Top 10 Worst Things About Middle School

The Top Ten Worst Things About Middle School

1 Homework

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! - PhoenixAura81

I had so much math homework I had to go through 6 weeks of psychological therapy. - benhos

I get an average of 128 questions on my math homework. Yes, I count it. I don't think I need to say anything else. Middle school sucks.

For this week, I'm not going to school since the 9th graders' final exams are ongoing but we have holiday homework from each subject - MLPFan

2 Monday Mornings

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.

I have PE first period and we have Mile Monday! You can guess what that is.

Have to wake up earlier on mondays with no given reason.

3 Crush Breaks Up With You

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. - Avavic1009

I had I boyfriend in 2nd grade I asked him if he liked me he said yes when I was In 6th grade he told me we had to break up ( I'm now in 7th grade ) I and now he is with a popular girl I gave him a beautiful pic of me and gave me a hot pic of him I beet he ripped the pic if he did I break his

Well I’ve Never been in a relationship, but my friends have! All they can talk about is boys! Also there so depressed because of them.

Ok, that is SERIOUSLY not a problem! HOW is this NUMBER TWO?!?! I've never had a crush or boyfriend. Even if I did, I would be quite RELIEVED when a breakup happens. Abusive teachers and bullies should be higher. - PhoenixAura81

4 Cafeteria Food

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.

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.

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.

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

Reminds me of the time my friend found a hair in his cookie. Except I just stopped buying cookies. - nooby32

5 Everyone Turns Into a Jerk

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.

In 6th Grade Your Friend Retained There Elementery School Behavior And Listened To Great Singers Like Justin Timberlake Or Bruno Mars And Watched Great T.V. shows Like Adventure Time Or Older SpongeBob Episodes. But Sometimes When 7th Grade Comes They Turn From Kind And Smart To Mean And Idiotic And Listen To Crap Like Justin Beiber And Miley Cyrus! And Scince My Friends Are Smart Enough, They Always Retained There Heart From Elementary School.

In 4th grade I was popular and in 5th grade I had some friends and in 6th grade the

Every single girl changes from a sweet, innocent, princess-loving girly-girl to a gothic poser who cuts herself and listens to Avril Lavigne. Well, at least at my school, that's the way it is.

6 No More Recess

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

My school has a park but we never play on it

I need recess, but now we just have classes all day long with only a small lunch break. Ugh. :-(

I am strictly ordered to spend my time in library in Recess

7 Hot Teachers You Couldn't Have

Seriously? Who the duck added this on the list

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? - FateyHatey

I am a ♂ 8th Grade Student and I have a crush on my ♂ Social Studies Teacher (by the way I am Bisexual)

8 Too Many Projects

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

One week I had 4 projects in a week. LIKE BRUH!


I have a class where all we do is projects! - Popsicles

9 Boring Classes

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.

Not everyone will use math in their daily life. Get used to it, schools. - nooby32

I hate getting tired and sleeping I was washing my face at morning - SpencerJC

Poetry is the most useless class to exist. - DarkandSinister

10 Immature Classmates

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.

In 7th grade kids called me a tattletale for reporting a kid to the teacher and being praised by the teacher for it.

some of the kids get so loud when the teacher turns his/her back and make a bunch of mean and kindergarten level jokes and when teacher turns around to see who it is they shut their mouth, then we all get in trouble. also, stupid boys think it's funny to spray fart spray in classroom and bathroom and then whole middle school loses free seating privelage for two whole freaking lunches. heard from one of my guy friends a guy put chocolate powder and toilet paper in a toilet and sprays fart spray on it. talk about pass out?

I don't CARE about those "yo mom" jokes I'm trying to do my work so I don't end up working in McDonalds like you - Yatagarasu

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.

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

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

I haven't been in middle school yet bet what I have been hearing about it makes me almost want to give up on life

12 The Teachers Are Strict

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

Gym teacher

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

Yea no joke m8 - ayumi-oki

13 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. - PhoenixAura81

What does a stupid letter written on a dead tree do to me? Nothing - 445956

sort of

Miss one assignment = Automatic C

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


14 Crazy Teachers

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.

I had a teacher in 6th grade she taught math and didn't know how to explain it and she would stand on the the desk and explain useless crap she should just retire now

All my teachers are crazy! I completely agree - NerdyPweeps

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 - SugarcoatShadowBolt

15 Bullies

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

I disagree when I was in sixth grade I was bullied and in later grades respected by sixth graders - Warmfy22_33

How is this lower than "Hot Teachers You Couldn't Have? " - 445956

I have beaten up several bullies although I'm a 7th grader

When I was in 7th grade kids called me a tattletale for no reason

16 Too Much Homework

This is already on the list.

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

Uhh... a little bit of homework

I barely get homework for whatever reason - 445956

17 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.

I've never been great at Math but now I feel dumber than ever because it's just so hard - SugarcoatShadowBolt

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.

18 Cursing and Swearing

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.

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).”)

19 Language Arts

I only liked learning about Greek mythology and watching Disney's Hercules in 7th grade

I LOVE language arts (mostly grammar and vocabulary). - PhoenixAura81

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

I hate language arts it's the only class I'm not doing well in

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!

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. - MaxAurelius

I was getting my stuff and I told this one girl blocking my locker to move politely and she said " No you retard! "

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.

21 Every Teacher Bitching About Your Body Changing

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.

