• Excuse for being off school for a month?

    I m in highschool and I ve been off for a month due to my sleeping problems.

    I m in highschool and I ve been off for a month due to my sleeping problems. Now that I think about it though, it sounds like a shitty reason to put "he had sleeping problems" to be off school for a month. What would be a good reason to be off for a month? I m panicking about even going back in case everyone thinks I m just too lazy to go to school. (Don t say "just dont go back" I ve been down that road twice and didn t go to school for about 1.5 years each time.) I m thinking of saying I had a chest infection and then felt ill for a while after that, but I m not sure.

    I am in 11th grade and school makes me so unhappy. I cry almost every morning before school and almost everyday in the bathroom. I have great friends and everything but I can t succeed there. I try so hard to do all my work and make sure it s done with pride but I still don t do well on the assignments. I hate not being able to do anything that I want to do and instead do what a teacher is telling me to do. I need advice on whether or not dropping out is a possibility.

  • Is school useless?

    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed. First, reduce the hours children have to spend at school. 6-7 hours is a long time to be focused on topics that aren't even helpful with paying bills or looking after elderly relatives - let alone,... show more
    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed.

    First, reduce the hours children have to spend at school. 6-7 hours is a long time to be focused on topics that aren't even helpful with paying bills or looking after elderly relatives - let alone, focusing on topics one may not be interested in or good at.

    So to answer your question - no, school is not useless. But it should be made flexible. Kids are people too - no one likes to be patronised at any age.

  • Should I send my kid to private school so he does not have to be around a bunch of blacks and Mexicans like I did?

    Best answer: When I was young, we moved from an area with a higher than average minority population to a similar income level area that was practically all white, the schools were much better.

    I personally think school is a waste of time and I am a student saying this. Seriously, What kind of education am I even receiving? The education at school is a joke, You really don't learn anything it's just memorization. Right now I'm at school typing this, And I'm wasting my time right now, Right now I could be sleeping, cooking, working out or just working but instead I'm right here at school doing absolutely nothing but wasting my time. And I can't believe how some people actually believe that school is good for you and not a waste of time. Hopefully those people wake up and realize that they have been lied or they have been brainwashed.

  • D+ average in first marking period of AP class...will colleges reject me for this?

    I am currently a sophomore and I'm taking my first AP class this year; AP Bio. Last year, I took Honors Bio and ended with a 96 final average so I thought taking AP wouldn't be that bad. Unfortunately, I underestimated the class, and my first marking period grade was a 68, THE FIRST D I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. I talked to the teacher and did as much as I could to raise the grade but it never worked out. It is now second period but I am doing much better. I go for extra help and have been scoring MUCH better on my tests, quizzes and labs, (got a 96 on the first test this quarter, and a 95 on the lab we recently did..quizzes so far have been 90s and above). I have changed and revamped my studying habits and if I continue like this, my teacher said that my final average could be somewhere in the high 80s and low 90s (B+ to A-). As of now, all my other classes are honors and I have 90s and higher in them, and I participate in 2-3 extracurriculars. I care about my future and want to go down the medical field in college, and would, therefore, like to go to a good college, so I was wondering; would this one grade affect my admission chances? Thank you to anyone for the feedback. I will also provide you with other classes/extracurriculars I'm taking so you can get a better picture of how hard-working, and dedicated I am.

  • I don't know what to do. I can't focus on anything. What is wrong with me?

    I used to get good grades in school, but once I hit high school, things started to go downhill. Especially last year and it keeps getting worse.

    I used to get good grades in school, but once I hit high school, things started to go downhill. Especially last year and it keeps getting worse. I can never concentrate in class, even when I try really hard to. I take really long to think. I can never do my homework, I just don't have enough motivation and I can't concentrate. I haven't paid attention in math class this entire year and I'm usually really good at math. The teacher never checks our homework, so I really don't do it. I usually say I will, but then push it back and never do it. Yesterday in class we had a test and I did one problem out of thirty and the rest of the class for an hour and a half I sat and drew a turkey on my paper, because I didn't feel like doing it. I can't read books at all and I can't even watch a movie or my favorite tv show all the way through anymore. I don't finish anything I start. I'm just really struggling and I don't know what is wrong with me.

  • Seriously why does school exist?? How could anyone believe that school is good for you?? What can l do?

    School is not about learning, School is about memorization and wasting time. Like right now, I’m wasting my time at school when I could be cooking, exercising or sleeping. Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning????... show more

Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning???? Seriously I learn more outside of school. And you know what’s the worst part? My parents made me stay after school for drivers ed which even wastes my time even more, Seriously it’s a bullshit class!! I ain’t learning ****, Seriously every thing is bullshit after school!! And I keep telling my parents how school really is and they just laughed at me. They said how grateful I should be that I’m in school. They say how school is the only place where you get your education, how school is so important. Seriously they have been brainwashed, Education is important not school unless the school is a good one. So what can I do?? I am crying as I am typing this at school, I just wished people can understand that not all schools are good, they are just abusing kids.

  • Questions about high school and grades?

    I had a rough freshman and sophomore year grade wise because of a lack of motivation (ended sophomore year within the 2.0-2.5 overall gpa range).

    I had a rough freshman and sophomore year grade wise because of a lack of motivation (ended sophomore year within the 2.0-2.5 overall gpa range). For junior year, I am challenging myself by taking AICE and honors courses. I should be getting three As, three Bs, and one C for this first semester (does that look bad to admission boards?). I am determined and expect myself to make straight As throughout the rest of high school starting second semester of this school year. Next school year will include more AICE courses but also about 2 or 3 AP courses. I am working on redoing any classes for grade forgiveness from my first two years of high school. I have been putting significant effort into my schoolwork lately. So basically, my questions are: 1. Will my overall GPA and ACT/SAT test scores matter more to universities such as FSU and UF rather than what letter grades I had on my high school transcript? 2. Would I get rejected because of my freshman and sophomore year grades/GPA regardless of how I did junior and senior year? 3. Are the courses that I’ve listed rigorous enough to get myself admitted into a state university if I were to make mostly As (or a few Bs) in them?

    My dad struggled with English, I don’t know the name of his disability/ies but he didn’t make it through high school. My older brother was fine but when he got into 10th or 11th grade his grade in reading was starting to go down and chances are he partially has it. I’m in 8th grade. I’ve always been an avid reader/writer. When I was 6 I would write my own books out of copy paper and staple them together. Last week, I just received the information I won a local essay contest. These last two days in school, when I was in reading, I’ve been struggling. Stuff that I’ve done and understood has just not then there in my head. I could not understand an essay whatsoever and it was stressful and embarrassing because I’m looked upon as one of the smarter kids in class. Then yesterday, it took me 1 class period for a simple quiz answer. I had kept writing answers then crossing them out. I ended up just giving up and writing random stuff. Nothings clouding my mind, no boy or girl drama. I hope this isn’t permanent. Does anyone know what’s happening to me?

It stresses me out and I don't have time for it. I want to work so I can pay rent and but food. Now I'm back in school and it just doesn't seem worth it. Yeah the payoff WAYYY down the line is good. But for now it's just so draining. Did any of you go through school without ever feeling like you are wasting your time?
