Does high school get better after freshman year?

I started at an all boys high school this year, and so far I just really hate it, and I can't leave. I was really popular in middle school, had girlfriends, went to party's, knew all the drama, went out alot, and just enjoyed life. Well unfortunately middle school ended and everyone was separated. My whole family went to this school so they kind of forced me to go. I want to transfer but I can't, it would hurt my family to much, and I just don't know if I should wait, or just do what I think is right and try to love up my high school years. So this all boys school I go to accepted pretty much all freshman who applied, over 500 guys. The school only has 1500 so I wondered how they could fit so many freshman. Well now I know why, everyone leaves the school. Fifty freshman have left already. this school is just no fun, I miss my old life, I feel like I'm missing out on everything high school is. Will it get better, or should I just destroy my family's feelings because they worked so hard to be able to send me here and they will be heartbroken if I tell them the truth.

If it's not working for you leave it may be a family tradition but if you don't like it then it's not worth it but if your passing all your classes then it doesn't matter you go to school to learn as a first priority and hs shouldn't be bad if you don't like it I doubt it will get better

well, idk if this will help you b/c i too am a freshman this year, but from what i've seen so far, and heard from some upperclassmen (family and just other students) YES!!! it gets SOOOO much better. only with time and patience, you will meet more people with new classes every year. You'll have football games (or any sports), clubs, dances, events, etc (usually depending on one's school). but if that doesn't help, i always thought unless it was a college (no offence) or something bigger, you really didn't need to "follow" your family's footsteps.

high school is a fun experience. im a junior and i can tell you from my personal experiences that you should act on your feelings and go to a different school. family is important though so dont hurt their feelings but show them that you just dont want to follow tradition

I think you should try to have a talk with your family about it first . Explain to them that you are not happy there. If they don't understand , it basically comes down to your happiness or their feelings getting hurt

I remember the first day of my freshmen year it was my birthday & I came home & cried. It was awful. But after a while you get used to it. I got a junior boyfriend & it got better. Im friends with his friends. I'm now a sophomore & its alottt better. If you truly hate it that much, your family should understand. Just tell them how you feel & it will all be okay

Freshman year is always the hardest I would give it time and if it doesn't get any better just talk to your parent and say you know this just isn't working for me can I please go to a different school and who knows maybe they will let you and see you a lot happier :)
