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?
