Ten Worst Things About High School


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Dumbass Students

There are so many ignorant idiots wasting class time and doing annoying dumb things.

I know right some at my school asked my humanities teacher how do we know the earths not flat and someone else ask my maths teacher is it true that every thing can divid and go into 2. I mean come on

There was someone in my class that got a pen stuck in his butt in the middle of class

Kids in my class waste time calling out annoying jokes such as "9+10" or "Deez nuts" while passing notes and throwing scrunched up papers at each other. - Lunala

62 Athletics

Actually, many schools have compulsory athletics. My school makes me do sports every single day and, I have to say, it might be the worst thing that's ever happened to me.

I really dislike my P. E teacher during high school, he always pushed us the boys to play soccer, while I and a few friends who can't do it well get mocked!

Maybe I should be glad PE is not required every year in my high school... - Turkeyasylum

Or, the girls who just stand there and talk during PE

63 School Lunch

What I'm horrible at cooking but I can still cook better than the cooks.

Same and I can cook a simple meatball and it taste lot better than the lunch ladies! - InfernoTopTenners

The school lunches are small, over priced, and to make it even worse, our school is a closed campus, meaning that you can't leave for lunch without written permission. - Turkeyasylum

They have these tables that are long and people who sit there get uncomfortable the teachers eat like kings and queens with proper tables

Every time I eat at my Elementary school, it tastes good but some time later my stomache starts aching like crazy! Sometime's I even force myself to eat the food because it's so damn gross.

64 Preps

Hated preps so much. They are usually just as bad if not worse than the other students but because of either there mom being a teacher, them being suck ups, or rich kids they get everything givin to them. They always wear bright hollister and abercrombie and I hate it. - Chris-1

To be honest I sometimes feal preppy so this is mean

They should die in my opinion - RoseCandyMusic

I hate them with a purpose, Abercrombie wearing swaggots

65 Justin Bieber wannabes

Thankfully at Troy we don't have those. BUT THE PEP RALLIES ARE OFF THE HOOK CRAZY! - AmtrakHan6993

Are you mad! "

66 Feeling Left Out

When everyone has their own groups of friends when you first get there...

The nerds at school stick to me like a magnet, and I can't get them to go away. This pulled me down to a whole new social level, so low that I got left out of everything

67 Homecoming

A huge waste of time. All it is is an opportunity for people to wear clothing that would get them shot if they wore in public, and preps to crow about school spirit. - Darrell

Mine literally stank. The guys (as in boys) did not wear deodorant and started sweating profusely. Then they had to lift their arms up while dancing. Did I tell you I am a short female?

I saw a bunch of couples grinding on each other at my school's homecoming dance. I'm actually serious.

Homecoming and prom: An excuse to get a boy/girlfriend, and to wear Serena-esque clothing. - RiverClanRocks

68 Student Council

As if school needs another popularity contest. - Darrell

teacher's, professor's, principal's secret soldiers and they can't resist an angry adult and can't protect fellow students for their rights - ronluna

I'm a school council member and 1 we never really have meetings because the teachers don't really care about our opinions but when they want help from us they are telling us to vote for preppy spotty teenagers who are rude and push you about on the road

It's so fake! None of the students get to control anything important!

69 Jocks

Better to be stoner than jocks - ronluna

I know a bunch of ones at my school. I'm friends with them. Not all of them are bad. - 906389

These people...
Oh these people... - MoldySock

There's a difference between a regular athlete and a jock.
A jock is an athlete who is arrogant, full of themself, prey on non athletic students, and are incredibly obnoxious.
A regular athlete however, plays their heart out, cares about his/her teammates and other students, doesn't seek attention/ look to be popular, and are more likely to succeed in life post high school.

70 Not having any classes with your friends

That's why I feel lonely even though I do have acquaintances. Most, if not all, of my friends don't even go to my school. I don't feel too sorry for myself, though, but there will be times when I do. - Murvine_Taylor

This happens loads of times! - Harry Potter

73 Prom

This was the worst day of my life. - aeromaxx777

When you have a group of girls chasing after you. Thankfully, I am single and nowhere near prom dates and stuff, lol. - AmtrakHan6993

I agree, proms are scarier than monsters.

I'm a single lady.

75 "Shoe Game"

Alright. so the dude I went to homecoming with was kinda weird. I asked my friend if I should say yes when he asked me or not. and get this, she said "you should go with him! He totally has the best shoe game in the school." literally what we go to a catholic school and everyone is dressed the same. is shoe game even a thing?

Kids bragging about the fact that they own 919182991321177894104 pairs of adidas/nike - Lunala

I get it having a fancy pair of Huaraches is a big thing but seriously dude..your feet.. what if you have some crusty athletes foot or that persons face is ugly asf.Now I know why people always say don't keep your head down and always look up.

76 School Spirit

Constantly are you forced to be happy for your school when really the place to the GROUND!

My school sucks... Why would I want to act like it's so amazing when it definitely is not

Maybe I WOULD have school spirit if you fixed the other 198 AND COUNTING problems with the school that are on this list.

Something my school overemphasizes on. - Anonymousxcxc

77 Morning Announcements

*BEEP* Good morning!! Please be quiet while I read you meeting times for a bunch of clubs you don't care about. Then, Eleanor and Sarah will tell you how much you're being overcharged for prom tickets, and then the President of Student Council will lead us in the pledge of allegiance because she likes to hear herself talk. Finally, I'll tell you how badly the sports teams got killed last night. **BEEP** - Darrell

Just talk about something important for once - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The pledge is alright. Wasting class time isn't.

Girls volleyball is the longest out of all the announcements, it is boring
Kids who don't rise for the pledge

78 Fire Drills

Even though they do get us outta class, they give me an instant headache, plus they always seem to happen when its half a degree or 114 degrees Fahrenheit.

Close your ears, follow people you know. Wear perfect clothing. Instant class-skip.

They also happen when it is hot, and I get a headache and sunburn because of it.

My school has the most annoying fire alarm in the world.

79 Kids who use the "N" word all the time

The African Americans always say it. They realize they're insulting their ancestors right? - HeavyDonkeyKong

Yeah, I hate that. I can't stand it when my fellow African Americans call each other that. Call ME that and they'll be in the hospital,

Every sentinces they say have the n word in it is so annoying!

The problem is not the "N" word, the problem is that it is held up to this high pedestal of being a swear word, but then we have all these other racist and offensive terms that we can get away with using. Can anyone tell me about the "Z" word? Granted most of these slurs are not used as often, but it's just the point that either all of them are okay, or none of them are okay.

It's the black kids who say it

80 People talking about how "black" they are

There was this idiot 6th grader on my bus last year that tried to act cool by singing along to thrift shop, and emphasizing the f-bombs. News flash: you're an upper middle class white kid who goes to an advanced school. You're about as far from gangsta as you can get!

One idiot at my lunch table yells at my best friend for being "too white". That kid, is a rich, white, smart kid who is really far from black. This is the kind I deal with because "black people are cooler". News flash, IT'S JUST A COLOR

One of the more annoying things about high school
