Things That Would Make School Awesome

Like most of you, I'm still in school, and I agree, it sucks. But what would make school, dare I say it, good? Unfortunately, we can only imagine. I still got 5 years to go, and you probably got a few too. So, what do you think will make school awesome?

The Top Ten

1 No Homework

Just imagine having a rough school day to just come home to a 12 inch tall stack of worksheets and textbooks. Well you probably don't need to imagine because I'm pretty sure 99.999 percent of you have had this happen to you before. Schools say you need a good nights sleep, but who can do that when they have to complete a forest's worth of flattened trees stamped with printer vomit using graphite on a stick. I bet if one day, homework was banned for some reason, we could save thousands of trees. Also, millions of students would have the eight hours of sleep they deserve.

All of this list (at least the top ten) is quantity rather than quality. Less this, less that. Why aren't you talking about how teaching methods should change? - Alkadikce

Nobody likes homework, it's true, but it's good practice that you can do after school so we're not lazy. You may say "I won't forget it! " but it's like, part of your grade - itsuniminecraft

Teachers don't like having to grade homework any more than students like having to do the homework

2 Less Days a Week

Three Days Of Weekend, Four Days Of School. Seems Reasonable To Me - thenextsteplover

4 days, it gives you a day off for relief and stress clear, to hang out with your pet or spend some quality time with your family, if you work hard during school. You could even take some homework for that day with you. There would be more sports games played on that day, so you could get a chance to do it on that day if it's not too hot. I think a day off would be perfect. - itsuniminecraft

@Joeljohns249-in the US colleges usually offer classes 2-3 days a week instead of 5

I want only 1 day - pLix33

3 If Your Favorite Fictional Character Was Your Teacher

In fact, we do need Thanos to be a teacher. - PrimaryKale7

You could make catwoman your teacher! My God she is sexy!

Have you ever looked at humanity and wondered, WHAT are you doing? - Unnamed Google User Remade

If the Super Mario Bros were my teachers, I would faint from awesomeness. - MasterHand

4 No Bullies

They should all be expelled, it would make decent peoples lives a hell of a lot better.

If you're going to be a bully, we will deport you! - PrimaryKale7

It's just better for everyone

No bullies is definitely a way to make a school better

5 More Field Trips

Kids spend SO much time studying and working super hard. They should get a reward to get out be able to see something without realizing they're learning too. In class, they usually get tired of all the working, and soon their hand is tired, their eyelids are heavy, and they're struggling a lot.
Field trips could definitely help with that, I think. They could explore new things while learning at the same time and expressing themselves with what they want to learn and their style. Then the teacher and everyone will know, and it'll be easier for them all. - itsuniminecraft

It would fun to have a field trip every month or something or for a few days in a row - trains45

Exactly. Kids spend to much time trapped in hell (school). It's unhealthy and hurts you're mind. Children need more time outdoors and more fresh air. They always spend time memorizing and stressing, and that's not how you learn. You need to let kids have fun and and let their creativity show, you can't make them hide their thoughts and creativeness.

Field trips make the school year interesting. It gives students an opportunity to learn things outside of the school premises (but still within the school's control). Also, it encourages the students to have some sort of adventure.

6 Start School Later

I normally wake up at, like, 7am or something and then I am forced to get up early and do my daily crap before going to school.

Even better is cancelling classes altogether!

I think we should start school at 12:00 and end at 4:00 - MasterHand

We need enough rest. I wouldn’t want to be sleepy during discussions. :/ - Misfire

7 No P.E.

For kids that go home, go on their electronics, and eat chips and junk? Maybe this shouldn't apply to them. P.E. stands for Physical Education... it gives exercise because it's important to stay healthy and fit. Maybe they do sports outside of school, some kids. They probably do, but not all of them. Plus, even for them it's extra and that's good if they don't overdo themselves. I disagree. - itsuniminecraft

I disagree. P.E. is awesome in my opinion - BananaDeluxe

PE should be optional... - Luckys

I mostly don’t like P.E.

