    I hated high school as well.

    Hated having to memorize this, and having to memorize this, and then by the time the midterm and final came around, I forgot it all anyways.

    But now, after being out of school for a while, I miss being around people my own age. I spent some time working, and I'm now taking corporate training classes (everyone's older than me).

    Everything much more boring for me now, and I don't have money go to college, and I've got to go join the Navy or Air Force or something to get scholarship money so I can go back etc.

    Take my advice, enjoy it, and don't worry about grades, worry about learning.

    Sshool is ok for me. I'm living through it at least. My programming classes really help. That's what makes me want to come to school.
    Do (any of you) feel like you can do so much more on your own?
    I know that I can do a lot more on my own. I try to take as many indepndent studies as I can. That way I can really focus and learn. I also can't wait until college next fall, it is going to be awsome.

    I don't worry about my grades, my mother worries about them to the point that you would swear that they were hers. I just stick to learning math too fast for school and watching my grade plummet because of it.

    what really hacks me off about school is the homework. ive found that the more homework a teacher gives the less i like their class. low homework classes have typically been my favorite as long as the subject material was sligthly interesting.

    yes govtcheese my logic is simple. maybe one of these days the teachers will catch onto this fact and stop giving out craploads of boring unneeded tedious homework. i doubt it though.

    I've always hated classes where they give out busy-work assignments ("Do problems 1-57 - they're all the same"), but I usually enjoy big projects where I can do research and stuff... That's pretty cool.

    i would agree with you there. i also hate it when a teacher is gone for something and they just give you a crap assignment like the one you described to take up the hour. i had that experience in math on monday.

    Yeah, that's always nice, too. How come (in high school) none of the subs have any knowledge of the subject itself? I don't know how many times we had a music teacher in our AP Calc class...

    at our schools they just have several regular subs. sometimes it seems like they just pulled someone in off of the street. we have one that lets us do whatever we want though, cause she is really timid.

    Or a kindergarten teacher in chem. In eighth grade my history class had a permanent sub who could very easily get talked into telling stories about "back in the winter of ot-two" and the like.

    Research only helps if I like the topic and since most of the classes I've had just say "research this topic" with out giving much free reign, research tends to suck.

    especially when the subjects to choose from are limited. and when you need five certain required sources. like a magazine, newspaper, book, almanac and internet. that sucks. i can get most of my info from a good ol world book encylopedia.

    My senior year in HS, we had a research project for AP History. We could research anything from the 20th century. It was great (of course, I really enjoy history, but...) - most people got A's because they were able to pick their own topics and do whatever thy wanted with it.

    i was in gate(gifted and talented education) for students with high iq scores in middle school, and every year we got to do a report on whatever we wanted. i always did it on some conspiracy like atlantis and jfk assassination and that was pretty cool.
