Top 10 Worst Things About Middle School

The Top Ten
1 Homework

I maybe very smart and like learning and school, but ironically, homework is possibly the worst thing in not only school, but the WORLD! ALL I want to do after school is play my computer or go to sleep, but then I have to do some gosh darn aggravating "math pages" or homework on the computer that isn't close to fun. I've actually heard that students in countries that have LESS homework do BETTER than kids with more homework. If everyone hates homework, then why do teachers give it ALMOST EVERY DAY?! GOSH!

2 Monday Mornings

I think Mondays are pretty cool. First period is self study so I usually get to go to the library which is pretty good to have besides all the noise as a place have some quiet. And I have always thought of libraries as heaven because they can keep a bunch of people quiet so I guess Mondays are my good days

Actually, I think Tuesday's are worse. At least you're in a good mood from the weekend and you feel refreshed and you can have a productive day. Tuesday's you are grumpy from Monday and the weekend is miles away. BOO! But I still dislike Mondays

3 Relationship Drama

Yeah. By sixth grade I was on my first girlfriend that I began dating at the end of the previous year. Her name was Sarah. Within about six months of the new school year, she decided to break up with me, even though I still liked her. She started going out with this boy, Matt, who was one of my friends, who I now despise for "stealing" my girlfriend!
Well... apparently Matt's history, because I heard one of her "besties" gossiping about how Sarah had had her first kiss with this boy name Jeremy (who I also hate) at the dance.

4 Cafeteria Food

In elementary school they used to make you eat it, but now in middle school they don't care. I know because one day I had a fasting for my church and they didn't bat an eye.

This vote is just for the comment:

The teachers say school lunch has a lot of variety. I say that's true, I've counted at least 3/4 of the periodic table.

To this day I still have no idea what is in our school's salsberry steak. I swear a found a little bone in mine once. This is why I always bring my own lunch.

5 Everyone Turns Into a Jerk

Ain't that the truth? I experienced it before. How I did is that a guy who thought was my best friend grade betrayed me in middle school. Since then, I've always hated him.

The elementary school years were good but the grade I didn't like most was 4th grade though. Every other grade though was good for me but 5th grade was the ultimately the best, second being kindergarten. Then 6th grade came. F#! K 6th grade. The people worse than of seventh grade. Then 7th grade came, the 8th graders were bad but better. I am going to 8th grade this year and I feel like 8th grade will be a terrible year for me. I just can't wait to get out of middle school and the #1 reason are the 13 / 14 year olds who try to fit in with the misbehaving teens and play trash video games like Roblox or watch TikTok so much and keep making LGBT jokes. Just stop ‚úč

6 No More Recess

My school has recess but you need 2 "school dollars" and you only get 5-10 minutes of it instead of 30.

Good thing Middle Schools in England and Wales are primary schools they have playtime.

I was sad that there was not any Recess, I always had to miss Recess in 1st-5th grade because of how much I was bullied.

7 Hot Teachers You Couldn't Have

Oh yeah? That hot teacher is MY MUM and I have to deal with every boy liking her and telling ME how hot my mum is. Plain embarrassing. Oh, and whoever has a crush on a teacher is just creepy

Thank you whoever wrote this! I had a crush on my teacher!

8 Boring Classes

I hate having to be in classes for over an hour doing nothing but taking notes (Aka doodling) and listening to the teacher drone on and on about useless things.

In online classes, I turned off the camera so that everyone can't see me drooling...

Poetry is the most useless class to exist.

9 Too Many Projects

3 Projects in less than a week, every week, is killing me.

I have a class where all we do is projects!

10 Immature Classmates

I'm trying to eat lunch and all of a sudden across the room at least 20 people go; "OOH'. I don't care if Brad like Jenna or Stacy is dating whoever, let's just eat! It's even worse when no one is listening to the teacher like let him/her do his/her job!

This see should be at least #3! There's always got be this group of idiots making repetitive jokes and snorting laughs. Then somebody always spits in the laugh.

This happens to me every single day! Half of the class repeats the same jokes over and over non-stop while I am the one actually trying to get work done!

The Contenders
11 Stress

I miss a week of school because I went to florida and I have a lot of missing assignments that came out of no were.

Yes when get behind and you have so many missing assignments or when you did terrible on a test

Bro I'm an eighth grader and we have to do PRE SAT like what the truck

12 Suddenly Everything You Do Matters

If I miss ONE homework assignment, 5 points are deducted from the homework grade and can affect your overall grade as well as getting in trouble by your parents. Same with tests and projects. I hate this stress.

Miss one assignment = Automatic C

Get 100% on the most critical test of the year = Grade goes up 0.1%


What does a stupid letter written on a dead tree do to me? Nothing

13 The Teachers are Strict

My science teacher's on crack. She yells at students too much and yet she still has vocal chords

Okay, story time. I was in 2nd grade at the time and I HATED my teacher. Her name was Mrs. Reynolds. Yes. Yes she was married. She was fired for alcohol addiction and child abuse :)

These teachers yell at us all the time for exact reason.

14 Bullies

Well, I try to stand up for the victims, but they ignore me. So here's my story, in 5th grade, I had a doll named Fufu(I had it for 7 years).But this popular girl (her name is Amanda) with other popular girls ripped Fufu's arm. I tried to attach it but she threw it into the sewers. My friend, Penny told Amanda how much it to me. But Amanda called Penny a "pathetic little crap" and spread all the gossips to EVERY GIRL that's cool (even to the "hot boys"). Luckily, she moved in 6th grade. Literally every girl gave her gifts and good-bye letters. I'm happy Penny isn't bullied anymore. But, she is a loner which is why I hang out with her. That Amanda girl needs to pay when I see her again.

