Also known as college-preparatory or secondary school

1. A place that prepares you for the real world (ie. if you make it through this place you can make it through anything. See anything.)

2. A place where everyone resents everyone else because because they secretly want to be part of the group they can't be in (the more adult version of "you can't play in my sandbox"..."your sandbox sucks anyway" kid conversation)

3. A prelude to the real best years of your life. See college

4. A place where you find out your place in society:

Preps: Abercrombie kids who hang out at each other's beach bungalow's during the weekends...usually snotty and spoiled...well liked by many faculty

Unholy Holies: Also very well liked by the faculty, except more annoying than the preps because unlike the preps they tend to actually have morals: they head student government, liturgy committee, participate in all types of community service and always get chosen as retreat leaders. They irk people with phrases like "Jesus loves you no matter what" and saying hey buddy to you in the hallway because they feel sorry for you while showing off their yellow Livestrong bracelets.

Potheads: Relaxed, laid back happy idiots. Cool to talk to in the morning when you yourself are brain dead too.

Teachers: This is a whole other spectrum of cliques within itself: you either have the administration brownosers, political zealots, monotone drones, spaced out dingbats, or the ones that teach you life lessons without you realizing it

Counselors: Secret spies for the administration who will try to rat you out to them and make your life even worse than it was before you went to them by "just trying to help". At best, they will just listen to your problems, nod, pat you on the knee and say "our time is up...let me know how it goes"; making a total waste of your time


Gangstas: Listen to hip hop and rap...always seem to have beef with some other member of their clan. Could be at the top of the social chain if they weren't always busy fighting with each other (ie. G is talkin shit bout me...im gon fix that bitch up)

Wiggers: Same as above, except they tend to be wannabes, of the caucasian race, and their only real beef is forgetting who borrowed who's homework

Jocks: Generally jerks or airheads. Laugh at gross out humor. Not all are bullies. Only talk to lower social cliques when they need to borrow a pencil they'll never return.

Nerds: Usually into weird card games and doing well. Formerly faculty favorites until they got replaced by the Unholy Holies. Wear slicked back hair, high pants and glasses.

Over-achievers: sometimes cross with the preps and unholy holies, somewhat smart like the nerds, but have a better ability of blending in...but these tend to be too busy to be involved with anything besides school (or get involved in so many things they break down). These are the ones who take SAT courses in their freshmen year and complain about too much pressure from parents.

Kids in black: Under these are the goths, people who dress in black, the socialists and pretty much anyone who's sick and tired of everyone else usually because they're tired of themselves. Some are genuine rebels; some are just anti-everything assholes

Punks: they skateboard, have their own bands, are basically pretty chill and have their own bands...not too involved in political activism anymore...most of this has been taken over by the emo kids and the kids in black

emo kids: the ones who always quote taking back sunday on their blogs and wear old converses...usually the hipster kids who tend to be vegetarian and of the uber-liberal elite (and the ones who use the word uber); the name emo is very misleading, as their expressions tend to be often serious and boring.
Kid: "I hate junior high"
Mom: "Don't worry, it'll get better in high school..."

A place rumored (by adults) to be
A. the best 4 years of their lives
B. good for you
However, in all actuality it is a system of prisons cleaverly decorated with pee-yellow walls, faulty lights, air-conditioners that never seem to be turned on at the right time of the year, and heaters with a blazing high temperature of 55 degrees. There are many elements of high school, but seeing as many have already explained the social aspects, i will dwell annoyingly on the educational aspects.

~school overview~
educational officials, or teachers, "teach", or rather make you memorize facts, figures, rules, and many other things that they claim "will be very useful to you in the future" however, 95% of this information is utterly useless, and completely forgotten the second you walk out of the classroom. teachers usually emphasise becoming an individual, independent, free-thinking, creative member of society by forcing you to conform to their standards.

~Math Department~

teachers teach you about numbers, tables, charts, and other mathmatical things. in the early education years, the information seems relevant enough (multiplication, money, charts etc.) but, proceeding through the school years, the information becomes ludicris and exceedingly diffucult to understand, much less pronounce.

~Social Department~

established to teach about the world around us. the teacher repeats the phrase " we learn about history so we can learn from our mistakes" constantly and overbearingly, while overlooking the fact that no one country really learns from their mistakes, as their is , and will most likely be, outbreaks of war, senseless violence, genocide, and other crimes untill the end of time. this is, however, a decently usefull class (some of the time)

~science department~

the most pointless information that anyone will ever force you to "learn", unless you plan on becoming a scientist, or a science teacher. basic lectures are understandibly important (knowing the difference between a chipmunk and a volcano), but, like the math department, the info. becomes remarkibly useless. Contrary to popular belief, knowing how to classify a rock isn't going to do much for you, unless you plan on becoming a geoligist. Also, knowing that an ice age may happen someday again will not stop the afformentioned ice age from happening. When science teachers aren't dumbing you down with difficult, ultra-specific facts, they are telling you obvious information that you already knew long before they ever told you( the top of the mountain is usually the highest elevation).

