Bruh when one of the girls talked about math compared from middle school to HS it’s sooo true, I struggled in middle school because of the way they taught math and got b- and c and now in high school I take math honors and have an A+. I was just really in my head

One of my favorite episodes Jubilee. I'm in grad school now and relate more with latter, but this really shows how social factors, or being socially acceptable, influence how kids look at the world..automotive tech, taking care of my parents, parents never did college, mental health but wanting to make parents proud vs. "trying to get out", "working my ass off," "take education for granted", "successful". Really interesting!

I procrastinate A LOT, but I still get the grades. I basically cram to get the grade. Yeah, school forces you into a system, but you have to adapt(not like me pls). Adapting is basically how you pass High School. That’s my opinion anyway; as a “Strait-A” student.

Finished HS with a 1.3 cumulative GPA. Mostly out of complete and utter apathy, I do, however, have a work ethic. I think that people can be successful in their own ways, and especially with the introduction of common core, school is nothing more than a way to weed out the less school-oriented kids from the future geniuses and technicians. Some people simply can not grasp school or any teachings for that matter. That can either mean independence or incompetence, there are some who are outright lazy by nature and they will never be successful. If you did bad and school and you’re stressing about it, you clearly have enough mental capacity to become successful in the future, even if it may be a bit more difficult without a college degree or valedictorian status. Don’t beat yourself up about grades, the world is a much different place than what it was 50 years ago, and you will live a great life if you are willing to work for it.

Good grades matter if you're poor, and have no connections. So pretty much the rest of us. If you're rich well daddy will get you in so grades don't matter.

Good grades matter if you want to go to college, but you don't need straight As to do that.

The idea that straight a students are ppl who r like really nerdy and have no social life is acc funny🤣🤣. I’m from the Uk and I consider myself quite popular with a lot of friends in that stereotypical ‘it’ group and I have really good grades all 7s and 8s (As and A*s). As long as you work hard

This was super interesting because during high school I went from a “Straight A” student in gifted or advanced classes to a “flunking” student in my last couple of years due to mental illness. So I can really see both sides of the story. I really agree with Grace when she said she doesn’t always feel she deserves her grades. I was protected from my lack of attendance and late project hand ins because teachers remembered when I was a ‘good’ student and so gave me more support and leeway than I think I would have gotten had I been a more average or lower grade student for my whole time at high school. Really interesting to look back on this time in my life as I’m about to graduate university next year 😁

I’ve been in both types. I started school late AND I failed a grade and yet I managed to skip 2 years just to graduate high school on time. I was a straight F student when I was younger and yet I graduated college with straight A’s and a 4.0 GPA. I was LUCKY that it happened!! I found a teacher who really believed in me as much as my parents did, that changed it all for me

High school work load is a joke; compared to real workplace workload. At work, no one gives a dam about your grades in high school or college.

I’m in a school that I’m probably one of the best students in the classes I take, even tho I’m an immigrant from Europe, I moved 3 months ago, and that really makes me feel sad for some reason because I feel that kids in the USA haven’t yet felt how it is to have a very strict education as the one and Europe and so they don’t try their best. In Europe we used to have 5 hours of homework per day in 7th grade and now I have 1 hour per week which makes me feel uncomfortable or weird. I don’t know if I make any sense but I believe that if everyone tried their best in the school I am attending, it would change my perspective a lot more, but for now the only thing I see are kids that don’t try their best.

I was born deaf and here I am with three college classes while I’m in high school as a junior. Who knew the deaf kid would get his hearing and within ten years be one of the highest ranking students in my school. I just think if I was born deaf and out perform people who have everything to their disposal why can’t they do better? Sure I don’t really understand English or writing as much as most people do but I feel like understanding any amount of reading and writing is a win. I don’t understand why people who have the nicest cars and the newest phones and the biggest houses don’t try as hard as me who every other morning has to fix my vehicle and work on my house and try to get my phone to work. I’m happy that I am able to follow my dreams and out perform others but at the same time I don’t think I should be topping my class as again I was born deaf and have issues with getting to school because of my vehicle. I’d like to say that people just need to try because even the deaf kid understands language.

Oy, why is your English teacher a bloody racist because you got C's in her class

Honestly, grades are such a hard thing for me to think about. I remember I was completing the square for ellipse equations. My teacher wanted to tell me I had to square 9 on the other side. He pointed to 9 on the left and said "You see, this 9 may look like a 9, but it's actually not." My school was the "smart school" and the school wanted us to find the solutions instead of being taught. The math tests were especially hard because they only gave you 6-8 questions, and the last few ones are designed to need you to "apply your knowledge in foreign concepts." I knew so many people who gave me weird faces when I told them I had a C in that one physics class freshmen year. Or when they tell me it's a given that they had all A's. My school also had both privileged and non-privileged people. Basically making this background hierarchy of jealousy and all. Heck when I do try hard and do good, people copy off my sheets and try to act like it wasn't obvious they peeked. School is weird.

I do think some grades define your intelligence. I mean if you have to do 1+1 and you don't get it correctly then you might need a little help to get there. And at the end of the day, it shows what you've learned and know about the topic. You can pass math but fail science. Your intelligence in math is high, yet your intelligence in science is low.
