I'm guessing we're talking about secondary school (I live in the UK). Anyway, secondary school for me was terrible. At the best of times, it was boring as hell, at the worst of times It nigh on took my will to live. The work was either really boring and easy or boring and really easy. The people, well, I don't like other people at the best of times and in a sense secondary school just gave me ample opportunity to distance myself from everyone else. I had 'friends' of course, but in reality it was just to pass the time.

On to college, still terrible, still don't have any friend's who I really respect or want to be around to any great extent. I'm not saying I'm this great person who is a model for the human species, but this is just how I feel, I don't have a choice in the matter. The work got harder, obviously, I took Computing, Physics, Chemistry and Further maths in my first year.

Chemistry was more boring and more difficult than I'd envisioned, Further maths was just a complete and utter mess, going to have to retake the EASIER exams next year (I did far better in the 'harder' exams, probably due to the difficulty).

Physics has always been my subject of choice so no real problems there, bit boring at time's but it's workable. Very disappointed with my likely grade though(B), I was aiming for an A or higher but that's just life I guess.

Computing was piss easy, though yet again I aced the 'harder' exam and failed the 'easy' exam because it was boring as hell.

All in all, not satisfied with my education. In my second year I'll likely be retaking 4 modules. I'm by no means exempt from blame for my lacklustre performance, but for sure It could have been better. At this point the social aspect of education is non-existent so the only thing left to do is complete my second year and go get a degree, hopefully.

Tangent
If I'm to be honest here, the day I have a stable job that pays well and my own living space is the day that I stop interacting with anyone outside the workplace. I just don't see the point.

Same here... there were some good moments though.....i kinda hated it....(i should have punched those a$$holes in the face in 5th grade, they would have thinked twice to mess with me, and then i wouldn't had become a nerdy kid, and my high school days would have been good too).. iwas like i don't care if they bully me as long as i leave it they will stop.....they didn't..
and to hell with my policy of i won't fight.....
nowadays i'm like that and no one bullies me, they respect me, but HS years left me with somthing i can't shake off easily....shyness, and bad social skills....so i'm kinda like a loner now. though i'm trying hard to change myself.

Still in Senior School for me. I really find it average. Since I like in the UK I can say that it is great for what I do with my friends outside of school. In my age at the moment, you can probably do many things you couldn't do when you were little. On the other hand, if it was academic, it is horrible. I can't seem to focus on English, PE GCSE, couple of Science subjects and SOMETIMES Business Studies. It's probably because I seem to have a busy life. Still, the subjects are hard. I can say I do have friends but I don't normally get invited to house parties which sometimes worries me
In my school, we use laptops (provided) and that's great. The BAD thing is that I can't do anything with it because they installed Securus and they are the administrators of the laptops making me unable to install any programs I want. I would have to find portable versions of the program for it to work. The laptops also have a terrible graphics card making me unable to play games. The best it could go to is probably Team Fortress 2 (Map: Orange x3). Yep I know, what a horrible graphics card. Using it was really easy though. At least programs like Photoshop is given with it so I can use it for my signature works!

High school was really fun. I could have made more of it but I still enjoyed it.

High School was decent solely due the that fact that it wasn't nearly as bad of an experience as middle school. It was still pretty meh overall, and I ending up not really keeping contact with anyone from it .

It was all right I guess, didn't really do anything spectacular. I got along fine with most people besides those who were blatant assholes for the sake of being a asshole. Junior year was my favorite year. Didn't really care about the proms...

^ this.

University was awesome, but highschool was the most boring and useless time in my life, spent with most stupid people I've ever met.

Well, at least I'm good friends with people from my elementary school days.

But still, it's pretty problematic because all the people from high school live in the same neighborhood as me, so when I stumble upon them outside it ends up into an awkward "Oh uuh, hi there... Yeah, we should go out some time."

I've just graduated last month and I kind of miss school already, as weird as it may sound. I had a great high school experience - half a year of it in Tokyo, which was quite amazing, and three more in a great boarding school where I made tons of friends from all over the world. I quite enjoyed a lot of my classes and teachers. It was a very protected environment compared to most though, so I am a bit worried about plunging into university this September.

I am surprised by the amount of "Oh it sucked!"/"Miserable!" responses. As an elementary school student, you guys are scaring me. Seriously! I thought everyone loved their high school experience.

Don't worry, there's more or less two types of student. Those who do well in high school and those who don't. You'll probably get on fine. Bear in mind that people are more likely to throw their $0.02 in if they had a bad experience.

One thing I should say here is that my school situation was pretty unusual, in that all my school years - From K to 12 - Were spent going to the same large school (it basically had two large sections: One for K to 6, and one for 7 to 12, but the two sections shared gym facilities and it was all interconnected).

So by the time I was in Grade 7, there was quite a degree of comfortable familiarity shared amongst my classmates, and I already knew well the students a year or two older than me. You'd get the odd transfer student due to somebody moving into town, but other than that it was mostly familiar faces and long-time friends.


So high school was pretty good. I was on good terms with most of my classmates, friends with a few of them, and friends with a few people in grades above and below me.

Grades 7 through 9 was a blast, largely since the actual school work side of things came easy to me in those years.

Grades 10 and 11 were significantly harder as the workload increased substantially then, and it was only then that my classmates and I encountered comprehensive Mid-Terms and Finals (these actually didn't exist for us in Grades 7 through 9).

Grade 12 was great though. I had managed to get used to the increased workload by then, and I enjoyed being in a few leadership positions during my last year of high school. It was also neat getting to graduate from school the same year my father retired from teaching - So we were leaving the school at the same time.


If I had my time back, there's some things I would have done differently. I probably would have socialized more. Most school-days I just headed home and played video games and watched TV by myself. I was never much into sports, and in most respects, I was a typical nerd. After watching so many high school-based anime, I sometimes think that I should have socialized a bit more regularly back then. I wasn't shy, certainly, but I really valued my free time, kind of like Oreki in Hyouka, now that I think of it.
