Eh I think bullying isn’t that big of an issue with my experience at least. Most high school around me, I live in a rural area, don’t have big bullying problems, and even then you’re always going to have bullies or troubled people at home
The bigger problem is school is boring as fuck here, I wish we were able to choose what we wanted to do in our school career, most of the main subjects we work for 10-15 minutes and then have 30 minutes of down time or time in which nothing can be done for the class. I’ve been debating cyber school that way I can just get it done in 2-3 hours and do whatever I want for the rest of the day. Being in a place you don’t care for your entire life can take a toll on your mental health. School would be much more interesting if you can specialize in what you want to do.
There are technical schools, which let you get a head start on your career and learn it, or you can do college early which is a good idea if you have money. As for technical schools, they don’t offer advanced classes which is why I wouldn’t want to do them, honors classes and advanced placement classes are huge for college/university applications here.
Overall, sorry for the essay, but I think a lot of anxiety and depression is caused by long school days, a lot of places in Europe such as Germany only have school for 4-5 hours a day which would be much more manageable and enjoyable. We’re almost in school from dusk til dawn, it’s quite ridiculous
