When I learned that I was going to have to go to school, I was overjoyed to find out that it was called 'Candygarden'.

I imagined a wonderful place with candy growing everywhere and free for the taking.

That turned out to be my first lesson in real disappointment.

I went to a private school that went fron K-8th grade, When I was in Kindergarden, I used to think that the once you finished eighth grade you went on to college. I also thought that the 8th graders were all about 20 years old.

In Kindergarten the school nurse was doing hearing tests for our class one day. We were called down to her office one by one. The teacher tried her best to explain what the test was to us but of course I was the only one that took it way out of proportion. I understood that they were going to put headphones on us and we were going to hear these high pitched sounds. I thought the sounds were going to be really really loud. So loud that it would make me deaf. So when the teacher said it was my turn to go down there I just burst into tears and didn't want to go. I kicked and screamed so much I had to be carried down the nurses office and they sent another student down too so I could watch and see that it wasn't going to hurt or make you deaf.
Yeah I was that kid in your class that cried over everything.....

When i started going to school, i thought that you finish a grade in a day instead of a year, so in like 18 days(according to educational system of my country), you would be done with school forever. But, it turned out to be different...xD

When I was like four I thought that you only had to go to your grade for one day then move on,and if you didn't learn it all in one day that you were held back.Well when I went to kindergarden the first day and the teacher said"I'll see you all tomorrow" I thought that I was stupid and I cried that night until I found out that I had to go all year.=]

While in the seventh grade, our english teacher gave us a list of saying to write a paper about.I chose "Necessity is the Mother of invention".Imagine my surprise when I couldn't find her in the World Book Encylopedia!

I used to believe while I was growing up in Elementary school that "make up" exams were where we had to put on make up I was starting to fear that grade....

I used to think that we wore school uniforms so if we were ever lost in the streets people would know which school to return us to.

When I was going from Preschool to Kindergarten I thought hat it was pronounced Kid-in-a-Garden. I thought that it was a place where little kids grow plants and such. Either that, or children were buried and had to wait for plants to grow out of them. I soon found out the first day that this was not true.

At school we have this fountain and the water in it is brown (it was built as some sort of water recycling project years ago) and my teacher in year 7 told our class it was coca cola. The other day I go to my friend "if i gave you ten bucks would you drink the coke from the fountain?" And she goes "You know its not actually coke right?" And I'm like "yeah...." I can't believe it took me that long to realise, I'm in year 12!!!! I'm 17 years old and for the past five years I'v e beleived that there was coke in the fountain!.....

This kid jumps up and screams "YOUR WRONG THE EARTH SPINS SO FAST THAT WE CANT SEE IT MOVING!!!" he started to shake his head rabidly.... Then he cut my pants with a scissor... My oh my. Kids are freaky.

I used to believe that at an After School Detention the teachers would lock you into a closet and make you do your work.

I used to think everyone just kind of stayed inside and did house work until I got out of school. When I had doctor's appointments and saw people out and about, I assumed they had various emergencies to tend to.

At my school, the office lady would get on the intercom at the end of school and say "Prepare for dismissal now. Bus riders go first."

My ENTIRE year of kindergarten I thought she was saying "Prepare for this missile." and I remember thinking, "Oh no! What missile??" And BEGGING my mom to let me take the bus so I could escape first. I thought the school just favored the people who took the bus and let them get out first in case of a missile attack.

I used to believe that college was mandatory and was what you went to after high school. My mom and dad always said "After you finish college..." and stuff like that so I assumed you had to go. When I got to middle school and they asked us if we were college bound, I thought it was a test to see if you were going to be a future criminal and ditch school. Then when adults said they didn't go to college I thought that meant they were on a run from the law because skipping school was illegal (or something to that affect)

When I was in grammar school, the fourth and fifth grade had school band. I remember watching the flutes in kindergarten pick up in the middle of some songs. I thought that in band, u could take breaks and just join in when u wanted to in a song

When I was in elementary school and looking ahead to junior high, I was nervous because I knew there would be gym class and I thought the boys and girls showered together afterwards.
