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 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..."

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.

a place where a bunch of different people are supposed to learn and figure out what they want to do with their lives. Mostly its a place with many hookup, breakups, crushes, new and old friends, lying, cheating, boring

there are so many people who are trying to belong to the many groups
you got the: jocks, goths, punks, dirty kids, gangstas, wangstas, dorks, preps, popular kids, cheerleaders, fags, special ed kids, cool smart kids, druggies, fat kids, brown-nosers, the kids who just dont belong, the band geeks, the art freaks, the yearbook staff, and the kids who need to learn how to brush their hair
So many people hate high school

Death. You waste your entire youth trying to be cool by drinking/smoking. You'll look back in 5 years and cry at the thought of ever going back. Do not attend your reunion
High school will be the whole of your youth. wasted.
