We spend so much of our lives in school. Getting a good education is so important to our futures.For some of us school was a wonderful experience with treasured memories to keep over the years. Yet for others school was not a pleasant time to remember. What kind of student were you in school? Do you have fond memories of your school days?

Thank you for responding. We all have different memories of how we were as students. Popularity isn't everything in school. It is good to have special memories of school days.

LOL!!!every time i remember if what kind of student i was, i can't help to laugh, when i was a student i was the joker of the classroom, always laughing, keeping the class alive. but still when it comes to my studies i all excelled. but i think if you're going to ask my classmates if how they remember me i think they would laugh too. LOL... peace!!!

school truly is a venue for good memories. prioritizing my studies and aiming high did not stop me from having tons of fun during my high school and college years! i was able to enjoy learning through textbooks and through life experiences with the people that I seem to know for the rest of my life. thinking all about school always leaves a big smile on my face. :D

Thank you for sharing. If we didn't have the bad memories, we couldn't really appreciate the good ones.

Hi sender, I don't want to be branded boastful but during my primary years, I'm always in the section one. My first secondary school is an exclusive school for girls but because we are 11 at that time and all go to school so my last two years was spent in not so exclusive but private school. I was a very studious student and top of my section. I only spent three years in college because my father resigned from his job and I have to wait for others but when I found a job, I never like to go back and became melancholic because I hated it when my parents told me to stop.

hi sender, I definitely have many good memories of school days. Of the extra curricular activities, excursions, the school concerts and just pure fun. I think it is the sense of belonging to a community for so many years, of studying, ranting, playing together and school holidays. Innocent time when everything else is taken care of by our parents.

I was the loner type during my first three years in high school I never got real friends was often bullied. On my third year, I almost failed in my algebra. To the point that the subject teacher really talked to me about it regarding about my issues. Though majority of my classmates disliked her since she's failing a lot of us - lol - but she did her best to give me extra time in tutoring. Then came my chemistry and physics teacher who really disliked me. I don't know why. But she picks on me a lot. Just on my 4th year where I met one of my bestfriends. She was really kind and saw the real me inspite of the ugly rumors some people spread about me. So that was one of my most memorable experience. As for me as a student, I only got passable grades. College was more preferable for me because I got really nice friends and up until now - we're still communicating.

Back in high school, I was fortunate enough to be in a school where we had no distinction between the nerdy-intelligent students and the popular ones. Although I ran with the academically high achievers, we were still considered the popular kids. We had our own tables and hang-outs within the school and no 'unpopular' kid dared to invade our area. I'm sure it isn't that way anymore!

When we are in school, it is sometimes difficult t let our ourselves be seen as intelligent. Sometimes it isn't always the popular place to be. I am glad you were able to persevere in school and still be popular too.

Hi there! Yes, i do have many unforgettable moments in school and to tell you honestly, i do missed being a student always. Being in school for me before was like being in my second home. I do love to learn so many thing plus the fact that i acquired greater knowledge each day, together with my teachers, classmates and friends. I have so many fond memories at school, some of them was being with my best friends while practicing our dance presentation full of laughter and joy, there's this instance that we also make our classrooms as hangout place if the professor for that time was late or absent. We had our snacks and drinks ready while chatting and laughing with our jokes. My memories at school before was so precious that i could treasure them for the rest of my life. Good night!

There is so much to experience during our school years. Disappointements and achievements were around every corner. It's good to see that your school years brought you so much to traaure. it is a good time for reflecting on the days of youth.

Ya I have so many good memories of school, and also I have some bad one.Playing with friends, skiping classes, making some noise while the lecture is on, and sometime when teacher caught us getting punishments.But one thing I surely miss is the friends, who I made in school......so I can say it was very good time when I was in the school.......And what about you do you have any good memories to share with us? do you?......

I was a bright student in academics as well as in extra co curricular activities.I was a very good orator and had won many prizes in various debates and speech competitions but in all I was a very shy kind of a girl during my school days.I had few friends only and was very much introvert.I was very sensitive and used to be a disciplined student..
