A small, pleasant town in Northern NJ. Most of the high schoolers drink alcohol regularly and still maintain a pretty high GPA. The school gets great test scores and everyone goes to a nice college. The people are very shallow and apathetic. Although the girls think they are all that,most show up to school wearing sweatshirts and old UGGS, with washed out Hard Tails. Other definitions describe the people as good looking, but in reality very few are. The gossip is only about people who want to be gossiped about, and who do things over the weekend just so that on Monday people will be talking about them. Sports are really bad at the high school, except for boys lacrosse and swimming. Girls talk about other girls they hate, which is ironic because the reason they hate them is because they talk about people. Mountain Lakes has its own lingo like "legit", "obnoxious", "all out", "dominate", "beastly",and "def". Everyone knows everyone since they were born. Most people aren't actually that rich, only a few families are. The majority of families are upper middle class, which is still very nice. Mountain Lakes is really no different than any other town. You have your rich, your poor, the in between, the popular, the outcasts, the nerdy, and the Star Wars fans. The only difference is that for some reason everyone in Mountain Lakes thinks they are better than other people. Even people in the same town, which makes it very hard to find true and loyal friends.
"That girl really bugs me, all she does is talk about other people. I can't stand that. She is sooo shallow. Ooo, but I really like her designer tote, it's like 'def'awesome!
is very homogeneous. And creepy, unattractive people are considered all that.
a small, snobby, rich, white, preppy suburb of new york that no one has ever heard of. It is filled with big houses and beautiful, rich, bitchy white girls who enjoy shopping. The boys are beautiful as well. If you don't have the newest model of bmw/mercedes/lexus when you get your license, you are looked down on. These rich kids think they can get away with whatever they want so they smoke pot, a lot, even at school....they're pretty smart. They store morphine in their lockers, and have any drug imaginable ready at hand because their parents give them the money to buy it. Beiruit's the name, drinking's the game. On any given night you can find the teenagers, and parents, playing this classic game in their basements. Tournaments are frequent and last up to 12 hours. This small town as an exceptional sports program for having such limited choices of players. Lacrosse players are gods and everyone plays lacrosse, if you dont you are killed. Most live here all their lives, so one has the same friends from when they are two years old, until they die because most return when starting their own families. The high school is a small piece of shit that is made up of mountain lakers, boonton townshipers, and a bunch of deaf kids. yes, deaf kids. This results in most of the high school population knowing sign language. it's awesome. You could probably count the minority race population of the high school on one hand. In fact, there was an article in the new york times about the lack ...more...
a town in new jersey
"im from moutain lakes new jersey"
"really, you must be rich"
"no, my parents are"
mountain lakes is in new jersey not new york, dumb ass
mountain lakes, new jersey
ok...so i am a laker, ill admit that. im also going to admit that mountain lakes is one of the best towns ever. almost everyone here loves it. you walk through the town and people have orange and blue like its their job. people here have so much pride and love representing their town.
as for the boonton townshippers not liking it here, that is not true at all. im friends with many of them and they like it just as much as we do. ok of course theres an acception to this like there is everywhere, but everyone has acceptions.
as for all you people dissing mountain lakes, GET A LIFE. just because we live in a great town with great people, doesnt mean you have to diss it. so what if i have a couple northfaces and ribbons...northfaces are really warm and are awesome coats, ribbons are pretty and add fun to your hair, so HA.
as for the girls who wake up at 5 to do their makeup...thats about 3 girls in our school, and nobody likes them. those are the girls that wear too much bronzer and look like oompa-loompas. most of the girls i know, including me, wake up at 730 when school starts at 8 and dont even wear makeup most of the time. there are many naturally beautiful people who dont need makeup to look pretty.
like the other person said about our parents being rich, i totally agree, they went to college and worked hard for it and deserve everything they have. and the "shitty" houses in the village, really arent that shitty, they are a little smaller than the rest of the houses, ...
Mountain lakes is a great town. I lived there practically all my life and just recently moved. My new town is much bigger and predominately black and hispanic, but i had no issue adjusting or fitting in. Educationally, I was more than prepared, I was more advanced then many of the straight A students, and it's not like I walked into some shitty school system, I'm in the IB program!
And as for all of you that are attempting to whore this great place, I suggest you go to the schools for a little while, considering that I saw far too many spelling mistakes just glancing at a few of your pathetic entries. (FYI, it's posse, not possy). Maybe you should spend a little more time studying, and a little less wishing you were from ML and naturally smart because we were all raised that way.
ML kids are the greatest, and the majority have a lot of friends from outside schools and towns, so some of your friends (if you have any) like them.
not all of the boonton township people hate moutain lakes! how dare you speak for all of us, maybe thats how you feel, but i would choose moutain lakes over any other school, so dont try and speak for me "bob" so get over yourself
moutain lakers and boonton township kids love each other!
Mountain Lakes is basically just a lovely little town. We drink a lot. Play a lot of drinking games. Some morons blow yayo
or smoke the ganj
. But the majority of kids are just looking to enjoy being moderatly to extremely wealthy. Yes we drive around in our nice whips with tints and subs, but hey ...wouldnt you too? In mountain lakes its beirut, not beer pong. We take that very seriously, and If we don't get you on the lax field we'll get you on the ruit table. Enjoy life, drink some beers, rock a lacoste or two, and remember that these are the best days-- living off your parents money.
Yo lets go chill in the lakes tonight... I hear they really know how to throw down and have a good time
