Can I just ask... This sounds really stupid... But are your schools just like the ones in the movies? Do you wear your own clothes and leave class when the bell rings and have lockers and get a yellow bus to school?

Sorry for jumping in. My school is a Private School and yes we have lockers and there is 1 bus that I ride on. We also have uniforms.

Some of it's true.

Our school buses are yellow, though to me they sometimes look more like yellow-orange.

We have bells that ring at the beginning and end of class.

But, at least where I live, we have uniforms. We can wear solid color turtlenecks, Oxford style button up shirts, or polo(golf) shirts. We can also wear khaki, navy or black pants, capris, shorts and skirts(at least knee length for the girls). Outerwear has to be solid color or school approved(basically school or college sweatshirts), and we have to be wearing a belt, and we can wear any kind of shoe or sock but they have to match. And of course there's rules about hair and facial hair. So, we sort of have uniforms, but we have a little bit of options.

What are your uniforms like? Are they just shorts and a polo shirt or something?

We have to wear black skirts, a button up blouse, a tie (or cravat- the stupidest thing ever quite literally) and a blazer. It looks hideous lol. I always thought wearing home clothes was better. I think if we stuck to shorts/ trousers/ skirts and basic polo shirt it would be so much smarter.

See, that sounds like a good uniform! At least you get some freedom to choose your clothes... But what is the point of having to wear a belt? Lol. I'll have to post a picture of my hideous uniform since it sounds so terrible compared to yours.

When we think of American schools, we think of people wearing their own clothes and getting yellow busses to school. It's interesting that it often isn't like that!

See, I guess the uniform is supposed to help us get used to dressing like that for when we enter the work place or something like that. But I also think they're trying to prevent the students from having gang signs/colors as much as possible. That's why it's a rule that we can only have the really thin headbands, not the wider ones. (And, at least in my school, the belts, while adding to the business factor, helps keep the boys' pants up. It's this really stupid fad for the guys to 'sag" their pants and show off their basketball shorts. As if that's at all cool or attractive and something you're definitely not going to regret doing later off in like. Thankfully not everyone does it. As far as I know, none of the kids in the advanced classes do.)

Well, it does feel kind of free just hearing about yours.

I find it funny, just in general, how sometimes we just get these ideas handed to us over and over about a person/place/thing(maybe I should have just gone with "noun") and then when we see it for ourselves we find there are similarities as well as differences in what we were told. It's actually quite interesting.

Trust me, it's not stupid at all, I have these kinds of questions for my friend in Scotland all the time. At my school we wear our own clothes, but no tiny shorts or shirts that aren't at least three fingers wide at the strap, and we have a bell that just sounds like a really loud BOOP noise three times when class starts and ends. We have nice big lockers and instead of yellow buses we use city buses to go to school. Our passing periods are 5 minutes long so we have that long to get back and forth to class which is good considering our campus is pretty big.

The elementary school kids in my area can dress like Chacha(or whatever you're called at this point ), and we've got the same time limit for passing periods.

Our campus has two stories and several "portables" or outdoor portable classrooms, so it's pretty big too. We have 2000+ students maybe, give or take a hundred or two.

Yup, my school is pretty much like this! We take a yellow school bus, bells that ring when we need to be in class, and no uniforms. (Really, it's not as lovely as it may sound)

But just like Chacha (Startunnel) said, the clothing has restrictions. At our school, no pajamas (which is a rule broken daily anyway), no shorts or skirts or anything above your fingertips and no spaghetti straps. We also have 5 minutes in between classes (:

It's actually quite interesting.
That's the excuse my school uses too- but most people don't work in shirts and ties so I think it's silly. Oh that sucks, so you can't wear thick hair bands or hair bows or anything like that? Oh, I know what you mean about the boys with their trousers hanging down, that happens here and it is just gross. I mean get some self respect people, no one wants to see your underwear. It even happens with our school uniform. Actually, even with girls, they roll their skirts up so short that they look more like belts.

The girls at my school went through this phase of dying their hair bright red, and I'm just like, seriously? My 'friend' (she's mean to me) died her hair black and I think that is kind of gross too. She looks a bit like Ursula now (no offense to her.)

I know- it is interesting. I have never really met and gotten to know an American so I just assume they are like the people in the movies. I spoke to a few Southern Americans in WDW and loved their accents. I have wanted to move to America, thinking it is better than here, but I think is is also more dangerous. By a lot.

What irritates me is that the evil people in movies are often British! I mean what's so evil about us?!?!?! And apparently our teeth are bad- that's the stereotype. A lot of people here do stereotype Americans as being overweight but I know that isn't true. I was depressed at WDW because loads of Americans were really tanned and I was so pale. Our weather is horrid here... Rain rain rain.

You mean your Scottish friend asks you or you ask her? My dad is Scottish and so we go up there a lot but it is pretty similar school-wise to England. Scotland is very patriotic though.

So does that mean that if you had a dress that was perfectly decent but thin on the shoulder straps you couldn't wear it? I have loads of thin-strapped dresses.

