so now my mom's all like "OMG I DON'T HAVE TO DRIVE YOU ANYMORE THIS'LL BE GREAT"
ya, really. wonderful.
So bassically now I have to switch school's, and I'm soo mad about it, I even cried in front of my mom but she's like "don't worry you'll make new friends". I don't care wether I make new friends or not, I'll never see the ones I jsut made...it'll be annyoing, like all the friends I made in grade 2, I contact them every so often but it's a bother but I don't want to lose them so ya...it'll be like that. sept I'll have waaay more friends that I never see
I DON'T WANT TO SWITCH SCHOOLS
Have you ever had to swith schools?
Jan 26 2006, 11:54 PM
Yeah I had to switch from private to public last year. It was HORRID. Now I home school and I'm a lot happier.
Jan 26 2006, 11:54 PM

Moved to School
Jan 27 2006, 12:06 AM
Wow, you cried for that?
I've never been to the same school for over 2 years, we move a lot. But I make friends pretty quickly. Next year, college will be the place I'll stay the longest in one spot, yah!
It doesn't matter where you go, or how social you are, you'll always meet someone and make new friends. It may seem hard at first, but it just happens.
Jan 27 2006, 12:06 AM
I have switched schools before, but it is only between the school year, not in the middle of the school year.
Jan 27 2006, 12:23 AM
a normal person should have went to 3 schools in total excluding college. i have been to...7 counting the one i'm at now.
i started kindergarten at one place (1), then we moved and i went to en elementary school for 1st grade-4th grade (2). then there was overcrowding and i had to move to another school just for 5th grade (3).
then i went to middle school and since i was in a basically all white school (4) and some kids are cruel, people enjoyed to harass me daily. then the next year, my family luckily moved to new york city.
i finished middle school (5) then i went to high school (6). things seemed to go well until the middle of freshman year when a popular guy liked me and all the girls who liked him started to hate me. then the whole school kind of hated me so i was shunned. it was really stupid because i already had a boyfriend yet no one cared because this two faced girl who i thought was my friend started to tell people that i liked the popular guy anyway, despite the fact that i have a boyfriend.
then i became a truant because i was being a little rebel. then my school tried to kick me out, but once the school official who wanted to kick me out found out that i wasn't an idiot and i passed the important regents and my grades were great, he wanted me to stay. but i grew to hate that school so i didn't want my good grades to up their credibility of being a good school and i already wanted out so i went to the school i am currently enrolled in (7).
but anyway, i'm not the type who has to be around people so i don't really care if i make friends or not. it might be due to my past experiences but whatever. if you like me and want to be my friend, great. if you don't, i can really care less.
my situation seems much worse than yours and i know people who have had much, much worse than me. so be lucky that you're only switching schools once and people don't bully you.
Jan 27 2006, 01:10 AM
I switch schools b4. But not in the middle of the year.
Yes, it did suck. I tried everything so i wouldnt switch schools. I even cried and made up excuses. lol. I went 2 a different school 4 7th-8th. Becuz i didnt have transportation 4 my old school.
But now, i dont reget anything. I dont keep in touch with my friends, but i dont care, they changed a lot seen the last time i seen them. And some of them have also moved 2 a different school.
Now that i see it, im happy that i changed schools. I have met many new friends that love me. So ya.
Jan 27 2006, 02:58 AM
yeah. way too many times.
China-->Toronto--->China--->Vancouver elementary--->Vancouver higschool
and next year i'm transferring AGAIN.
Jan 27 2006, 10:39 AM
Mostly I only switched schools when I was still starting school, i.e. first grade, mostly my mom wanted to see which school best suited me, and her concerns. shortly after we found the best school which I liked although I was only there for 2years it was still worth it becuase i made many friends, when I was in fourth grade, i again had to switch schools and go from NY to FL, it was horrid, I didnt like the transition. but after that I was happy again, becuase i met new people which became friends, now my parents after 7 years are coontemplating on if we should move which would send me to a new school based on what job my mom gets for the company that she works for now
Jan 27 2006, 12:18 PM
I'm transferring colleges. I really don't care though.
Jan 27 2006, 05:20 PM
I went to four different elementary school. I've had okay experiences. It's not always awesome to switch schools, but it's not like it's terrible either. New people, new places.
Jan 27 2006, 06:38 PM
yup. once, when i was in kindg. this year i'm in junior high, and next year high school!
Jan 27 2006, 07:38 PM
Hmm, I went to three different elementary schools. One for kindergarten and first grade, then another school for the rest of first grade, then a third school for second to fifth grade.
Jan 27 2006, 07:57 PM
I'm changing schools in the beginning of February. It's going to be a whole new experience for me. I'm coming from a public into a private/charter. Things are much more strict there, but it'll be okay. I made the decision to change schools, the thing is, I can't learn in the environment I am in now, I have too many friends and nobodies there to stop me from talking so much, all the talking is restricting me from learning what I need to learn. My school hours change from 8AM-3PM, but now it's 8AM-5PM. It's longer school hours and I get loads of homework.
