Rephrase: hating school — drop out for alternative?
What are the alternatives to high school?
I don’t think homeschooling will work for my situation, but as I said before, my parents are very supportive and will let me do whatever I want to within reason. I recently found out about GEDs …
I don’t feel that I really learned anything in high school (for the most part), but that changed once I got to college. It would probably be smartest to stick it out for the rest of high school and then try college.
In college, the courses are a lot quicker (not year-long like HS, but usually quarters/semesters) and there is the whole being on your own thing which is new and exciting.
Colleges sometimes look down upon GED’s and/or homeschooling, so it may be difficult to get into a college with one of those. Staying in high school is your best opportunity.
Just know that you are not alone. A lot of people hate high school as much as you are. I hated it myself, although I thought it was really easy and a waste of time. It may feel like you aren’t learning, but if you think about it, I am sure you learned some things. Maybe your problem is that you think that the things you are learning are not important.
Stick with high school and look forward to college. Trust me, it will get better and more challenging and you will actually learn a lot of stuff, especially once you start taking detailed courses about things you are interested it.
GEDs aren’t rated as high as a diploma.
Talk to your teachers. Why don’t you feel you are learning? Perhaps you need to take a more hands on class – like drafting. Think about what you want to do, take a look at the requirements that the schools you are thinking about for college and see how they line up with what you are taking.
Talk to your teachers, and maybe a guidance counselor. See if you can identify what your stresses are, and maybe keep a journal so you can see where you are spending your time.
*how fast primary school has gone (how many years)
*This quote: “in 30 yrs, it won’t matter what clothes you bought, what colour your hair was and what shoes you wore, what matters is what you learnt”.
*School is a privilege. Some kids don’t get to go to school because their parents are too poor
*You are learning for your future.
*In a few years time you will want to go back to school because you will miss it, no matter how hard it was for you.
