  • Yes, I had only 2 friends, one dropped out and the other got married and left quickly. I was fat and didn't make friends easily and I worked at my fathers business after school.. so it did suck.. I haven't been to any reunions either... this last year would have been 35 years. However college was a blast... loved it.
  • Not really. I had a few really good friends, and a group of people that I liked to hang out with. I'm sure the "popular" crowd thought of me as a nerd... seeing as how I was in the band, was in the drama club, was in honors and AP classes, and got decent grades. I was even on the Senior class council. However, nobody ever treated me with disrespect. I had some good classes (two especially good teachers) and in general, had an okay time. However, I have never enjoyed school. I hated having to go to classes, I sometimes just refused to do homework. I really thought it was a waste of my time (and to this day, still do not regret it!) Overall, no bad memories there. I was pretty shy, though, and I wish I was more confident and outgoing back then... maybe I would have gotten a little more attention from the boys!
  • No, highschool was great. Almost everyone in my class was cool with everyone else. I got along with almost everyone. As with any highschool there were tons of groups and cliques.. I didn't necessarily belong to any one group. I was good friends with everyone. I joined every single extracurricular activity I could and I loved it. Despite what it sounds like I was actually pretty shy. If I could do it over I would definitely be more confident. I'm still friends with and keep in touch with several of my highschool friends today.
  • YES and NO! In high school I was friends with everyone in every group. I didn't want to be classified into one group so I tried my best to interact with the ESL's, The Norms, The Popular Crowd, The Skaters, The Gangsters, The Potheads, The Overly Dressed for School crowd. I just acted like myself though in it was fine. Never take anyone for granted. The least person you expect could turn out to be one of your bestest friends! However, when I was in certain crowds, I got into a bit of trouble. And there are many things I regret now, such as: 1. Sneaking out 2. Doing drugs 3. Not being more open with my parents 4. Not joining any extracurricular activities 5. Not finishing high school However, I did get many professional jobs and they never knew i didn't graduate. But if I had finished high school, I know I would have a lot more options than I do now. Just remember, High School ends and things will be different. A LOT different. I used to be suicidal in high school, I used to be depressed. I used to cry all the time. But high school is just a phase, and it will change once you are out. Like I said in a previous post: Usually the "geeks/nerds" will become hot and sexy and the "popular" people...well, I have no idea what happened to them. Can't find any of them! It's just a phase...we all go through phases some good, some bad...but if you're in high school, it will get better. good luck!
  • Quite a bit yeah. I'm still there (eugh) and I really hate the people who go to mine. Most are rude, obnoxious and do their very best to make life miserable for the rest of us. But, I have the best friends in the wotld, and I love a good argument with the people. So... I guess its ok, not bad, but not good either
  • Ah... well, I am still there so I am just going to answer anyways. First off, before I went to the high school I do now, it was probably the crappiest high school in the area. High drop out rate, high absences, high pregnancy rate, and infamous for its fights and insubordination. I had horrible grades (that was all mainly on me, though) and I didn't have motivation to do my work anyways. I was very close to failing... That being said, I knew most of those people since elementary school and I loved them to death. I can agree with dazedandconfused on the subject that I was never friends with the one group of people, I was friends with all of them. It was great, too, because I really never took it all into account how nice it was to be friends with all of those people. When I moved that all changed, because now I can't see all of those people everyday like I used to, even though I'm not far away. I am still afraid I am going to be one of the cool kids that everyone forgets about lol. BUT: My school now is one of the top 100 best schools in the country, and I am very happy about that. All of my teachers were great, the kids are all friendly, and everyone is more focused on their work so it made it easier for me to focus on mine. I went from being a mediocre failing student to a passing one very quickly and now I am taking all AP and honors classes. It still sucks sometimes, because I am always going to feel like the new kid because I came in so late and I am not going to have a chance to really know these people longer than a year or two. I don't have any close friends there or anything, but whatever... I am pretty grateful that high school doesn't COMPLETELY suck.