~health department~

usually jam-packed with diagrams and gross facts that you will never remember. said diagrams are often pointless, because i don't know too many girls that plan on suddenly sprouting a penis and labeling it.

~foreign launguage department~

usually useless, because the teachers barly know how to speak the language they are supposidly teaching, and it is unlikely that many people will travel to ancient greece and be forced to remember their grammar endings. however, vocabulary words may help you remember other english words.

~english department~

teachers let you speak your inner creativity by forcing you to complete outlined, drawn-out, graded compositions. the formula usually goes something like this :
hard work + creativity = a bad grade
generic words + comformity + writing what they want to hear = a passing grade. and however much the teacher stresses that they want original ideas, they never really do. follow the exact guidelines and revert questions into sentences and you're sure to get a 90% or above.

~gym department~

originally created to keep our young ones fit and acceptable to society. however, as well as the intention may have been (or not been) this never seems to work, as the overweight kids usually find a clever, creative way out of every class. also, by the time you get changed and warmed-up, the dismissal bell has already rung and you are late for your next class, which is usually taught by a mean, strict, and detention-giving teacher. in short, the most exercise you get in gym class is running to your next class. plus, many gym teachers are usually borderlin obese.

In conclusion, you go into high school with friends, dreams, creativity, will to learn, and hope for the world. You come out of high school with no friends, crushed hopes, comformity, and realisation that the world sucks even worse then you once thought. To quote Happy Bunny, "High School Prepared you for the real world - which also sucks."
"But Mom said High school was fun..."

"Christ it's cold in here!"

"be yourself! (coughwithinreasonofcoursecough)

teacher:" quadratic equations are easy and fun! come on -
x4 + px2 + qx + r = 0 - who's up for it?"
student:"cricket...cricket.."

teacher:"wars usually end up in nothing but death and more wars.."
student:"than why do you have a pro-operation iraqi freedom poster on the wall?"
teacher:"uh..eh...um..DETENTION!

teacher:"this is the marker that they pound onto the tops of mountains to show that it's the highest elevation"
student:"golly gee wilikers- i thought the bottom of the mountain was actually the highest point! silly me!"

teacher: "fill in this diagram on fat composition while i go eat mcdonalds in the back of the classroom"

teacher : "what does quodamodo mean?"
student : "i don't know..what does it mean?"
teacher : "um..eh...uh..DETENTION!"

teacher :" okay. write this 2000 word comp. on what creativity means to you. and be sure to use proper grammer and 10/12 of the following vocabulary words..."

teacher : okay- run 4 laps while i sit, watch you, and yell at you.

billy:"i hate high school...alot."
bobby:"at least your not alone - everyone in the world is forced to go to school to learn how to be a free-thinking, indepentant, yet conforming and timid tool of society. "
billy:"thanks bobby...you really helped..."

A place where a child between the ages of 14 and 18 years, (sometimes more for others) is forced to be placed into an isolated classroom from the real issues of the world and is expected to learn lessons on geometrical proofs, the internal atomy of a shark, and other useless information. Of course non of the children really do learn anything they just spend their time trying to fit into one of the ten thousand groups and complaining about how much their lives suck.

Hell on Earth. Almost nothing positive comes from it. You're degraded, humiliated, ignored ,ect. The few girls who are actually good looking are dumber than a box of rocks, and further prove that girls want the guy who will treat them the most like shit over the one who won't. Everyone there acts like they are non-conforming or unique, or whatever the fuck they like to believe, despite it being far from reality. High school is also barely different from middle school despite what everyone tells you. There are still those stupid "cliques", there are still assfucks whose sole task in life is to make yours hell, and there are still stupid whores. The only differences are that you can leave campus, few people, if any, actually give a shit about you or what you do, drugs, sex, and alcohol start to become part of reality, and you also get less time to do the stupid work because you're trying to balance out the time between that,the job you'll probably have, and the assholes that are the closest things to friends you'll have.
Welcome to highschool! Enjoy your final four years of hell before collage!

A facility used to suppress the masses, usually aged 13-18 (or older, in rare cases). This suppression helps create loyal citizens with no imagination, uniqueness, or mind of their own. It's used to suppress thoughts and oppress students.

A miserable prison for young people whose lives are usually hard enough as it is. Often there's a poor kid who hasn't eaten in four days and doesn't have electricity. He sits and waits for lunch, where he gets to eat a piece of month-old bread and drink half a glass of concentrated orange juice. That is, unless someone steals it and pours it on his head. Later, he gets his clothes stolen in the locker room and a spray of deodourant in his eyeballs. Lastly he's taunted by girls who have so little ego that they mock the poor kid, just for kicks. Then he trudges home carrying a 40 pound backpack because someone forgot to pick him up.
