The class in which you write paper after paper and essay after essay of COMPLETE BULLSHIT. You gotta analyse the shit out of those poems and you gotta learn the shit out of those plays.

Another stupid class.
You start off the year, doing easy shit like a review or some shit, but by September or October, you're being forced to read some gayass book written in 1950 about some 11 year old faggot who got lost on an island or some shit. Most people don't give enough fucks to actually read the goddamn book, and use Spark Notes and Wikipedia to write their essay. You get more homework then in any other class. The average homework for a 7th-10th grader consists of reading some shit book, writing some shit essay, doing some shit worksheets or filling in shit answers on your Spelling book. Over all, this class sucks, the homework sucks and school sucks.

And to make shit worse, there is ZERO FUCKING things to learn in English class.
If you're ever forced to take this class, well, sucks for you. I just flunk the goddamn english class.

A boring ass class where we do a ton of of essays and nothing interesting happens in the fucking class and everybody in the class is scared of the teacher! Yeah the cringy joke making, sweet hearted, softie! Apparently the teacher is a goddamn nightmare! But she isn’t and almost everybody in that class is misbehaving in other classes I have with them but not in this class though. The students say they aren’t scared but they are actually lying
Me: English class is boring AF and everybody is scared of Mrs Campbell and I don’t know why!

Atreyu: Carter nobody’s scared of Mrs Campbell, it’s just 2nd period, everybody’s tired, and it is really early in the morning.

Carter: Yeah sure.

A class that teaches students about the English language. During the early years, English is a very useful, important, and most of all fun class. By middle school, however, English class becomes a redundant class where students are taught the exact same things (basic grammar and punctuation, paragraph structuring, etc) over and over again. By high school, the fun and useful class has been completely replaced by an idiotic course where too much emphasis is placed on over-analysis and essay writing (where the teacher usually tells the students to write a five page essay that could be easily done in three), and less emphasis on creativity. High school English is the period where many idiots get the impression that Shakespeare is the only playwright to exist in EVER and that no significant literature has been published since the late Victorian era.
An average English class:
English teacher: Today kids, we're going to go over basic grammar and punctuation for the five billionth time right before I start fellating Shakespeare!
Students: Hooray!

Possibly the gayest class on earth after 7-8th grade (Pre grade 7-8 VERY useful class). A class where one has to over analysis ever little detail in a play, story, essay etc.

Marks are solely based off what kind of teacher you have. You can have the teacher that really doesn't care that much and will give a mark of 80%+ for doing jack shit. Or you can have the kind of teacher that over analysis' ever sentence of your essay and as a result will reward you with a shitty mark (eg 60%) Even though you spent hours on the essay.

The final years of English (grade 11&12 especially 12)is, for some reason, the most important class to take and is technically the only "true" prerequisite for university or college (being that you can get into uni/college programs with only English and no need for math or the sciences and every uni/college program requires English).

In conclusion, English class can either be a walk through the park or hell on Earth for 5 months. Either way it requires you to over analysis ever little detail in plays, essays, stories etc. and make up bullshited thesis' and thematic statements that no one gives a RATS ASS ABOUT. It will usually become your most hated class (doesn't matter what teacher you have) because of the overall stupidity of it and the lack of actual knowledge gained.
Average teenage male after reading Hamlet in English class:

ATM: Wow, that was the gayest piece of shit I've ever read...

High School English teacher conversation:

Class A student: Hey, what'd you get on your essay, I got 90%

Class B student: 60% and I spent 4 hours on it I have a HARDASS teacher

Class A student: LOL I spent an hour and got 90%, I think it's because my teacher doesn't care though lol....

After 5 months of grade 12 English:

Bob: Hey what do you learn in English this year

Fred: Nothing, just like the previous years.

probably the most useless class in school. analyzing sentences and poems and crap for no good reason. all you can really do with your knowledge about it is say "i know what a sentence is" and "i know that shakespeare wrote some crap".
