school isn't worth it! I have about three main reasons. One is the drama. Another is the expectations. Finally the grading system drives me into an even deeper state of depression!
16 and depressed with life!

Hey Sch,  What happened?  Is there something in specific that is upsetting you here?  I totally agree about the drama, and though you may be right in some respect that the antiquated grading system and expectations do need an upgrade in the public school system.  I think that high school is a good jumping off point to what you'll find before college and then when you go on into the work force.  My point is that there is always going to be expectations put on you regardless of what you do in life...that is just a fact.  In college you will be graded for your performance as student as you will be in a future job as an employee with annual evaluations.  The ideas are similiar, high school is meant to be a stepping stone before you move out into the world on your own.  It's a difficult time being a teenager and other kids I know can be very mean to each other. 
It seems when you post you dont mention any one thing specific, just kind of skim over generals.  I wonder if you have someone that you feel you can trust that you speak to regarding your feelings and problems.  Like a close friend maybe?

Chad..
I can remember feeling the same way about school as you do..sheesh..it's not until you leave and get out into the world that you truly appreciate your education and qualifications..but hey, you're not gonna know this til later in life lol.
Meanwhile, you are gonna have to straighten yourself up young man..and get studying eh?! No use sitting about complaining about the system that you cannot change..so, you may as well concentrate on doing school work to the best of you ability - the only expectations you have to worry about are that you can honestly say at the end of the day that you put in 100% effort to whatever you have done!

Its not that I'm not a good student. In fact I am an almost straight A+ kid! It's just my dog is in pain and I've already lost two! I try to concentrate on other stuff, but dogs are like family. I can't bear to see another one die!

Seems to me Chad that we were not speaking of dogs..in fact the headline of this was in fact 'school'.
Howerever I can certainly understand your love of dogs..and losing a pet or anyone for that matter is always an emotionally painful time.
Is this what is at the middle of all your worries Chad? Are you grieving not only for your dogs but for things like your parents divorcing etc.?
If this is the case then you must seek professional help ok!
Counselling is a very good place to start.
Do you have a school counsellor that you can make an appointment with and 'talk' out all your feelings? If so just Do It as soon as possible!
