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

For a long time I thought I had a horrible time in HS. I had a really nice camera in HS and took a lot of pics. At the time they were slides and in my moms attic for 35 years. One day I found them and my scanner will do slides. Most of them were my friends in the smoking area (ya we had one). Now that I look back at it, I had a great times with my friends.

It doesn't get any better than this. At the beginning of high school, you will start to find out who are your true friends. While the answer may surprise you, its always great to have buddies.

I didn't have ANY in my 1st-5th grade life.
I gained some in 6th and 7th.
Gained LOTS in 8th.
Now most of the friends betrayed me over a YOUTUBER, thankfully, I have gained a few more.

Literally one of the only things I look foward to about my day is seeing my friends! Just being surrounded (for the 99.9% of it) with the people I love.

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.

Wheres Rebecca Black when ya need her?

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.

We're going to the Kennedy space center for our science field trip! Yeah!

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.

If you are lucky enough to have that girl or boy, it becomes so easy and relaxing. You know that person is somewhere in that building and that you could talk anytime.

High school romances are so overrated, why. There are a lot better things at school than all those cringeworthy dates and relationships.

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.

Sneaking up to the catwalk in drama club with the prettiest girl in school will always be a treasured memory.

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).

Whether its your prom or homecoming, school dances are very exciting, especially if you go with the partner of your choice.

7 Lunch Enhancements

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.

In my middle school, the dinner was mush and the only drink was water...

In my High School, the dinners are the best and we get awesome drinks.

My school's cafe is awesome, we have well cooked food, 20 kinds of Ice Cream, Lots of drinks and candy, and so much more.

The lunches at my elementary school were gross.
The lunches at my middle school were OK.
The lunches at my high school were DELICIOUS!

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)

Who added this on the list?

My teachers have a nice ass.

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!

I'm afraid that I might get hurt in an experiment. Well, only if there is chemicals.

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.

By far the awesomest thing about anything ever in the world. Ever.

12 Pretty Girls

This is something every boy looks forward to!

Oh ya a bunch of them!

13 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.

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.

But not the student mind.

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...

I like the thing

17 No Adult Responsibilities
18 Music Classes

I am 13 and in the school choir.

Music is life

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.

Leaving high school

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.

There are uniforms in high school.

22 Girls Have Boobs

This is a plus

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.
