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

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Being A Virgin

everybody's bitchy in this matter. hey, I'm still a virgin! and what's the matter with that? and in the future we will be get laid like aman28 said - ronluna

What's wrong with not getting some?!? I don't wanna get someone pregnant! I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE A DAD! - HeavyDonkeyKong

what makes it worse is the people who lie about getting some because that makes you feel like your the only one not getting laid - aman28

I used to date this freshman, but then when we were doing FaceTime after school, we did a game of "Truth or Dare". He dared me to show him my boobs and other private areas, even my underwear.

We broke up the day before Valentine's Day. My emotions were a mix of sadness/happiness. I was sad, because I didn't want to be a third-wheel again. I was happy, because I didn't have to worry about him being perverted to me again.

Before we broke up, he told me that he wanted to have sex with me. But, I was like "Hell no", even though he's 15 and I'm 16 (I live in the US and minor sex is considered illegal).

I didn't want to get pregnant in the first place. I'm too young to be a mom! - Stazemar000

22 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.

The kids voting this have to deal with those words.
Also my Coach's no-cuss rule is SO BAD. He thinks "Stupid" is a cuss. - BlueBobYT

23 Assemblies

Most are boring but at least they get you out of class

These, especially on behavior, band concerts, sports, proms, etc, put me to sleep.

They are only good for getting you out of class, otherwise I would just be to sleep.

We have these pep assemblies at my high-school. It's very noisy - Stazemar000

At My school they are overcrowded - christangrant

One-systems in schools suck - Ziffe

25 Pep Rallies

i used to literally get sick at these things i would get dizzy from all the screaming, stinking teenagers. i eventually started skipping them. i would actually rather go sit in dirty school bathroom than go tto them!!!! - luvtoread

I absolutely hate pep rallies with a passion! They are do loud and pointless. I hate when everyone is screaming and dancing. It makes me mad. The cheerleaders are not even hot ( There is even one GUY in it). So me, my friend and only about fifty other kids in the whole school go to the cafe during the Pep rally. We are the smart kids in our school!

I don't think I have pep rallies but if I go to one I would be traumatized. I hate crowds AND loud noises. It doesn't help that people would scream for no reason. - MusicalPony

What disgusting things. It's more like a brainwashing ceremony than anything else. Cheerleaders are sex symbols, the music is so loud it gives you a headache and the whole thing is boring and pointless. I hated these things so much-thank god I graduated, no more of this crap! :D

The only good thing about pep rallies is you have shorter school periods. So use that to your advantage. Still h8 pep rallies because of those screaming demons. - AmtrakHan6993

26 Unnecessary Amount of Homework

I get that homework is essential in student learning-by doing it at home, we review and sometimes preview the materials. However, I just had so many classes where I had gratuitous amount of homework. And to make it worse, other kids just BSed it and got full credit. I am somewhat against standardized testing, but I really don't think unnecessary homework assignments should hinder students' lives outside school. Just please give us enough but not too much homework. Please!

It's like each teacher thinks that the only class in school that you take is theirs, so they bombard you with piles of homework. It sucks!

Too much English and Math homework EVERY WEEK

I just don't do it... The teachers are not smart enough to actually check to see if u did it

27 Racism

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.

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."

Our school bully called this black kid a 'black guy' and then I just wanted to punch the bully in the face because of that. I hope this doesn't happen to you if you are a black person, but when the bully did call the black kid that, he got into trouble. Now this is making me disappointed to be a white kid.

I have a friend who's Filipino. Once one girl called her "chinky eyes".

28 Cliques

Oh. God. I hate cliques SO BAD!

So here's how they are divided at my school...

The Jock Guys: All of the guys who are athletic. That's literally the only a way a guy can become popular. By their athletic abilities. All of the girls (both popular and unpopular, with the exception of me and a few others) like them. It's insane. Most of them are mean, and it's EXTREMELY rare to find a NICE popular guy.

The Jock Girls: The girls who are athletic. They don't exactly care about looks as much as some of the popular girls do, but some of them do. They usually are found talking to the popular guys and the other popular girls. If an unpopular girl is actually ATHLETIC, (like me), they will get criticized just because they aren't popular. They won't even be considered athletic, even when they actually are.

