Highschool...

Recommended Posts

Is it worth dropping out of highschool and getting a GED? I mean, I can barely sustain a C in most classes, and that's with all this Resource Room bullcrap (basically having someone there to help you with stuff all the time)... my average score on most of my Intro Alg 1 assignments is about 50-60%, and the best grade I have is a B in English 1, and that's only because I'm a gifted reader, even if I did start off late. The only class I have any chance of doing better in is Art 1, but half of the asshats in there hate it and just took it so they could get get easy credits, and make it near impossible to work when they're constantly chattering, calling me names that I thought I had heard the last of in the 6th grade, and... brace yourself... throwing pieces of paper at me while I'm trying to do my work... I remember having that crap done in the 3rd grade, and then people grew out of it. Today, they even decided to throw an eraser at me... my revenge was sweet when I licked it and chucked in one of their faces.

 

And the teacher doesn't give a . about what goes on in there either.

 

 

So, is dropping out of highschool worth saving the pain of two-to-three more years of working around people you hate, and having parents classy lady at you for not taking Band and Choir, even though they take up your only study hall.

 

And, if anyone's wondering, I do plan on at least getting my drivers license, a cheap car, and securing a job before dropping out.

Well, some states have different laws about GED. Some say you have to be at least 16, and if you do get it, there's all kinds of restrictions. I say take the test, then drop out

only losers drop out and youre not a loser yet and you dont want to become one. companies probably look at GED's differently than having a full high school education too. but in the end its up to you.

dont collages dont look at ged's very highly i mean its better than nothing but its its barely better if you get what im saying. i had the option being homeschooled to do ged but collages around my city dont really accept many ged's so i would stick with it just get what you can get. If that means putting in a little more effort than you are now just do it get through with gay high school and then decide my $.02

This is high school? Good god. That is just juvenile...

 

As far as dropping out.... My initial response would be HELL NO! But that's easy for me, because I had an easy time in HS. I way lucky and a lot of stuff just "clicked" for me, so I didn't have to work too hard.

 

My first question is (and only you know this), is it because you don't care, or because it's too hard for you? A lot of guys in HS told me it was "too hard", but later in life they admitted that they really could have tried a lot harder.

 

Also, it really just depends on what you want to do with your life, and where you see yourself going. There's a lot of avenues that don't require formal schooling. Instead, you can advance by learning on the job. A lot of ignorant people look down on jobs like this, but realistically, you can make a VERY good living in a lot of cases. On the other hand, there's certain career paths that simply won't go anywhere without at least a bachelor's.

 

So, where do you see yourself goin?

Don't drop out. Get a tutor or read a few books on English, science, and math. The most important thing though is to try. If you don't try to do well, you won't make it.

 

 

Also, go to college and get a P.H.D. Who knows, you might start to like learning. In college, students focus more on doing well, not on bugging people.

 

The best of luck to you. :)

Yea, I had gotten tired of them... the class of '09 here has become infamous for having only a handful of good students (me and some friends).

 

Anyway, while I may think otherwise later on (or realise otherwise later on), right now it IS too hard for me. Especially math... hell, I couldn't even find the area of a few simple polygons with the help of a calculator.

 

Would you mind listing some of those jobs that don't require formal education? There just may be something there that I'll like.

I'm in high school right now, and as much as I hate it at times, I would never consider dropping out. It would put your entire future at risk...why not have as many open doors as possible? Life has its ups and downs, hang in there.

im in high school but i never really had a hard time with other ppl.. all the crap just stopped after elementary school.. dont really know why, but people are just free to hang out with whoever they want to .. well.. with some exceptions.. but seriously .. DO NOT DROP OUT! if you drop out your risking your future and the future of any kids that you might have... as well for math, slow down and try to think in generalized terms.. not just omg omg omg how am i gonna solve this. if u get an equation think of when you can use it and when you cant.. just a thought ..

The part they didn't tell you is that they pulled it out of their butt... :blink:

 

Dropping out of school is for losers... If you really tried and put half as much effort into school as you do into your computer games you wouldn't do half bad. I swear kids have to TRY to do badly in classes. I bs my way through my work and still get A's...

 

Oh yeah... and if you're going to drop out because of this then what are you going to do when life gets hard, drop out of that too? Stop bitching and step it up, you're in high school.
