Ten Worst Things About High School

Ten things you hate the most about high school in general.

The Top Ten


try this I missed 3 months of school and I was going to fail my grade so my teacher said finish all your homework and you'll pass you grade and she gave me 211 pages

I would have a perfect grade point average if I never had any homework. I have also noticed an interesting trend: I invariably have A's in classes with little or no homework, while those that give homework daily have much lower grades.

The reason for that could also be that the class that gives more homework is just a harder class overall. Easier classes tend to give less homework, at least at my school they do. - Revrad

I mean...I have Tourette syndrome, level 1 autism, anxiety, ADHD and mild depression...I get a lot of attention, but only because I'm REALLY bad at doing my work...is that bad...? Am I not allowed to get the help I need? because I'll just fail, that's fine with me honestly. And no, I ain't guilt tripping'. I'm saying that I care about other students more than me. But again, is this bad...?

This is not a problem at my high school. I always end up with no homework because I do all my studies at school.

Bitchy popular girls

one day I'm going to "accidentally" spill water on them and watch the 10 pounds of makeup slide off!

I admit that I hate homework, but it's important. You do learn things from it, and it destroys your grade if you don't do it, and it actually is an important responsibility.

Bitchy popular girls, on the other hand, bring my piss to a boil. Technically, I don't get why they are so popular... because everyone seems to hate them.

Thank God I just finished High School... To choose "the worst thing about High School" wasn't really easy. I just hate it! Everything about it. But apparently "Bitchy Popular Girls"is the worst!

"They were obsessed with themselves and thought they were the best at everything. Always following many stupid trends and acting immature for the smallest things. "


I'm not kidding, there are two special needs kids at my school that since they know they have special needs, can get away with anything. The two of them are twins as well so they could beat down another kid and take their money and other valuables and then fall to the ground screaming bloody murder, and the kid they bullied gets suspended. They have actually spit, kicked, punched, etc. Other kids and no one does jack. I have a disorders called Tourette's syndrome and OCD, but I would never bully another kid.

The next group of people I have to deal with is the populars. They act like they are kings and queens before the Magna Carta was signed, doing whatever they want when want. There's even this one popular kid at my school who is such a jerk to unpopular kids especially when they are considered different, but when a popular girl is around, he sugar coats it so he can "get some". What's sad is kids like me are put under the "unpopular category because either, were intelligent, ...more

This has made several amazing people in my life so depressed they've considered suicide. I don't see the purpose of hurting people especially when self-esteem is such a fragile thing already. It takes a lot to make me hate something but making the stupid decision to bully earns you a right on that list. For those going through this remember people care about you. Even if it's just the quiet girl who sits next to you in class, someone would miss you immensely if you weren't there any more. So, from a loved ones perspective, suicide is NEVER the answer, and it can get better. Stay happy inter-webers : )

I don't just have one bully. I have multiple bullies that I have to get away from every single day, and I don't even know any of their names but some know mine, they are males and females (mostly female). I have to avoid going through certain parts of my school in order to not crash into one of them, or possibly get a new one.
None of them even look good themselves, they are either Fat, ugly or really really stupid.. the funniest part is that all of them only seem to bully or talk trash about me when their friends are around. If they were alone, all they would do is keep walking with a straight face, or just stare at me. There was this girl that would talk about me with her friends. she had a small head and a really fat body.. she reminded me of Jobba The Hut from Star Wars. And there was this dude that would laugh every time I say my name for role call in class. That's pretty stupid if you ask me. I can go on and on but my text will be too long. I hate school.

awwww, jeezz, I'm going to be going threw this problem now... ahh great, high school bullies now, like I'm in grade 8, and next year I'll be in high school,, now the high school bullies? , c'mon gimme a break, lolz... well if I pull off suicide next year... I'm srry, LMAO jkk jk jk... damn it, high school bullies... let's see what happens, lol

You're lucky. In England, we have secondary school instead of the separate middle and high school. if you find a bunch of bullies in year 7 ( equivalent to 6th grade), you are stuck with them till year 11 (equivalent to 10th grade)! At least you can change high school easily but for me it will be very hard (p. S my school sucks).