15 Crazy Teachers

My 7th grade math teacher has pink stuffed animals everywhere in her room, it's creepy. (I find her dull and she teaches things ten times harder than how they really are, but that's not the point). Seriously she has these Pink Panthers in the back of her room and they seem depressed based on how they're arranged, plus I think her pink Minnie Mouse stuffed animal is out to get me. Though if someone accidentally touches one of them then I heard that she will get insanely mad. Like yeesh lady just don't have your creepy pink stuffed animals in your room then.
Ms. Anonymous.

16 Cursing and Swearing

This happens a lot in my school, most of the time, the staff isn't near the people who do it, allowing them to easily get away with it. My friends swear too in 7th grade. One of them yell out a cuss word every once in a while (even when the staff is around; I tell him to not cuss when the staff is nearby but he just responds that he doesn't care by saying "I don't give a (not saying).")

EXACTLY! I don't understand why everyone is cursing in a middle-aged school stage. Heck, high school stage shouldn't have cursing as well.

17 Math

I've always been a math wiz, but I just do not like my math teacher (the one with the pink stuffed animals in her room) she makes everything ten times harder and she talks so much and so fast in her slow voice that's it's hard to keep up. Well then again most of my grade and most of her past students don't like her so I'm not alone.

Most if the stuff I learn in math is just complete bull crap because I'll probably never use in life.

Algebra is a stupid and pointless class that they force you to take in middle and high school.

18 Stupid People

Omg. Yes. Why is this not higher on the list? Every girl wears shorts that are super short, or tight ripped jeans, and all the boys are the absolute worst. Even the smart ones are stupid. Nobody cares about each other's feelings. Nobody pays attention in class, and nobody gives any effort to pass. It makes me so angry because I'm over here working my butt off and I look over and they are just circling random answers and doing random crap instead of their work. AND THE GIGGLING JUST STOP It's SO ANNOYING IN MATH CLASS!

19 Language Arts

My language arts teacher has bad English. She also praises the girls (me the most) more than the guys. She spends most of the time giving out minor referrals to the boys, and when she's not doing so I pretty much don't understand the lessons

One time in 7th grade Mrs Jensen asked "Kelly Bulanek are you having your period? Seriously are you on your period or not?

Language arts is the most boring... and that's probably why I have the worst grade in it.

20 Lockers

They suck a lot. Our lockers in my school are half the size of a regular locker and I can't even fit my backpack in there. I'm stuck bringing my backpack in my classroom! What's worse is sometimes your neighbors takes ALL the space!

The lockers at my school are about 1 inch wide and they SUCK! Everyone's always getting in the way and accidentally hitting each other with lockers! It sucks.

In middle school, the first year (6th Grade) we had to either share lockers with another person or get half of the size locker we'd get in upper grades.Both options sucked.

21 Science

So what about the core, huh? It's not our problem to discover what's inside the Earth? It's not like we like to touch it or anything

Science sucks! because
1) The teacher do not know about science
2) Always Test even at the first day at school

22 Favoritism Among Teachers

Dumb cheerleaders.. they gain the teacher's friendship and bam, favoristism. One year I got sent to the counselor's office for too short shorts (which mine weren't even that short and they were like, my longest pair) and another girl had REALLY short shorts and my teacher turned a blind eye. Yes, she was one of the poular girls. THEY'RE EVERYWHERE

AHH YES! This is so True! And it gets super annoying sometimes like when the teacher gives everyone a super awfull assignment and tells the kid he can just sit there and read

23 Social Studies

Literally in 6th and 7th grade I loved history and had the best teacher. I knew everything thing about politics, wars, commandments, etc. but now I hate it with passion. My history teacher now doesn't even teach us, she hardly even talks to us she just writes it on the board and tells us to get to work like she doesn't even deserve to be called a teachers if she doesn't teach

Seriously though, we have to cram a bunch of random information and somehow manage to retain it till a test and then forget it. We only have unit tests and interims for this subject, so I'm grateful that I don't need to memorize a bunch of information until the end of the year. The worst part is that honors social studies SUCKS SO MUCH. It's even more boring than normal social studies. The reason I know this is because I was in a normal class for the first semester, then I got tested for GT and got accepted, landing me in honors social studies this semester. I can't even tell you how lucky people in normal social studies are because at least they don't get countless projects.

24 Strict Dress Codes

I had to wear uniforms in my middle school. Only black or white shirts with black, khaki, or navy blue bottoms. Even the jackets and sweaters had to be of uniform colors.

I'm sorry that you have to deal with dress codes (my school doesn't have a dress code other than you can't wear a hoodie inside the building).

If you don't have a dress code then you are lucky.

25 All The Girls Attack You

All the popular girls are always thinking that they are better then you. Also they always talk about your butt and how small it is or how stupid you are. What they don't relize that they are exactly the same and that they make me strong not them.

Lol I was in the hallway and a boy told me I was mean and I said "no, just honest." And so we started being honest and he looked me up and down and said "you have a small butt" and I was so offended and needless to say that afternoon I was one of those girls.

Personally, I am a girl and can admit that I may or may not have done this myself...
