Top 10 Worst Things About Middle School

The Top Ten
1 Homework

Don't even get me start on this. Teachers give you 2 piles of homework and then asked why do you look tired, like seriously, I'm stressing out

I maybe very smart and like learning and school, but ironically, homework is possibly the worst thing in not only school, but the WORLD! ALL I want to do after school is play my computer or go to sleep, but then I have to do some gosh darn aggravating "math pages" or homework on the computer that isn't close to fun. I've actually heard that students in countries that have LESS homework do BETTER than kids with more homework. If everyone hates homework, then why do teachers give it ALMOST EVERY DAY?! GOSH!

I go school from 8:30am till 3:50pm and then come home with stacks of homework to complete for THE NEXT DAY! Like wow! And then I don't get anything in lesson because the teachers speaks so fast and whizzes through it and then when we tell her we don't get it she is like "Well this is easy research it at home..anyways we will come back to it next year" WELL what's the point of 3 years of GCSE might as well get it over and done with it in 1 year if we will recao nearly every topic next-year then the year after that and end up never coming to it. Then we also have snakey people who act as though they own the place urghhgghghgh and monday mornings are a PAIN!

My math teacher ALONE is making us do least thirty minutes of JUST math homework each night Monday through Thursday. I swear, I don't think ANY of the teachers consult with each other about how much homework they give.

2 Monday Mornings

so exhausting, I mean, at least start the day off by telling kids we only learn till lunch and go home. That's easier for us to manage the schedule AGAIN!

Actually, I think Tuesday's are worse. At least you're in a good mood from the weekend and you feel refreshed and you can have a productive day. Tuesday's you are grumpy from Monday and the weekend is miles away. BOO! But I still dislike Mondays

Sometimes, I can't get my sleeping schedule right due of Monday's. It's the day of the week when I'm so unprepared. Plus, the word sounds so boring.

This is how I normally feel about morning wake-ups in high school...

Mondays = This sucks!

Tuesdays = Neutral

Wednesdays = OK about it

Thursdays = Feelin' pretty good

Fridays = YAY! Today's Friday!

3 Crush Breaks Up With You

Yeah. By sixth grade I was on my first girlfriend that I began dating at the end of the previous year. Her name was Sarah. Within about six months of the new school year, she decided to break up with me, even though I still liked her. She started going out with this boy, Matt, who was one of my friends, who I now despise for "stealing" my girlfriend!
Well... apparently Matt's history, because I heard one of her "besties" gossiping about how Sarah had had her first kiss with this boy name Jeremy (who I also hate) at the dance.

How do I even start? I liked one guy in 7th grade and a bunch of people thought he liked me. I thought that too but it ends up, the summer after 7th he hooks up with like 5 girls. Than in 8th he became a completely different person and I hate him now.

I cry sometimes. When your boyfriend goes homeschool, breaks up with you saying it'll be too hard to date when he's homeschooled, and starts dating another girl right after he leaves you, it hurts.

My crush said he didn't want to talk to me so I avoided him in 7th grade. I'm in 8th grade now and I still haven't talked to him...Should I talk to him?

4 Cafeteria Food

In elementary school they used to make you eat it, but now in middle school they don't care. I know because one day I had a fasting for my church and they didn't bat an eye.

This vote is just for the comment:

The teachers say school lunch has a lot of variety. I say that's true, I've counted at least 3/4 of the periodic table.

To this day I still have no idea what is in our school's salsberry steak. I swear a found a little bone in mine once. This is why I always bring my own lunch.

Once I found HAIR in my spaghetti I told the teachers but, they were to busy texting anyway.

5 No More Recess

I was sad that there was not any Recess, I always had to miss Recess in 1st-5th grade because of how much I was bullied.

My school has recess but you need 2 "school dollars" and you only get 5-10 minutes of it instead of 30.

Good thing Middle Schools in England and Wales are primary schools they have playtime.

In elementary I would have 20 min of recess now that I'm in middle school I get like 6 or 10 min BRUHH!