Waking up Monday mornings

Entering the shower with the knowledge that you will soon be subjected with 6 1/2 hours of boredom is like entering the 7th circle of hell. #2 getting dumped.

The first thing that comes to my mind when the
alarm goes off on Monday mornings is "this is like
hell, I just wish I were dead"

Yeah this sucked after a weekend, especially a long weekend or first day back from break

ME:awesome weekend, the schools, uh oh I don't want to go into detail.

Annoying classmates

Worst with bitchy girls. Those bitchy girls team up with annoying classmates to make fun of poor students. I wanna fight these annoying creatures and give justice to those who are abused by these annoying bullies

Die, people. When I was in school, I was getting fed up with some of my classmates. I always think about talking behind their backs so I can enjoy school more. I had fun in the 1st semester, but everything changed when the new semester began. I wasn't picked to answer questions very often, thanks to a nerd who's the female equivalent of Gary Oak. Like she thinks she's better than me. I know more than her anyway, like lemons have more sugar than strawberries, but citric acid makes them taste sour instead. And she says to me everyday:"Smell ya later! ". Plus she gets more liked than me. My mom told me it was because she doesn't want me to be successful. She was right, and I beat her in a spelling bee. Heh heh heh, take that, BITCH.

Lol, I started dying of laughter when I saw it say "Smell ya later". definitely GAry - Absolite

I am fed up with annoying classmates. I am fed up with them because those morons got my class in trouble several times. Some are stupid, some are annoying, and some, you want to show them in their underwear. My classmates in English were just stupid. I wanted donuts, but these dunces ruined this opportunity. I also have to live with stupid people in reading class, as they either made me sit at a different table, annoy me, or make me rage quit. Idiots also make me lose in P.E. activities. I also hated this motherfer who is more lucky than me. She thinks she is better than me, but she is not.

At my school it's worse. I'm in 6th grade, and some of the kids are just perverted. Some kids (actually, a lot) ask for NUDES from their girlfriends. Also, there is this one "popular" girl who likes to take advantage of the fact that she is pretty by shoving her ass in a boy's face. It's awful. - Absolite

There are plenty of these in the schools I went to. Including my current one. There were a few in my elementary school. In the school I went to for 6th and 8th grade, there were a ton of annoying kids in the grade, especially a lot of the more extroverted girls and most of the boys (the reason I was friends with pretty much none of them, besides that they're not genuinely friendly). I was at an all-girls school in 7th grade, so pretty much everyone in the grade was annoying and dramatic. I go to an all-girls high school currently. There are a ton of annoying and basic kids there and I have very different interests from pretty much everyone in my school.

Bad teachers

There are plenty of these at my school. They either have completely boring and unoriginal lessons, disrespect students as if they have no rights, or both.

The worst teachers are the ones that just tell you what to do and not how to do it. My whole maths class is confused because of our teacher. Then she turns around and gives us piles of homework.

I feel your pain! This is my math teacher, and I'm only in 6th Grade. She also encourages us to ask questions, but when we do she humiliates us by saying "Um, you should know this" or something. And she CAN'T TEACH! Like, she goes WAY too fast (I understand it is a GEM class, but still! We're 11 and 12)! She'll be going over slopes, 2 minutes later she's done, everyone's confused as hell, and she gives us 4 incredibly difficult worksheets. I HATE MY MATH CLASS! - Absolite

I have plenty of these in my school, teachers beat the students in a very horrible manner, I remember when a girl in my class got 56 slaps for not putting a comma (, ) in computer programming.

Wow. I don't even think it's legal for teachers to hurt students anymore. That's harsh. - Absolite

Teacher tenure should be removed! Who else agrees with me?! This allows all these horrible teachers to get away with their faults without any fear of losing their jobs. SOME OF THEM SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN HIRED IN THE FIRST PLACE! I say what the government does is remove tenure, cause honestly, I don't give a crap if a teacher has been working 20 years if they are terrible at their job. To whoever is reading, I hope you have yourself the best day/night and love yourself.


