BACK TO SCHOOL GENERAL

As we know it, summer has come to an end; it was fun while it lasted, but now the call of school beacons us from our computer screens and makes us sit down and go to class.

Now as a Softmore in highschool, I have to ask, how are you doing this school year, excited, depressed, meeting friends, any funny stories? Tell us below.

I forgot to mention I’m actually going back to a sixth form college (yes, I’m in the UK, what of it?) for a fourth year… And things have already been arranged for a further two at the same college. 6 years is a hell of a long time, but it gives me something to do and follows the natural progression of education that’s been a pattern (each school I went to I was at for one year more than the previous one, as compulsory education. Normally people are at a sixth form college for two or three years – not six. Says a lot about how willing I am for education now, huh?)

Don’t do what I did and drop out.
They may be a bunch of assholes students, and teachers, but hang in there. Don’t give up!
Don’t be like me and let your fear and hatred take over. Try to keep your head up.
and most importantly…

Wasn’t planning on dropping out; but thanks for the the encouragement nonetheless; really shows me something, honestly. Don’t lose hope yourself man, keep on truckin’ (internet thumbs up).

As for elaboration, one thing I am looking forward too is my involvement in drama club; and as for the future I would want to take some IB classes next year (IB stands for International Baccalaureate, a new international program just implemented into our school).

Though I will say, that because this year we’ve changed from a semester schedule to a trimester schedule. many kids are having a hard time with their schedules, the office is gonna be backed up for weeks XD

I just had my first day of classes as a college freshman today. I took the past year off, so I’m very happy to be in the classroom again. I’m currently studying Illustration part time in art school. I’m commuting from home instead of living on campus (which isn’t a big deal since I live, like, five minutes from the school) but over the past few days I’ve already made friends that I have a feeling will last for a long time. So yeah, I’m pretty hyped about the next year.

I take it you’re also in the UK?

If so, brofist. Not enough UK residents on this site, IMO.

I once thought that…then I realised there is a fair bunch to be honest. Oh and, did you not know already? lol

Classes this semester:

>ENG 270 (Creative Writing)
>ECON 110 (Intro to Economics)
>GLG 100 (Intro to Earth Science)
>HST 201 (US History to 1877)

English is gonna be easy since there’s no essays or tests and it’s just writing. Economics is going to moderately suck due to graded quizzes every day. Geology is fun, but I’m scared the tests will suck. And History has potential to suck depending on how bad the quizzes and tests are. My 4.00 GPA’s on the line.

And for those in High School that are feeling down, depressed, bullied, etc., don’t worry. College doesn’t put up with that shit. If you’re bullied, talk to the teacher or Campus Security. If you get a bad teacher, drop the class prior to the deadline for a full refund and get another class.

Well going to Year 11 finishing my GCSE’s.

So…..close……..to….freedom.

Freedom? Only if you want a crappy job.

Seriously, pursue further education. The years you spend will make your life so much better in the long run.

Not to mention sixth form colleges are very different from schools – and not just because everyone there WANTS to be there, though that does contribute quite a bit…

I’m pretty sure it’s a legal necessity now to go on to some sort of further education, so he actually isn’t close to freedom. themoreyouknow.jpg

Yes. A law passed in 2008 raises the age of leaving to 17 in 2013 and 18 in 2015.

Why? Too many NEETs. The British Government figured that requiring sixth-form would solve this problem.

Last year of high school already started a month ago for me because my school system is back-asswards. But it’s been pretty good so far. AP Statistics, AP Literature, Special Education Tutor – y’know, the good stuff.

When I read this I was like “Wait, why does K.C. know this and why are they telling me? What the.”

But yeah. (I thought it was 18 and that was it, but that’s interesting that it’s also 17 for this year.)
