Labeled The Smart Kid In Class Made School Life Difficult

    Jade is 13 years old now and in 8th grade. Somewhere back in 4th or 5th grade, when school work started getting a bit harder, and homework started up, was when she was labeled the smart kid in her class. To her, she just was able to finish faster and do really well, and, honestly, she really didn't like it. Being labeled the smart kid in class made school life difficult.
    First, when you're labeled the smart kid you're expected to do things in class that no one else wants to do. For example, when the teacher says okay class, who can solve this problem, and nobody wants to do it, you can pretty much bet that your name is going to get called. And it's not even really the teachers who call on her in class, it's the other kids calling out and saying hey, Jade can do it, make Jade do it!
    But Jade didn't want to solve the problem in class just as much as the other kids didn't, but nobody seemed to understand that. Other students had envy for her because she was so smart. She would certainly graduate with honors. Just because she might have had a high IQ, that didn't mean she wanted to be treated any differently by her classmates, friends, teachers, or parents.
    Second, cheating. Jade is no angel, or a goody-goody, or anything like that, but she does find it really annoying when she's trying to finish her school work in class and other students are whispering to her to give them the answers, or begging her to let them cheat off her when the questions are hard. Cheaters are just so annoying.
    Third, expectations. The expectation on you when you are labeled the smart kid, or a genius, or whatever, is that you're basically expected to learn and know EVERYTHING! For example, last week she was working with a friend where you do stations, moving from one to the next and completing a project at each. It's not a race, but the other students treat it like one. And so there were two boys who got ahead of them in the stations, and one of them says Oh wow, I thought she was supposed to be smarter than that.
    And fourth, born a baby genius. Everybody thinks, even her friends and best friends, that just because she's smart she doesn't work hard to do well or to learn. The other students treat her like everything is easy and that she can just hang around all the time and just get good grades or get on the honor roll just by being who she is. They think she doesn't try hard, which she does, and that she doesn't feel the enormous pressure she and maybe even her parents, and teachers, put on her.
    So, when you label someone the smart kid, just remember that they're trying their hardest too, and most likely, other than the fact that they scored a little better on their test, they are just exactly like you!

    I'm gifted, and ive been labeled the "smart kid" literally forever. School hasn't been hard. Ever. Ive never needed to study for tests or drill information into my head. That seems great, but this year (9th grade) things have been getting hard, and it's really difficult because I'm a procrastinator, but that's never been a problem until now. And if I don't understand something, its like I dont know HOW to study, because I've never had to. And all the kids always want to cheat off me on tests, homework, everything. And if I dont do well my friends and classmates will be like "oh I thought you were gifted" and all this shit and now I'm DROWNING in expectations.

    I can relate to this, except I was called The quiet kid (which I guess a lot of people experience too).
    There was this one time , my first couple of month at school. So far everything was going fine,until the drama queens in class starting doing their drama stuff. That time it was math(I hate math seriously who doesnt ?!),the teacher was looking for a student to solve this equation. Since I was known as the quite kid and known to stutter, the drama queens were all like "Why don't you let that person do it?"
    The teacher agreed,and since then I was cursed because I was called a couple of time on that same month. So whenever there was a quiz, the other student would be like "I bet she's gonna get called again" "Sucks to be her" "Oh~He's gonna call you're name~"
    and I'm just there like "Don't JINX IT!!!!"
    Eventually the teacher got fed up with calling my name, so I did'nt get called for most of the year.
    BTW the math teacher used to always do these quiz where everybody has to stand up while he pikc a person to solve he's equations, if he's feeling excited he would make EVERYBODY do the quiz.

    I can releat this and my grandparents are always like to my mom "send you're daughter to us she is good in studies we will help her in studies" it feels good to be called smart but sometimes i can be dumb too. My mom and dad see my grades there always A1 or A+ or like excellent but sometimes my parents doesn't care about it at all cause they know i bring straight A's but they don't know it's hard... they always go after my sister like oh wow you got this or that and i will feel like i did the same but didn't got the congratulation, i do watch videos,kpop etc. If i sit alot more on computer my mom will be like to others "oh my daughter just sit on computer" which does make me stress and angry about it but i still love my mom alot and even my dad thry are the best😙 if i do i do studies all the time... i do need break? It's not easy to be smart or loser in good sence not to be intelligent or not good in studies. Just remember it's not like if someone get alot of A's there intelligent they do work hard for it 😁
    B.t.w if there are some mistaken words i'm sorry i did read the hole comment and fix it 😁 have a good day or night

    I feel like my bff relates to this. Shes a new student in our school, though for some weeks, she was known as the smart student. She takes projects so serious she wanted to finish it already. She may be bossy sometimes because she is stressed and she wanted a higher grade. I guess along time ago i used to call her as the teachers pet since every teacher in my classroom trusts her. I also noticed that same as the video, classmates just tease her. Whenever theres a group project shes the only one who was making because the others arent even helping because shes "smart" and can do anything by herself. Whenever theres an exam, shes mostly always the first one to finish the exam, whenever shes the first one, some classmates just say "she passed because shes smart." "Whatever, shes smart so she can do anything" and that may offend her a little becuase shes really sensitive and mostly doesnt take jokes as jokes. Nobody felt or knew that she worked really hard and she was really pressured of each project, homework, and exams.
    Edit: sry for late long comment tho uH-