8 Better Food

At my old school, the chicken in the chicken nuggets wasn't chicken - itsuniminecraft

Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 is downright BS - PrimaryKale7

I agree school nearly ruined pizza and lasangne for me

The food in school, for the most part, sucks. If they always had good food, you'd look forward to school more. - booklover1

9 Less Tests

Stop saying 'no tests.' Usually teachers will give you proper amount of time, if they aren't then tell your mom or something so she can talk to her. Tests are important so teachers know what you know and where to place you so you can learn best. How would you like it if you got put at something you learned years ago? And it was way too easy? Or you got something super hard? Less tests, I do agree on that. But none? I don't. Some of these things we need in order for school to work. Without school, you don't learn anything. I mean if school never existed. Everyone would be quite dumb, wouldn't they? Respect parts of school because you'll later use a lot of it. - itsuniminecraft

Solution: Delete No Child Left Behind and the Common Core - PrimaryKale7

Nobody likes tests, and you often don't have much time to study. More time between tests is less stressful, gives you more time to learn, and more time to study. - booklover1

Why do they have to have so many tests! Well, semester exams and final exams, I'm fine with them. But normal tests are just...No! - MLPFan

10 Less Hours a Day

6 hours a day is to extreme. 3 would be WAY better. - booklover1

Yeah! Lets have a strike against school hours! Less mean teachers, more stamps, less negative comments and more positive comments! LESS HOURS A BLOODY DAY!

My school day is 7 hours a day, that's too much for my short attention span to handle

Make school start at like ten or ten thirty so people don't fall asleep in class and are more alert during the long day.

The Newcomers

? The Week Becomes The Weekend And The Weekend Becomes The Week

The Contenders

11 Longer Holidays

Having school in August, in COLORADO...
Pure hell. - PrimaryKale7

YES! Why do we need school in December or June? - MasterHand

Summer break should be four months. Christmas break should be a month. Thanksgiving break should be two weeks. Spring break should be a month and two weeks - toptenzen

We need breaks

12 Longer Breaks

Yes for longer breaks, but not lunch. I wanna see my crush/friend thank you very much. I have a different lunch then him, because of how it was split.

1 day of school a year. - GamerXS

I think recess should be an hour and a half and lunch should take longr for those who are slow eaters like me it takes me a while to finish eating so yeah I want a longer lunch and recess we work hard enough so we deserve a break and not just a small one!

I agree I love sitting on the monkey bars but not the original ones - mathguy37

Recess and Lunch doesn't feel as long as it really is. - booklover1

13 Being Allowed to Listen to an iPod All the Time

That would help a lot. The music could help soothe and calm you if you're getting ready for a test, or bring the energy level a bit lower after a break. When you're working, though, you wouldn't be able to hear the teacher. But yeah, that seems good at the moment! - itsuniminecraft

That would be nice, and when working and you could block a distraction outside the hallway, it also be nice for at lunch - trains45

Especially during lunch so we can de-stress from mean teachers

Only with headphones, and not while the teacher is talking - blackflower

14 More Entertaining Classes

We do need a class on how to sit. - PrimaryKale7

My English teacher gave us sherbet fountains whilst reading Boy by Roald Dahl.

Video game classes would be amazing! - MasterHand

Like shop class where you get to have fun building pimping rides!

15 Shorter School Year

And shorter school days! - Yoshiandaglover

Me and my friends would agree. - Userguy44

Woo more time to see my crush in hot clothes...

Oh yes. Where I live I usually start school in late July. That's way too early. Most students would not be thinking of school at that time. I wish I started school in August or early September like all the other school districts in the United States do. - anonygirl

16 No Racism Allowed

But that means destroying every person who grew up in the south - PrimaryKale7

I'm 10 and there's racist people in my school

People saying n at school? How would this happen?

