Go to a school better suited to your abilities.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

magnet school...?

Your parents seem a bit strict, if my parents had been as strict I would've gotten the chair. Just try and catch up, focus on it knowing that if you pass the courses you'll get your stuff back.

The funny thing is, by saying you were going to say it buy decided against it, you said it anyways.

Well, for one, you're Asian, so you should be able to do this.

Stereotypes aside, just tell your parents you can't do it and move to an easier school or take easier classes. If they don't, then you have two options: continue to fail or get your grades up.

Edit: dammit, beaten to the Asian joke.

I'm still leaving it up. D:

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

Some people just have different learning curves. I may have set the record of the most math classes taken during jr high / high school (8). The accelerated ones were too difficult, and the regular classes were too easy. I kept getting bumped up and then next semester back down. The trick with high school is to keep up with ALL the daily work. Grind it out, it may be a tough 4 yrs but I guarantee it gets easier.

I used to be the guy who never understood anything until a friend explained it to me, or after I already copied the homework. Did poorly on exams. All that changed my Sophomore yr of College. It became so easy, I became the one explaining and letting friends copy off me, and I graduated with a good GPA.

What I find helps is for you to teach someone else what you are learning. It forces you to use critical thinking and to think for yourself. It works.

BTW, no more stupid Asian jokes.
