Top Ten Best Things About High School

Is high school perfect? No. But there are many fantastic, thrilling things that you will enjoy.
The Top Ten
1 Friends

Ugh. It's so hard to find anyone remotely loyal, especially in elementary school. When I was in grades 1-5, I tried so hard to find friends, but no one stuck with me. (I'm not a sticky person in general.) I would meet someone nice, hang out with them for a few months, think that they were my best friend, and then they would leave me for "someone better." It was terrible. Parents say all you have to do is be nice and respectful, but that hadn't worked out so far. I'd tried so many things, even trying to change my personality. Finally, I gave up after everyone grouped up and became part of a clique; "off limits".
High school is better, though--it's way easier to make friends and there are so many people.

2 Friday

Not much to say here. No matter what happened at the beginning of the week, everything appears positive on Friday.

The 3 best things ever
1. Today its friday!
2. Wake up! It friday!
3. Tomorrow its friday!

Saturday is better because Friday there is still school.

3 Field Trips

They actually play a really essential part in your school life. Every now and then you get super stresses out and you have to have something to look foward to! What about that 2 day retreat up to point bonita?

If I go to the local public high school, I'll go to Disney World freshman year with the band!

I only had 1 actual Field Trip in middle school.
Hopefully we get to have more.

4 The Special Someone

I really do not care about romance, so this is not a good thing about high school to me. There are much better ways to spend your time then worrying about getting a boyfriend/girlfriend or spending all your time thinking about the person who you love. Anyway, you probably wouldn't stay in a relationship with anyone in high school for very long anyway, so it doesn't really matter much.

While some claim they really liked someone in middle school, high school is typically where you will find your first love. Will you end up marrying them. Probably not. But its nice to have someone like that next to you in school.

5 Student Clubs

Do you like table tennis? Or military history? Are you good at chess, or do you prefer photography? Clubs give you the opportunity to do more of the things you like when your in school.

I wish my school had a lot of clubs. My selection is VERY limited. My school is so poor and small we have to ask for help from other schools and tie sports with the next town over.

I joined the Scrabble Club at my school. I also plan on joining the math & science club next year, but first I must brush up my maths.

6 School Dances

Not to me...I refuse to go to them. Even if someone asked me to a dance, I still wouldn't go. I hate dancing, I can't dance anyway, and I don't care about romance or anything else that would go on at one of the school dances.

I'm going to high school in 2 years. Wow, I can't wait for this. School dances sound fun! The middle school I'm going to has dances, but they're not, like, date dances.

These are horrible! I used to do these in Middle School. Fortunately I have not seen any dances coming up in my highschool (and I hope they never will).

7 Lunch Enhancements

The lunches at my elementary/middle school are bot that bad. pretty sure high schooled lunch ladies serve and cook the food well, there could be sweets to eat after eating some lunch and goanimate schools serve healthier foods only. well, I don't need to eat healthier foods much to keep me healthy.

For many schools, elementary and middle schoolers have specific lunch requirements. But in high school, with increased servings, unlimited eating locations, and better drinks, the socializing period only gets better.

8 Freedoms and Breaks

Unlike elementary and middle school pupils, the upper school student is mostly independent, which is nirvana for kids who don't like getting babied around.

9 Hot Teachers

There's a song that goes: Ow got it bad! Got it bad! Got it bad!
I'm hot for teacher!

That's illegal. (Except if you are in college)

When you have a hot teacher you wouldn't focus on test because you stare at him/her too much

10 Science Experiments

For many, science is a favorite among subjects. A lot of that has to do with the wild experiments you will attempt throughout high school.

I do enjoy these. But when you're at college, you'll be able to do bigger ones with lasers and superconductors. And that's better.

They are awesome. I would replace all my subjects with science if I was allowed!

The Contenders
11 Marching Band

I'm going to 7th grade (currently on summer break) and I've been in a marching band before since I attended a summer music school and we get to do a marching band. It was so much fun! I can't wait to do it in high school!

Marching band is by far the best high school experience anyone can have. People who are not in marching band will never understand.

This and colorguard helped me create friends and helped me figure out who I am.

12 Sports

Best Thing Ever! I play competitive hockey and baseball and they help so much getting your head away from school and into doing something you love.

13 Pretty Girls

This is something every boy looks forward to!

14 Overall Maturation of the Student Body

Are you serious? This ruined my Girl Friend's LIFE. Imagine what it is like for Boys when you turn 15 and your first nasty red spots and you know that you will have to Shave like your Pa for the rest of your life.
Puberty should be DESTROYED. Then life would be 1000% better.

The annoying guy from middle school, the stuck-up athlete, those cliques that make your blood boil; all of them it seems have grown up a little. But beware of the popular girls, who will only exploit their diva wrath even more.

The only good thing about high school was its lack of teenyboppers.

15 Fun Activities
16 Football and Basketball Games

The two exhilarating sports are fun to watch, but even more enjoyable if you're the one wearing the uniform.

Not if you don't understand the first thing about football...

17 No Adult Responsibilities
18 Music Classes
19 Graduation

Sadly I still have 4 and a half years of dumb School left.

I can't wait to graduate High school next year in 2020.

20 Learning New Things
21 No Uniforms

Uniforms to me is a sign of maturity, teenage and entering of the most interesting part of life.

A sign of maturity is not following orders to wear a uniform.

My school requires uniforms, sadly.

22 Girls Have Boobs
23 Proms
24 Spares

I remember having a spare before lunch in my last quarter or grade 12 it was nice

25 Electives

Unless you get a bad teacher like I did last year when I was in 9th grade.