The worst is when the teacher calls the names up to the front to recieve the exams, and you can't breathe and your heart is beating because you know you failed it...

I had a quiz every friday in my math grade 12 class, we never knew my final score, since the teacher never gave it back after marking the test

It makes me panic that when I get started in a test or quiz I just forget everything I studied.

Yup, when I get my test back, I pass out.

Access denied websites

One thing that pisses me of about this

-They Block pages that have flash games that are family friendly
-Porn sites are not blocked websites where I am in school districts


Happy Wheels is available... but not Roblox or Minecraft... logic please?

my school blocked cool math games but not classic reload, which you can play DOOM on, a rated M game!

My 6th and 8th grade school and my 7th grade grade school had tons of access denied websites. I couldn't even use YouTube (except in 6th grade) to listen to music. I found a way to use YouTube in 8th grade to listen to music, but it was on restricted mode and I couldn't find most songs I like. In my high school, there aren't as many, which is great.

Too much responsibility and pressure to do well when all you want to do is have fun

It's true... your college career depends on those 4 years. If my higher education was based upon my performance in middle school... I'd be at freggin' M. I. T. lol

School is supposed to be about learning things you will use in real life to get a good job. But it's actually about stressing yourself out and being graded on things you will never use.

This is so true! Everything depends on these 4 years. And I hate how grades determine your future! Like whose idea was it for 14-18 year-olds to suffer this hell?! Why can't we just enjoy instead of having to study all the time?!

You can only be a teenager once, highschool may enrich the experience of being a teen by surrounding you with friends and peers M. But there is an IMMENSE deal of social, academic, and in some cases sexual pressure. When all you want to do is stay home and watch T.V. your forced to go out and feel tons of pressure. When you just want to go to school and talk to other kids the whole "social ladder" stabs you in the back and dictates who you should and talk to. When you just want to go to a school dance without being pressured by the grinding "tradition" you realize unless you want to be shunned and labeled as uncool you can't say no! And when you just want to hang out with your squad you realize you are failing a class and need to study because you just bombed a quiz. GET THE POINT? HIGHSCHOOL IS TOO HIGH PRESSURE! In middle school you feel social stress, in college you feel academic, in highschool you are presented with both! Like seriously? It shouldn't be like this. Highschool ruins ...more

Teachers, principals, and other school authorities tell students to respect them but they are very abusive

they tell students to behave, keep quiet, but they are busy talking and shouting with each other regarding how to abuse a student. regarding the haircut, they are very strict too but when the security guards is bald and no balds allowed in the school, they should change it

That is screwed up. Lucky for me, my school isn't like that and what you said reminds me of a video I saw on You Tube. A 9 year old had a friend with cancer, so she shaved her head to show support. Unfortunately, this got her suspended and I was all like "what? " If I was at that school and had no hair for any reason whatsoever, I would be pissed off if I got suspended for it because that would ruin my record of never getting suspended. - Murvine_Taylor

I remember back when the principal assigned seats in the cafeteria and would punish us for using our Constitutional right of protests and petition.

When my teacher tells my class to be quiet, she SCREAMS. and she tells us that we're being rude when were eavesdropping on her conversations but she eavesdrops on ours. and what I hear them saying about us behind their backs is VERY rude. I really want to print this comment section and shove it in my teachers smug face. Ugh.

I remember being mocked by a teacher in front of the entire class, and he received no consequences for his actions even after my mother complained to the school about it!

The Contenders

Wannabe gangsters

One guys trousers fell down in class

Gangsters gangsta until the cockroach in the classroom crawls on the wall close to them

They think that showing their asses to the world and speaking like a bunch of illiterate dumbasses makes them tough

Loll, what is their life even

You're not in trouble but you did something wrong

I used to talk to my school friend in class lots and I never got caught talking to him

I put ketchup under the toilet seat. It was hilarious

What's wrong with that?

That's not a bad thing because then you wouldn't get in trouble

When people get neglected just because they are different in some way

This does happen to me constantly, even though I'm in good shape, near perfect health, and very smart, but simply because I am shy, serious about school, help out friends when they need me, and don't like "cool" students who purposely make other kids feel bad, I am neglected and treated as an outsider, just because I like to play the good guy.

