Top 10 Most Stressful Things About HighschoolHigh school can be pretty stressful and here's the most stressful stuff.
The Top Ten
I literally forgot to bring home my homework one day, and the other was so ridiculous. The worst problem is that it's the fault of the SCHOOL! The questions are vague and badly written, which just servers to increase stress; even the para who tries to help me understand questions like that is no help. And one day the stress was so bad, I forgot my GLASSES AND MY PEN. 6 hours of school feels like 18 hours, and I just wanna conk out in my bed when I get home... and this is where homework gets really involved. It makes me unable to do that. It has been proven over and over again that homework is completely useless and just makes children MORE stressed! And we have to use a Chromebook -- which doesn't have a capslock button -- so now I never use it on my actual computer, because I mentioned earlier that 6 hours feels like 18 hours, so it wears on you! And homework takes away the free time you have to get that stress off, and god forbid you FORGET it like I did!
In Ireland, in secondary school, every three years you would have a really important exam. These exams were called the state exams and the last lot of exams you do are called the leaving certificate and it basically tells you whether you can go to college or not. Try having a ton of homework to do and then studying for that and deciding on your future too. Not fun. - tinytootsierolls
What is the point of this it just makes us more stressed
if you can't teach us in the 7 hours you have us give us better teachers - willow

I never had to give presentations in school thankfully. We did presentations in groups and I was a little introvert that never wanted to talk so somebody more outgoing would do it. They'd nominate themselves from the start anyway. In college however, all presentations were individual and it was scary at first but you get used to it eventually. I think it's the work that you have to put into it is the nerve wrecking part in case you didn't put in enough or you overdid it. - tinytootsierolls
At this school I went to, they had you do this project in 7th and 8th grade and then present it in front of a 300+ audience at a college. Two most terrifying ten minutes of my life. They had professors attend these things and stuff. They gave everyone feedback cards to give you feedback on your presentation/project. It was not all positive.
I hate going up in front of the class and presenting stuff that nobody cared about. It was nerve-racking for me and boring for everyone else. - Aleca
I had to present some before - trains4514 Comments

But drama class/club is so much fun! - HelloUniverse
Yeah I saw some girls cause drama and stuff - trains45
I loved drama in school. The people kissing in the corner, the students backtalking the teachers and then storming out. It was so funny to watch, especially if you weren't in the mood for any particular classes. - tinytootsierolls
Teachers used to throw chairs at students in my school (or so it was said) also we had a teacher spank a student in front of the 6th grade math class (though it was her kid so it was ok, and it wasn't severe)7 Comments
I had to right a quiz every friday in math of grade 12, I never got to see my mark after, so I never knew if I got 100% 90% 80% etc - trains45

Grades can be your homework. Grades make you go to a university. Grades are your life for 19 years.
And they start to matter too
Grades are just a number. And it won't matter once you start your ACTUAL life and hold a full-time job. People who realize this early are the ones that do best in the real world, not the academic world. - 4Noobs
This should be 1st. - OrangeRin10 Comments
Why complain about this? You never have to do it. - KeyboardHero
Everyone expects you to go and dress up nice but what if you don't want to?
It’s where all your friends become a-holes for one night
And that...is how I wasted my first kiss and lost my first love.
God. Dammit. Highschool.
I don't see the actual purpose of cliques. These are just a tool to erect social comfort zones. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Most Irish schools are super clicky. Especially if the school is located up the countryside or in a local area because then, if you aren't a farmer or you don't play sports, you're instantly exlcuded - tinytootsierolls

Yeah I agree - Randomator
There are mean people in my classes. One of them was a girl who put on spray tan when she's actually ugly and gets bad grades. She also made me feel very uncomfortable. When I got higher than her in a biology quiz, she was furious. She said:" No more ASIANS! " And there's this rude guy in my geography class who would make fun of Asians, and he called me Indonesian behind my back and all his friends were laughing at me. He also said that nobody liked China and therefore China should be dead. I told him off and then he said:"There you are, YOU TROUBLEMAKER! " But he was the actual troublemaker, not me. He even wanted me to get into trouble but he still got into trouble. He's a popular boy, that's why! - Angel278
How is being popular in school going to benefit you in the real world? - 3DG20
Highschool is a popularity contest
I was only popular because my last name rhymed with 'Geese.' It wasn't the type of popularity you would want.
In fact, it was the type of popularity that got me bullied and jumped by randoms in high school. I didn't even have to know anybody just to get bullied by people that heard rumors about me. - 4Noobs
I thought typing 2-3 page essays in high school was tough enough, but then IN COLLEGE I heard the WORST thing regarding essays that a teacher had ever said to me: "The essay have to be AT LEAST 10 PAGES LONG".
HELP ME NOW! :(

Favoritism benefits me as I'm a favorite among most of my teachers but to those who are constantly being yelled at for little things because they're not a teacher's favorites, it's stupid. I'm a very considerate person and I want everyone treated equally. - Kwaysar

I don't find them stressful I find them to be extremely tedious...
This ones are annoying
Lmao if the girls tried to bully me I'd bully them straight back especially with their humongous ego and secret insecurity that I can see ever so clearly. Especially when your 6'4 and the smartest in your school.
Especially the popular girls, make me feel self conscious because they go around in massive groups looking people up and down while they are wearing Gucci or all branded stuff.I have been bullied by them before and so have my friends.
I had that it far from my gym class in grade 11, and my english class in grade 12 - trains45
I just didn’t use my locker - Aleca
Yeah what were dumb fat slutty teachers thinking - ihatetrump

I have had a mean substitute teacher, that always got mad at us for stupid reasons and stuff - trains45
My bio teacher bullies me
Why is this all the way at the bottom? Should be higher.
It is very hard to find decent friends in a high school. Most people in mine either backstabbed me, stopped communicating with me, moved or just became the bully's best friend. - 4Noobs
Its really about which friends you can trust and which ones are awful people. - GREYDAD
What? Friends are one of the few good things about school, well, unless you don't have them which is sad. If you don't have friends, don't worry, you'll get them, just be a little more social and try to talk to or hang out with people. - PeeledBanana
True friends are One of the best things about high school. If they backstab you or peer pressure you that's a different story - Randomator1 Comment
My high school only has a foreign language class and Spanish class not a French class. So I can't see why this would be stressful.

Bioloy isn't that stressful to be honest Chemistry on the other hand is a bitch to complete.
