I Hate High School

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,119 People

    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...

    There's nothing about it I really like.

    So you go through 4 years of bullshit just to get a diploma meaning u graduated.. oh yay now I'm finally qualified for this world and this means I can be normal and conform to social norms!! Well I just can't. Most of the stuff you learn is ridiculous as well and not needed. We...

    It's full of fake, derriere-kiss ups

    who get away with anything and everything. It's a place where grades, popularity, and looks determine who you are. It's a cage match between hungry resume-fillers and desperate Ivy climbers. I hate it. I hate it so much.

    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...

    Caring about school and being unmotivated is

    the worst. Nowadays I see my grades slipping more and more and I hate it so much, but I can't make myself do anything about it.

    So, I'm almost done with my junior year,

    and finishing exams. I talk to other people and they all seem just as brain dead as I am. I feel physically ill at the thought of going to school tomorrow. There must be an alternative to high school, because I don't know how much longer I can do this. I don't even really want...

    They say it's the best 4 years of your life.

    That's bullshit. I'm so miserable. It's not the schoolwork, it's the immature ****** I have to put up with. 😒

    I don't only hate how they cram

    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.

    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...

    Best 4 years of your life,

    huh? Well, that's probably only for the people who are: popular, smart, athletic, involved in school, and loved by everyone. Seriously, high school is awful. The tests are hard, they give too much homework, and the other teens make me feel uncomfortable, unwanted, and a waste of...

    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...

    There are actually people signing a petition to

    get exams removed from high schools in Ontario. As much as I hate exams, I don't think banning them is a good idea. I mean, most of your marks in University comes from tests and exams are good practice for that.
