3. There are more goals that I should stay focus on.
4. There are more goals for me to stay focus on.
5. If possible, I just want be an elementary school student again. Thus, I can enjoy the most colorful time in my life again.

Consider omitting "to do".

2. I have more stress from doing schoolwork, preparing for the exams and facing the problem of what school to enter after junior high school.
Use "go to" or "apply for" instead of "enter".

3. There are more goals that I should stay focused on.
That's now grammatical, but the meaning is not all that clear.

4. There are more goals for me to stay focused on.
See my previous comment.

5. [STRIKE]If possible, I just want[/STRIKE] I wish I could be an elementary school student again. [STRIKE]Thus, I can enjoy[/STRIKE] That was the most [STRIKE]colorful[/STRIKE] interesting time in my life. [STRIKE]again.[/STRIKE]