If those kids think that they can bully others well their wrong. And people that are getting bullied should stick up for their self.

I have friends in school, but I have barely anything in common with ANYONE. And a lot of times when I try to talk, they keep talking with my other tablemates. I hate it so much and I think I need to learn to be more assertive. Plus, in freshman year, I was rarely included by my friends at school.

I'm shorter than average and shy but I'm also smart. My grades are excellent. I'm sick of being an outcast just because I am so quiet! And the stupid popular girls think I'm deaf because today two were laughing at me so I turned around and gave them the "I heard that! " stare.


They spread a rumor that I was gay, almost ruined my life till I screamed out in class to a guy "F*** you bitc* step up! " and know people hate me because they think that my EX didn't cheat on me when I found out she made out with another guy and their telling my new girlfriend I'm just using her... Yup life sucks... :'(

Kids commit suicide over drama. Its pretty sad it's kind of like bullying.

I thought I could trust one of my friends with a secret. Next thing I know, half the class is loudly asking me to ask a girl out, when said girl is sitting 3 feet away from me. Needless to say, she said no.

In my small-town high school there is so much drama going around it's unreal. People talking down to each other, gossiping. Every single day. Girls will pretend to be friends with another girl, and then when she isn't in the class they talk about how fat and ugly she is. It's ridiculous

Wannabe rappers

It's a nightmare at an all white school

Hey hey, hey hey haiyyo wassup everybody, stand up stand up. I'm rapping right now and this is very stupid.

It's all the kids who are "popular".

This is even worse when 95% of the people in your school are white

The popularity list

The whole concept of popularity needs to be destroyed at schools, because no, you don't go to school to be popular, being prom queen does not get you to a college or impress anyone in the real world so, if you're popular, and you're reading this, at least try to befriend a normal kid with a normal life and stop being a fake

I gave up on popularity a long time ago, it would be nice to feel accepted, but the things you have to do to get their are ridiculous and are against my morals

I always wanted to rip that thing to shreds. It is the most pointless thing ever

The sad truth is nearly all the popular people (not saying everyone) are rude.


Algebra is pretty easy once you know how it works. I did it in middle school anyways

I get distracted a lot when I'm trying to learn

I'm a special-ed class called Pre-Algebra. It's like a class where it helps you prepare for Algebra.

Where do we use algebra in our lives we have calculators for that dumb school

First year algebra I can let slide, but second year and beyond is mostly useless to people not wanting related majors.

Bad words

Once you get in middle school everyone starts saying bad things to one another and it is wrong.

I hate when the students curse. They think that cursing makes them cool. The students will never say a sentence without cursing. It aggravates me very much.

This should be high on this list.

I HATE IT WHEN THE STUDENTS ARE CURSING! The students can't say a sentence without cursing. It's so aggravating.


My high school hallways had scaffolding everywhere the school is old, and getting replaced in the 2022-2023 school year, the scaffolding took up so much room witch was super crowded during class change time

Especially them kids who will do anything in the hallway but walk...

Why I almost got trampled coming back inside from courtyard

At My school they are overcrowded


They're a waste of space. Send them to rehab, not school.

I got in trouble one time because they were smoking next to me when I was walking to class and I got suspended when they tried to give me some, keep in mind I'm an honors student so the five day suspension that made my gpa drop from a 4.5 to a 3.67 from missing class gives me some bias to this question.

I've seen some students smoking weed or vaping at the marketplace just outside of my school, or at parties. First of all, I'm ashamed that many people are fine about this, and secondly, it's sad that these people are basically ruining their future.

They should be homeschooled, not on the roads.


Most people at my school are pretty accepting, but some students are still pretty homophobic

People treat you like a gimmick, like you're a different species. No, I won't tell you how I can do that to myself or how I can disappoint my family like that. Because people who say that need to go away and re-evaluate their own lives.

Also, telling me I need jesus in my life isn't going to change my lesbianism, just saying.

