School is a crazy time for a lot of kids because not only are they learning how to make friends, how to deal with bullies, and all the other social dynamics that come with growing up and becoming more independent, they have to do it during puberty. And on top of everything else: Homework.
Unless you were super popular growing up (and even sometimes then), school wasn’t always a walk in the park. In fact, it really sucked for a lot of people. Which is probably why there were over 40K upvotes to Redditor u/damitabbas‘ question: “What was the most f—ked up thing you saw in school?” For many people, the most messed up thing they saw involved poop or some sort of dumb injury. Also, hawks.

The white dove they released for “peace day” got immediately snatched mid flight by a red tailed hawk. This was in elementary school.—u/birdladymelia
A kid in my biology class accidentally stabbed his face with scissors. Then another kid chased him out of the room with a microscope slide to catch a few drops of blood. So he took his blood covered slide and the teacher resignedly let us see the red blood cells still moving around. The stabbed kid was fine. A few stitches and he was good to go.—u/CupcakesGalore822

My middle school teacher did a thing were we could bring our pets to school.

The best prank played on a teacher I know of was when my younger brother found a giant test tube in the cupboards up the back of the chemistry lab. He farted in it, sealed it with his hand then walked up to the teacher and asked what experiment had been done in it because it had “a funny smell” Teacher naturally took an inquisitive sniff….—u/Apumptyermaw
Nothing that I personally saw at my high school was disturbingly f—ked up. Just weird. Some kid smuggled in a bunch of onions and clogged all the downstairs toilets with them. Who the hell does that?—u/SFxTAGG
