When I was at primary school the "big" kids had studied the french revolution, and they had made a cardboard model of a guillotine. They were going to show it to the school, class by class. It was my class's turn on a Friday, and I had been told by one of the "big" kids that they were going to chop off our heads. I didn't want to seem like a coward and so I didn't tell my brother or my parents. I went to school in the morning after saying goodby to my Mum and Dad, and I thought "this is it". Well, the time came and of course there was no execution. Unfortunately i peed myself in the line to go into the class because of my nerves.
I was scared to death of the fire drill in 1st grade. I thought a giant drill with a flaming bit was coming for us.
In kindergarten, our teacher informed us that later in the week would be make-up picture day. (for making up class pictures if you were out the day earlier in the year) I took this to mean that students could dress up in clown makeup, wear a funny wig, and have their picture taken. I was excited, and told the teacher I had to take a 'make-up' picture. How disapointed was I when I couldn't paint my face and wear a big red nose.
when i was in third grade, i brought home some difficult math homework and asked my (math-challenged) mom for help with it. after struggling with the "bonus" question at the end she got confused and started writing down letters, x and y. i got mad and protested that letters werent allowed in math. she told me it was algebra, which i figured was a speicial secret grownup code that gave them a short cut to difficult math problems. when i took algebra in high school, i was even more mystified by it.
I use to believe that everyone in Florida didn't go to school because it was warm all year around.
I used to think that since there was a junior high school, there was, somwhere, a junior college. I thought this was pretty logical.
When I was young, my family was in the military. We were going to Germany. I thought that I would go over and have to go to a German school and speak German and forget how to speak English and I cried and cried, I was so afraid I would not be able to speak to anyone when we came home and I did not want to go. I was relieved to find they had American Schools and spoke English!!!
I used to believe there was secret chamber in our history classroom called kamerlik, and there was monster living there, who whispered "My preciousss" whole the time.
I realized it was only my imagination as they removed rectangular board which always seemed to be entrance to the kamerlik to me, and I understood there was nothing but regular wall behind it.
When I was doing my A Levels at college (about 17 years old) I spent one afternoon a week helping out at the local infants school (5-7 years). One day I noticed a couple of them giggling at me. When I asked what was so funny one girl admitted that they all thought I was really stupid, because I was forced to come back to small school at my age!
When I was in junior school I thought high school is so scary and I wish I could die before I get to high school. Well, here I am, surfing the internet in the computer room in my high school.
My junior school had 4 classes in a year group. When I first went to that school, I thought I would get a chance to be in every 4 class then go to the next year. When I was in 1st grade I actually told my teacher she got the list wrong when I found out I was going to be in 2nd grade the following fall. "Miss, shouldn't I be in the other 1st grade class?"
in my first year at school, secondary (england)aged about 11, all kids had to have a medical and in the medical the nurse would feel your testicals and ask you to cough, when speaking to the older kids they told me that the nurse would feel your testicals but if you gained an erection the nurse would hit it with a big wooden spoon, and the needle was hugh that she would use to give you your t.b injection. guess who was first on the list

When i was little I used to think that fire drills were when random firemen came to your school and took jack hammers and drilled into the ground.
My elementary school had 8 grades with 4 classes each. So when I was 1st grader (1st class accidentally) I used to believe that students have to study every class in every grade. And that was 32 years of elementary school. Imagine my tragedy!
in seventh grade, my sister convinced this boy in her class that grover cleveland, the only president to serve two nonconsecutive terms, had a twin brother named clover who also became president. armed with this information, he eagerly raised his hand in class when the teacher mentioned cleveland and said "those are the cleveland twins, right?"
when i was in kindergarden, i had this elaborate fantasy that little, cartoon-style mice in little mouse clothes lived inside my school desk. i could hear them hammering or playing music if i put my ear to the desk. the sounds were actually caused by the echoes of any noise that someone scraping or banging on the desk made, and some of my brighter classmates used this to mess with me.
I believe my mom had to pay like a million dollars for me to go to school
At the beginning of Kindergarten, my teacher told us that each week a student would become star of the week. That night I looked up at the sky trying to figure out which one was actually a kid.
