A lot of us here has probably gone through or is experiencing High School. Question is, did you enjoy it? Yes or no? And why? In my case, I didn't. Gangsters, retarded teachers (someone who gets pissed when you offer your help) social climbers, teen angst, teen stupidity and lots of bad memories. Only good thing about my HighSchool is, there I met my most loyal friends.

I think I enjoyed my High school life.. There have been lots of activities during High school and I joined almost all of them. Though I am not the active one, I was usually forced to join, specially on Quiz bee's, because of my abilities.. What I don't like about high school memories are my friends back then.. They have been my friends for years way back in high school but I can't understand what happened now.. They are gone, and even if they are still my friends on face book, they don't seem to remember me at all.. They go out, a few of my classmates back then, but they doesn't bother to invite me.. Though there are few who are still my friends right now.. and I appreciate them so much.. But overall, I think High School is fairly fun.

Seems like you really did enjoy your HighSchool life. :) Loss of friends, same thing I experienced. Right now I can count my friends with my hand. Back in Grade School I had lots of friends, HighSchool came and they changed and turned against me. I really don't know how loss of friends go.

it's all part of life,to have and lost our friends,but true friends will remain. there maybe some good things and bad things that happened to us during high school days but all of it now was all a part of the past. and yes,it's a sad thing that our friends before were not the same as today.

Yes sinrealm, I did enjoy high school for the most part of it.. Though it's sad to think my friends changed a lot now.. And they aren't into being with me as their friend i guess..Even if that's so, I guess if they come up to me and say, hi friend! then I would surely wave back and say Hi to them also.. i mean, I don't have hard feelings on them.. It's with them if they don't want me,or not even remember me at all.. But it's okay.. Friends would definitely come and go, but the most loyal and precious are the ones who will stay with us..

Not particularly. I went to two different high schools and graduated a year early. My first high school had decent teachers, but some of the staff were horrrrrible - I had one call me a "rip with a bad attitude" after my mother confronted her about an incident that took place involving her. I was constantly made fun of, hit, kicked, shoved, and I had boys touch me inappropriately numerous times. Many students there were disrespectful in just about every way possible. If my parents hadnt announced that we were moving in between terms, I would have dropped out. On my final day at the first high school I clearly remember telling the principal to shove it with a twist and that if they considered my family moving so that we could have a better life "running away" that they really didnt have any business educating me. At that school, most of my grades were Cs, one A, and a couple of Ds. During the summer we moved, and I went to the school that I had went to for 7th grade. I didn't really have any more friends than I did at the first school, but everyone there was MUCH more mature than at the other school. The staff were friendlier and would always make time for us students. My grades got me on the top honor roll during just the first quarter. AND... I got to graduate when I was still 16, which was VERY uncommon at the time.

From what school was this? Seems like you owe that school a lawsuit.

A little crap school in Illinois. There were only about 230 students in the entire 9-12 grade combined. It wouldnt have mattered much without people/proof to back up my statements.

I loved high school! i didnt realize how much i loved it until i got to college. High school was fun for me because you were basically able to get away with anything. It was so easy. My friends made it even more fun. Laughing all the time in the hallways, pranking each other, going to school parties together. It was great. When i got to college and i started to experience the real work, then i really missed high school. I didnt have a care in the world. College was when i started to feel the real pressure

I don't enjoy my high school time. As at that time the study pressure was so heavy. Everyday there were many homework for us. And the worse thing was I didn't know how to finish them because they were just too difficult to complete. And my schedule was full of lessons. We had to go home late everyday. And sometimes we even had to go to school in the holiday. It's the nightmare for me. I love China

I had a really bad experience with High School, I was bullied throughout my schooling, including my former friends, so I don't have any positive memories of it unfortunately. Teachers weren't very helpful since they did nothing about my problems. As a result I had depression on top and it really messed me up, I was living in fear. But I can say that the few things I miss are my 2 favorite teachers. The past is the past, so I'm not that bothered to be honest. I'm just one of those unlucky ones. ^^;

Honestly, I didn't enjoy my high school not because of the usual problems, but because I don't have any friends to be trusted. It's normal to have problems but I don't have anyone to say these to any of my friends.

Yes I enjoy my high school days than any other level of any of my school days. Of course start of being a teenager, curious of all things. The bonding with teachers and classmates, school mates and close friends. This are the things that I always remember every now and them I was a good student at the time that is why my teachers love me and until now they still keeping in touch with me even I am away from our country. Lots of memories we have with my high school close friend and every year we have a get together.

hello there! somehow i enjoy my highschool life but not as much as i enjoy my college life. hehe what i just like about high school is that its the time when i don't have much worries in life except passing the exams. with regards to friends, i'm sad to say that i don't really meet my loyal and true friends in highschool because when we went to college, then i realized that those friends that i thought are my real friends in highschool just gone bad leaving me in my lowest time. i enjoy my college life because i already have my independence that time and that was the time that i got my firsts. hehe and that's also the time that i come to kno who my real friends are. high school life is fun yes but its not for me.

there are things i have experienced during high school days which brings happiness to me whenever i remember them. but there are also bad things that happened during high school. i have a misunderstanding with my group of friends which makes me realize they are not deserving to be my friend. we can't please everyone.that's life. but still,it gives us lessons as we grow. and those bad things that happened make us a better person in life. high school life is not bad at all.cause i have learned many things from that time as i remember those memories i had back then,not all things in life i can always achieve,like those guys that i have liked and don't like me back.and those achievements in studies which i do fail at times. i admit,i am not good at all when it comes to studying. but at least i've tried.

If I say truly then I had not enjoyed my high schools life because I had no any good friend in my high schools. But I enjoyed full in my intermediate. Yes because then I studying in another city. I did my intermediate from another city. So that was my really college life which I enjoyed fully with friends. And I never forget those days. I think that day was golden day of my life.
