• Why is my sister so bad at school?

    She's failing the majority of her classes in the 7th grade. She, for some reason, is taking advanced classes in social studies, science and english and she can't handle them.

    She's failing the majority of her classes in the 7th grade. She, for some reason, is taking advanced classes in social studies, science and english and she can't handle them. I believe she's only taking these classes to be with her friends. But she seriously can not handle them - she has such horrible grades and never studies. I've been telling her to not take advanced classes and drop out to the basic-level of classes but she won't listen. She's in Spanish 1 as a 7th grader and is struggling very bad. Meanwhile I'm a sophomore in HS and I study everyday trying to maintain my place in the class rank. What should I tell her? How can I tell her that grades are important?

  • Does life change after high school?

    Best answer: I don't really know where your mother gets that idea from.. life changes COMPLETEY when you start working. You meet new people straight away, eventually you may meet a partner, get married, (for some), etc etc. It is absurd to think that nothing will change.

  • I'm in grade 11, Is it okay for me to drop out high school once I turn 16?

    I learned that our current school system is really useless, outdated, obsolete, created during the Industrial Age, I'm labeled by either stupid, or smart by my test scores, I don't need to know "calculus: or "physics" or even Shakespeare. Unless I want to become some scientist.

  • Does high school really go by fast?

    The seniors at my high school said that it does. But do you think that's true? I'm a Freshman and it has felt like I've been in high school forever(even though it's been less than four months.) :/ I'm planning on graduating as a junior, also, anything to get out sooner.

Can I start playing orchestra in high school, or is it too late?

  • I got in a bit of trouble with my school and the police. (I framed someone, but I wasn't arrested.) I know my teachers are going to find out?

    I don't know if I should tell my teachers in private and explain to them what I occurred. Mind you I am very shy and quiet in class. Any advice?

    I'm a freshman in High school and I am considered a good, nerdy kid. I care about my grades; I stress about every class, test, teacher and opinion. Recently I have befriended some peers of mine, these peers are nothing like me. They kinda care about grades, they're carefree and act like normal teenagers. They smoke, drink and do things they shouldn't. I realize they're a bad influence but they are people I relax with and have a good time with. Since hanging out with them I've started not caring as much about my grades, going to school baked, I ruined a relationship of 2 of them. I've became closer to one of the guys in the group, we're now talking. I love these people, they're the people I want throughout high school but I know I can't drop out of high school for any stupid decision.