6 Hot Teachers You Couldn't Have

Oh yeah? That hot teacher is MY MUM and I have to deal with every boy liking her and telling ME how hot my mum is. Plain embarrassing. Oh, and whoever has a crush on a teacher is just creepy

What kind of dumbass added this into the list? Why is it number seven?

Seriously? Who the duck added this on the list

Seriously. Real world problem right here.

7 Everyone Turns Into a Jerk

Ever since grade 5, I had good times with all my classmates. but when grade 7 came, I always felt like I'm the only one student who is a lonely survivor. my classmates are still smart (the mean smart witty people), but they don't really respect others' differences, instead, they give heavy judgement to each of their classmates and I'm one of those unlucky students who got heavy judgement, because I was born a right brainer and never liked learning that much. I'm still surviving here in grade 7, so bring it on!

This happened to the best looking girl at my school. She was so sweet in elementary, but when middle school came, she became a jerk who was only interested in popular kids PERIOD. She recently refused to even sit near me in science at her BEST FRIEND'S request, openly stating she hated me, while fully aware I could hear her. I was pretty upset, but I didn't let it show.

This should be Number One, especially since it seemed to be experiencing it when I was in middle school. And the worst part of school is bullying. All who are against bullying should never suck it up and deal with it. The ones who should it up are bullies are their supporters. After all, social Darwinism is for losers.

In elementary school, everyone is secure, playful, optimistic, and fun. But in middle school, everyone changes. 8th graders bully and "roast" 6th graders, boys make fun of homosexual people, overuse of social media, depression, girls and boys talk about their crushes, and friends not being able to hang out with me because they're out with their girlfriends and boyfriends.

8 Too Many Projects

3 Projects in less than a week, every week, is killing me.

I have an entire french project I need to do, a math test coming monday and a language reading assignment soo many projects

I have a class where all we do is projects!

9 Boring Classes

1st period: Math, boring
2nd period: English, boring
3rd period, band, interesting
4th period, boring rotating class period, take your picks of sci, ss, English or math
5th, boring science
6th, social studies, mildly interesting
7th, culinary, for a cooking class we don't really do much cooking.

I hate having to be in classes for over an hour doing nothing but taking notes (Aka doodling) and listening to the teacher drone on and on about useless things.

In online classes, I turned off the camera so that everyone can't see me drooling...

Poetry is the most useless class to exist.

10 Immature Classmates

I lost the great time I had in 7th grade. I had friends including a better PE gang, Theatre and PE class, relationships with girls, cool teachers, and a lot of good things last year. But now I can't do these things anymore as most of my friends are separated, and I can't go to PE and Theatre this year because "tHeY aRe NoT oFfErEd FoR eIgHt GrAdErS", and I am exploding with many tests/quizzes per week that made me worry about grades except for algebra, which I was really good at by getting hundreds.
Even worse, I had to sit with an idiotic group at my Communications class, who always spread false rumors about me including that I'm "gay" even though I'M NOT. Every time I mention something, they go like "OH YOU LIKE LIL NAS X!", even though I don't. I'm tired of hearing it every day and it's getting old. They yelled out the false rumor a few times. They also have other lies about me such as making love with old women and that I'm a noob on Fortnite, even though I don't play the game ...more

I'm trying to eat lunch and all of a sudden across the room at least 20 people go; "OOH'. I don't care if Brad like Jenna or Stacy is dating whoever, let's just eat! It's even worse when no one is listening to the teacher like let him/her do his/her job!

This see should be at least #3! There's always got be this group of idiots making repetitive jokes and snorting laughs. Then somebody always spits in the laugh.

This happens to me every single day! Half of the class repeats the same jokes over and over non-stop while I am the one actually trying to get work done!

The Contenders
11 Stress

I miss a week of school because I went to florida and I have a lot of missing assignments that came out of no were.

Yes when get behind and you have so many missing assignments or when you did terrible on a test

Bro I'm an eighth grader and we have to do PRE SAT like what the truck

My head hurts!

