This happens due to these students being different and not following the flow of mainstream style or enjoyment of thier lives.
After the fault of the preps these students then are made fun of and branded as losers for life for just having fun and doing things their own individual way and although not accepted can be very accepting themselves.
Even being seen with these "Courtyard Kids" can be a hazard to your reputation.
Go back to the courtyard, kid, hahahahhahahh.
Oh, you hacky sack? It's footbag bitch.
It is ones luck to be a courtyard kid.