We don't have passing periods and our lessons are 100 minutes long so it gets tiresome learning about the same subject for so long. Do you get to choose classes? When we get to age 15 (year 10) we can choose 'options'. We got three because my school is stupid. I chose history, French and art. We also have to do English, maths, science, ict and workskills, and religious studies and PE. I think it's unfair having to learn about religion with no choice and I would no way do PE if there was a choice.

I guess no uniform would get boring after a while. So Startunnel is 'Chacha'? (I'm guessing it's a nickname?) nice to meet you Chacha lol. It's nice putting names to usernames.

What do you mean anything above your fingertips? Oh no, no skirts?! That's unfair! So you have to wear trousers basically! Omg who would wear pajamas to school?! Everyone at mine is obsessed with 'onesies'- and I think they're just hideous. Do you know what I'm talking about lol?

I think I know what you're talking about with the onesie haha!! But with the skirt thing, like you can wear skirts, but when you put your arms at your side, the skirt can't be shorter than the ends of your fingertips, if that makes sense.

A lot of people here do stereotype Americans as being overweight but I know that isn't true. I was depressed at WDW because loads of Americans were really tanned and I was so pale. Our weather is horrid here... Rain rain rain.



You mean your Scottish friend asks you or you ask her? My dad is Scottish and so we go up there a lot but it is pretty similar school-wise to England. Scotland is very patriotic though.

So does that mean that if you had a dress that was perfectly decent but thin on the shoulder straps you couldn't wear it? I have loads of thin-strapped dresses.

We don't have passing periods and our lessons are 100 minutes long so it gets tiresome learning about the same subject for so long. Do you get to choose classes? When we get to age 15 (year 10) we can choose 'options'. We got three because my school is stupid. I chose history, French and art. We also have to do English, maths, science, ict and workskills, and religious studies and PE. I think it's unfair having to learn about religion with no choice and I would no way do PE if there was a choice.

We get, like, thin headbands with or without bows/flowers, and bow/flower hair clips. It is gross. Girls don't do that, but some girls like to unbutton their polos or partially unbutton their shirts and wear tank tops underneath.

Bright red looks good on Ariel and other movie characters, but not typically real people. I use monthly dyes, my mom doesn't let me use the permanent dyes and I kinda like it that way. It's healthier for hair.

It is kinda cool. And it can be kinda dangerous. You may have heard about the recent tragedies. But I think, for the most part, my neighborhood is okay. You wouldn't catch me out alone at night, but I guess I feel relatively safe.

A lot of evil people in movies are British. I guess if it's set in Britain, then it makes sense, like Bond or the recent Sherlock Holmes movies. I don't know why. Maybe your accent?(it is very cool) There are overweght Americans, but it's more dependant on how the parents let their children eat than what the country does. And if it makes you feel better, I don't tan well, I'm always pale. Or sunburned. This holiday for me was grayer than usual. But, on the other hand, I had my first white christmas, so I guess you gotta lose to get sometimes.

On the dress? Yeah. (At least, that's how it is for the elementary kids, and they sound like they have a similar dress code to these guys)

In my school, the first, second, and fourth classes, or periods, are around 90 minutes long, and third is (I think)180 minutes because we have four lunch times instead of everyone eating at the same time, and each time period is 30 minutes long. There's also the few minutes the give everyone to get there and back. We have what's called "electives" and they aren't limited, but they have to fit your schedule, and there's a certain amount of different types of classes you have to take. I would not do PE either, but we have to have some sort of sport or physical activity by the time we graduate. And religion isn't even offered at school I don't think.

It even happens with our school uniform. Actually, even with girls, they roll their skirts up so short that they look more like belts.

The girls at my school went through this phase of dying their hair bright red, and I'm just like, seriously? My 'friend' (she's mean to me) died her hair black and I think that is kind of gross too. She looks a bit like Ursula now (no offense to her.)

I know- it is interesting. I have never really met and gotten to know an American so I just assume they are like the people in the movies. I spoke to a few Southern Americans in WDW and loved their accents. I have wanted to move to America, thinking it is better than here, but I think is is also more dangerous. By a lot.

It's definitely dangerous in this country depending on where you live. Lots of gun violence. My friend from Scotland used to hit me up with questions a lot. At my school we are allowed to pick what we call Electives, which are our version of your "Options." Since high school goes from ages 15ish to 18, (four years) we need to take 4 years of English, 3 of Science, 3 of Social Studies, and 3 of Math. I usually take a study period so I can get homework done, and I take engineering courses and Spanish class. We are required to take PE, but let's face it, it doesn't do much, considering the fact that in accordance with the stereotype, many Americans are overweight. But, then again, there are some overweight people who are as healthy as a horse. And you would have to wear some kind of shrug over the dress to cover the fact that the dress has thin straps. I've gotten away with thin strapped dresses though, it sort of depends on how appropriate it is overall.

Our campus has two stories and several "portables" or outdoor portable classrooms, so it's pretty big too. We have 2000+ students maybe, give or take a hundred or two.
You can just call me Jey. I got tired of Chacha.