There are uniforms and I'm not really used to that. I have to dress in khakis and white collar shirts. Though I'm not sure I can buy different types of white collar shirts, like ones with designs, so far I only have regular/plain ones.
On Friday's I can go back to my previous, public school and do my homework there so there isn't much of a "missing-my-friends" problem for me.
Jan 28 2006, 05:11 PM
I went to the same school from 1st grade to graduation. I liked it for the most part but it was kind of annoying because I went to a small county school and everybody knows your business. Now I'm in my first year of college (junior college still in the same town). I'm going to be leaving here in about a year for God knows where. That scares me because I have a really good group of friends and I'm really going to miss them a lot. We're all about to be going to different schools. So, yeah, switching schools stinks, but look on the bright side maybe there will be some really good new opportunities waiting in a new place.
Jan 28 2006, 07:47 PM
i never switched schools except for grammar school to high school
i'm sorry you have to switch schools but you'll make new friends and you can still keep your old ones
Jan 28 2006, 11:28 PM
Yea I switched quite a few schools throughout my life... probably still going to, in the future.
The most painful time was that I had to leave all my closest friends, and at first, in the new school (which is the school I'm studying at right now), I knew nobody and felt isolated. I was pretty depressed for about more than half a year. Now, when I think about it, it really wasn't such a big deal and I definitely could have dealt with it much better.
Jan 29 2006, 09:20 AM
Well yeah. I moved junior year across the country, a bit worse then across the street my dear.
You can make new friends and keep the old. Put yourself out there and smile.
Jan 29 2006, 05:59 PM
yeah. i used to go to a catholic school with tran. but.. then i had to go to a public school hellllllllaa up north. which pissed me off.. but i did anyways. and im mad cause the school i go to is retarted.
Jan 29 2006, 09:21 PM
Yeah, when I was in elem. school, I was never in one school for a full year, k-5. I started homeschooling a few weeks into 5th & I'm in 8th now. I'm going back to public school next year for high school..
Yeah, I always hated switching schools. I'd make a bunch of friends, then we'd move. I make new friends, we'd move again. More friends + an awesome teacher..wait, no, time to move again! Agh.
Feb 5 2006, 09:13 PM
i wish i got to switch schools. my friends and the school itself are great..but getting to start over, make new friends and have a whole new impression of what others think of you would be great.
Feb 5 2006, 09:15 PM
Actually, I've never switched schools, besides the moving up between elementary, middle and high, which really doesn't count since I stayed with the same kids. However, I used to almost wish I had changed, because being with the same people forever is really irritating. It did turn out or the best that I didn't change, but the point is that changing schools isn't always bad or anything.
Mar 29 2006, 07:54 AM
I've switched schools twice.
I went to a private school for two years then in 2nd grade I went to a public school and loved it.
Then I moved and started 5th grade in a new school. Looking back I would say that 5th grade was my worst year there. I made friends, but I was involved in those little clique groups even in 5th grade. One day the girls in the group wrote me a note saying they were kicking me out of their group and I really didn't have any other friends.
But now I'm older, more independant and I can handle myself better.
Switching schools is hard at first but you do make good friends with time.
Mar 29 2006, 05:40 PM
well i guess homeschooling didnt work for you looking at how you type.
Apr 2 2006, 02:10 PM
Aww that sucks
I haven't had to, but I want to.
i've never switched schools. But my parents want me too cause hte highschool i got into isnt in the "best" location.
I don't want to switch cause i feel like imma have to start over and try to be someone im not for others to accept me. I like it where i am cause i can be myself. But who knows what it's like in other schools.
Apr 13 2006, 08:05 PM
nope..but i may have to for college..
Apr 14 2006, 08:19 AM
Nope. I've been in the same school system my whole life.
Apr 14 2006, 09:05 AM
aww.. i moved school 3 times in 5 months.
nasty and really awful. had so much trouble trying to fit in
and.. just couldn't settle and i was in sophomore year.
really messed up my education for a while.
Apr 17 2006, 01:09 AM
This year, my boyfriend had to switch schools. The impact...=(
Apr 18 2006, 02:51 PM
No, I'm so glad that we moved to this district.

next time was going from elementry school to jr high no biggy
i lived out of the distrct all of 7th grade and my sis didnt want to say at the same school so we changed to live in our distrect that sucked cause by then i went from outgoing to very shy and that year anti social

Apr 26 2006, 10:48 PM
i went to three different elementary / primary schools in three seperate cities. (new york, new york. london, england. toledo, ohio). Then secondary school / high school in london for three years (years seven, eight, and nine), my tenth year in toledo, eleventh year at an academy in london and the first term of twelfth year in an american based school in london, and now back in toledo for my last term of twelfth year and then on to university.
i am at the same high school now that i was in for my tenth year, but it's still crazy. some people i remember, most i don't. but spending summers in toledo i knew some other kids too...
i agree. changing schools is difficult... really, no matter how many times you do it.