12 Suddenly Everything You Do Matters

If I miss ONE homework assignment, 5 points are deducted from the homework grade and can affect your overall grade as well as getting in trouble by your parents. Same with tests and projects. I hate this stress.

Miss one assignment = Automatic C

Get 100% on the most critical test of the year = Grade goes up 0.1%


What does a stupid letter written on a dead tree do to me? Nothing

13 The Teachers Are Strict

My science teacher's on crack. She yells at students too much and yet she still has vocal chords

These teachers yell at us all the time for exact reason.

My middle school teach Mrs Jensen I wanted to say I thought that I would love her but she was one of those spec ed teacher that do not tolerate shenanigans but though that instead of calmly talking to me/seclusion rooms/very serious behavioral interventions plans! Unlike that she just dragged me out of that class with her r180 and took me straight towards her home room class to scream/yell at me very hard very epic tongue 👅 lashing those flashbacks I still did never not forget about that love _ KB

14 Bullies

If you are bullied, I feel exteremely sorry you. Here my story, in fourth grade, I brought a doll named Fufu (I had it for 7 years). But this popular girl (her name is amanda) with other popular girls stole it and ripped Fufu's arm. I quickly took my sewing kit and tried to attach it. But she took it away again and threw her in the sewers. I didn't talk for weeks. But my friend told Amanda how much it meant to me. In 5th grade, Amanda apologized to me bought a new one that looked similar to fufu. I played with it. But, I will always miss the original Fufu

They don't even insult you directly, they just annoy the crap out of you and make you feel insecure.

Guys in sixth grade are complete jerks. The later years they're much friendlier.

Yeah, middle school was jerky.

15 Crazy Teachers

My 7th grade math teacher has pink stuffed animals everywhere in her room, it's creepy. (I find her dull and she teaches things ten times harder than how they really are, but that's not the point). Seriously she has these Pink Panthers in the back of her room and they seem depressed based on how they're arranged, plus I think her pink Minnie Mouse stuffed animal is out to get me. Though if someone accidentally touches one of them then I heard that she will get insanely mad. Like yeesh lady just don't have your creepy pink stuffed animals in your room then.
Ms. Anonymous.

My teacher is crazy, she can't even argue with the students because she's scared to, and she wants us to do 80 squats in a minute and run around the field 5 times when it's 50 degrees outside.

One of the art teachers at my school is insane and gets angry over everything. Once she told me off for standing next to the library door

My 7th grade social studies teacher had a crush on me. She called me her "baby" and also wrote it in my yearbook!

16 Too Much Homework

I got piled on with homework many times in 6th Grade.

This is already on the list.

17 Cursing and Swearing

This happens a lot in my school, most of the time, the staff isn't near the people who do it, allowing them to easily get away with it. My friends swear too in 7th grade. One of them yell out a cuss word every once in a while (even when the staff is around; I tell him to not cuss when the staff is nearby but he just responds that he doesn't care by saying "I don't give a (not saying).")

EXACTLY! I don't understand why everyone is cursing in a middle-aged school stage. Heck, high school stage shouldn't have cursing as well.

I'm in middle school and HATE swearing. Luckily, my homeschooled best friends agree with me.

Y tho? Just use another word. There's so many more out there! Add some to your vocabulary.

18 Every Teacher Bitching About Your Body Changing

"That's perfectly okay," They would say. "Your body is changing and we're here to help," I mean GOD what is worse than a TEACHER telling you what exactly is going on there!

Oh, I have a teacher named Mrs. Holzapfel who sprays lysol on kids for coughing, sneezing, etc. She sprays on their food, their desk, and even at THEM. Wish I could stuff the bottle down her throat.

Is there any teacher that doesn't tell you straight to your face that you stink and sprays you with Lysol? *rhetorical* I hope so.

19 Math

I've always been a math wiz, but I just do not like my math teacher (the one with the pink stuffed animals in her room) she makes everything ten times harder and she talks so much and so fast in her slow voice that's it's hard to keep up. Well then again most of my grade and most of her past students don't like her so I'm not alone.

