What do I do? - July 22nd 2013, 04:16 AM

Hey people! My name is Missy, and I need some advice. Ok, so I best be telling you what is currently happening before I get off topic... Haha...
Ok.
Vanguard. Sounds like a prison, yes? Its actually a charter school. Apparently the best school in Colorado. I went there from kindergarten to 3rd grade. Cool, right? Wrong. Oh, so very wrong. I'd have to say it was the worst four years of my (So far, horrible) life. So I hated it there, hated the teachers, and HATED school. Got bad grades, and was a trouble maker.
Fast forward, switched schools. (Que Hallelujah Chorus here)
Forth grade was AWESOME! Fitch grade was AWESOMER! And then 6th grade happened. There were ups and downs, but over all good. Made new awesome friends, got a couple crushes, and took Spanish. By this point I was a straight A student, and actually got to like school. It was awesome! Until...
My parents decided that I needed to go back to Vanguard. What the heck, mom! What the heck!?! Why, you might ask? I have no idea.
Anyways, since the news broke out that I have to go back to prison, I have nearly lost 3 of my best friends. To make it worse, my Mom is forcing me to participate in a sport. If you don't know, I hate sports. All of them. Hate each and every one of 'em.
I have let them know multiple times that I'm not very excited about my return. They have said these responses in the past week:
You'll love it once you start!
Don't worry! It'll be good for you!
Have a good outlook and you'll do better.
I want to ruin your life and make you miserable. Deal with it.
Ok, ok. Maybe the last one isn't so true, but that's what I'm hearing.... Anyways, this is where you strangers come in. What the heck do I do? I only have two weeks of summer left, and I can't seem to change my parents mind... Help!?!? I want to spend five years in happiness!

I would not risk your grades at this point and focus on doing well in school. Why was it a prison? Was it the teaching style? The other kids?

One issue may be the cost. You did not say if it was public or private school. If it is a private school, then your parents may not be able to afford it anymore and the charter school may be free or lower cost.

Maybe it has to do with how it would look on college applications.

You didn't exactly answer why Vanguard felt like a prison. Does it have to do with the teachers, students, or a combination?
