RIchard Corey Posted over 3 years ago In High School, why do I learn so many irrelevant subjects? I agree that high school subjects can be incredibly boring. For me, there was a disconnect from the subjects that I assume you are feeling as well. If something feels pointless or irrellevant then it becomes boring because there is no motivation or curiosity spurring us on. High school, I am guessing, is a very difficult time for a lot of students because the majority of what you are learning is considered foundational. I might be parroting a bit here, but the different classes allow you to learn other more advanced or specialized subjects, not to mention function well within society. We don't understand our own ignorance until after the fact, something I'm reminded of daily and most likely for the rest of my life. Good luck finding your niche.
