look up any word, like rockabilly girl:
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..."

1.An institution thought up in the bowels of hell where the main trading comodities are sex, drugs, and freshmen. Designed to prevent happiness at any cost.

2. A dark, neglected, storage space for the souls of students in little glass vials.
Johny's parents never liked him, and often threatened to send him to high school when he got older.

a place where, depending on your looks, you are classified into. why does it matter if you're a prep, gangster, ho-bag or what? you are what you are. high school is worthless. In no such way will it ever give you the skills you need for the real world.
"oh god im not wearing the designer jeans like everyone else."

Institution of education after middle school. There are two aspects to high school although too often the mingle together. They are:


The classes are either Normal (meaning idiot) or Honors or AP something similar. Ridiculous amount of homework and boring lectures are put on teenagers with the single purpose of passing a certain standardized test or another. No learning actually takes place unless the studen actually sees the bigger pictures of the atom sized government filtered details of history, english or even math they are given. But of course if the student is truly learning then he is getting bad grades. Grades have never been related to learning and never will be. Memorizatino of facts is not learning. There are many rich white kids from educated families that do well in these classes. Tying into the social aspect of kissing teachers asses.


This is where most of the problems in high school come from. People will put on extremely fake personas or completely true personas in high school. They will spend many hours trying to impress others who are trying to do the same. A very negative environment for foreign, native, rich, poor, ... pretty much everyone. There are stereotypical groups but they all blend together in their desire of uniquiness/conformity. There are kids who excel in this environment. Usually very dilligent at doing hours of homework and studying while at the same time being active in school sports/activities. Such as drama geeks, sports kids, etc. Although not much is said about their success after high school.

All in all a very bad place that has little practical value other than pumping out hundreds of tired and NOT SO READY for life kids into colleges, but the lucky and bright few do come out and do well.
A shithole that has been molding forever in a rusty metal bathroom with maggots underground in an abandoned civil war prison where hundreds of young men died of gangrene and worse. Yeah it's that bad or good depending on how you look at it.

An overated institution in America that is supposed to educate young people 14-18 years old. At it's worst a dumping ground for parents who don't want to raise their own children. Students quickly forget how great it was after their first year in college or in the work world.
Jane: Hi. Longtime no see.
Mary: Hey. What's new?
Jane: Not much. Finishing college, getting married and working.
Mary: But how? You were never a cheer leader in highschool. I was Homecoming queen. How come no one pays attention to me anymore? Here look at my senior yearbook I was voted best personality.
Jane: Gotta run. Later.