  • I'm homeschooled right now, but I went for a while, and yes, it sucked.
  • High School at the time it sucked...but now that I look back on it, it was a great learning experience that actually molded me into the person I am today...I wouldn;t have changed a thing
  • Its what you make it. if you have a bad attitude, you will have a bad time in school. we all went through it and survived, You will, too.
  • in high school all i did was walk around with a hard on and think about sex. my brain isn"t in my trousers any more. so i only do this part time.
  • I gotta break it down here. Freshman and sophomore years most definitelt did. I was, to say the least, a bully magnet since kindergarten (not exaggerating). That carried over to high school. But something happened sophomore year that literally changed my life forever. No, I didn't get superpowers. No, I didn't almost die. No, I didn't fall in love. I learned to laugh at myself. Also, moving to a different state had an effect, but I had already made the change. Junior and senior years, needless to say, were considerably less sucky. Now I wanna go back!
  • I love high school!! Its so awesum. I'm gonna miss it. Its so much fun. The parties.. the friends.. everything. Football is big.. so you go to all the games.. Its great.
  • Ok.. Well i am still at high school. Since starting i have developed severe anxiety which leaves me too afraid to leave the house to go to school. i have alot of days were i go to the sickbay so that i dont have to face all the bitchy girls that are "outside" i have ben a victim of bullying.. i have a issue with trust and can not trust anyone. To fit in i feel like i have to lie about my life which only comes back tohurt me and when i do tell the truth i know that no-one believes it. i now go to a counciller which i find is really good for me and strongly suggest one for people in the same situation. but i do have some friends that i constantly backstab which i have just relased is done to fit in. so overall i dont think high school is a problem, just the what goes on with the students there! oh and did i mention the english teacher who constantly bullies me? i got moved down a class due to bullying and they act as if im not as smart as the others. quite frankly i cant wait to get out of high school
  • I'm in sec.2. It is sooooooooooooo boring here. *sigh* I hope it'll be at least a bit more fun than here.
  • No, not really. I had a very ecletic group of friends. I hung out with a wild, partying crowd in the evenings. I was in honor classes in the day, and involved in debate, speech, theatre, and the Academic Decathlon team, among others. I just didn't like the pressure to conform. You even had to "conform" to the look of the nonconformists. I also didn't like how they taught you more WHAT to think in history than how to think and facts. I had to unlearn almost everything about history in college, before I could actually learn REAL history.
  • Not at all,...I love high school. it was amazing.
  • It was good, but I feel i made quite a few regrettable mistakes that I wish I could take back.
  • High school was a stressful and anxiety-full time in my life. When I was a Senior, I was ganna literally kill myself but I talked myself out of it because suicide is a waste of time, it doesn't end anything really if ya think about it. I have always been some what suididal...
  • no. it wasnt great but it was okay. even though i never really did much, i had some fun times.
  • High school sucked. It was a tiny town and my mother was known as a tramp who left my Dad and he turned around and married a local lady who they thought he married for her money. My childhood was doomed from the start. I went with about the same 20-30 people the whole time. It was terrible for me. Everyone presumed I was like my mother, and I was nothing like her. And my Dad was a jerk to me sometimes because he saw her in me because I looked a lot like her. Once I got out of that hell hole and moved on, life was a lot better! I went through a few hard times but overall life has been pretty good to me. So to all those who have bad high school experiences, it will get better! The catty and mean girls in school will just go on to learn that being popular in high school doesn't mean a darn thing once high school is over, no one gives a crap at all! In fact I laugh when someone says they were popular in school. That was like a million years ago, your glory days are over. Move on! Life gets a lot better once you grow up and mature and especially after you meet someone you love or have kids. It just gives life a whole new meaning and school is just a bad memory that we wish to put behind us.
