Untrue Things They Tell You About High SchoolThis is basically a list covering some of the lies people tell you about high school or even just school in general.
The Top Ten
Pretty much as long as there’s no violence they will just treat it as nothing - Randomator
They threaten to shoot me and no one cares as it's a girl who did it
then again because I made an error since I was paranoid at the time I ended up under a tarp camping somewhere instead of staying with people who basically shooed me away due to misunderstandings (they weren't mean though) and ofc people have to be all mean about it
Luckily, I don't have to bother doing this since I was never bullied at school. Yet, I doubt the teacher's capabilities in handling these issues. It is more complex than face value. - Bolshoy_Brat
Bullying is everywhere. Anyone can get bullied anytime. - AlphaQ
No. I just started high school this year and it's SO DANG HARD! I have SO much work and tests. And I like some things others hate, and I have to keep it a secret so they don't judge me. And grades actually matter in high school.
No. My freshman year just started for me this year and it's worse than 8th grade.
Seriously?! Having to get 24 credits to graduate?! Hours of work and extracurricular activities?! Everything counting on your permanent record?! SATs?! Sure, high school can seem fun sometimes, but I wouldn't call it the *best* time of your life. I'll be in high school next year sadly. :'(
The only best year of your life in high school is when you graduate. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
How can I miss being bullied and hated by my classmates.. -.- And stupid homeworks.. - OrangeRin
A lot of my senior friends in the past have said they don’t miss it at all - Randomator
I was in an emotionally abusive friendship my last year and a half of high school. That, plus waking up early, all the homework, standardized testing, stress, etc,. Yeah, I like college much better, especially since I'm gonna be a junior in college and I'm living in an apartment for the first time this year! - ETNMystic
So you'll miss, the homework, boring classes, and constant stress of everything in high school? I think not.
No, I have. To be honest, I kinda like my new personality of how I tend to be less disgruntled than before. - Kevinsidis
No, it is not! I struggle with making my own sentences, so it’s hard for me to make friends. - Misfire
The only way I fitted in was due to me being in the Theatre program. It was due to luck that it had a great community, and unfortunately, I'm still socially awkward outside of Theatre - SpectralOwl
Fitting in with other cliques is actually difficult in real life, and a bit risk taking well for me at least. - htoutlaws2012
Depends. Either you're heading to a school where you know a lot of kids and you'll fit in well, or you'll not know anyone and will have to start your school life from scratch.
Lucky for me I didn't know almost anyone when I first came to my new school. - CloudInvasion
Not entirely. I'd say this is the least true out of the top ones because I had a genuinely great highschool experience. It was a new start, but my pals were still my pals, and the people who thought I was weird still thought that way. Didn't bother me one bit.
Until you realize you still have classes with half of the people at your previous school that you already hated... - 3DG20
Does it really feel like it aside from some new things its more less the same thing only difference your luckily given freedom. - htoutlaws2012
You should be yourself even if they bully you. If people will bully you for it, don't be their friends. Instead, befriend people who will accept you for who you are. If you don't be yourself, then you will lose sight of who you really are. Be proud of who you are. If people bully you for being nerdy, screw them. - listotaku17
This I would say is more right actually, I just let myself become what I wanted to be by choice without faculty knowing my true intentions I walk in the path alone. - htoutlaws2012
Be yourself, get bullied, get punished by the teacher, be called a failure. enough said
Well, try to be yourself, considering people won’t bully you for it... - 3DG20
Bit subjective to me. There will be people who will find it fun, some won’t. - MrCoolC
Hah, I remember joining one (photography class) out of curiosity and oh boy, it was so boring. Now, I just do it solo. - Bolshoy_Brat
I hope in physics! - Kevinsidis
I used to have WIFL clubs when I was a middle school student. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome
Why do you think so many people have complained about moving from 5th to 6th grade more than this? - SpectralOwl
This is actually pretty true lol I remember my freshmen year it sucked - RPD6478
Not true at all
I’m almost done my freshman year and I’ve only had a few minor problems with this. - 3DG20
Yeah that's false they do extent if needed if the whole class is struggling. - htoutlaws2012
Depends on the teacher and/or if you are a good student
Mine does but I always do my work on time. - Ihateschool
Depends on the teacher - Randomator
No there's technically 5 to my knowledge, but the 5th is a supersolid called the Bose-Einstein Condensate. The 4th is plasma and I don't know why they don't teach it in lower grades.
There’s also a lot more than three! But we only have four main states
Wrong, there's actually four.
oh wait this is untrue things they tell you about high school
sh- - mattstat716
I was always told this urban legend, but than again that was always the mentality I always assume observing as a common trend that just happens. - htoutlaws2012
Even in my senior year, I was still being bullied!
I was bullied in nearly every single grade in high school
This is very true in my school - YOSHIA2121
Yum, school food is the most delicious and healthy food out there! - Ginger
The food at my school is actually very good. - PhoenixAura81
The food at my high school was delicious
Ha! Not at my school
Yet... it is kinda true though that seems to be the common theme where High school student aren't like College students where there not motionless robots. - htoutlaws2012
There's really not much drama. I'm a junior and I've only seen real drama about three or four times throughout high school. - The01Bro
Blame Degrassi for this myth - PerfectImpulseX
It's too much or not depending on how you see it. - listotaku17
At my school it all depends on how you work. You get like half the class to work on the assignment most of the time - Randomator
I thought I would get a lot of homework but I didn't get that much!
TRUE - AlphaQ
I was gonna add this because I don’t get a lot of homework (thank god! ) but this is true for a lot of people. - 3DG20
Whoever put this is a complete moron. - mattstat716
They are not that bad... well depending on what it is - bryton
That one is true
Lmfao legend - rankist
Pfft! Whoever said that either had lots of friends and a pleasant experience or are confusing high school with our child/teenage years in general. That I will miss. - 3DG20
They actually do matter. Your Gpa will follow you the rest of your life - Randomator
They only matter until you graduate. - 3DG20
They DO matter...to my Asian parents!
Truth is graduating is all that really matters. Diploma doesn't have GPA printed on it.
No idea where you heard that from, but it is absolutely not true at all. High school is FULL of drama. - 3DG20
Oh there’s drama alright almost as bad as middle school - Randomator
Essays are TORTURE!
Don’t let the “Oh, we’re going through puberty. We’re so cool” fiasca fool you. Puberty is just a change in your body and yes, your mind develops as you get older, but that doesn’t mean they’re maturing mentally, in fact, in most cases it’s almost no different. I wonder what it’s like being a teacher having to take care of a bunch of teenage students like a babysitter, spending hours marking their work every night and even having to go in on days that students don’t which is why I would never be a teacher. - 3DG20
I mean, it is true as it’s how babies are made. - 3DG20
It’s really not (to me). - PhoenixAura81
Well, it’s necessary for reproduction. - MrCoolC
Trust me. It doesn't. And this is coming from someone who takes special ed classes.
In special ed classes in my high school the kids just did kindergarten math, played on pbskids.org, and watched movies in class all day long
No it doesn’t. It was made to help you with stuff, but doesn’t initially.
Not if you lose focus easily like me. - 3DG20
They sometimes give you EVEN MORE problems
Hello Mrs Jensen

How obvious could this be?
