Last year, I started freshman year of high school at a school which I had high doubts about, due to what I heard about it. My dad wanted to send me there just because he hates the public school in our area, and it's right across the street ("I might invite people over", he said). I was VERY depressed last summer (I even cut myself and cried a lot) due to other issues. And finding out I was going to this stupid school made it even worse. I didn't speak up though.
So I started the high school, and throughout the year all I could think about is going to the public school. Everyone at this new school is "fake' (they all pretend they're friends with everyone, but really they talk behind they're back) and most of the girls act like sl*ts and most of the boys there just want sex (and remember it's a small school so it's a majority of them)... not only that but the education system is horrible. Most of the things I learned are repeated stuff, and they try to make it "easy" for us just so we can move on. They don't have the classes I really want to take. Plus, the tuition costs alot, since they need money.
I really really REALLY want to go to the public school. I swear I would do my best there. I still haven't spoken up about it though. My dad thinks I love this school, since I DID join clubs and sports (cheerleading & softball) (to try to "change my mind"). I'm going back next year, and now I'm depressed again. I 've been crying all summer. I also stopped hanging with friends, sleep a lot, and started to eat more. I just feel like I'm missing out, and know what's best with me. My dad is making me study over the summer, and I start to think about the schools and get sad all over again. How to overcome this?
Oh and by the way, the public school has 20xs more people, better education (the classes I want to take), higher creds for college, and so much more.
