O.O wow that is small ^^; yeah, we have maybe about 150 between the freshmen and sophmores and everyone else is either on a different campus or transferred out :/ Its a bad thing... i guess? I mean, secrets are spilled easier and people are irritated easier, but you get to make really close friends that can provide help when you most need it :)
to CarrieAnn13 btw :)
I think it is because they keep us in grade school till long. I remember loving school, in middle school the love went down a bit because of the repeats, and in highschool the reapeats became quite numerous. So, I switched to homeschooling, graduated early, and went to college. Much better experience in college, except the repeats I wish I got credit for the first time, and now that I liked school again, having to pay for it. I think we should honestly go to college after 6th grade.
I actually love school. I mean it's stressful and all but that's where I meet my best friends.
School is up and down for me.
I think it's usually because of the people. Like because of the cliques and popularity and all that. And some people also don't like teachers, but I completely respect them.
Maybe also because it makes life stressful, like mine because I have dance and then so much homework. But in the summer I miss school. I can't wait to go back soon!
I bet if kids could go to school and take the classes they liked the best they would be happy. I pretty much like everything except Math. Most kids hate it because they don't understand what they are learning
Most of the people that post negative things about school, is because they are either not as fast as learning as others and can't comprehend fast enough what the teacher is teaching. Or they are being bullied. I don't think I've ever seen a post about school that didn't have a good reason.
Most of the time, I love school. I love learning, I love Algebra, I love language arts. But last year was really bad for me. See, it's not that I hated school itself. I hated what came with school. I had a big problem with self confidence and ended up thinking that everyone was against me, even my closest friends. I began to feel that walls were closing in on me all the time because of the loads of homework that comes with AP classes and my parents have always put a lot of stress on me. With all of that, I'm surprised that I'm not in a mental facility, hugging a pet tarantula. This year's much better, so I love school again. :)
I guess bcoz school forces ppl to do things they don't really enjoy.... Like Mathematics for example..=P That's the biggest reason why I hate school....
I <3 school!!!!!!!!!
I'm also a serious nerd, so that might be it.
This may just be me, but I'm the only person in my entire school who really looks forward to mondays. THEIR MY FAVE DAY OF THE WEEK. And I love school, so...
Public school brainwashes kids into thinking a certain way. It is a way for the government to control people, and one of their best ways of doing so. Not only are the classes really dumb and boring, but they are just dumbed down junk that you have to learn in more detail later. Also, all of my homeschooled friends, and myslef, finish our schoolwork in approximately 2-3 hours, and we test better than most public schooled kids (I'm not trying to brag or anything, but it's true). You don't need 8 hours plus homework to learn everything - I don't even have homework, btw. Also, some of the core classses are uneeded for most fields and should be taught only as electives (these classes include history and science). Public schools are part of the horriffic system the government has created to keep people from making intelligent decisions. As for the actual schoolwork, I enjoy most of it (excluding busy work and most history, I mean, who cares about dead people, hakunah matata, dude).
I hate school because I don't feel safe there. People like bullying me and stuff. I wouldn't mind it if people were nice.
I would rather go to school than stay at home most days.
I dislike going to school in my country, ( 'Merica, ) because they teach us stuff we're never going to use, which basically extends our school years by a fair amount. Why teach me stuff I'll eventually forget anyway?
I mean come on. Really.
This is based off of my honest opinion and personal experience as a junior at a highly competitive school. I dislike school at times, because of the constant pressure given by peers, teachers, parents, and myself to have successful grades and be one of those "top students." I find myself unable to thrive as much as I could in terms of oral communication. I just feel that most people are so concerned with schoolwork and constantly talk about grades, tests, cheating, etc. that they don't really focus on the individual person himself. I like to learn, yes. But the environment sometimes feels like I'm being strangled to learn for others, not for myself. And for a while I had a difficult time figuring it out. That it was my education and future, not others. I can bring up other instances, like my regular chemistry teacher telling me I'd do fine in AP Chemistry-- I had to drop it because I was legitly failing-- for the first time. I don't know... High school is terrible at times, and only rarely can I ever feel accomplished.
I'd like to add on that some classes, like history, has biased views and really is another way for the government to "control people."
Plus, some required classes like mathematics and science and such... even my teachers (and my parents) have personally said that they don't remember learning such and such in their times.
I guess this also pertains to the different education systems in different countries, too.
I wouldn't say I hate it. Frankly, it's quite enjoyable as it is a distraction...
However, the thing that is unnapealling to me is the endless monotony. Learning things you'll never use later in life. Going to class every day for literally two decades. The never ending cycle of tests, work, and drama.
Just so much stuff I'd rather do without...
