Favorite subject(s) in grade/high school?

What were your favorite subjects in school back in grade/middle/junior high/high school? (e.g. pre-high school graduation)


I know the typical "sex ed" and "anatomy" answers are coming from the weisenheimers.

For me it was always math. I loved Algebra courses.

Science and English. I despised math with a passion because I just couldn't "get it". I was indifferent toward History. I actually made good grades in Science and English classes, though, and I enjoyed them. Especially Science.

Not really my favorite, but the only thing useful I learned in HS was how to type. It was taught by my football coach and he'd stand up in front with a microphone and a metronome and yell out "F R J U! F R J U! A Q semicolon P! A Q semicolon P!" We used manual typewriters and you really had to slam those keys to make it work. Good times.

Bio, English, Music, and Robotics. Yess, we had a robotics class at our high school! Woot!!! It involved playing with lego mindstorm stuff, mostly, but we did build cool stuff.

Construction, wood shop, and drafting. Had I known more about the economy then, I'd probably have studied cars instead of building trades. But it was great experience.

I took drafting in my senior year in high school....wish I would have taken that earlier and went further with it....that was a cool class.

No....nearly all high schools have trade classes like wood shop, auto mechanics, etc...

wood working, visual arts.

I liked history, but only the war sections, the rest of it wasn't as interesting.

Physics and calculus for me too.

Pleasantly surprised to see so many science/math responses - glad I'm not the only geek on here.

I liked all my H.S. classes up until the Sr. level Physics, Trig, and Advanced Algebra and Analytic Geometry. French was "meh". My very favorites were Freshman Physics, Geometry and Drafting (all 3.5 years of it).

Computer science. It was in the early 90s and I think one course was basic and the other C (I think).
The other one that came in a close second was Russian. My teacher was wonderful.
