Im not doing well in school but it doesn't bother me. And THAT bothers me. How can I get myself to care? And then how do I do better?

The fact that you care about not caring speaks volumes. You really do care but maybe something has happened that has you twisted around. Now that you're on winter break maybe you can plan for what you are going to do differently for next semester. Is the work too hard? Too boring? Speak to your family, guidance counselor & teachers about how you've been feeling & how what changes can be made about school. Because you know there's a problem I know you can turn it around. Good Luck to you!

It really depends on what grade your in. What kind of career are you looking for. Im graduating high school in grade 12 and going onto college and the more credits/classes you get in high school the better

Look at what people who did good in school and college have. And then look at what drop outs are doing for a living and where they live. And what kind of a ride they drive. And then ask yourself which life do you want your kids to live in. That might put a little boost in your get up and go.
Good Luck

Doing well in school does not depend on what grade you're in! Doing well in school should be done All the time ! Getting a job and or going to school after graduation depends on your Entire school Career!~ Always strive to do your best! Mom and Dad are RIGHT!

I was the same way till 10th grade. So in 11th I did my homework and got on the honor roll and that made me feel really good. So I didn't that in 12th grade too. But because I slacked off all the other years I ended up not having enough credits to graduate with my class. Just think about not being able to walk with your class at graduation and that should give you motivation.

I did terribly in high school, kept my grades just high enough to play sports. But once I got into college, I was a 4.0 student. I personally think just because you struggle to do well in high school or struggle to even care, does mean you're setting yourself up for a life of failure. I'm not advocating giving up on high school grades, just trying to say that your success in HS will not define you for the rest of your life.
