    Well, hello. I'm new to this community and I have to say that the members here are extremely helpful.
    I'll might as well share my experience.

    I'm a high school student and people are bullying me for having good grades and being one of the top 15 students in my school year level. I don't know why they would hate me for that.

    I study so that I'll actually use the concepts when I get older, something for a revolutionary change, you know?

    If I didn't study, it would totally be the end of my life, because that's what I think

    They cast rumors about me about cheating during exams...although I study hard for them. People in my class started to believe it and I became so scared.

    I never really cared about popularity.

    I only cared about how well I was doing at school.

    There would be times I would push myself to make them believe that I'm innocent- but I would totally backfire.

    It's pressuring me so much that my depression became at its highest peak, again.

    What can I do?

    Normally I arrive and hustle directly into my classroom and receive genuine smiles filled with admiration from my classmates.

    What only hurts me the most that those classmates of mine, were spreading rumors about me being dishonest.

    What did I ever do to deserve their taunting?

    I didn't go to school for three consecutive days, because they would only hurt me more...

    Well, you know, only you need to know the truth about what is going on.
    Where are you from? I sense you're not from the States.

    I'm from the Philippines, actually.

    People from my youth and margin tend to act quite mighty and independent.

    I actually want to talk back to the ones taunting me, although I don't have the courage to do so.

    Hello @Jamaliah I am from the Philippines too! I was bullied in high school and it was hell. Having no allies but myself, I ignored them for years until I graduated with honors, got a scholarship to a college of my choice, and started over with new friends.
    Honestly, I am not good at giving advice, but all I can say is to be your own sword and shield. You are the strongest fighter alive.

    I was such a chicken when I was young that I once had a report card changed to reflect poorer grades than I was actually getting - to fit in with the peer group I was hanging out with. My counselor in the 6th grade (?) I think it was suggested it when I had no real explanation for why I had such bad grades. Little did I know that those grades are getting you somewhere and the kids who are teasing you? Well they're not going anywhere. One day you'll be their boss and you'll have the last laugh.
