I Hate High School

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,108 People

    Summer is ending, and I'm having awful anxiety.

    To me, back to school means back to daily migraines and back to cruel and judgmental students, back to careless and condescending teachers. It means back to being made to feel stupid, like you aren't good enough, like you can't make it, like you can't succeed.

    I'm generally extremely shy in school.

    I don't talk loudly and when I try, I just end up sounding really weird. When I talk for slightly longer periods of time, my face gets burning hot and my voice shakes uncontrollably. Today, I had to read my group paragraph to the class. After I finished, the teacher told me to...

    Whenever I have an exam,

    I always study everything I need to but, during the exam I mess everything up and I lose a ton of marks. I stress so much that I write the wrong answer when I know the right one. It has gotten to the level where I'd bite my lip till it starts bleeding. And in the end, it feels...

    I feel sick at the thought of going back to

    school. Everyday, I sit in class alone and unnoticed. Other people have so much fun and laugh with their friends, but I go almost the whole day without smiling at all. Of all the people at my school, there is no one I can find who actually takes me seriously and wants to be...

    I hate it when people completely exclude you

    from the conversation. I've been hanging out with these people and we are a new group of friends and have only met this school year. The one girl who is my locker partner (not by choice) keeps talking about things that I'm not familiar with (like things that happened to her or...

    School in general. I love learning,

    but I don't like being around the people. I don't like how petty social events are the epitome of our life at this stage. I hate that we're expected to act like adults but still get treated like we're children. I, personally, see that as being some of the problem as to why many...

    so much unneeded information that I'll never use into my mind, or how they suck at educating us, but also the social aspect of it. I not only hate people, but I hate people my age. Especially if I know them. But don't get me wrong, I enjoy the presence of many teens, just not...

    Everyone is annoying.

    I have no friends. The amount of homework I have is ridiculous. Sometimes I REALLY wanna drop out. But I don't wanna end up working at McDonald's for the rest of my life, so.

    than 150 days of high school left. These past 4 years have been the most emotional, life changing years of my life. I lost a lot and I gained a lot. I'm happy to say it's almost over.

    Hate it with a passion.

    I'm always being told I'm lucky I get a free education but that's not what it is anymore. Hardly any teachers are there to actually teach, they're there to make sure you pass standards. They're there because it's a job and nothing more. I don't see why teachers get so angry when...