Most if the stuff I learn in math is just complete bull crap because I'll probably never use in life.

Wait until you get to high school kids. Just you wait.

It's gotten harder now. I never liked math.

20 Lockers

They suck a lot. Our lockers in my school are half the size of a regular locker and I can't even fit my backpack in there. I'm stuck bringing my backpack in my classroom! What's worse is sometimes your neighbors takes ALL the space!

I can barely open my locker, even though I get my combination right :T. They're the reason usually that I can't get to class on time, espically advisory/homeroom. When you open it, the little button/thing you push, it's super hard to open for me. I have to embarrassingly ask for help a lot. Thanks a lot, lockers -_-.

The lockers at my school are about 1 inch wide and they SUCK! Everyone's always getting in the way and accidentally hitting each other with lockers! It sucks.

In middle school, the first year (6th Grade) we had to either share lockers with another person or get half of the size locker we'd get in upper grades.Both options sucked.

21 Language Arts

My language arts teacher has bad English. She also praises the girls (me the most) more than the guys. She spends most of the time giving out minor referrals to the boys, and when she's not doing so I pretty much don't understand the lessons

One time in 7th grade Mrs Jensen asked "Kelly Bulanek are you having your period? Seriously are you on your period or not?

I LOVE language arts (mostly grammar and vocabulary).

I have a C in this class

22 Stupid People

When I was in the sixth and seventh grades, I was very eager to learn the Korean language, that Dad didn't want me to. Like, in sixth grade, I had a Korean newspaper to write for geography class, but Dad threatened me that he would call the teacher to exempt me from working on that Korean newspaper or even learning the Korean language, but I said no, and in seventh grade, I still wanted to learn Korean and first got into K-Pop, but many of the songs that Dad didn't like, and he called me stupid for that, so finally, in eighth grade, I decided to stop listening to K-Pop or even learning Korean or any other language, but things just got even worse for me, and I felt much more stupid then. So being called stupid by others doesn't really make anyone stupid, giving up your interests or not wanting to learn about it is the REAL definition of being stupid.

Omg. Yes. Why is this not higher on the list? Every girl wears shorts that are super short, or tight ripped jeans, and all the boys are the absolute worst. Even the smart ones are stupid. Nobody cares about each other's feelings. Nobody pays attention in class, and nobody gives any effort to pass. It makes me so angry because I'm over here working my butt off and I look over and they are just circling random answers and doing random crap instead of their work. AND THE GIGGLING JUST STOP It's SO ANNOYING IN MATH CLASS!

You know what? We have to wait 10 MINUTES for our "classmates" to understand the equation.

23 Science

So what about the core, huh? It's not our problem to discover what's inside the Earth? It's not like we like to touch it or anything

Science sucks! because
1) The teacher do not know about science
2) Always Test even at the first day at school

24 Social Studies

Literally in 6th and 7th grade I loved history and had the best teacher. I knew everything thing about politics, wars, commandments, etc. but now I hate it with passion. My history teacher now doesn't even teach us, she hardly even talks to us she just writes it on the board and tells us to get to work like she doesn't even deserve to be called a teachers if she doesn't teach

Seriously though we have to cram a bunch of random information and somehow manage to retain it till a test and then forget it. we only have unit test and interims for this subject so I'm grateful that I don't need to memorize a bunch of information until the end of the year. worst part�"honors social studies SUCKS SO MUCH. its even more boring than normal social studies. the reason I kno is because I was in a normal class for the first semester, then I got tested for GT and got accepted, landing me in honors social studies this semester. I can't even tell u how lucky people in normal social studies are because at least they don't get countless projects

In fifth grade I actully started liking social studies because everything was with partners and I learned so much interrsting thing I filled up my whole notebook. Then I got to sixth grade and I hated social studies.

Social studies is fun to be honest... we learn ancient history and it was pretty interesting. My grade was an 86% to a 95% because I loved history.. Mostly I lik modern history then ancient history! Social studies is fun
