3rd Grade-Went from a private school that I've been in since 1st grade to a public school where there were 25 students instead of 7, and were just pure racists!
8th Grade-Changed curiculiums in the cyber school, and always having to work day in and day out at the end.

Freshman and Sophmore year of high school. You're still on the lower rungs of the high school social ladder, still have some of the awkwardness of middle school, and it just sucked overall. Got my license beginning of Junior year, and it has only gone uphill since then...
And I'm hoping my best year in school is still ahead of me.

Freshman year of high school. I had to bust my butt my senior year because of my freshman year. I failed both semesters of English and Algebra I. I was what was called Gifted Honors Freshman English. The teacher also taught AP English, which was a Senior English class taught like a college course and she taught the Gifted Honors Freshman class like a college class. Total deer in the headlights moments for me the entire year. I basically gave up on the class halfway through the first semester. I should have dropped down to Honor Freshman English after the first semester. As for Algebra I, I just had trouble with it. Doing the work in class and homework I could do it, but come test time, it would go away. This put me behind for two years, as when I should have been a sophomore, I was still classed a freshman, and when I should have been a junior, I was a sophomore (even if I hadn't failed another semester of English, I just didn't want to do the work, and first semester I barely passed the class). By what was supposed to have been my junior year, I had gotten myself back on track, and the summer before my senior year I made up one of the English classes I failed, and made up the other two my last semester of high school (took a writing class to make up one of them, and went to night school to make up the other).

Quoting ScarletHarlot (Reply 4): 11 - 15 year old girls are just total bitches. I am so glad I never have to go back to those years.
Theyr'e hitting those puberty years and riding that cotton pony is no day at the beach for them. It's not you!. For me, it's a tossup between 6th., 7th. and 10th. grades. However through all my school years, I earned frequent detention miles! When I could ditch class, I did it and, math was always teetering on the brink of F Troupe!

Definitely 4th grade when I just moved back from Chile and got all mixed up with a cranky load of a bunch of Costa Rican a$$hole kids (to be honest, 80% of the people in this country are a**holes). They brought me down to a point I can't even believe right now. I started to get along with them years later, but now that I think about it I don't know how is it that now I shake hands with them.
That's part of my hating for this land up to some point.
Well I must say I don't like schools, schools sucks, is like the worst of the worst of the things ever. I hate when people say:
"Oh high school is the greatest time"
YEAH RIGHT?!? Well if you think it's cool and -surfed on "the wave"- perhaps, but I don't give a damn about school. Get there 1 minute before it starts, and I get out of there even before the bell rings.
I'll always remember school, well except the year I spent in the US last year, as the worst time of my life, I can't wait to get out of it! (I'm in 10th, graduate next year). I have a big hating space available in my heart and it'll go all to school.

Year 8. Got suspended for defending myself when attacked, and then moved school at the end of the first term because I was sick and tired of the school. I settled into my current school that year, it was not too bad because I knew quite a few people there but it still was not easy. Also, I still had a lot of problems with people from my old school, although those eventually got settled.

Quoting USAFHummer (Reply 6): Middle School...grades 6-8...hell on earth is the only way to describe those years...
I definantley agree with that; my middle school years were horrid. Teasing was in full force and I had terrible teachers, I basically hated the world while in Middle School. My school was really twisted as well, back then the school demographics were primarily white-christian (they've marginally changed within the past years) and I came from a different background with a different religion and was given hell for it, especially during the palestinian riots in the late 90s. Kids in middle school can be really cruel. If I ever make a lot of money I'll be sending my future children to private school. There's no need for them to go through what I went through those years.

Sophomore Year of College, Fall Semester 1981.
My high school sweetheart had dumped me, with no goodbye, no less. I hated the school, and was thinking of leaving. I had not made any friends, the year before, and as I had not pledged the music frat my freshman year, I was sort of looked at as an outcast. I had not intended to stay where I was, and wanted to go to a school, either WITH, or closer to my girl friend. So I'd just not participated in much, as a freshman.
She gives me the boot in October. Just before Homecoming, so now I have no date, and the pickin's are slim, for finding one. I hate the dorm I'm in, too, as it's a party dorm, and I'm a light sleeper.
Then, while helping someone push their car, I get my pant leg caught in the fender skirt of his Chrysler New Yorker, and it ends up running over my foot, at an angle. I was lucky enough to only get a serious sprain. But now I have to hobble to class, on crutches.
I decided to go ahead and pledge the fraternity, and was elected pledge class president, but my mom, who had been ill on-and-off, for years, suddenly expected me to come home every weekend and sit with her. So I start missing pledge functions, and resigned being the president, so some one who is able to be there all the time, can run the show. All the actives started giving me sh*t about that, and I almost dropped the pledgeship, totally.
If you don't stand for SOMETHING, you'll fall for ANYTHING.

This year (11th grade). This past year has been the hardest I've ever done. I was struggling the entire year to get passing grades and somehow I got past all of that! It was in the worst classes I had ever had, CISCO Networking and Spanish level 2. (In the DoDDS system, D- or 60% is passing but it doesn't look great on your transcript). DoDDS is the military school system for the children of US military stationed at bases in Europe and Asia.

Quoting ScarletHarlot (Reply 4): Grades 7 - 10. Miserable years. 11 - 15 year old girls are just total bitches. I am so glad I never have to go back to those years.
Boy, you're not kidding--they're evil, and if you aren't "popular," they make your life an absolute living hell. And guess who was the biggest dork in the school? I remember once having gotten on the wrong side of the bitch who ruled the sixth grade, and after school about 80 kids showed up at my house to see her beat me up.
Fortunately, my big brother turned the hose on them. And I got the last laugh when she got knocked up in the 10th grade (she was 15 at the time). Karma is the geek's best friend!

I'm gonna say grade 7,8,9,10. I was overweight with acne and braces during those years. Lucky for me I started to work out summer between 10 and 11th grade. Girls never talked to me my friends weren't friends. It's weird how people/things change.
