I went to an average private girls school, and probably learnt that I would have probably been no worse off at a public school. They had very little variety to choose from in year 11 and 12 subjects unless you wanted to be a Dr, and therefore the ones I chose were downgraded in the system and even though I got A's and B's I got graded so low for Uni scores that I couldn't do anything I wanted to. I ended up working full time for a year after school and then doing a TAFE/Uni course in a field I was interested in.
I also think I may have been better off quitting after year 10 (with basic secondary education) and doing an apprenticeship or traineeship in a field I love, I think I would have benefitted more from this.
I think it's hard to learn stuff when you aren't interested in the subjects, ended up being like a chore with no one to help.

I absolutely learnt stuff in highschool, I didn't get good grades from learning nothing. But then I got bored (wasn't learning what I wanted to learn and was no longer being mentally challenged) and dropped out but I went to pursue higher learning at an earlier age than my peers.
Have a retained the bulk of what I learnt in highschool? Absolutely not.

I went to high school from '92 to '97.
Yep, I did learn a lot in high school, though I never really achieved what I was capable of academically! This was largely due to the fact that I am very easily distracted, but partially due to a few lousy teachers who really didn't give a shiz.
I was stuck with the same maths teacher for 4 out of 6 years I was at high school and I can almost say I learned nothing from him. He would refuse to repeat himself if a student said they didn't understand something, he would just accuse the student of not listening properly!
I had to get private maths tutoring weekly so I could keep up.

I learnt stuff. Though I went to high school in the 2000s mostly (started late 90s).

What I learned from high school, was not to care what people thought of me in high school.

Once I started uni I finally found people who were the same as I was. The bullying finally came to an end and I was taken serious for once.

I didn't learn much. I've got ADHD so I didn't fit into the system and they didn't have the time/evergy/patience to mould the system around me. I really hope my children don't have the same problem.