22 Science

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

23 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

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

This was my favorite class by the way - DarkandSinister

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.

24 That One Lonely Guy

Same, but your not alone anymore (the one from the bottom). being a lonely girl turned out to be one of my habits in grade 7, so its okey

Loneliest girl in the class

25 Music

Our music teacher is teaching us through technology and we aren't learning anything and all we do is sing church songs

26 PE

Why the hell is this not #1

I dread PE. EVERY TIME the teacher calls me to demonstrate something, I ALWAYS mess it up!

My 6th grade PE teacher was actually very understanding and awesome, but I'm not as enthralled with my 7th grade PE teacher as much.

I sprained my finger in 7th grade PE

27 Stupid People


28 All The Girls Attack You

Lol I was in the hallway and a boy told me I was mean and I said "no, just honest." And so we started being honest and he looked me up and down and said "you have a small butt" and I was so offended and needless to say that afternoon I was one of those girls.

All the popular girls are always thinking that they are better then you. Also they always talk about your butt and how small it is or how stupid you are. What they don't relize that they are exactly the same and that they make me strong not them.

I never seen this ever

1 girll hate me for doing stupid thing.

29 Favoritism Among Teachers

AHH YES! This is so True! And it gets super annoying sometimes like when the teacher gives everyone a super awfull assignment and tells the kid he can just sit there and read

30 Homeroom

I sit in homeroom and just stare at the walls

31 Too Many Worksheets
32 Strict Dress Codes

You can't even wear a tank top without getting yelled at

If you don't have a dress code then you are lucky.

Phew we don't have that

We don't have dress codes!

33 Losing Friends

Not just losing friends but finding them. Honestly everyone is so annoying and they do bad things like curse. Don't get me started on how they "date." They all act so mature but immature at the same time. Lots of people like me but I secretly hate all my friends.

I have never seen someone have more than 4 friends in middle school, everyone is just too awkward and anxious.

Losing everyone

I have only one friend in my class and don't get to talk much

34 People Running in the Hallways

My brother got hurt because someone was running in the halls. He had to go to the hospital and get stitches above his eye

35 No Respect

That why I Hate middle school

It Really sucks - Bikerninja1997

36 Horrible Lunch

I don't know why, but the lunches in my school don't taste so bad. - Pegasister12

I'm in 7th grade and my friend found... "burnt meat" says the teacher... it's probably raw meat!

We have to bring much and I bring my mom's worst(carrot and egg sandwich) and two fiber biscut because need to lose weight! (51 KG! :0)

My mom packed my lunches in middle school. (Wouldn’t let me buy school lunch cause it was too expensive) It was horrible. A typical lunch for me in middle school was the following:

-1 hot dog, no bun, CHOPPED UP IN TINY PIECES (which is obviously NOT enough food for a growing preteen)
-Yeo’s lychee juice (I’m Asian). The other kids teased me about it.
-an overripe banana (I gagged on it in front of the other kids and they all avoided me because of it)

I should’ve bought the cafeteria food instead.

37 No More Ice Cream Socials

Come on! They were fun and I even got to go outside and party! Stupid school

We only got one

38 Teachers Who Don't Believe You

I know it is so annoying even if you did not do it they will still blame you

39 Bad Grades

Not really a person with bad grades (If anything, I'm one of the people with above average and good grades) but I can see why this is a bit bad. But hey, It's not the school's fault. It means that you need to study harder - MLPFan

Are you Asian (person below me) lol

You can't hate middle school for that. You can get bad grades in any school.

I got two B's and my dad grounded me for 3 days

40 Teenyboppers

Some of the 7th graders(juniors) are like this. I mean, really! They all talk about Twilight movies, One Direction, and use Instagram too much. When I was at 7th grade, I never acted like that! - MLPFan

What is that

41 Class Changes

I got so mad because my friends are in that class and I had to change classes

We never change classes. We will sit in the same classroom for an entire year. The ones changing would be the teachers. - MLPFan

I wish we never change classes in middle school.

42 You Get Out of School Late

Get home so late, you can't even live a REAL life! I mean come on, high schoolers get home earlier than we do.

43 You No Longer Have Weekly Minimum Days

What are you talking about I'm in 6th grade and we still do

Yea I don't have minimum days no more it really sucks

I still do but only on Wednesday. - Pegasister12

Same, We normally get out at 2:54, But at 2:04 is the minimum day time
that's FIFTY MINUTES EARLY😡 and sixth graders get out at 12:15 on minimum days

44 No Talking Allowed

My school: No Hugging
Other schools: No friends

Somethin wrong with our world 😒

When in middle school, like in 7th grade, the 8th grade classes had to go through a lesson about displays of affection. - MaxAurelius

45 School Shooting

I was in a lock down even thought there was no shooter but I'm still traumatized for life after that scary lockdown

That would be terrible! Bleeding,hurt or dead people,and serial killers! Surprisingly,Justin Bieber visits and sings isn't on the list.but it would be bad though

46 You Get In Trouble for Nothing

Once, I went to say hi to my friend. The teacher saw me and handed me a detention saying "for swearing to another peer".what the heck.

I never had that experience...But I feel bad for you lol

47 School Schedules
48 Detention

It's boring. You just keep waiting and waiting and... Your parent are gonna scream there heads

The LITTLEST thing I do my teacher will SEND ME THERE

It should be #1...

49 Mean Teachers
