    in the next years OR over the next years?

    Don't complain about your homework. This is nothing if you think about what you are going through in the next years at school.

    OR

    Don't complain about your homework. This is nothing if you think about what you are going through over the next years at school.

    I have added more details. I hope it makes sense now :)

    Re: in the next years OR over the next years?

    I don't know what you mean. At first look, it seems like the second half should be "what you are going to go through ...". Also, "the next few years" is more natural.

    Can you explain what your sentence is supposed to mean (using different words) and then we might have a better idea how to help you.

    Re: in the next years OR over the next years?

    The future tense is appropriate, as I suspected.

    Don't complain about the amount of homework you get now. It's nothing compared to what you're going to get in the next few years at high school!
