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..."

Highschool can suck somtimes.
by Niggerdamus August 29, 2006
A shithole that everyone must go to every day, from 7:30 in the morning to 3:00 in the afternoon, every week, for almost 10 months. These days, high school is a fucking pain in the ass. First you must deal with fitting in and actually making some fucking friends. You need to deal with your old friends changing and acting like an ass towards you. At the same time, if you actually give two shits about getting a decent job when you're older, you must focus on your studies and make sure you get the best marks possible. If you're sick as a fucking dog and have to stay home for a week, the teachers have absolutely zero sympathy for you. You miss shitloads of handouts, assignments and lengthy notes that in no way can you work on at home. You must find out what homework you missed by calling about 5 fucking different people and attempt to catch up WHILE dealing with your illness. If you tell your teacher that you were sick and couldn't think properly, they will just shout at you and punish you accordingly. You fucking kill yourself trying to understand that cursed bit of math that your teacher never explained to you because you were away. You freak out and end up hitting the sac at 1 in the motherfucking morning. Meanwhile, you are trying to cope with a tight, phlegmy throat that is fucking annoying and won't go away. A part of you wants to go to school the next day and not miss out on any more shitty work, and another part of you wants to stay home, heal some more, and have a blast playing video games. You freak out some more, toss a few things around and shed a few tears. Then you eventually calm down.

Some people consider high school a breeze; others do not. For some it is the most treacherous thing they can think about; for others it is exciting and enjoyable. All in all, teachers suck, students suck, assignments suck, homework sucks, handouts suck, being ill sucks, and as a whole, the chore known as school is the fucking scum of the earth.
Johnny gets sick Sunday night and stays home Monday and Tuesday. He tries his best to call his friends and catch up on as much work as possible. On Wednesday, he departs for his high school and has the worst day of his life. His teachers were an ass towards him and he now has shitloads of work to do. Johnny wishes school never existed.

A place where teenagers ranging usually from age 13 to 18 go to work their ass off,or slack off,or do not so good,or not as good as they were capable of doing,for 4 years,maybe more depending on how bad you fuck up,or the circumstances you were in.if you fuck up good luck taking the class over again.a place where there is no use fighting with teachers,they win,you find you just do what you have to do and get it over with,because the second time will be worst than the first time.A place where you don't really go to learn educational stuff,you go to learn life lessons,and more about yourself that you didn't know,you meet people you wont ever forget,you meet people you forget the next day.A place where the pressure is crazy.A place where there are fake ass bitches,and drama like a bitch! but you hopefully eventually learn to deal,and not let it get to you.A place where no matter how many sex ed teachers come in to talk to your class and show you pictures of people with STD's,and all the sob stories, it probably wont change your mind about having sex,it just doesn't.A place you probably cant wait to get out of but miss it later on in your life.A place where drugs are everywhere and your one strong person to never use ever during high school.or you probably never had the opportunity to and if you did,you probably would try. But either way the temptation is there,and you'll wonder about the feeling it gives you.A place where you meet some actual decent people,you call "my girls","my boys","my niggas","my bitches" etc.A place where you go to try to impress people you probably dont know but know OF,a place where you try to feel good about yourself but you feel certain people are SO much better looking than you,and you sometimes want their life.A place where you have so many insecurities. A place where you try your best to hold secrets.A place where pregnancies,abortions,car accidents,and death happen.A place that brings you up and pulls you down in a hearbeat.A place where you don't understand your feelings most the time.A place where you'll hate and strongly dislike some people.A place where you say "fuck teachers" "fuck high school" "fuck this class" "i miss being a kid","this is too much work", "FUCK THIS".A place that parents or guardians will just NEVER understand why you do the things you do,why you hang out with the ones you do,or why you want what you want,they usually don't want to,or just don't take the time to.A place where you go and you learn a lot about yourself,a place that changes you,for better or for worst.A place that will make you or fucking break you.
highschool : you decide how you want those 4 years to be
by ya already know August 03, 2007
1.Anyone who says that these are the best 4 years of your life needs to get a better job
2. A place to target practice my new Ak-47
3. The best place to hide your stash
4. A place where you learn how to get high, hence the name high school
High school was the WORST years of my life next to middle school.
by Tom Bomb December 24, 2005
Where middle school meets the real world. There are 4 levels of education in high school; Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior year. Each of which have their own stereotype in itself.

High school is Junior High gone bad. People begin to classify themself into different groups and each group thinks of themselfs as normal as everyone else are just stereotypes. High school meets the real world because there are more cases of drug abuse, truancy, pregnancy, obscene language and higher rates of drop outs. People are too busy trying to stand out yet fit in and assure themselves that they aren't a conformist. When they finally graduate (or drop out) they usually realize how immature they were in high school.

High school is where teenagers engage in a broad range of subjects which will make little difference in the future.
High school is the mixing bowl before upcoming years puts everyone into perspective.

10: At school, we want you to think for yourself. This is why we take big measures to shut you up when you challenge us. Our lump of mus- I mean brain, swells up at the slightest hint of rebellion

9: The counselors are always here to help you. From bullying to suicide, you can always count on us, whether is it pretending to care about your stupid teenage drama, or wacking off secretly at your rock concert

8: Honey, I know you're failing, and that you are a hopeless shit, but... GOOD JOB!!

7: If you're going to homework, get need to GET A LIFE. GET INVOLVED! Now, 10 pounds of homework, due tomorrow!

6: Remember to show your school spirit! Our football team sucks ass! We're holding a pep rally to honor their defeat from Altoona!

5: Our food is made from the finest bits of rubber and mold residue! No wonder when you eat at school, you get a great meal at a great price!

4: Be an individual. Our job here is to prepare you to become productive sheeps of society.

3: Our no drug program has reduced drug use by 50%. We pride ourselves in having the most drunk parties in the nation and being a top-ranked party school.

2: You will look back fondly over these years. Our SAT has ruined your life, our seniors have forced you to give blowjobs, and getting up a 5:30 for another bleek day of wrinkly old grannies are your fondest memories.

1: We pride ourselves on having the best and brightest teachers in the nation. Our students have gone off to become the most accomplished men and women. This is why you have the sex-deprived pedophile for history, and the never-smiling hobos as classmates
The decleration of Schooldependence

yep, high school
by lalahola January 10, 2009
high school is one of the greatest things to compare to and make fun of, only because its so easy to target. there is no being "unique" because in some way everyone is copying someone else. you can't walk down the hall without a rumour spreading that you were checking out barbie's boyfriend ken. its usually easier for the guys, its always the girls fighting over them now a days. if a girl hooks up with some guys shes a slut but if a guy hooks up with some girls hes cool, look up to. a pimp? sure. people think its cool to get drunk at this point in their life. high school is the smallest portion of our life but to some people it matters the most. why is this?
high school is overrated.
