When I was extremely young, I used to think that if you got on the "A" or "B" honor roll, it meant you'd written an essay where every single word began with an "A" and that was how you got on the honor roll. Same thing with "B" honor rolls.

Before i started school, i thought that "English Class" was a class where you learned how to speak english. I always thought that i would not have to take english class since i already spoke english. I thought that until I started school.

My dad used to think there was a spanking machine at school. You had to sit in a chair with 2 hand shaped paddles that continued at light speed until the red light turned on indicating you were sore. lol

Right when I started school, I believed that you could get kicked out of school for chewing gum.

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!

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.....

I used to believe that if I hid under my desk with one hand covering my face and the other covering the back of my neck I would be safe from nuclear attack at school.

When I was in elementary school our family knew another family by the last name of Reese. When at school they talked of going out to the playground for "recess", I thought the Reese kids would be there. I kept looking for them at recess, but since the Reeses went to a private school, I was always mystified why I never saw them.

I used to think in kindergarten and first grade that if you got 'kicked out of school' for failing, misbehaving, or whatever, that the principal would come and take you to the door of the school and literally kick you out.

When my first grade teacher assigned us a report (of some kind; I don't remember what a first grader was supposed to write a report on) to be placed in a manila folder, I insisted to my mother that I had to have a "vanilla folder" to put my report in. She had to call the teacher to clear up the misunderstanding. (She didn't know what a manila folder was, either.)

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!.....

On my first day in kindergarten, I was sent to take the attendance folder to the office. Well, I knew where to take it but didn't hear that name of it. As I was walking down the hallway I saw the sign 'office' and thought it meant to stay off the ice... it wasn't until my third grade year that I realized the school didn't have an ice rink at the end of the office hallway!

When I was a little girl, my mum and dad told me that if I was naughty, I would go to the "naughty girls school" and would point it out when we drove past it. I always thought, gosh that's small, they must just cram them in like sardines. It wasn't until I was 18 and going past it on the bus that I realised it was a Gas Sub Station (those little green huts).

when I was in grade school I missed school one day and had to stay home. My older sister told me later that day that it was too bad I didn't show up for school because Superman had showed up and landed on the roof.

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!

When I was in Junior High our fire alarms had what appeared to be a small hole just below where you would pull the lever down. The story that was spread around was that an ink dye would shoot out when the alarm was pulled, staining the clothes of the person who pulled the alarm. According to the story, if there had been a real fire the school would purchase you new clothes, however if it was a prank you would be caught instantly. I was never real sure about the story but I also wasn't willing to try it either. Good thing since I DIDN'T know at the time that a false fire alarm was a felony.