Why would they allow racism at school?

17 Clean Toilets

Hire more janitors - PrimaryKale7

Who else can relate? - itsuniminecraft

18 Kinder Teachers

Like one of my favorite special ed teacher Mrs Cheesboro

19 More P.E Classes

You just said less PE

I put this low because not everyone likes P. E, but to those who do, more P. E classes would be AWESOME. - booklover1

PE is my favourite ever subject. I love all sports so much! More PE would be awesome (and swimming more often not just one term! )

My p.e teacher is awesome! She does everything awesomely and lets my girlfriend and I hold hands and kiss and we do tons of awesome stuff like basketball tournaments everyday!

20 Sex With Teachers

Why would we want to have sex with teachers, that's disgusting! - RickyReeves

This is disgusting. Who would want to have sex with a teacher? - RiverClanRocks

Oh wow, man

Wait a second man Whaddaya think the teacher's gonna look like this year? (my butt, man)

Oh yeah T-T-Teacher stop that screaming, teacher don't you see?

Don't want to be no uptown fool

Maybe I should go to hell, but I'm doing' well,

Teacher needs to see me after school

I think of all the education that I missed

But then my homework was never quite like this

Ow got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,

I'm hot for teacher

I got it bad, so bad,

I'm hot for teacher

Hey, I heard you missed us, we're back

I brought my pencil

Gimme something to write on, man

Uh uh, I heard about your lessons, but lessons are so cold

I know about this school

Little girl from Cherry Lane, how did you get so bold?

How did you know that golden rule?

I think of all the education that I missed

But then my homework was never quite like this

Ow got it bad, got it ...more - Skullkid755

...okay - Misfire

21 Less Standardized Testing

I know "less tests" is already an option, but I feel like this is its own thing. - JustAnotherAccount

22 More Focus on Learning Than Grades

I think school should be 50 grades at least - teacher


23 No Creepy Perverts

There's perverts everywhere, DEPORT THEM ALL TO VENEZUELA - PrimaryKale7

I'd loose a lot of friends

If they didn't exist there wouldn't be 'sex with teachers' or 'naked girls' on this list - DrayTopTens

This one girl always asks if I need to pee - Ihateschool

24 Your Favorite Fictional Characters Become Your Classmate

Oh, Goten would be my best friend lmao

Luigi being in my class? He would be my best friend! - MasterHand

It would be really cool if the loud house characters or all BFDI characters were my classmates - DrayTopTens

Icarus from Disney's Hercules would make a great classmate!

25 Comedian Teachers

Jim Gaffigan needs to be a teacher - PrimaryKale7

This would be awesome, so they can make us laugh.

Adam Sandler would be awesome to have in class

I had a teacher who told scary stories before - PeeledBanana

26 No Strict Teachers

Focus on this. This makes school so much better because the teachers would just make it so entertaining.

Imagine if your teacher was obsessed with your favourite book/T.V. show/anime and talked about it almost all the time

My dream would come true

I'd LOVE for this to happen.

That's like a dream - Ananya

27 Faster Computers

No, the teacher should be a computer. And if it doesn't boot up in 0.0005 seconds, we get to leave. - PrimaryKale7

Please - itsuniminecraft

YES! The computers they have in my school SUCK! - MasterHand

Yes this is very important

28 Being Able to Watch Movies More Often

Movies we watch in January, February, March, April, May, and June are boring. movies in September, October, November and December are fun

Yeah, agree with this A LOT.

December: 80% chance of watching a movie
Other months: 20% chance of watching a movie

The movies we watch suck I want to be allowed to watch animated movies like Boss Baby and Secret Life Of Pets in school - Ihateschool

Only if they don't give you questions that go with the movie

29 Choose Your Subject

It be cool if you could pick what time to have the classes, I would of saved the fun classes for later and my grade 12 spare for the last block of the day instead of before lunch - trains45

And maybe you could pick your CLASSMATES!

