School is basically death.

School is a place that makes people feel like they are failures and make children and teens depressed because of the pressure of homework and grades and their parents and teachers expectations are far too high which adds stress to the children and teens who cannot be perfect and meet the expectations.

It is also a place where some people have to pick between their own mental and physical health and their grades.
History Class at School:

Teacher: "(student name), please read your report outloud."

Student: *tries to pick between embarassing self because social anxiety or getting a bad grade*

A WIERD, strange place where the norm is routine and loads of other stuff.
They put repetetive activies as "learning" just by making them more complex every year and expect us to know square roots and all the numbers of Pi (Overexpectation).
For a VERY short period of time you can do social interaction with your mates and get snitched on all day. Then usually you get stuck in a future involving "cubicle" "office job" "Mcdonalds Drive Through" and "Toilet Cleaner".
Do I have to?

I already written about school.

A place where you learn useless shit. You cant get up, use the fucking bathroom or have freedom. Then, 7 dreadful hours pass.. well I guess all that work wasn't enough so we get homework that usually takes 1 - 2 hours. I dont think things should be drilled into your mind, learn slowly and smooth. Oh and did I not mention if you break a rule you go into detention..
School: 18 years of prison
Prison: hell..
Hell: Terrible.

A place where most of the kids are hypocrites and don't know shit about themselves. A place where you're forced to go or you're considered "retarded". This is the government's legal institution for prison. Adults don't get along with the kids. Children used to be valued.
Yo you're a pussy.

Talk to her.

(Stays in silence)

School is fulled with hypocrites.

School, a time that you spend working for your headteachers so as to get decent grades for when you work for your boss. So that you can retire at an old age and use your svaings to watch daytime TV in a rocking chair. Then die, happy and content with the knowledge that you passed some of your GCSE's.
Step 1. School
Step 2. Work
Step 3. Retire
Step 4. Die

School is a place to gain life experience, meet different types of people, learn valuable lessons, gain social interaction, and prepare you for the real world. It's also a place where you will find teachers that hate you, bullies, the popular crowd you'd probably give anything to be in if you're not in, and unfairness all around. Homework, projects, tests, and other ways of making you feel like dropping out.

At some point during your schooling career, you'll most likely have to deal with the issue of clothes. Apparently they make a really big difference. If you don't wear name brand (ex. Aeropostale, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister), you'll probably get made fun of. Of course, buying a $50 shirt that probably isn't even of higher quality makes you that much cooler. Rest assured, once you're out of high school, nobody is gonna give a crap what you wear.

And then there are the relationships. School also serves a purpose as a dating hub. A place for people to find matches. To find the kind of love in which they ignore everyone but their significant other when they're around.

Drama is also found in this big zoo. He said she said, relationship drama, rumors, and the classic fight.

This place is a test, just like puberty. The strong ones persevere and make it out. The weak, well, don't make it. After graduation, you'll probably realize how much you'll miss this place, unless you went to a really bad school.
Jerry: Mom, I don't wanna go to school today. Don't make me go!

Mom: I'm sorry Jerry, we can't have you kids walking about all day. Off to jail, oh um, I mean school with you.
