My high school was notorious for 2 things. Number one; messing up stuff and not telling people about it. Number two; selling over priced things.
I would say 3 out of the 4 years of high school I ended up in classes I did not sign up for.
I thought I mentioned that before. He was like why don’t you want French? He would never let me change my classes. Like ever. If it was too hard or I didn’t like it or messed with my schedule it was always a “no”. I had to beg and plead with that guy to change it.
When I wanted to change my US history class he told me I was doing poorly because I didn’t study correctly. But everybody was doing poorly in that class. Why did they always defend that teacher? Was he really that great? It was always my problem. I think that’s why I ended up staying in math for so long. I knew he would not change it and my father would be mad at me for not trying hard enough.
Sophomore year was my hardest working year. I don’t care what anybody says. It’s the only year I had in high school with one elective. Junior year was hard, but not as hard. Plus you got more perks and more electives. You got 2 that year/grade. And no more P.E. unless you wanted it as an elective or you failed it in a previous grade. When I got my schedule at first it seemingly looked good. I saw all the classes I signed up for.
That is the one thing I like about college some stupid counselor is not trying to get you to take psychics because they think it would be a class you like or help you to get into college. Or you got put in a class because they felt like it. The counselors there were just as bad, but they could not sign you up for something you didn’t want that was on you or not. If you didn’t want to take watercolor painting or basic Japanese you didn’t have to. Unless the class is unavoidable and you need it for your major.
My counselor did not care about me anyway all he cared about was trouble makers. And every year the number of counselors got smaller and the number of students they had to deal with bigger. First there were 4 then there were 3 by my senior year there 1 and a half counselors. When there was thing thing seniors needed a counselor to sign. One of the counselors (not mine) went on a trip to Yosemite with a school club. He was not the leader of the club. Why did he decide to go to Yosemite with a school club? After the club came back from their trip they brought back a video of their trip for my English class to watch. When ever that counselor would appear on screen. Everybody yelled at the video “Why did you leave? You suck!”.
Why didn’t the school just bother to tell the students the computer broke or something? Some people like my friend had no 5th period. Nothing not even a wrong class. I ended up in the wrong art class. More on that later. I got my 4th, 5th and 6th period classes changed.
