I only have experience up to my senior year of high school at this point, but I'd have to say that my least favorite year was 3rd grade and my favorite was 4th grade. It's all in the teacher.

EDIT: Eh, actually, 9th grade was the best, thinking about it more. Middle school felt like jail.

best: 9th i finally got out of my retched grade school and moved on to one of the best high schools ever. Possibly the only school where you can jokingly tell people (even teachers) to go to hell. And no one threatens to have you suspended.

Worst: 6th

Best was probably last year, 10th grade because that's the year they let us transfer over from the middle school to the high school but I figure my best year to come will be my senior year (or atleast I hope).

Worst (this seems to be a pattern) was 6th grade. Truth be told, 9th grade was a bad year grade wise and 11th grade has been insane with my advanced classes but 6th grade was harder than both years because of the insane amount of busy work we were assigned.

I hated eighth grade because I had so much work in English with my stupid project we had to work on for 50 hours.  But my best year was of course Kindergarten.  No explanation needed.

Best:  Freshman year at college.  The entire experience was pretty euphoric in terms of an overwhelming culture shock of "hey, I'm on my own now".  Sophomore year of high school was pretty awesome too; far enough in to not be a n00b, not far enough to have all the responsibilities of AP exams and SAT preparation.

Worst:  6th grade.  Incredible amounts of homework, most of which wouldn't even be collected.  This year's also quite stressful - junior year of college - in that I'm not doing particularly well in anything.

Best: 9-12, because I FINALLY got the nice, empathetic teachers and protective school enviornment that I had coming to me for years.

Worst: 6-8, because even though the teachers were nice and empathetic, I was the school punching bag (got picked on more than any other student I knew)

Best: When I was in 3rd, 5th, and some parts of 7th grade. Kick ass teachers, work wasn't that hard, it was just <3333.

Worst: 4th, 6th, first half of 8th, and 10th grade. In 4th grade, my teacher was an 80 year old bitch and the work was next to impossible. 6th grade and first half of 8th grade...teachers were cool, but it was just so much drama and BS peer wise. 10th grade...living hell. Gets my vote for the worst schedule I've ever had for classes. (Though being in an overcrowded school doesn't help much either).

Best year: Right now, college is fraking awesome.

Worst year:  I've always liked school, and I've never really had bad grades, so I don't really have a least favorite.  The only class I ever failed was in my Senior year, but that was my favorite year of high school.

I'm only in 8th grade, but the worst year so far would have to be 2nd grade. There was only 7 kids in the class (it was a private school) and I had no less than 5 different teachers. I have no idea what the issue was, but teachers kept coming and going. Werid. My class wasn't that bad, just full of boring, average students  :(

My best year would have to be 6th grade. I'm in a public school now, and everyone seems pretty cool, even the teachers, at my school and that's when I finally made lots of friends.

Haha, just regular, private school, my class wasn't crazy at all. I swear one quit to work at K-mart. I found that insulting towards my class.

Thanks for the welcome =D

Best: 10th Grade. The biggest and best turning point in my life.

Worst: 7th Grade. Horrible teachers and merciless peers.

Cripes.  The best years were either Grades 5, 7 (although it didn't start out all that well), and 9.  Grade 5 was great because I had a great teacher (once she returned from materity leave, which meant she didn't show up until November) and good friends.  Grade 7 was similar, although I wasn't a fan of my Math teacher (he sounded a lot like Brad Garrett and was really kinda tough).  Grade 9 was great, aside from the month of March, which was god-awful annoying and I'm not getting into specifics here.

As for the bad years, Grades 3, possibly 8, 11, and almost all of college apply here.

Grade 3 was bad because I really couldn't focus all that well in class and always seemed to be the only one who couldn't finish their work in class (and thus, had homework.)

Grade 11 was miserable because I just couldn't finish papers on time, I was generally frustrated with no way to express myself, lonely, broke, and just plain depressed.  College has really been like Grade 11, over and over again in this regard.  Thankfully, I'm done at Seton Hall in May.

Best: 9th-12th grades. The school I went to was perfect for a guy like me.

Worst: 7th and 8th grades. I almost lost my sanity.

worst is 9th grade, this year. mainly because of all my peers, who are generally assholes. also, 90-minute gym classes then acting then personal finance then latin in a row (these classes are all on different sides of the school :l ) for a fat kid isnt very easy or fun.

best was probably kindergarden. mainly because i met one of my best friends that year, there wasnt anything called homework, and the teachers were all cool. :D

Well, know that I am graduating from high school exactly a week from today (June 6), I finally can decide my favorie and least favorite grade.

Favorite:
Fifth -- I had a great time and was active in more stuff than I was in any other grade in elementary school.
Sixth -- Going to middle school was exciting for me. This is the only grade I enjoyed in middle school.
Twelfth -- I enjoyed this year a lot and got to know a lot of people and it was nice to look back at all what I did in middle school.

Least Favorite:
Seventh -- Ugh, this grade made me hate middle school. It was nothing but work and annoying classes.
Ninth -- My freshmen year is pretty forgetful...I mainly took easy courses and I didn't know much people yet.
Tenth -- Unlike many people in this topic, I hated my sophomore year the most out of all my other years. I despised most of the courses I took (Honors Government, Health, Geometry, Honors English 10, Spanish II). I was also kicked off my baseball team for missing a lot of class time. A rather messy year for me.