I go to a religious school and thankfully, this doesn't really happen here. Most are accepting of different sexual orientations and genders or lack thereof. Still, I hear kids (mostly the younger ones) joking about it as if it's funny and cool to do so - and I'm like, "STOP." So stupid and horrible, especially when they pretend to be innocent once I confront them

Strange that people think the only way to cure homosexuality is worshipping a 30-something almost naked man nailed to a cross and being whipped by other men...

People with disabilities get picked on

I have autism, moderate depression/anxiety, and ADHD. I'm in 7th grade. back when I was in 4th grade, people rarely picked on me. I guess that's because they felt sorry for me. I never really liked my friends being al baby voice nice to me, and wanted honest opinions. but back then, those were happy times. but it 6th grade, it turned into a living hell, which is why I have my depression. people, have made fun of me and called me "a retarted little *ussy who needs to grow some balls", "whiney". I was kicked, pushed really hard into a locker, given the finger. my 15 year-old brother years ago was tied to a tree with one of his friends and left to rot for for 2 hours till they finally escaped, I was chased into a stall and had my foot pounded to a pulp. the list goes on and on. that's why I have depression. I sometime lie down and think, "why haven't I committed suicide yet? " and then I realize: "it would break my mom's heart, to relive that moment ...more

I have adhd and several learning disabillities and people always talk about me being stupid :-(

Tell those people to look at themselves. (Cause they're the ones who are stupid)

I have minor learning disabilities and problems with memory due to my epilepsy. In middle school & high school, most of the teachers refused to accommodate me, acted like I was an inconvenience and didn't deserve to have their attention at all. Some of the teachers actively ridiculed me, gave me assignments that were too difficult for me to complete, talked down to me, and basically just made my life hell. I was ecstatic to graduate high school in 2011.

I've got autism. People picked on me in 6th grade like crazy! I'm in high school now, but people still talk trash about autism. They say stuff to each other like "stop being autistic". I'm surprised that I survived middle school without committing suicide. Things have gotten a lot better for me. My only problem is fitting in. People don't exclude me, but I don't like how anyone acts anymore. I don't like what makes people cool in high school. I just have a problem with the way the world rotates.


I live in a really republican, white area of Wisconsin so yeah

Lots of gays actually pick on me because of my religion and I am half indigenous mexican wit some afro cuban and half Lebanese & other people would pick on me I tell a teacher, I actually get in trouble for wasting their time so I beat the kid up and they don't get in trouble at all

I also have autism, ADHD, dylexia, depression, anxiety which gives more problems

Many people also ask random black people for n-word pass which is retarded as having sex with a snowman in winter across the police department and childcare center

Many people also assume people in India speak Islamic which is stupid I mean are these people high on the vape they snort in the bathroom plus people even say Pakistan, Afghanistan and India are all the same I mean what?

People also make fun of Chinese saying ching-chong and that crap

I even got in trouble because I wear a hood so actually police would go up to ...more

Based on my experiences at secondary school, there were always cliques who picked on (mostly Asian) other ethnicities. One of my best friends constantly got called a 'dirty paki' by this cesspool of racists who undoubtedly adopted half of these opinions from their parents, Despite the fact that numerous friends of this guy had told teachers of these insults, and more often than not they would go off with no more than a measly warning, likely to do it again in future. Racist supremacists suck.

Yeah people should stop insulting Pakistan simply because they are with china

Bruh my science teacher is white and he teaches at a school where most are asians and he would constantly pick on this korean girl and tell her she's japanese not korean the poor girl even fell into a depression because she thought she was adopted...even my science teacher is a doctor that doesn't mean he gets to accuse someone's race and tell them what they look like

This one girl who was Asian had a dog. She told the class it died. Then this idiot said, "It's for the best, you probably would've eaten it."


Yeah I was rarely late for school or class, I remember some students being late everyday

Late for EVEN 1 MILLISECOND counts as a tardy at my high school

I was Tardy because a stupid teacher wouldn't let me use the bathroom even though I had to go THIS BAD.
I Peed for 2 minutes, then I got late because next class was far away.

The teachers

My humanities teacher is strict she always shouts at us and never EVER been nice to us

Yeah some were kinda mean, my art teacher was kinda mean
