. Here's a funny thing. I had some side friends but all of them had best friends that they much rather hang out with. I became friends with a new girl and she was clingy, which I like. That means she wanted extremely for me to be her friend. But my ex best friend (who has been my friend since kindergarten) asked my new friend to come with her and sit with her at lunch. I got so pissed when my new friend started talking and hanging out with my ex friend and left me to be alone. Everyone is just the same, right? Or at least in my class.
When I started school I had this fantastic friend and we did everything together. Then in 2 grade he just suddenly turned into a complete jerk because I started to learn more. He became friends with the bullies till the end of 4th grade. That's when I met 2 people I never thought I could be friends with. One was a loner and the other a boy who only started school last year. We had a great time. Always hanging out and having fun. Till 5th grade where my ex-friend, became friends with my friends, I have him a chance to be in our group. But after a few months he kept harassing me and making my life a joke
I was BFFs with a girl in 4th grade. And then LEFT ME! I mean, WHAT KIND OF PERSON DOES THAT?! She went for some bossy girl instead. And plus, she BULLIES ME! She and her "friend" give me the EVIL EYE during class. And my ex-BFF does not want me to make new friends. If she looks at me talking to a new girl, she gets jealous and tells the new girl lies about me. She treats me like dirt and I have NO friends now. I hope you are happy, Ex- friend! I HOPE YOU GET EXPELLED!
In 6th grade I made a huge group of friends who were always there for me, but out of nowhere left me in 7th grade because I wasn't "cool" enough. 8th grade just got worse, as everyone in my grade just harassed me, and I started to act in ways I wish I didn't. I even attempted suicide one night. Luckily, I began talking with the 7th graders, and they were a lot more welcoming.
I'll say, high school is somehow easier on me, academically, and socially. Never thought it'd be, but it is. - naFrovivuS
There are a lot of those at my school. There's this one teacher that I extremely hate because she very strict. One time I was hanging out with 2 other friends and she told us not to hang out with each other. I KNOW RIGHT! that's STUPIDO, another time we were singing the national anthem. On the second verse I decided to make up my own lyrics. Then straight after that the same teacher told us off for not singing and told us " ILL MAKE YOU SING IT EVERYDAY", Finally my friend felt sick and that same teacher won't let her out of school, even though she nearly fainted
Some teachers are racist I put this to god, some teachers be racist. Some of them hate kids too
My history teacher started out strict but every day he starts turning less strict and less strict. - cosmo
My social studies teacher will ask you to go get a tardy pass if you’re half a second late.V 5 Comments
Thanks a lot dumb middle school!
Not true. I have fifteen minutes between second and third period, and a whole hour for lunch between fourth and fifth. I'm in eighth grade and I find it perfectly suitable.
Bah! You get used to it so don't listen to the other people who put comments for this
Its for the small kids.V 14 Comments
I didn't get any of my previous friends in my third-grade class, so I made friends with three other girls. We were really good friends, but in fourth-grade I learned the truth; the second they weren't in the same class as me, they all ditched me for their own friends. They didn't try to keep in touch with me, or talk to me in recess or gym (my school puts three/two classes in the same grade together), and every time I saw them in Chorus or Orchestra, only one of them would actually talk to me and be my partner. One moved away, but when she came back, she didn't even look at me, let alone talk to me. The truth is, I was only their friend because their friends were in different classes. I mean, they were good friends, but they didn't ever so speak to me after third-grade, like they never knew me. I tried to talk to them, but they just said "Hi" like I was a complete stranger dressed like Dumbledore. Loosing friends is sad, but the bright side is that my old friend and a new friend were ...more
As a person who suffers from autism, I'm really worried about middle school next year and dealing with cliques. What if I miraculously make a friend, but then that friend ditches me for some group of socially well-liked students? I really doubt I'm ever going to be able to keep any friends until college, at least. - RockFashionista
The popular cliques are annoying. All they talk about is stupid stuff like what they are gonna eat for dinner on Sunday. - cosmo
I don't really know what Clique my friends and I are in, but possibly the Quiet kids since we're all always quiet in every one of our classes.V 13 Comments
My best friend suffered from extreme bullying last year. And it was all because she was standing up for her friend. Everyday I feel so bad for her. That she had to go through all of that is horrifying. But they left her alone and I'm helping her recover from her shaken up experience.
