in some classes I would be a real goody two shoes but in others my teachers would absolutely hate me because of how much i messed around
I like being in school as there were so many activities. Imagine I had to stay back in school for all 6 days as I participated in activities like tennis, table tennis, badminton, electronic club, NCC, swimming, etc. It is so much fun!
But nowadays, school is not the same as it is very pressurize.
I was a little snot. Lol during elementary school I never spoke and did my work. In Highschool I was a straight A student so I decided that I never had to be there. Gave my teachers attitude when they tried to discipline me. Walked out on them while they were talking, refused to attend detention when it was assigned and just flat out did whatever I wanted.
That is the problem with the grading system, the kids who can pull easy As don't have to do anything, there is nothing the teachers can do to control them.
I was a pretty good kid in school. I liked high school the best as far as academics. In high school I made all A's and B's. We didn't have a middle school when I was growing up, so elementary was 1st thru 8th grade. I struggled in math, history and science in elementary. But that all changed when I got to high school. I think it may of been the quality of teachers I had once in high school - they seemed to be so much better, or at least took an interest in us as individuals. I was really shy in both elementary and high school, so I don't think it was anything I did different. For some reason by that age, everything in my brain starting clicking properly. LOL.
I have spent the most of my school days looking out of the window and dreaming about the world outside, that surely must be more interesting than this repetitive stuff we learn over and over in our classroom...maybe I should add I was growing up in the Communist state with political slogans and regimental upbringing:)
Even though my grades were fairly good, I was terrible in high school. I was a prankster, I skipped school and classes as often as possible, which ended up getting me kicked out, and that was a wake up call. as by that time, my parents had enough. I started working at 16, taking the first stupid job I found and ended up going to night school for another ten years in order to finish my education. So it is fair to say I did things the hard way. My advice to youngsters : you can suffer a liitle now or a lot later.
I loved school and had lots of friends and good grades. I was way too thin and sometimes kids teased me. Re behavior, I never got in trouble Kids that liked school and got into sports and activities usually stayed out of trouble. High school years were best years of my life.
Been always a miss goody toe shoes with an extreme curiosity in world history and social studies.I did quite well academically and breezed through college easily through scholarships but i always questioned why do i always have to be stacked up with other students as far as academic accomplishments are concerned.I would prefer to have been a journalist or a travel writer but Ended up in the medical field through pressure of the scholarship grants i was recieving and also from my family who value higher education like a prime commodity.my unsolicited advice to students
:Follow the dictates of your heart when it comes to attaining your dreams.Don't let anybody influence your decision.

I attended kindergarten in 1975 in a Deerlodge, MT. My teachers name was Mrs. Hart. How about you, where did you go to school? Pick whatever age you like.

How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the same age as 8th grade in the US.

Did you go to college right after high school?
