I hate it here- school work is the worst

School is exhausting.
I+hate+it+here-+school+work+is+the+worst

   When school is brought up amongst highschoolers, the most common answer is- “I hate it here”. For teenagers, school feels like a prison and causes stress and anxiety: weekends feel too short, the school day feels too long. Homework piles up and individuals struggle to keep up with their classes.

    Micheal Morales (‘27),  a Freshman, expresses what he thinks as he learns more of the schools ways for the first time as his first year in highschool.

   “No, I don’t like school. I work hard everyday, I get straight A’s but no recognition, nothing in return. I come here and dress-to-impress and do my best and then not get any recognition for anything I do here,” Morales said.

   Based on new.yale.edu, students are bored 69.51% of the time.  Morales actively attempts to make his school experience more positive beyond academics. 

   “What I would do to make school more enjoyable is make more activities, like cultural activities that express other things and people, and add a difference to the school. I do the same stuff everyday. It’s so repetitive and boring,” Morales said.

   School is a place that is said to prepare young kids for the future, but are students liking what is being prepared for them? Ina Mortfeld (‘25) explains how she feels about the school day and its repetitive nature from a Juniors standpoint.”

   “I enjoy school depending on the day. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I hate it. It’s boring and too much work and I have better things to do. It wastes my time. So I would try and make classes more interesting for students,” Mortfeld said.

  According to Frontiersin it’s said that 79.8 percent of students are stressed at school, and 69.5 percent of students find it boring. Yousif Tilb (‘27) says what he thinks of  the loads of work that he has to bring home and do each day.

   “No, [I don’t like school]. It’s stressful and there’s too much homework. A specific class here makes me very upset and is very annoying to be in,” Tilb said.

    The way students feel about school is bored, tired, and stressed most of the time. The74million shows a national survey finds nearly 1 in 3 teens are bored in school, and presents a majority report shows high level of stress.
