Top 10 Most Stressful Things About Highschool

High school can be pretty stressful and here's the most stressful stuff.

The Top Ten

1 Homework Homework

It's as if teachers think their subject is the only subject we learn at school. OF COURSE IT'S NOT! We have to juggle homework and assignments, so when we rock up to class the next day we have a valid excuse of 'I was doing my other assignment' but still get told off for doing something that is based on our grades instead of doing an activity that the teacher forgets about us doing less than a week later!

Impossible to catch up with, and before you know it you have more of it. It's a nightmare overall. - BoredJeff02

Homework honestly isn't that bad at my school because we have like half the class to work on it plus a 45 minute study hall to work on it and I don't have the same classes everyday. - Randomator

Not stressful because I song do mine. LMAO - AlphaQ

2 Bullies Bullies

I never had bullying problems in my life, and I've never even witnessed bullying (maybe once). Just teasing. I have a very ironic/sarcastic sense of humor though so it's a bit hard to get to me - Phillip873

Something happened with someone this year so far, so I am not letting him bully me anymore, but when he did bully me, not in high school but in seventh it was stressful for middle school. - AddictedToSilentScream

People in high school have been incredibly nice from my experience, this isn't general throughout all high schools.

Well high schools vary not every high school has nice people like yours. - BoredJeff02

I rarely get bullied. I'm one of the popular kids in my school and if I ever got bullied it'll be because I'm short and skinny but it stopped after 2016. - AlphaQ

3 Group Projects

Hate working with others. There are lazy people who only do the fun parts and the bossy people. Also I'm shy and more of a solo worker so yeah. Only work in groups if its with friends - Lunala

I am not a social person so I HATE this! Either I have to do everything or everyone argues and get nothing done. I've had very bad group experiences - Randomator

I always get stuck with all the work in Anatomy, cause my group is usually full of people who don't pay attention in class. - Elric-san

I'm not really that social so I hate things like this

5 Drama

The kids in my new school are already making me stay away. The cops were called last week because some boy got mad and threw a chair at a FEMALE ADULT. These kids already give me anxiety, that's why I eat lunch upstairs besides a door. I sit on the floor with my music and I draw. - KianaLexi

Self explanatory really. But even trying to avoid it can be stressful. Peer pressure is the worst - Randomator

Or trying to stay out of it can pack its own challenges, - AddictedToSilentScream

I don't have drama on my highschool, I'm not american, hopefully. - Loosername

Like Homework this can be very stressful. - BoredJeff02

7 Lectures

They will most likely drive you crazy in one way or another. - BoredJeff02

I have this teacher that gives 40 minute lectures and expects us to remember them... so stressful. - AddictedToSilentScream

Tip:Read the godd*mn book the first weeks, next one resume it, and then do the exam. - Loosername

8 Cliques

There's like 2 cliques at school. I made them up. There's one for the ghetto kids which is 99% of the kids there and there's another clique called "Leave me alone" I am the only member. - KianaLexi

I had no problem with school work or anything, but being an outcast was extremely stressful, I never fit in

Cliques suck. - naFrovivuS

How would this suck? - EliHbk

9 Assessments

The fact you're required to do both and need Istep to Graduate can be somewhat stressful. - BoredJeff02

10 Tests/Quizzes

Especially considering how much it affects your grade. - BoredJeff02

Lets get rid of tests and quizzes for our good grades

I have failed so many that I have a F and D... stressful is studying for them. - AddictedToSilentScream

The Contenders

11 Math

Pretty easy, algebra confuses you at the start, but it is not so hard, even less using potencies and surreal numbers. - Loosername

Depends on what class and what you're doing. Sometimes it's easy - Randomator

I have good grades in math but it could get hard, very hard. - PeeledBanana

Actually, for once math isn't that hard for me. I'm in finance and budget saving. - KianaLexi

They aren't that bad honestly, you literally do nothing for 30 minutes. - AddictedToSilentScream

I hate detention so much.

14 Trying to Catch Up on Classes

If you miss even a single day you'll be lucky to make anything above a 95 - 2storm

No explanation really needed to be honest. - BoredJeff02

I voted for grades but this too - donniedarko

If you miss a day it Sucks - Randomator

15 Being Around People You Hate

My life. I hate everyone there. - KianaLexi

This should be #1. When I was in high school, I would constantly freak out during semester finals. - railfan99

Yeah I agree - Randomator

18 Essays
19 Scheduling

My school has A and B days which kinda sucks because one of my days is easy and the other is pure torture with Economics, AP Geometry, Biology, and AP English - Randomator

20 How Popular You Are

I try to ignore it. I'm not popular by a long shot but I really don't mind not having all the attention. - Randomator

I was never the popular girl. I was always the quiet, ugly, sensitive cry baby, nerdy girl. - KianaLexi

That goes with middle school - BoyGenius234
