Top 10 Things that Make High School Worse Than Middle School

If you think middle school is bad, wait until you get to high school. It's far worse. In multiple ways than one it's worse. If I missed a reason feel free to add it.
The Top Ten
1 More stress

When you're a teenager in high school, you'll go through so many stress that you don't know how to handle. They pile work or have very tight deadlines on projects so much that it makes every teenager almost never happy or energetic at school. Maybe this is why teenagers are so moody and never be happy.

Seriously! There's so much homework, and my school feels the need to make everything so complicated and I'm only a month into my freshman year! It sucks!

Stress in high school is ridiculous. From projects to tests to trying to keep your grades up to planning your future

2 High school's not about what you want to learn, it's about what the state wants you to learn

That's universal really, not in high school only. Is it not?

This is also middle and elementary school.

3 More drama

Middle school drama is smaller things and there's more of it vs high school drama which is slightly less abundant but it's over bigger things.

4 More frustrating

Yep and homework as well

Oh boy If you thought Middle school was frustrating then good luck with high school

5 Trying to keep your grades up is difficult and tedious

Going from middle to high school, I thought I was gonna be fine. I'm a horrible test taker and now tests are 40% of my grade!

I'm Asian and I tried SO HARD to get straight As to please my high expectations parents but it was tough!

It's annoying enough with regular classes. I can't imagine how stressful it would be in honors and APs.

6 The amount of peer pressure is increased in high school and is generally worse

I'm scared to share your opinion more in hight than middle school.

7 Exams that make you want to tear your hair out

I'm in Y6 right now and Secondary School- I'm from England- Looks real hard for kids like me with autism.

Middle school have HARD exams.
But hight school's is almost impossible.

8 Idiots everywhere
9 The school double downs on you about college

Teachers, us teens can decide what WE want to do. I know you have to support us which is great, but stop pushing us to do things that we might not even want to do.

"College is important! You have to focus on us and be good in order to get in! " *facepalms* I know people who used to have LOTS of bad grades get in.

"Do what we say because if you don't, you'll be in trouble for college! " *Rolls Eyes*

10 Hypocritical teachers that are annoying as hell

No phones in class! *gets on their phone 5 minutes later* or No food or drinks in class *gets out entire fast food meal*

I once do a fault on a exam I got the worst possible grade.

The Contenders
11 The SAT/ACT

If you are Asian Andy you don't get a perfect score on this, you are screwed for life

12 More homework

It depends on what hight school you are.

13 More Bullying

I had a bully who believed how he was the boss but I ignored him, then he tried to remove my life because I didn't respect him as god and then I realized how he is the BOSS.
Also I suffered trauma for few months because of bullying.

Well I'm in 8th grade, and this list is scaring me of what high school is bout to be like

14 Trying to pass required testing regardless if it's online or not

It's so stupid having standardized tests even in high school! It was already stressful enough in middle school. But it's already more stressful in high school due to harder coursework, extracurriculars, and other tests like SAT/ACT and AP tests. Luckily, I only had to do the standardized test one year and passed with zero studying when I did poorly most of the times in middle school when studying for hours a day.

Why do we have to take standardized tests?!

Ugh... don't even get me started

15 Grades actually matter

Middle school grades are basically meaningless outside of extra activities. High school grades stay with you forever

16 The fact that your parents lie about High School being better

Its true!. Parents are lie you.
And when you realize how the things works in hight school you want only to flee and give up.

This is why I haven't spoke to my parents in years.

17 Everyone cares about what you wear or do

Man. Many students there, are pretty manipulative and menacing as hell

18 Group projects that half the time no one does anything during the whole project

(Some of) my classmates are a bunch of small minded idiots!

19 Cornell notes

My history and biology teacher make the students take Cornell notes all of the time. Cornell notes are useless and don't even work

We didn't do this in high school, but we did this in middle school and it was dumb.

UGH I hate these. It's clunky and awkward like just let me take notes how I want to

20 Drugs are everywhere

Yep is real and extremely scary.

21 They don’t teach you anything that is useful in the real world
22 If you miss a day, you get hours of work to catch up on
23 Trying to get enough credits to graduate
24 The PSAT

I hate the PSAT. It's only worth it for the memes

25 Too different from dramas and movies
