The Top Ten Best Things About High School

1 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. - steve44

Some of the friends you make in highschool will be your friends for the rest of your life - Ajkloth

I got bullied a lot, home schooled for 2 years, and now I'm starting a different regular school. so hopefully I'll make some friends. p.s I'm 16 now.

Yep friends are but some may go behind your back and betray you and go be friends with people you hates so much

2 Friday

The 3 best things ever
1. Today its friday!
2. Wake up! It friday!
3. Tomorrow its friday!

Wheres Rebecca Black when ya need her?

Not much to say here. No matter what happened at the beginning of the week, everything appears positive on Friday. - steve44

Saturday is better because Friday there is still school. - Ihateschool

3 Field Trips

Fun field trips my school did last year:
5 star gymnastics place
Secret life of pets 2
The playground

Boring trips my school did last year:
New York Historical Society - Ihateschool

If I go to the local public high school, I'll go to Disney World freshman year with the band! - PianoQueen

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

My high school had field trips to NYC and Broadway every year.

4 Student Clubs

Clubs are a good way to meet other people and hang out with your friends after school without going to each others' houses. - KN

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. - steve44

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. - MChkflaguard_Yt

5 Hot Teachers

Who added this on the list?

I like turtles

When you have a hot teacher you wouldn't focus on test because you stare at him/her too much - RoseCandyMusic

My teachers have a nice ass.

6 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. - Element119

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. - Stalin

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. - steve44

High School love is a lie. Eventually, they'll get sick of you and move onto the next hottest person.

7 School Dances

Let the children lose it, let the children use it, let all the children boogie... - keycha1n

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. - Element119

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. - steve44

8 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. - steve44

It nice you don't have to go outside when you don't want to, you can go outside when you want, abd you can talk to your friends and teachers you know that you don't have in class

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. - BlueBobYT

9 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. - steve44


10 Overall Maturation of the Student Body

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. - steve44

The only good thing about high school was its lack of teenyboppers.

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.

But not the student mind. - PianoQueen

The Contenders

11 Football and Basketball Games

Not if you don't understand the first thing about football...

The two exhilarating sports are fun to watch, but even more enjoyable if you're the one wearing the uniform. - steve44

So fun, make new friends too

I like the thing

12 Science Experiments

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. - PositronWildhawk

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. - steve44

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. - Pony

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 Fun Activities

Nothing at our school is fun its just a prison until we go home -from the student body of the Monterey wildcats

High school is a hell hole youll just be bullied soon so there's no fun in it

15 Marching Band

This and colorguard helped me create friends and helped me figure out who I am.

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.

Favorite thing easily

16 Music Classes

Music is life

I am 13 and in the school choir. - MChkflaguard_Yt

17 No Adult Responsibilities

It sounds like you have anger issues and that you're a big liar. and black

Teachers at my school always b like
I assume u came to tutoring
I say I didn't need it
She says then I assume u have an a in my class
Me as a matter of fact I DO so just quit assuming thing it only makes me angry and enforces my capability of speaking a certain language
It called sarcasm

18 Spares

I remember having a spare before lunch in my last quarter or grade 12 it was nice

19 Learning New Things
20 No Uniforms

Sadly I'll wear one because of this abomination they call don't compare with other kids

Yay! Now I can wear sweatpants 24/7

Uniforms to me is a sign of maturity, teenage and entering of the most interesting part of life. - MChkflaguard_Yt

A sign of maturity is not following orders to wear a uniform.

21 Graduation

It already 2 years since my 2017 grad time flies, and few days it already 5 years since my first day of high school, time sure flies feels like high school was yesterday and my exciting feeling of graduating - trains45

Leaving high school

Goodbye FOREVER mean and strict special ed teacher!

The sooner I can leave the better

22 Proms

Proms suck - MChkflaguard_Yt

23 Pretty Girls

This is something every boy looks forward to!

Oh ya a bunch of them!

24 Sports Teams
25 School Camps
26 English Class

I only like learning new vocabulary words and reading Shakespeare and poetry. - Ihateschool

27 Play Time

The never ending Jungle Gym's and Parks and Tag... Awesome.

There is no playtime in my school - Ihateschool

There's no such thing as playtime in high school :(

28 AP Chemistry
29 AP Physics

Physics for the win. the only real science. the others bow down to the godliness of this subje

30 Electives

Most of the time you don't do anything

31 Preparing You for the Real World

Not in special ed.

32 Less Homework Than Middle School

That's not true

Nope. There's a lot of assignment and tests.

33 People

Most people in Highschool want to know who they are but don't

34 Senior Appreciation Day

Ugh I don't care for these. Honestly everyone treats seniors like their kings and queens and it posses me off. I will not be that entitled next year. - Ihateschool

We get to skip classes, attend a talent show, enjoy a BBQ, and go home early!

What about a Freshman Appreciation Day, huh?

35 More Advanced Classes

It’s an interesting challenge.

I’m Asian and THANK MY LUCKY STARS that my parents didn't force me to take AP Calculus

36 The Homework

Seriously? - Ihateschool

37 The next 4 years go by in a blink of an eye!

My 3 high school years flew by, 5 years ago was when I started high school 4 years today I started grade 11, time sure flies to me feels like I was just in grade 10, 11 and 12 - trains45

38 Girls Have Boobs

This is a plus


39 Bigger School
40 Being Independent and Going to School with Friends

You can be more independent and go to school with friends by bus or train

Teachers force you to do everything beyond their control

41 Different teachers/classmates
42 Senior Field Trip

Honestly, my school sucks except for the field trips. I'm going to a 12-day conference in Toronto soon which has been the highlight of my high school career.

My overprotective mom won't allow me to go on it :(

43 School Library

Books are the most wonderful thing ever.

44 Food
45 Popular Girls

At my school these are the girls that: exclude people, judge people, swear, often dislike church, get in trouble, make fun of you, and cause a lot of drama. One of the worst parts of high school

They are bueatiful, I have a crush on a few. I'm popular so that shouldn't be a big problem. Plus, I listen to rock and metal and everyone knows, I'm not excluded or hated. Some just make fun of you because you are annoying or are a snitch. Where I go to school, the alright kinds of nerds aren't made fun of, but aren't talked to or about much.

I really do not understand why people do not like popular girls. If they were so mean, how would they be popular? - Kaboom

Most of them are popular because they are mean and people think being with them make them "safe" when it's not. And if they are actually nice people, they probably become rude and gossipy in order to stay in the group. - MChkflaguard_Yt

This one person might not like games. Not everyone are like I don't know... Tom Morello?!

46 Study Hall/Graderoom

A class where you can do your homework, draw on the teacher's whiteboards, AND use the teachers' computers? AWESOME!

47 Physics Day

My high school had a thing called Physics day where you go to an amusement park to apply physics lessons to real life while having fun. I'm from the Philly area and they high school goes to Six Flags Great Adventure for their Physics Days.

48 Track & Field
49 Having a Spare Block

I had a spare in block 2 in the final quarter of grade 12, I was able to go to the library, go on the computer, or go to a nice park that was close to my school, that had nice creak and trees, and during a spare if I have work I could do it durning a spare instead of at home, and it was before lunch, so I got to have a free time from block 2 to the end of lunch