I rather math first reading last we can not move lunch - mathguy37

I want to do art and play soccer. I also want to learn to sing.

30 Gay PDA allowed

That is creepy


Hoe about PDA in general? - Stalin

My school doesn't alow any pda.

31 No More Popular Girls

Everyone thinks popular girls are mean to everyone! But not all of them are nasty and rude and snotty and selfish and whatever else. Can't say I'm one myself. Can say they're probably VSCO. But still... - itsuniminecraft

DEPORT THEM! - PrimaryKale7

Excuse me? without us what would there be?


32 If Kids Stopped Saying Cuss Words

We deport them to china, where they belong - PrimaryKale7

Why can't kids just ever use nice words? If every time a kid said a curse word they had to pay me a dollar, I would be able to afford everything in the world - DrayTopTens

I am in 7th grade and I am not allowed to say words like stupid, shut up, idiot or. I know I just said it, but I am online and my parents will never know (cue evil laughter) - XxembermasterxX

I know it's a crappy rule made by overprotective Asian parents. - XxembermasterxX

We need to stop

It sucks being the only person in my entire class that has never said a cuss word

33 Psychologists Were Hired to Help Mentally Ill or Misbehaved Students

This would be GOOD because there is this hypersensitive butthurt kid in school who needs to learn how to get on with their social life

Schools actually DO have psychologists, but they don't try hard enough sometimes...

34 Choose Your Teacher

This would be awesome if I got to pick all my favorite teachers, I have had a favorite teacher and never got a class with them, happened with a few teachers, one I had only 2 classes with when they were subbing before they came a full time teacher - trains45

So I can be at least in one class with all of my friends. - Kwaysar

I agree. There was this one teacher at my school named Megan LaVallee that I desperately wanted to have as a teacher last year. Also, everyone told me I would have her. However, I did not have her. Because of this, I never got to communicate with her (she was not comfortable with communicating with me for some reason). If I was allowed to pick my teacher, then I would have picked her in a nanosecond. - anonygirl

There are the surprising boring math teacher at my school which never interact with us students, and everyone falls asleep. She also gives lots of homework every day. I wish I have another one which can actually deliver knowledge to us with interesting ways. - MChkflaguard_Yt

35 Sensible Amounts of Homework

I have only three this is the last week of school for me so I have zero right now. So I am ok - mathguy37

If by sensible you mean none, I agree

10 homework per day is insane, 3 is better. - MChkflaguard_Yt

36 Have 1 on 1 Mentors

I think the person who put this on this list meant something else - GamerXS

Sometimes a student just needs a little extra help. Having one teacher to explain you're classes to you at you're pace would be great.


Hell no

37 Recess in High School

It be kinda cool if they had recess at lunch or something - trains45

YES! - Ilovestephanie

If I ran the school schedule, it would be like this:

8:30-9:45: 1st/5th Period
9:45-10:15: Recess
10:20-11:35: 2nd/6th Period
11:35-12:35: Lunch
12:40-1:55: 3rd/7th Period
1:55-2:25: Recess
2:30-3:45: 4th/8th period
3:45: Release

With a 5-minute passing period in between. - anonygirl

It would work out even better if you have 4 classes one day and 4 the next. Each class would be longer allowing more work time and eliminating the homework problem. - Stalin

38 Websites Like YouTube and TheTopTens were not Banned

Jokes on you YouTube is banned in all school accounts.

I had youtube blocked in my old school it sucked, they did unblock it eventually though, but I wasn't sure if the toptens were banned I didn't know this site until late grade 12 - trains45

I hate school screw you gov no one likes you your just wasting everyones and your time

I can go on TheTopTens at my school but not YouTube. - 3DG20

39 If Criss Angel Was the Principal

Yeah! Haha he's already the principal for my school

You want to see some magic? Magic math though...

Who the Yoko is that?

