Not putting in effort I guess. I knew everything and could have been a straight A student but I refused to do any work outside of school which meant no projects reports or homework was ever done unless I was given enough time to do them in class.

My biggest regret was...well, kind of all of it. If I had the chance to go back and do all four years again, I definitely would. But I can't, because it was destroyed by a tornado half a day before I graduated. >=/

Either not putting in enough effort (I was only ranked 3 or 4 in my class, should have been valedictorian, but I was extremely lazy) or not making friends. Honestly, my antisocialness was probably a lot more harmful to me than my class rank.

Not checking to see if the slides were working properly during the speech part of my Senior Project. I was so embarrassed to learn that I didn't notice when the slides didn't change, because I didn't click the mouse properly. On the plus side, at least I wasn't one of the people who had to constantly look at the screen to remember what to talk about. My grade took a heavy blow for that, though. Fortunately, I passed, but I'm still ashamed.

My biggest regret about high school is not putting more effort in, I'm doing great and going to university just fine but I still feel I would've accomplished more.

I was tormented in school. I was smart enough and had enough credits so I skipped a couple of grades to end it early. I didn't even go to my graduation. It was basically hell. I had people beating me, stealing from me, even getting beaten by groups of 6 to 8 people at a time. Most people have no idea about "bullying." Being teased is nothing. I had days where I literally feared for my life.

In retrospect, I should have been more evil. I could have defended myself. I could have even been vengeful. They wouldn't have done anything to me then. Now I would be tried as an adult.

I would quite literally rather die than do it again.

I would probably volunteer more. It's great for your resume and opens up a lot of opportunities for you later in life to have contacts and experiences to reference; once you hit university (or college) your time is so strained that it's hard to find time to volunteer.

Alot of minor things such as my grades. The biggest thing I would take back is getting into a fight in another persons class room. I always wanted to apologize but could never get that person alone again.

Having four years of my life wasted, knowing that I'm stuck in a system where students are just a bar code or a number in a database and a percentage to be given a grade. Where the academically inclined and talented were tasked with upholding the school's test performance to counter-balance the faltering test scores of the majority residential students in order to secure more funding. This school operated on incompetency and it was a vacuum of “falsified hope” and mediocre aspirations. I did a lot of research into the public school system, how their teacher unions were in bed with the local politics and campaign contributions, extorting money from teachers as "union fees". The"bullying" tactics against other schools that were charter and private to capture more students and garner funding. The allocations of state granted school funding to promote a shitty learning environment in the school itself, for instance, they rented a DJ to play rap-crap music every Friday.

I ended up getting transferred to a different $h*ttier school district after addressing these issues to the administration, and put on a black list of troublemakers, and commanded to cease or they'd deny me graduation and diploma with threat of expulsion, they also "put in a good word" for me, essentially tarnishing my chances at the universities I had applied to, I didn't bother going back there to beg for my diploma (spent that final graduation week camping, did not regret it), but I graduated, surpassing the credit requirements in surplus.

Spending four years in high school.

That was one of them, the other was being too shy, socially inept, and oblivious to court girls who showed an interest in me as they beat around the bush to elicit some sort of epiphany for me to realize their feelings.

Same here on the girls thing! I just wish I didn't pay my ex the attention she didn't deserve for so long. Sucks about the whole school thing though. My bud got cheated outta her diploma cause of missing some thing seniors did one day.
