Forest Lake Senior High School is a microcosm of the city of Forest Lake
. Sadly, most of its graduates can't even pronounce microcosm, let alone know what it means. The school can be described briefly with three words - racist, drugs, and idiocracy.
The school is a Frankenstein's monster of a building - the school was expanded instead of torn down like it right well should have been. Classroom numbering is random and sporatic, and many students get lost looking for classes even through their senior year.
The school is known for it's FFA (Future Farmers of America) program. Unless you're a member of one of the several big, important families in the area (the ones that own major farms, or recreational vehicle dealerships), you don't give a flying fuck about it. More than likely you're high off your ass in class while some poor schmuck attempts to teach you basic grammar thanks to NCLB.
The school is also well known within theater, debate and speech circuits. Again, not many people care. In fact, the school doesn't even care. Instead of displaying recent victories of the above organizations, they'd rather keep a trophy case full of football and hockey trophies from the 80s, when the Forest Lake Rangers actually won games. To anyone with a brain, that should describe the mentality and demographic of the school more than I ever could.
Principal beginning graduation speech: "Start your tractors! Start your tractors!"
Student: "I fucking hate this school."
Student 1: "You have any drugs?"
Student 2: "You kidding? Everything at Forest Lake Senior High School is drugs! The chairs are drugs, the carpet is drugs, the desks are drugs..."
A dumpy school in Forest Lake MN where almost everyone gets high (DO NOT go into the bathroom if your not interested in drugs) and acts like they are some hardcore country kid. Most of the people aren't very interesting to talk to and the people who are get ignored by everyone else. The so-called "popular" kids are normally just obnoxious stoners or rich. Everyone is a christian and goes to church every sunday and says bible quotes on their facebook page to make sure everyone knows they praise Jesus even though they are rude to everyone in school. Most of the guys are quite odd looking too (imagine the most stereotypical stoner and you have most of them).The parking lot is a joke too with way too much traffic. The reason the parking lot gets so crowded is because there are way too many buses leaving and that every guy drives a truck. The walls in the classrooms are ready to fall over any second but more than half of the classrooms have expensive projectors and smartboards with cheap desks showing that the school doesn't know how to spend money. Basically if your not into redneck stuff you won't survive long.
