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 Things That Would Make School Awesome

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

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

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

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 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

Cilan? My teacher? Shut up and take my money! - RiverClanRocks

4 No Bullies

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

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

Focus on this, the other ideas just make the new generation go soft.

Bullies are worse than homework. You never know! What if your homework is something awesome like listening to rap or eating pizza? - 51im_Ro55_2002

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

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.

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.

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.

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

In my country, schools normally start at 7 AM. I have to wake up at half past six, and it tires me a lot, then we all get sleepy and air-headed in class and find it difficult to focus or think anything. Forcing students to wake up that early is extremely counterproductive, actually. - Goku02

Less sleepy students means more work being done. They'll be more rested and ready to work with concentration. Most likely their eyelids won't be daring to droop down and close, so they'll be ready for the day! My old school hours were 8:30 to 2:50 and now they're 7:30 to 2:00 lol - itsuniminecraft

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

YES! I hate gym so much!

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.

I actually like gym. - PianoQueen

8 Better Food

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

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

The reason school food is disgusting is because the school hires cheap-ass chefs that don't know what they're doing, therefore produce crappy food.

Our hamburgers tasted like crap. And I HATED Taco Tuesday. Seriously, what is WRONG with people who don't even know how to do tacos? I wished they hired a Mexican who knew how to cook. - RainbowArtist191

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

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

I was in math class, doing ratios. We had been doing ratios for about forever, and out of the blue, my math teacher says, "Time for a test.'' Like, what!?! We aren't even prepared because you wasted your time teaching us something we already know!

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 Contenders

11 Longer Holidays

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

Four months of summer vacation?! I can't imagine how depressed I would get from lack of productivity and stimulation! I'd say, get rid of summer vacation entirely, and give me a week and a half off of school each month. The needed amount of break each time school gets a bit old. That's about 132 days off of school a year. Throw in a week and a half extra for Christmas, summer, spring, and Thanksgiving break, which is 132+44=176 365-176=189 days of school a year. Which is about how much we have now. But come on, eleven days off a month! Spreading it out like that would be much preferred to me, because summer vacations always get me bored one month in. This is a much more realistic fix, rather than just cutting out school entirely. - keycha1n

Summer, Christmas break, Spring Break, everything should be longer. - booklover1

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

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.

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

THANK GAWD SOMEONE TALKING ABOUT RECESS you KNOW MY SCHOOL HAS ONLY 15 MINS OF RECESS 15 THIS SHOULD BE AT NUMBER ONE

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

Yeah definitely! I hope this goes in the top ten soon, this could be in the top 3 but it'll be a stretch the way this is going that would make school very fun

14 More Entertaining Classes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oh god this list is so good - Ananya

17 Clean Toilets

Who else can relate? - itsuniminecraft

Hire more janitors - PrimaryKale7

18 Kinder Teachers

Like one of my favorite special ed teacher Mrs Cheesboro

19 More P.E Classes

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!

That would be kinda bad because we can play sports however we want. PE is an art, and art means original styles!

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

This is disturbing because most teachers are older

Most of the teachers I know at my school so far are in their 30s, but I agree either way. Whoever added this is a pervert. - 3DG20

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

THAT WOULD BE BETTER

23 No Creepy Perverts

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

I'd loose a lot of friends

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

24 Your Favorite Fictional Characters Become Your Classmate

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

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

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

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

25 Comedian Teachers

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

Jim Gaffigan needs to be a teacher - PrimaryKale7

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

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

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

In my school, students are NEVER allowed to watch any movies at all. - Goku02

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

I'd choose only Biology and arts. Screw the rest - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

30 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

We deport them to china, where they belong - PrimaryKale7

31 Gay PDA allowed

My school doesn't alow any pda.

Now THAT would be creepy

Hoe about PDA in general? - Stalin

That is creepy

32 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

So, popular girls aren't allowed but what about popular boys? - NotYoursTruly

It says "girls" because popular girls tend to be far more annoying and bratty.

That's not always the case. The boys make fun of everyone who is not "normal", and I am on the autism spectrum. Some of the popular boys are violent (I may practice martial arts, but I hate hurting people in any way),and I have had to defend myself twice. The girls can be annoying too, yes, but they don't actively hurt people as often. - Cyri

No I love girls, I rather no more popular boys except me - mathguy37

33 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

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

That would be awesome, but sadly, it would never happen because the 4 I would pick are way too good for me and my classes lol - 3DG20

34 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...

35 Sensible Amounts of Homework

If by sensible you mean none, I agree

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

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.

yes

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

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'm able to use both of these sites in school - Ihateschool

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

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

They should make May the last month. - MasterHand

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

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

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?

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

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.

Sad but true... :/ - itsuniminecraft

45 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 :'(

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

If this was a thing, I can just listen to the songs I like while doing schoolwork. I also want a free, fast and accessible wi-fi hotspot in school. I don't know, but listening to my favourite songs just feels better to ease stress and frustration on hard sums than listening to some innuendos the perverted students in my class like to crack up and laugh at. - MLPFan

46 No Guns Allowed

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

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

This is already a rule.

Yeah but some people don't follow it

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

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

Damn Daniel where do I begin?

BEST THING EVER

50 You Get to Decide the School Play of the Year