The Girly Girls
All they care about is their hair, their clothes, their nails, their purses, and boys. Literally. That's IT. I am actually a tomboy here, so ...more - Minecraftcrazy530

That stinks. My school isn't as bad about this but I do sense some sort of drama/clique thing going on at the school (which I never pay attention to). Yeah at least your school doesn't sound as bad as my school in terms of school spirit, running (during gym class), sports, and "greatness". Literally my middle school shoves the concept of greatness down your throat every single day, so much that it makes my brain want to implode. Also for the announcements why do the sports teams get a special announcement time every day while the other clubs rarely get mentioned. Then there's gym class where every class in an outdoor unit you have to run a lap around the quarter mile long track, walk a lap, then run another lap. Also in like the first month of school I'm pretty sure we ran like 4 miles if adding up all of the times running on the school track and also running a couple of courses just a little over a mile long and today when we had to run like half a mile. Yeah that's my school. - Anonymousxcxc

I was friends with a girl since Pre-K. We were such good friends. We would always talk to each other and sit next to each other at lunch. She would always laugh at my jokes and I'd laugh at hers. Then, in 3rd grade, two new kids came: a boy and a girl. Their names started with an A and a B. My friend's name started with a C. In 4th grade, they realized that and became best friends. My best friend called me a jerk and obnoxious for no reason, I was being super nice. She always hung out with them and I was left behind. They are all nice now but they don't really consider me as a good friend. I cannot wait until I'm in middle school (I'm in 5th). I watched Mean Girls and I like the people there (except the Plastic "leader") and I think the teacher is nice. I can't wait! :) I will get to leave those old friends and get new people.

There is another group in my school that I call "The Group." It's all the people who are really rude and act like they're not and ...more - maddyparrot22

Honey enjoy middle school while you can because next year I'll be going to the level of schooling that I will call The Supreme Fire Nation Terror. - Anonymousxcxc

My clique is so unique it deserves a category of itself! So here's the cliques at my school.

Athletic boys: Most popular guys in the school. Most are nice, well to me. I'm close to being as popular as them but I'm not athletic so I'm not one of them. Some, if them are mean, especially the ones in High School.

Athletic Girls: Some are popular and some are not. Some are girly girls, others just don't even care at all.

Prissy Popular Girls: If your unpopular and you so much as say one world to them, they'll accuse you of hitting on them and get their boyfriend of 1 week to beat you up. They whine about every single little thing! They also have super good hearing too since they tell everyone, especially me to turn their music down. Even when I'm at the lowest volume but still able to hear the music, they tell me to "turn that satanic mess down! " But they put their stupid pop songs all the way up. They never get in trouble!

Nerds: People don't mess ...more - SirSkeletorThe3rd

You do realize you just said you beat up a retarded and suicidal kid, right? - Donut

Talk about the game Bully, lol. - AmtrakHan6993

29 The Teachers

No comment

Snitchy ones, bitchy ones, dickbags, and emotionals. They can either be cool, or just terrible.


30 All the Credits You Are Required to Have

English shouldn't be required at all because all the English you learn after Middle school is literature and I don't need literature for science and math. Grammar, the useful part of English, is done after 8th.

Majority of the schools require Language Arts to be taken all 4 years. I don't give a damn about essays and speeches, I am not even going to major in Writing, why should I care if I need to take Language Arts all 4 years?

Physical education is a requited course at my school. WHY?!?

At my high school, freshman are supposed to have 6 credits, sophmores should have 12, juniors should have 18, and seniors need 22. - Stazemar000

31 Oral Presentations

Everyone stares and snickers if you made a mistake, and make dumb comments thinking they're funny and cool - Bec

My worst fear is laughing incontrollably in front of everyone /: - PinkflASHES

Worst thing ever. I'd rather die

Yeah these stink. I'd rather be burnt to a crisp by Shego from Kim Possible or beaten up by Stanley Pines from Gravity Falls than ever have to do one of these. - Anonymousxcxc

32 Popular Kids

Some are popular for the right reasons as in they are respectful to adults and students, they think about their friends before themselves, keep their grades up without cheating, they give advice, they aren't obnoxious/seek attention, and don't start conflict. These are the kinds of students that will be accepted into college and have a good life after high school. The bad kind are the exact opposite of this and life won't look too good for them after high school.

Sorry, but it just seems super egotistical. Double if they whisper to their friends immediately after.

Sometimes nice, sometimes jackasses.

School should destroy cliques like this,but nooo,they just let feelings get hurt and other bad things happen!

33 Animal Abuse In Some Schools

There Is nothing worse than animal abuse in any situation, whoever does this and enjoys this deserves to become homeless bums, and burn in hell for the rest of eternity. I'm passionate about wildlife.

