    I liked General Business, Business Law, and Industrial Arts I-IV (I actually went back and taught IA for a couple of years). I cheated myself when it came to languages—I took advanced math classes instead of Spanish; that probably would have come in handy these days.

    I was best at math, but I really enjoyed the industrial arts classes where I used my hands.

    I didn't really like school.
    Although I did chose an engineering high school. (The best in the country).

    Since the subject matter was so wide ranging , it made it easy for me to later ace every USMC & Army school the military sent me to.
    Like USMC "Auto/truck Mechanic"School" and "Atomic, Biological and Chemical Warfare School" and "Army flight training",
    and even gave me enough engineering knowledge for my Wife and I to build our house,
    but I have to admit, I did hate laying all those thousands of bricks :)

    I always heard, "Education is wasted on the young".
    Probably true, but not always.

    None of it. But I will say that typing was the most useful skill I learned in HS. That, and Drivers Ed.

    Looking back on school from old age, it occurred to me that the subjects that I enjoyed did not really help me much in later life.

    The subjects that I hated, like grammar, creative writing, geography, etc were the things that actually made my life better.

    My biggest regret is not taking Latin.

    I always enjoyed shop classes. For “serious” subjects, English was my favorite.

    My freshman year of high school, I took drafting and absolutely loved it, so I signed up for Drafting II for my sophomore year.
    It was only myself and one other person so they canceled it. :mad:

    Study hall was a favorite of mine.
    I was fairly decent at math. Sucked at science.

    In High school Math and Science were majors

    In College (yeah it was a college in those days) math and science were minors. I majored in Industrial Arts in College.

    I never liked history much in school, but I have became a great fan of history as I get older. Something about 'doomed to repeat it'.

    I also didn't like Civics in high school. But I wish Civics and History were emphasized more these days. And not the REVISIONIST HISTORY that is being taught these days.