Wow.I'm going to start middle school soon.I better get prepared for this - MLPFan
Why isn't this # 1?!
Middle schoolers: Me smart, I am’t dumb
Me: Uhh... you sound a little weird.
Middle schoolers: he’s a weirdo we will never like him!
Me: Now I’m Infamous : Third life... great
Wait what does that mean
Actually I always have modified days every Wednsday and I'm in middle school - Milkshake
Why is this not at least in the 10th place!? Everyone I go to school with has the IQ of a peanut.
Like fr some people have anxiety and some teachers be forcing them to work with people they don't know, like people with social anxiety they can get too nervous with people they don't know
No, I don't wanna work with my ex, thank you. - Pegasister12
Yes there is this one girl in my class she sits in front of me and she has told all the other girls at my table (who used to be really nice) to be mean to me and I have to deal with this till who knows when
In my 7th grade history, I was working in a group of 4, consisting of a normal girl, a killjoy, and an emo d! ckwad. Mr. Killjoy resented everything I said, even asking simple questions like "What foods did they grow? " Emo D! ckwad refused to try and tolerate me, and out of nowhere said "Screw you" for no particular reason. Normal Girl just didn't do much, so I couldn't complain. - naFrovivuSV 1 Comment
In elementary school, being popular was way easier. All you had to do (at least in my school) was be yourself. There was this one girl who was a tomboy, but she was super super popular because of the fact that she did not hide her true colors. I was sort of popular-ish, because of my kind personality.
*wall of text incoming*
And then middle school. How come I JUST STARTED MIDDLE SCHOOL IN AUGUST and I am already seeing this? In my middle school, all you have to do is be pretty. No one cares if you act like a douche bag or not. I remember asking my friend how to be popular at my school, because she knows some of the popular kids, and she just said, "You have to be pretty, skinny, and curse a lot." She is literally the only nice popular kid at my school. All the popular kids are complete bullies, and they're not even funny. I am an OUTCAST this year just because I don't curse, and I'm not pretty or skinny. I'm nice, and that's really all that matters. Hell, my ...more - Absolite
I agree. There's this one really snobby (or as I like to call her, nobby) girl, who I used to have to sit next to in geography. And she was just like "I CAN'T SIT NEXT TO HIM". Luckily the teacher realised his mistake and changed the seating plan and now I sit next to my crush.
I'm not going against this, but not all the popular girls are TERRIBLE. I'll start with the bad. They gossip, exclude people, and just make people FEAR them, because they have a higher "status". But not all of them are bad. Two or three are actually my friends. Sort of.
True... My experience with these popular girls is a sad one. It’s funny how most of the “unpopular” ones would assumed that these girls will do better in the future. But unfortunately, most of them do not. They don’t take sex ed or life lessons seriously (from the privilege they were given) from the school programming(s) that they were in. Most of them end up getting pregnant and left by their baby daddies after high school, they become physically unattractive, or have no real friends at all.V 2 Comments
Lol, don't even need to explain it.
I hate it I cry everyday I have to go I just want to go home
No explanation needed.
They waste your time. You can prepare for exams other than doing projects. - Animefan12
In one of classes we never actually learned anything. The teacher just gave us instructions to follow for a different project every week.
In social studies I have this teacher that right after you have another with NO break time.
My English teacher gave us a reading project then gave us a seven part project on the book, then se tells us "i'm gonna give you guys a break" and then next week she gives us another project. It is so annoying like we have stuff to doV 1 Comment
They really do. Suddenly everything you do matters. If you aren't friends with the "popular" people, you're considered an outcast. And you talk to ONE boy and suddenly everyone thinks you like him. You have to be careful of your every move because your scared what someone else will think. Your basically LIVING for SOMEONE ELSE.
If I wore the same shirt that I did the week before, at least one person would say "oh my god you wore that shirt last week! " And I'm just like oh sorry I forgot that I hate an endless closet full of clothes...