Last year I did an after school club where we raised turtles and released them in their natural habitats when they got bigger and it was so nice. I even got to take one home over spring break (there were two named Squirt and Crab Cakes)

I can't stand animal cruelty/abuse. It really shocks me and breaks my heart. I know I'm an animal lover but that is disgusting

I HATE animal abuse. - 906389

34 Bratty kids getting special attention from the teachers

I am one of the smartest kids in the school, with an IQ of 162. Note, I'm not bragging, because smart kids don't get JACK at my school. No, really, to 95% of the teachers I am practically invisible to the naked eye. Whereas the kids who make all the noise and give all of the other students crap about doing well, existing, etc. get ALL of the perks, and ALL OF THE GOOD GRADES THAT MANY INTROVERTS STRUGGLE FOR! I have a 3.99 GPA and I still get good grades regardless, but the teachers are constantly screaming at me whenever I get tired of the morons in my class not finding an answer, and after that, I am called selfish! I'm not trying to be selfish, all I would like are a few good grades, that's all. If you can relate to this, please like.

P.S. I am also bullied too. Don't feel bad though.

Yes. Teachers give them the time of day and often don't give them punishment. They're just getting attention and annoying the hell out of the other kids!

It remembers me a boy of my class, His name actually means attention & He is the best attention seeker I ever see, He just shows his charm & easily escapes from Punishment. I hate him and excepting me Every girl found him cool - Righteous

In 6th grade all of the cool kids would get the most attention for all the "good things" they do. On Wednesdays we would have a assembly where two students would get deans list (or awards) most of the kids who got in trouble would get the deans list. But when I haven't done anything bad I get about no shoutouts or deans list for the things I did. I even got a 97 or 99% on my science test once and I got no deans list or shoutouts ;~;. I hate this generation. - SapphireStar

35 Getting that one substitute teacher everybody hates

Me for science. For like the past 3-4 weeks because the normal teacher is recovering from surgery, we got the sub who no one likes for well until mid-October. I mean I don't really like this sub either, but she isn't entirely terrible. She's nice to me. - Anonymousxcxc

YES this happens every time, by end of term even atheists prayed he would lewve

36 Teachers that complain about wasting time but give long lectures that waste time

Yeah, so true. My English teacher always goes on about how we are spoiling ourselves and how we should study instead of having fun and how stupid and ignorant we are... Jesus! Have you realised how much time you are wasting? Just get on with the damned lesson! I hate such teachers so much. They are actually doing what they tell us not to do! It makes me so angry, I wanna bash their head in a ' wall!

My French teacher does that a lot for 3 years.

So true. They complain about wasting time, but they do it themselves with doing lectures. How hypocritical - MangoFruitJuice

I actually like that.By the time my teacher finishes,her entire period is over.

37 Annoying Catchphrases

Yes like YOLO and laugh out loud - JollyRancher

Anyone who says swag and yolo repeatedly should be knocked upside the head with a shovel

I used to have a lot of catch phrases...

Dabbing, "Cash me outside howbowdah" and "Rain drop drop top" are overused at the moment. - Lunala

39 Mean People
40 Religious Extremists

This girl at my school was trying to force a student to believe in God... In case you have not noticed, America has the freedom of religion. Due to that, I do not care if you worship a potato chip, just do not try to change someone just because they do not believe in the same things as you do. - LostDream258

Ugh this one girl who my sister met (a narcissist that no one liked) was completely insulting my sister's religion just because it was different than her's while getting everything about it completely wrong by saying things like how in this particular brat's view it's apparently similar to Islam (when it's not) during this Girl Scout camping trip (from when my sister was in like 8th grade) or whatever so my sister was crying so she and the other girls in the troop moved tables so the bratty girl told the troop leader that everyone was being rude to HER so the girl actually made my sister apologize for something she didn't do. Yeah basically I hate over religious people who can't seem to accept that other people don't believe in everything that you do believe in. Dear god hopefully that doesn't happen to me this year. - Anonymousxcxc

I am a Jesus freak but I don't enforce but only preach. If you don't believe me fine, Actually the Catholics are the ones being mean to me (not all just those in my school) the Christians and atheists are cool. I read the Bible but a teacher of mine had me sent outside. I was praying and someone said "stand up and pray with us" I said "Don't disturb me I won't pray with you and your catholicism" but then again I was in trouble.

The kids at my school who are jesus freaks and what not seem like they have sticks up their butts and they never have any fun because they are always praying or begging for forgiveness like damn loosen up and go have some fun get your nose out of the bible and go interact with humans who gives a damn if you "sin" you're only a kid once.

When I am talking about how the universe was created I say big bang but my classmates forced me to belive that some god created it 10,000 years ago. - MChkflaguard_Yt
