Because personally I don't. Maybe it's because I have ADHD and 2 LDs:rolleyes:...but then again maybe it's not.:D

I really hated school up until year 11 then I started to like it because I was getting more support for my ADHD.

I absolutely loved my art class but I didn't really like my other lessons that much. I mostly like school because I see all my friends there and it gives me something to do in the daytime. :D

I was undiagnosed in the old days, before ADD became well-known. I had a love/hate relationship with school. It all depended on the teacher and the subject from k-8. I did well in some subjects and not in others. School was also an escape from home and I could get books from the library.

High school was different. Except for 2 classes, I loved high school! Especially my junior and senior years. I came out my shell a lot then and remember the teachers that made such a difference in my life. It was here that I got positives in my life, from many people, includind classmates and teachers.

Not really; I'm not interested in the subjects I'm learning, which makes it harder, ADD or not.

That's probably why I'll like college better, because I'll be able to pick my own subjects, and I'll be more likely to pay attention :p

I kinda like school, but it depends on the class a lot of the time. I hate maths and most sciences, but I love English, history, and Language classes, as well as psychology which I am taking this year. K-8 were easy for me - I've always been above average, but when I got to high school and and started to take harder courses in advanced levels, my above-averageness turned into averageness compared to the other students taking the same courses, something I didn't take well to. Freshman and Sophomore year went alright and I did well for the most part...Junior year went okay until the second semester. I had been having bipolar episodes all year and attention problems, but half-way through my second semester, I was hospitalised and never caught up so I have bad memories of my junior year. >.> However, I'm hoping my Senior year will be better. :) I don't have to take math, I'm taking a semi-easy science, and, aside from that, the only class that I really don't want to take (it's required) is government so I think I'll have a better year as long as the two APs don't kill me. ;)

Hey I hate math and science too! I usually forget steps in math and science is just too detailed for my memory.

That's funny, K-6 was easy for me, I was an A's and B's student. 7th grade I started a college prep school, and I started going downhill. Last year I totally bombed, but being a college prep school, it was tough. This year I'm going to a public school for the first time in four years, and I think I'll do better because there isn't as much pressure as in CP school.

I hated school, I hated the kids and I hated most of the teachers....school was SH*T especially when I was the one being picked on:eek:

I reckon even if I was supposedly "normal" I still would've hated school as it so boring!!!

I'm not partically fond of attending school. It really sucks, because even though I have ADHD and a LD to it, its really not that good of a school. I would rather go to a art school where every subject revolves around art, and theirs drama classes and creative writing classes and it would just be amazing, but lifes not like that, so I guess sorta, it depends on the mood I'm in though.

I cannot stand my math class ! it is the worst i have ever been in (geometry) the teacher is new and she does not understand that we all do not get it(she is a nice person but she just ugh ! ) i have in class soppourt but still it is SO frusterating to me I can not sit still in that class.She exspects us to learn things in three days and the she complanes that we should not be taking so long to finish a quiz ugh ! Sorry but she just drives me insane ! lol

Not to get too on my soapbox, or run afoul of any professional educators here, but in many ways I still see school as structured according to the classical educational paradigm where the students sit down, shut up, and get knowledge poured into their heads by the teachers. That's an exaggeration of course -- contemporary schools are more sensitive to learning styles and certainly allow more participation than 60 or 70 years ago. But there's still so much farther to go.

It's no different from the adult working world, designed entirely by "normals", with the assumption that we're the deviants and therefore the ones who need to be made to conform. As a result so much creativity and natural learning ability is lost because of the format.

Oh yeah, and I actually *liked* school, sorta. Well, I liked learning the material -- I could have done without the classes. ;-)