Whose Criss Angel?

40 End School Earlier

They should make May the last month. - MasterHand

My high school used to have a 12pm dismissal every friday, they removed that after I graduated, in jr high and Elementary we had a 12pm dismissal every 2 or 3 weeks, it was always on a friday, I had 2, 12pm dismissals on my birthday, it was nice, I had a 12pm dismissal on my grade 1 and grade 12 birthday - trains45

Then we'd have to start earlier though. - PianoQueen

41 Party Class

As long as there are no drugs and alcohol then I'm down. Also bring potato chips - Ihateschool

Think about it: party party and MORE PARTY! Candy, fun, no homework, cake (not lies), and BLINDING LIGHTS! It would be really epic

Actually, there will be homework:Eat a piece of candy!

Oh, this is what I call heaven! - Animefan12

42 No Religion

Why, that would let all the terrorists in - PrimaryKale7

Religion should be allowed but if children with no religion (like me) don't want to talk about religious beliefs then they should let them have a break from learning about religion

No religion yet no racism allowed? This is racist. This Mustn't be in this list. - Animefan12

Religion should be allowed but not coerced

43 Spoiled Kids Were Regulated

No, we deport them! - PrimaryKale7

Why would they need to be regulated... would you remove their Nike t-shirts?

In my house, I have 3 bedrooms, 5 TVs, two computers, a laptop, tables, each of 6 people has a phone (even my 4 years old sister has a touch phone), my dad has an ipod, I have 2 pets, and I live on a 9th flat of a building. I go shopping everyday with my mom or grandma. Am I spoiled?

Update:All of the brat's fish were sold, so she has fifteen pets, and I got a betta (his name is John Cena)

44 Teaches What You Need in Life

Sad but true... :/ - itsuniminecraft

Or just allow us to choose the classes we believe will benefit us the most. Because by High School you should know enough math to function in real life. - Stalin

True rarely are any of the classes even somewhat useful to help you in life.

Ikr! So true! Our parents don't always teach us all the things you need in life, even when they should. We should have teachers like Cory Matthews from Girl Meets World.

45 No Guns Allowed

This is already a rule

Sydney has one in her backpack and she threatens to shoot up Mukwonago High School

Yeah, In 1990 in the United States, congress passed the gun-free school zones act, so it’s already a rule in all schools. - JoeBoi

Isn't this rule common in all schools? - Animefan12

46 Phones Allowed During Classtime

Apparently, these are allowed in my biology and one of my tech classes. We're left to use common sense to decide what's an appropriate time to use them. - Kwaysar

People wish this but my school just banned it :'(

They’d be an even bigger distraction - blackflower

I could be playing Clash of Titans if I could - RainbowArtist191

47 Not Having to Do Your Regular Work on Days Where There is a Substitute Teacher.

I have had this happen in photography they couldn't get cameras when there was a sub, so when I needed to do photoshoot I had to wait until the teacher returned but lucky there was a computer I could just do free time - trains45

Substitute: Good morning class, your teacher is away today, and he/she left your work here...
Students: BOOO!
Substitute:...If I can find it.
Student #1: Wait! What?
Substitute: Well, that’s the end of that...
The students cheer.
Substitute: It’s okay, I wasn’t actually going to make you guys do that. Now who wants to watch “Paranormal Activity”? - 3DG20

48 No Annoying Kids

Just deport ALL of them! - PrimaryKale7

49 If Jesus Christ Was the Principal

Jesus comes in, and he starts T posing out of nowhere while the muslim kids die of his awesomeness. - PrimaryKale7

That would be AWESOME - GamerXS

Jesus would probably get weird looks in my school since I a Jewish school
(I am not against Christianity besides I would like this) - Ihateschool

That would be wonderful! The school would be much better

50 You Get to Decide the School Play of the Year

The simpsons

I would so pick Ninjago Hunted I would be Kai

The death of Elsa!
