Top 10 Worst School Shootings

The Top Ten
1 Columbine High School Massacre

I went to East Elementary in Littleton during the shooting. High schoolers from Columbine were running toward our school. One if them was shot in the leg. It was the saddest thing I'd ever saw. I would never have been so devastated. They had to shut down our school because people were being shot at columbine and they were afraid the shooters would come over here.

America. Our government always has there head in there A$$. They let Columbine happen, For the more recent people they killed 20 kindergarteners at a little school in Conneticut while our government figures out ways to get themselves richer, and screw us over. We are getting closer to a communist government. We must Revolt!

I have met the parents of some of the victims and it was just heartbreaking to see how 2 selfish teenagers could just take the lives of innocent high school classmates! They even shot a person just because he was black... Talk about racism! They also shot a girl just because she believes in god... Wow!

This shooting is also one of the few disasters where media violence was involved. Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, and The Matrix were all accused of influencing the shootings at Columbine.

2 Virginia Tech Massacre

This was a shocker on the news for me.

And I was only 11 at the time.

My mom and grandmother stared at the news report about this.

Everyone at the restaurant we was at stared at the T.V. saddened and devasted about this.

This was another tragic to America.

In terms of death count, this is the worst.

This was worst than columbine but not Orlando or beslan school seige

This was worst sandy hook and columbine but beslan school seige

3 Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, CT

I can't believe that there some people out there who have the nerve to call this fake and say it was staged by the goverment. They probably think it's too unbelievable to be real.

I feel really bad for the parents because it was a normal day, and than they got a phone call saying that their child died.

This one, shocked the entire nation as much as it did with Columbine. The gunman killed 20 first grade children!

The school shooting with the most deaths out of all other school shootings

4 Dunblane Massacre

The 2nd school shooting (and only fatal because the Fares comprehensive school massacre injured 10 but killed 0) and worst (it killed 18 or 20 if you include the 2 unborn babies)

5 University of Texas Massacre

Got confused with this shooting with the Kent state shooting

This one was worst than any school shooting it was scary

This was truly horrifying back for their time

This was like the columbine but older

6 Beslan School Seige

Why is this not number one? For one is isn't just a 1 hour shooting. It lasted 3 damn days and literally over 200 people where killed. And not to mention bombs where used. This makes what happened in Orlando look like a Nerf Gun fight.

Most of the other ones here only lasted about 20 minutes and only have 5-20 people killed. this however, lasted three DAYS. Hundreds of people got killed and countless got injured. It was so horrifying that even the Russian president cried.

The most horrifying event to ever happen in a school besides the columbine shooting columbine would always be number 1

This should be number 2 columbine should be number 1 it's the one that started it all

7 Parkland High School Florida Shootings

ANOTHER stupid Valentines Day massacre? Al Capone (aka Scarface) must be doing somersaults in his grave over this crazy fiasco!

This is terrible to mention, but this is truly a Valentine's Day massacre gone horridly wrong.

My heart is in pieces...how something as crazy as this, which claimed the lives of at least 17 innocent people who still had so much to live for, could still happen in this day and age is beyond shocking.

Yes, this was awful. I feel so bad and am praying for those involved.

8 Erfurt Massacre
9 Winnenden School Shooting
10 École Polytechnique Massacre

It was horrible that a man with such hatred towards women would kill innocent people. But, sadder still is, the event has since been used to demonize men everywhere, every December 6.

(I'm a woman, by the way. )

Yea this killed lots of girls

The Contenders
11 Kauhajoki School Shooting

Most known for the YouTube video the perpetrator uploaded before he shooting. There's fottage of the video, but the actual video was deleted by YouTube.

12 Rio de Janeiro School Shooting

11 innocent kids were killed by a ex-student of that school.

This massacre should be the number one because he killed INNOCENT KIDS, that had nothing to do with their problems of past (he was a bullying victim when studying on that school).

Unfortunately these kids died but than. thankfully that the assassin died, before kills other kids.

13 Azerbaijan State Oil Academy Shooting

I'm wondering if you were making a joke on that? It's funny if it was a joke.

This shooting was so sad at the oil academy

14 Chardon High School shooting

Not that bad. It was only a few deaths.

Killed 3 teens and showed no remorse

15 Thurston High School (Springfield, Oregon) Rampage

The fact that he killed his parents before he shot children is just wrong. And the fact they had signs of odd behavior and they could have done something about it but didn't is also wrong. It left the community in shock and in devastation, and it still is.

Kip Kinkel deicide to kill his parents before going to school. Then went on a rampage gunning down everybody in sight at the school.

16 Jeremy Wade Delle

A kid who shoots himself in front of his class is no joke.

Inspired the song Jeremy by Pearl Jam

17 Westside Middle School Massacre

I go to that school. For those who don't know it was a shooting in Arkansas in 1998. 2 boys (Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden) shot I believe 10 people. It was the worst massacre until Columbine. I go to that school and there is a memorial garden at the playground where the shooting happend I believe due to a hoax fire drill and a pavilion for a teacher that got shot. The shooters are still alive one I believe got arrested again for something and the other one changed his name and I heard lives in Texas. I like dank memes and hearing about Columbine being in the comments to me is like teen spirit being the
Nirvana song. Our school colors used to be scarlet white but now has black due to the shooting. Just to let you know about the school.

Only 5 deaths. Not as bad as Columbine but still, it was two perpetrators in this one too.

No one heard of this one

I had a fire drill today and Florida happens yesterday when I posted this and I was scared to death and planned on running to the nearest school (which is like 5 or 6 miles away)

18 Isla Vista Massacre

Eillot roger did this Because he couldn't get a girl friend killed 6 people

19 Discovery Middle School Shooting

Although there was only one death, the Discovery Middle School Shooting in Alabama was very traumatic. Todd Brown was fourteen years old when he was shot to death by Hammad Memon in 2010. I currently attend DMS, and I know that in some ways, the students and staff have never recovered. Todd Brown was a beautiful and amazing boy and a close friend of mine. I cannot stress enough how much he meant to me, to us, to Mrs. Brown, and the whole state of Alabama. May you find peace in the hands of the Lord, Todd, thank you for being my friend.

Jesus Christ Todd I think about you every day

This was absolutely horrible...

20 Santa Fe Texas Shooting

I just saw that news before.

21 Colegio Americano del Noroeste Massacre
22 Nic Diederichs Technical High School Slashing

I know this isn't a shooting but I just had to include this.

23 SuccessTech Academy Shooting

No one died so its not terrible

24 Busto Arsizio Pizzeria and School Shooting

On July 3, 1956, 30-year-old baking assistant Giuseppe Molinari went on a two-hour rampage in Busto Arsizio, Italy. He killed 6 in the pizzeria and 20 in the school before turning the gun on himself (27 dead, including perpetrator). He used a very high power submachine gun.

25 Umpqua Community College Shooting

This just happend really sad 9 killed I think
