How bad is seventh grade?

::Well... Seventh grade was QUITE a shock to me. In elementary school, and the sixth grade, all the teachers hold your hand and baby you. But, in the seventh grade, they try to get you ready for high school. So, seventh grade is the hardest year in middle school. All the high schools look at your seventh grade grades and standardized test results to see what kind of classes you should take. Also the DRAMA doesn't help. Everyone changes in the seventh grade and your old friends might not be friends with you again. But, if you stay organized, work hard, and stay away from the wrong crowd, seventh grade won't be as painful. And you still have the eighth grade. It's not as hard. You get used to the work load. Just get ready for the seventh, it's a real SHOCK. Good luck =)

::Seventh was the worst year of my life I got emotional problems and it really messed me up. I think it was just me most people say that its the best year

:: I am in seventh grade right now, & I honestly think the only reason why people get jacked up that year is because everyone else turns into dumb a**es. Multiple girls cut themselves, one guy gave another a hand job during class, a girl carried around condoms, my best friend had sex then became suicidal. I think the only good thing about this year so far is that I got an incredibly awesome boyfriend. My grades have lowered from A's to C's, & they keep trying to prepare you for high school & college. But, it depends on the people in your school. My school is pretty messed up, as you could tell, but I'm still happy. It really depends on what all happens. No one can promise if it will be good or bad, because they don't know how your year will be. BUT,, GOOD LUCK, & welcome to the wild. :PP
