Graduation day is closely approaching and while everything may be yay! and woohoo! I clearly don't care for the whole high school experience and as much I just want to leave already. What would happen were I not to attend? Could I just pick up the diploma form school the day after?

Wouldn't it be awkward when they call you and no one comes up and everyone stares around blankly?

I don't I'm just asking haha
Well I didn't go to anything when I left school or college. I'm not one for these circle-jerk events when everyone pats each other on the back and swaps phone numbers they'll never call. It wasn't a big deal. I don't know what happened with me not being there - I suspect my tutors knew I wouldn't bother. It doesn't matter though.
#11
Of course im going to college im just not very fond of the school experience itself :P
#13
Just go. You put 12 years into school so I'm sure a few hours can't be that painful. But if you really don't want to, yeah, you can pick it up later. They aren't gonna deny you your diploma just because you didn't go to the ceremony.

Why not ask a teacher or a counselor at your school, who actually knows the correct answer, instead of relying on an internet forum?

Just a suggestion. *shrugs*

Go to your graduation. You will regret it later if you don't.


Really? I didn't go to any dance, major or not (prom) or events of the sort, and I feel no remorse. Maybe I'm just weird like that?

A bunch of my friends and I missed our graduation ceremony cos it was the same day we traveled to our first Download Festival.

Totally worth it.

I don't need a piece of paper and a 'congratulations' from teachers I didn't like to show me I got out of that piece of crap school.

I don't regret it one bit. My year mainly consisted of self-pleasing douchebags. The only people I cared about were traveling to Donington with me. So no regrets at all.

Exactly, what is the point of it? You made it, you're done with it and you don't need any congrats from people who you probably never liked to begin with.
#22
do yall have to go back to school after graduation?

i do...am. we had the ceremony last thursday and have to go until monday. its to "deter bad behavior at the ceremony". apparently in 1982, the students threw some stuff (golf balls, beach balls, paper balls, ball balls) at the speaker, who happened to be Miss Oklahoma (the state i am in), and we are still paying for it. oh well, hearing my name as i walked across the stage was suprisingly exhilerating.

Exactly. Although, I have to say, us lot would probably have been at our ceremony, had we not been on a bus to England at the time.

If you have something better to do, don't bother.

But if you think you'll have an alright time with your friends and stuff, then go.

Either way, it's not the huge deal it's made out to be. 'You've finished High School.' Big whoop.
#26
I think you should go. Assuming that you live with your parents and that you have a good relationship with them, you should go to make them proud.

I'll tell you what the "almighty" principal told my school:

"You go to graduation for your parents, not for yourself. They worked hard to get you this far."

I suppose they have a point.

But just think of all the painful long days you spent waiting for the bell to finally ring.

Think of the exams you took which made you stay up all night studying!

Think of the moments when the guy whose locker was beside yours got expelled from
school for weed possession.

Think of the teachers that tried hard to (de)motivate you.

Think about the times you had to speak in front of class and had to face the fear of public
speaking.

Graduation day gets you the chance to say _|_ "**** Yeah! I'm going home!" _|_

But that's just my opinion.
#28
I never studied for exams and yet somehow managed to get a B or C at the lowest of course there were occasional bad grades, never used a locker in my whole life, no teacher ever tried to de-motivate me...so....I dont know O.o

What are they going to do, send you to detention? I would never go to graduation. Eff that!

I don't see a point to it either, it's just like prom and all other events the average High Schooler loves to go to and waste time. I personally never saw a point in them.

I went for my family. I watched everyone cry and hug and then stood with them in a packed hallway while we waited to be led into the gym. When we were seated I sat next to some girl I had never met and some guy that always joked with me about "billy beer." Then for the next two hours I sat and sweated my ass off while speeches that were less than stellar were made (minus one), a band that was composed of guys that could barely play farting their way through some Oasis covers and finally, the calling of names. At that point I made my way up on stage, shook hands with someone that was probably as thrilled to be there as I was and then, after giving ups to Biggie, sat back down for everything to come to a close.

After the ceremony was over I found my family, gave them my stuff (hat, gown, fake diploma) and then told them I'd see them at home. I was one of the first people out of the parking lot.

Looking back on it now, I realize that I did the right thing by going for my family, but I still see it as a hot, sweaty, sonically offensive and irritating affair.

yes you can just get it from the school. but does your family want to see you at graduation? if they really want to, do it for them. seriously.
#37
Sure, I'm not going to it. No point really, I'm gonna pick up my diploma later and it's not like it's a social event either.
