a penis on the wall gets me every time i lol'd

RE: My school pros and cons - Mælstrom - 01-12-2012 10:26 AM

I drew a large box on the school's washroom wall that was titled: Draw a penis or joint on here. As of December 21st, the box has over 47 drawings of genitalia confined into it's 8 inch spacing.

• There are a few teachers who are awesome, especially my history teacher
• Some of the kids there are very self-aware of the duldrum and wastefulness that is Western public secondary education
•Good music program and talented artists

• Strictly religious, anti-atheist and homophobic
• Uniforms strip away the individuality of me and my peers
• Most teachers are arrogant, ageist, and reek of huge egos
• You can't sketch or write poetry in your notebook without being called a "nappy wanker faggitino" or some mixture of Italian-Canadian insults
• If you're not Italian, British or Irish, there's a high chance that you'll be relentlessly persecuted against.
• So many more obvious(and occasionally outrageous) reasons.

RE: My school pros and cons - NightThoughts - 01-25-2012 06:33 AM

Pros: Foreign language classes, semi-decent hot lunches. The occasional unbroken smart kid.
Cons: AP kids get more homework/classwork as a reward for having demonstrated mastery of the curriculum we had last year, which are repeated this year. (No, I didn't repeat) Tons of rude kids. Mean teacher who teaches the most useless subject I know of, Technology Education. At least what's in the class is useless, not the subject necessarily. Out of control band. Tons of time devoted to Rachel's Challenge, on our half-days. One teacher who goes against herself (multiple personalities perhaps? haha) and assigns stupid projects. Useless class called Library, that teaches nothing and repeats everything. Art class that can only be described in the English language as dumb, stupid, mindless, nonsensical, and a host of other synonyms. I could go on...

As most people who've been on here know
Obvious cons are obvious.

My school's pros:
*Some cool teachers here and there

My school's cons:
*Pretty dirty and slightly derelict.
*A bunch of cliques which I don't get along with. Swag kids/fake gangstas and the really stereotypical Latina girls are the ones that get on my nerves the most.
*Crap lunch. And the cafeteria has a god-awful smell.
*That history teacher that always gets on my nerves.
*Police on campus, and pretty bad zero tolerance policy.
*Really boring-looking place in general.
*Some pretty strict rules, like no iPods on campus.

My school pros and cons - Chanku - 01-08-2014 09:15 AM

My school pros and cons - chained to desk - 01-08-2014 09:35 AM

-Two teachers who respect students(out of 6 periods)
-Some respectful and nice students(although there are annoying ones,
but the annoying kids don't purposely try to annoy you)

-You can't leave during lunch, break is only 15 min, lunch is only 30 minutes
-2 police officers on campus
-No joke,none of the rooms have windows
-All buildings look the same
-Some asshole teachers
-Homework, and homework over WEEKENDS.(odd, only end of workweek for adults?)
-PE required for two years, in which we do nothing pretty much
-Most teachers won't let you use your phone in class(with only two exceptions)
-Many teachers just drone on and on without ever letting students talk
-The bell. I absolutely despise it, it's so loud and annoying.
-Every single desk is the same, and the chairs are ATTACHED to the desks. It's the stupidest chair/desk design ever, in that you
can't move around with them and you can only get in from one side.(so if you drop something over the wrong side you have to ask someone else
to grab it for you)
-Food served at lunch which is very unhealthy and tastes like shit

And the biggest con of them all,
-I must attend.

My school pros and cons - Blanket - 01-08-2014 11:37 AM

-Some really decent teachers
-A good fine arts program
-A separate hall where all the gifted kids are (I guess that's good for me? I'm not sure)
-Rewards for doing absolutely nothing at all (i.e, Cola for not getting ISS/OSS during the month of December)

-Dirty Bathrooms
-Cafeteria food. 'nough said.
-Gym class. You don't really learn anything, all the teachers want is for you to study the things they provide on their website. You also get teams that are unfairly balanced during activities.
-The proxy on computers is dumb, blocking most videos and not allowing us to access internet resources.
-Lunch is 20 minutes, and that's the only break that you have the entire day.
-Unless you're in some sort of honor fine arts/extracurricular program, you don't have a field trip. 3 years without a field trip to some place.
-No music in the halls.
-Bitchy cafeteria ladies who curse near students.
-Mandatory clubs every Friday. The clubs are mostly uninteresting, but you're forced to pick one, like Recycling club, Star Wars or...Walking club.
-Most books get absolutely destroyed after a few months.

RE: My school pros and cons - Unknown-Creation - 01-08-2014 02:08 PM


- Nice fine arts program
- There are some decent people that aren't complete dumbasses
- A Subway and a bank inside the school building itself
- Some teachers and counselors are aware of the problems with the current educational system
- You can leave campus during lunch, whether you are a freshman or senior
- Electronic devices can now be used during passing periods and in class (with teacher permission), instead of only strictly before/after school and lunch like previous years. Great for doing research, coding, texting, etc. Makes a school day easier to bear.


- The food is crap. I heard that the Subway in school charges more than the Subway chains outside, and I heard mixed things about the food.
- LOTS of idiots are crammed into the same building
- The building is severely overpopulated
- A lot of teachers are arrogant snobs
- People drop food all over the place and never clean up after themselves
- Bathrooms are fucking disgusting
- There are police officers present all the time
- Excessive use of bribery to get kids to come to school
- Truancy policy
* And many more...

My school pros and cons - Marlena403 - 01-14-2017 05:52 AM


*Very nice teachers (Except my current English teacher)
*Tasty food
*In December we watch the Christmas Panto where Year 12 and Year 13 students perform as teachers
*We are allowed to use Internet at breaktime and lunchtime (Not YouTube though)


*Stupid classmates who get others in trouble, throw things and EVEN take off my math teacher's headscarf and make her cry.
*People write things on the bathroom stalls such as "I hate you, Coldplay" and "Tick if you think you're pretty." They also write on the classroom doors and on the benches near C block and D block.
*My current English teacher treats students like dogs.

RE: My school pros and cons - RoundAndRound - 01-14-2017 07:24 AM

Little to no homework
A few nice teachers (only a few.)
Clean bathrooms.
Peers are actually kinda cool.

I can't really think of much more.

Mean teachers
Being treated like a little kid despite age.
Mean principals/directors.
This double standard system. (It would take too long to explain well here.)
The ridiculous amount of rules, as more are being made every few days.
None of the teachers really care about the students that much.
Lots of school work.
"Time out room" concept. (See second con)
We're not allowed to argue back if we have something to say.
Many more that I can't really think of easily... Cuckoo