It's so frustrating seeing people judge everyone for everything they do.
YES, jesus, its like they take the nice elements school kids, throw them in a hormone pit for 3 years, then take the survivors to high school so they can be straight up suicidal, and even though this is happening to everyone people still have time to fit in "Nice buck-teeth assh at"

They always try to take advantage of you as a friend, then backstab you. - ethanmeinster
No one said it to me but it felt like that
You finally start to understand the real world. Not everyone is who they seem to be. They can smile and laugh with you one day, and the next they're the one who started the awful rumor about you. I thought the world was a happy place before Middle School, but I obviously was wrong. The reality is honestly you can't trust anyone. The real world is an horrible place. Now you know what REALLY to expect in the future.
There just mean that's all
They all begin in middle school, and it was a frustrating time. - Turkeyasylum
Some disgusting kid stuck a USED pad on the mirror in the girls room. Everyone freaked out, it was nasty.
Good Lord! Sometimes I question if the bathroom in my middle school had ever been cleaned before! The least they could do is put in an air freshener.
There is always pee all over the floor in the girls bathrooms! It's a middle school, why isn't everyone potty trained yet?! - Popsicles
The bathrooms in my middle school were clean, but once when I was in 6th grade I saw a water fountain that had a pile of vomit COMPLETE WITH LARGE CHUNKS IN IT! EWW! >:P
(I actually don't remember what it really was. It may be diced fruit from the cafeteria, but I was told that it was vomit)
And now the teachers are pedophiles! in my pe class, the teacher always picks the promiscuous girl with short shorts etc
I find this a good thing
Drama is like a clingy friend. No matter how hard you try to run away, or shake it off, it ALWAYS finds a way to come back to you (LOL)
RIGHT! Its like fake relationships
Middle school relationships are full of drama, like seriously wait till high school yungins
It was hard to wake up every morning
OH. MY. GOD. My career teacher in 9th grade would treat a girl in my class better than everyone else in the entire school. She'd let her talk with friends during class, let her go on her phone, you name it. Would she let me do those things? NOPE! - railfan99
The whole 6th grade was at an assembly, and our principal asked, "How many of you have a phone? " And pretty much everyone raised their hand. Except me.
My parents don't get me a phone but suddenly EVERYONE has one?! I get made fun of cause I don't have instagram and snapchat and all the "in" things, it's so annoying. and our teacher when we are taking a math test on quadratic functions and square roots (where we get to use calculators) ASSUMES everyone has a phone and when I ask her if I can borrow her calculator she says "What about your phone? use that instead! " it makes me angry!
My teachers are downright rude to me. I hope their lives crash and they end up in a car accident.
Don't let go to the bathroom
Mine were Miss Dunham, Mrs. Neese, and Mr. Day
We had one trip, we got to walk downtown and see a movie. It was pretty fun, better than all the boring museums we went to in 5th grade. - Popsicles
I got trips in middle school. They were actually more fun.
Not true - Bikerninja1997
You walked to the gym, and have to change in front of 29 other people within 5 minutes minus the time it took you to walk there and then the people torment you, and if you are anything like me, you can't change in stalls, and the older class men called you, then you work out, stretch, run a mile, do some test play a game then get dressed again or for boys Thursday and Tuesday, put on swimming trunks and jump in the pool, or get an F. This class will lower your energy, self-esteem, and how much you care.
One of the reasons why I Hated Middle School or Secondary. There is no more playground/ Jungle Gym at the school (Never mind there is another park around the corner.)
And I can't stand it when friends stop playing with you and call you Childish or Baby. Bro, chill, I just like having a good time. What is wrong with that?
I feel your pain, dude. That is what happened to me.
We only get 4 minutes to get class to class, sometimes having to go to our lockers. I have 3 tardies, and if we had at least a 7 minute passing time, I would maybe have only one, (thanks Subsitute physical wellness teacher! )
I have one minute to get from class to class, and I deal just fine.
I learned nothing from middle school. Absolutely nothing. Except to hate it.
Learning is stupid. rather eat and lick moldy mucus, ahh, that's the life.
