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

Duh, no one likes homework. Homework is as difficult as a shell of snail which is three time as hard as three maths homework with 165 pages. No homework is like some legitimate blessing from God.

YES! Now I don't have to waste my time doing stuff that I already learned from school! - MasterHand

Bringing schoolwork home? Home is where you're supposed to get a break from school and see your family and have fun. Homework gets in the way and is unnecessary. They say its to see what you learned but can't they just see the next day, or on a quiz/test? Anything that involves school should be done at school, NOT AT HOME! The only reason to do anything at home is maybe a big project or something. MAYBE.

I am ok with tests, they are important, and studying or doing projects is the only homework we should have. Multiple studies show that homework only increases stress, not only that but, it also blurs the line between the time at school and the time at home. - Stalin

2 Less Days a Week

I want only 1 day - pLix33

Like college 4 days.

3 days with no homework. - Luckys

I say 2 days is the key. At least you have more time to complete homework or projects.

3 If Your Favorite Fictional Character Was Your Teacher

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

Hi, I'm Bugs Bunny, today we are going to learn about anvils! No homework, all homework will be sent to the desert to be ran over by the roadrunner - Maddox121

I wish the staff from Prometheus Academy in Hercules: the Animated Series were my teachers

4 No Bullies

Bullies are far worse than homework. - Userguy44

They're ruined education and school. Without them would be a better place


Should be number 1. - DarkBoi-X

5 More Field Trips

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.

I haven't gone on a field trip in... How long has it been... Uh... I don't know, 3 maybe 5 years. My school banned them because they want us to sit around and take standardized tests all day every day.

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

Should start at 10 AM and end at 3 PM. At my school, days were 8:40 AM to 3 PM which is TOO LONG. Starting school at 10 AM would also mean less sleepy students. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

V 20 Comments
7 No P.E.

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

PE should be optional... - Luckys

I mostly don’t like P.E.

Yeah, but only for the kids who get exercise outside of school. If there are kids who go home and watch T.V. while eating twinkies on the couch, they should have to do PE to get exercise. If kids do a sport (at least 2 times a week), they shouldn't have to do PE.

V 18 Comments
8 Better Food

We have the cheapest pre-packaged foods at my school. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Just get your own food! - Userguy44

We have good food our pizza tastes just like pizza hut and no its not from pizza hut

2015: The year I found milk from 2009. - Cyri

V 24 Comments
9 Less Tests

Unless there are more math tests? Well yes duh math rules us - mathguy37

I know something even better...NO tests at all!

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

V 12 Comments
10 Less Hours a Day

Five hours is PLENTY. Why do I have to endure over seven hours of torture? - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Five. I am just glad math is one hour or one and a half hours long. - mathguy37

0 hours a day would be perfect - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

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

V 14 Comments

The Contenders

11 Longer Holidays

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

We need breaks

Haha yes! - Userguy44

All of the teacher work days are taken in my county when it snows. It means Febraury, March, and April have no days off; not one until spring break. I NEED a few for my sanity.

V 10 Comments
12 Being Allowed to Listen to an iPod All the Time

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

I think you should be able to listen to music during class cause it relaxes you and It makes working easier

V 8 Comments
13 Longer Breaks

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


You don't even have to go to school for more than 7 hours, and you get a lunch and if you're young a recess (and if you're older, a free period). The school year is less than all the vacation you get. Stop complaining. - ProPanda

And you have to come home from that 7 hours and do more hours of homework... - LarrytheFairy

V 10 Comments
14 More Entertaining Classes

Video game classes would be amazing! - MasterHand

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

No boring classes. In Australia in Melbourne at Princess hill primary school, my teacher almost only read books and let us have free time, we hardly hard to work at all. We had a Pajama day where everyone had to come in their pajama and it was just amazing, and very easy. - CALLOFDUTY,BITCH

Best teacher ever: my teacher I used to have gave us candy for solving questions that Were as easy as pie, she's really fun, she tells us stories what happened to her once, and more. Her class was like, the room of fun and awesome

15 No Racism Allowed

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?

Tired of China, Asia and Africa haters! - MChkflaguard_Yt

16 Shorter School Year

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

Shorter Year, Longer Vacation - DK

20 Less Standardized Testing

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

21 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

This item actually really bothers me - DrayTopTens

22 More Focus on Learning Than Grades

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

24 Comedian Teachers

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

Adam Sandler would be awesome to have in class

25 Your Favorite Fictional Characters Become Your Classmate

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!

That would be The Backyardigans would become my classmates. - Ilovestephanie

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

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

Yes this is very important

Each computer could have 8GB of RAM instead of 2GB, which would make them more pleasant to use.

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

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

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

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.

32 If Kids Stopped Saying Cuss Words

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

This would be much better, I have heard kids say f**k every 2 seconds it got annoying - trains45

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 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

35 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

36 Have 1 on 1 Mentors


Hell no


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.

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

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

That’s not educational - blackflower

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

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

I got persecuted for my religion in school by some teachers, all catholic. I'm SDA.

43 Spoiled Kids Were Regulated

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)

Update 3:I forgot, I'm now in 5th grade.

44 Teaches What You Need in Life

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

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