  • Yes, high school sucked. Due to my parent's religion, I wasn't allowed to play any sports, go to any dances or extracirrcular activites of any kind. Add to that the fact that I was not allowed to have any friends outside the church and you get zero social life. As far as school itself, there was nothing either great or horrible, but being 13-17 years old and having no social life made it tough.
  • It was stressful, but now that i look at it, i really did enjoy it. relationships.... very stressful
  • Nope! I loved it! Tenth grade year was good, but not great. My eleventh and twelfth grade I wish I was still in! I miss all the experiences and great friends. Its hard to keep in touch when everyone is living everywhere.
  • In some ways it sucked but in others it was pretty average as far as I'm concerned. It mostly sucked only because there were things going on outside of school that kind of had an effect on my grades during Sophmore/Junior year.
  • YES! I had 3 friends total, was an outcast, went to the Vo-Tech so the teachers hated me, constantly critized for being poor (this was a rich kid school) and was the target for bullies all the time.
  • high school really didn't suck all that bad now that I look back on it, although I thought that it was the worst thing ever at the time, my grades were so bad because i had all honors classes and I really wasn't that great at school work... I had a huge group of friends, they were pretty much my family. I don't talk to them anymore though, except my best friend and I talk to a few of them every once in a while... I moved to another state a few years back though, so I don't have to see any of them. My only regret is that I didn't take grades more seriously and just finish school, I am in college now but, I wish I would have gone back after school...
  • Boring and stupid. It was no fun until I met the girl that eventually became my wife. Our dates had nothing to do with the school except for the PROM. High school was no challenge, I took the college prep. course but would have probably done better if they had advanced classes. That kind of class didn't come along until my kids were in high school.
  • It was hard for me because I never quite fit in and people couldn't ever figure me out so I was mostly to myself. It's the past and I can talk about it and laugh now.
  • Yes it did... thanks for the memories!
  • Yes. Glad it's over.
  • No, I am happy that I got a good high school education. I think it sucks a lot worse now. Nobody seems to care about learning, and the students can really be rude and offending to one another.
  • I think that it sucked because of my attitude not because it actually did. I recently became re aquainted with all of my old friends from High school on facebook. and my opinion of them and school in general changed with my age and maturity. I realized, I had a great bunch of friends that I really miss a lot and love too! *I always was a miserable little bitch that couldn't see the forrest for the trees.
  • i hated high school b/c my school treated my grade so bad! they cut our senior cut day (but we cut anyway!), they messed up our year book and they were building another building near the senior parking lot so they had to close half the parking lot so we were all fighting over parking spots and some of us had to park across the street from the school and risk getting tickets. it was just ridiculous! thank god i'm out of there! so YES it sucked for me!
  • Ummm, the school didn't
  • Neither very bad or very good. It was very mediocre, but that was the late 1960's.
  • Yes, high school was terribly painful and insecure time for me. I had a few friends, they tried to put me in special education classes - I declined - and because I wasn't good at math the counselors and teachers thought I wouldn't amount to anything. My 20th anniversary high school reunion is coming up this fall and it just brings back those memories of bad grades, few friends and pain and insecurity. Yuck. Even on my Facebook page I'm sick of the constant suggestions to add former high school classmates. I felt so shunned and lonely in high school. I guess I have to make a conscious choice to not think about high school. Ever again.
  • When I was still a high school student, yes it sucks for me and I always want holidays, class suspension and everything. But I enjoyed though! And now that I'm in college, I badly miss my high school days.
  • No! Actually I liked it VERY much! I had a boyfriend that caused me a few problems; but NOT high school itself!
  • High School was something that varied for me because my mom moved me around so much. Some schools would be great and others would be... not really terrible but difficult because they had already formed friendships and was comfortable with the number they had.
  • My life pretty much sucked, back then (molested) but school was cool. I moved a lot, went to several schools, but made friends quickly, good grades, liked most of my teachers, had a bf.
