What should I do about school?





My problem is that I know I'm smart, but I don't get to show it. I know stuff that they would never teach in school. Like, I know like 18 digits of pi, and I know a lot about medicine. I'm like a walking medical encyclopedia, everyone asks me for medical advice. I know that I can write really well, but writing essays isn't my thing, I'd rather write about whatever I feel like writing. In social studies, I know a lot about politics, but I don't get to talk about that. Anyone who got into talking politics with me would get an ear full. I know a whole bunch of stuff that I don't get to use. I'm in the 10th grade and ever since I got to High School, I haven't been doing well. Right now, I'm not doing well in Chemistry. When I was in 8th grade, I got the chance to do a project about whatever topic I wanted to, and while everyone else did something simple like what osteoporosis is, I did a project on the effects of caffeine on the human brain (which is bio-chemistry) I knew stuff that my science teacher, who had just finished medical school didn't know.

    I was pretty much the same myself. When I was in Grade 9 , the guidance counsellor sat me down & told me I’d be the smartest person working the night shift at some processing plant if I didn’t get my *** in gear! In my case I was just too stressed to focus – a lot of problems at home and I was a shy geeky kid. But I was smart enough to realize that my brain was my ticket to my own LIFE and a college education could open lots of doors. What worked for me was to focus on that picture of the adult me – with my own place, career and car, making my own decisions. That was the carrot that forced me to focus on Chemistry and Calculus but it worked!Good Luck girl. You can do it!

    Well, you could try to just take classes where you already know everything so you can show everyone else how smart you are. But then at the end of the year you wouldn’t be any smarter.ORYou could tell yourself that if you are already as smart as you are, then all the new things you can learn this year will make you even smarter. And obviously, you are smart enough to learn those new things. It can be scary to feel like you might not know as much as you wish, but look at this as a challenge and an opportunity to expand your mind further.

    well looking back i realize that high school pretty much doesn’t matter. if you really are smart, it will show on your ACT and balance out average grades. what you need to do is worry about college. you cant get by with that **** there. so i would suggest not getting too stress about high school work pressure and just have fun. college is where you really have to stay on top of everything.
