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..."

A place, usually an institution or run-down shack, that teaches young and aspiring pot smokers how to get high.
Such teachings include how to properly roll a joint, inhaling and exhaling practices, good quality versus bad quality pot, ideal places to smoke, and how to cover up evidence that someone has smoked pot. Usually, if one were to pass all classes and graduate, all graduates receive one free pound of cannibus as a going away gift.
"Hey, you wanna go to the beach with us tonight?"

"Naw, thanks dude. I got High School tomorrow. I need to stay home and practice rolling this joint. We're having a test."

A place where people think that they are different from everybody else so they try to stereotype everyone into worthless catagories like "goths" and "skaters" or "preps" where in reality everyone in there is the same; trapped in a place where pain and misery get trapped in there and float around like pollen and everyone breaths it in like oxygen. Everyone has pain even the "preps"(even though they manage to have an anicdote; just wear the most expensive clothes and make sure that daddy buys you the most expensive car and the pain goes away!!!!)
You think my ass looks fat well...........go burn in High School!!!!!

Can be known as the "Best years of their lives" for some..
but for hella..and full of drama/stress and break-ups and stereotypes

Guy PrepsJocks, attend sports such as football, wreslting, baseball, they normally get the better looking girls while they have not much brains upstairs. Normally make nasty jokes about the size of their penis or how high they were the other day. Their normally tall beefy guys that all the girls drool over and are full of themselves and wouldnt be caught dead talking to someone of the lower class. Not all are like this though. listen to hip-hop and think their kinda gangster or they listen to poser alternative music.

Girl Preps These girls normally shop at abercrombie, american eagle or anchor blue. Their good looking and they sometimes put out. Some are sluts. Their mostly outgoing and are involved in leadership, student government etc. They like to party and are afraid of weed. NOrmally they walk around school with a purse, what retards. Oh and you cant forget the jeans with 10 holes in them. Listen to r&b singers and alternative rock.

Nerds They dont really give a fuck about where they fit in, they are to caught up in school and playing video games all day.

Gangsters/Mexicans/BlacksNormally hang out together, most think their hardcore gangster and like to get into fights for no reason. The girls are nasty and hate all the white chicks and want to kick all of their asses. They listen to rap/hip-hop music and hate on the white people. Gangs etc.

Punks These are the kids with the crazy hair and tight pants and van slip-ons/converse. They dont really give a fuck what people think about them and listen to music such as physcobilly/ska/punk/rockabilly. they wear leather jackets with custum designs like studs and skulls. and most are anti-government and anarchist. These kids have experiemented with shrooms/acid/e/weed and the heavey drugs. some are straight edge. They insist that "punx not dead" but it is, there is no punk bands like the ones in the 1980s

Skaters These kids hang out with the punks, wear skater shoes and shirts like emerica, dc, and band t-shirts. love to hang out at the skatepark and listen to ska/punk/metal which shoving gauges in their ears and smoke a shitload of weed. some are straight edge as well

EmoThese kids take pictures from the top of their head looking down. They normally have black/dark hair that covers their right eye. Emo boys where girl pants and 2 belts. they listen to music such as hawthorne heights/fallout boy/taking back sunday...etc. Most emos cut their wrists and spend their days and nights listening to emotional music and thinking about how horrible their life is.

Goths These kids are full of black clothing and eye makeup. Their usually very pale and wear band t-shirts. their shy and they dont talk to many people. thats why i dont kno much about them

Posers These kids wake up one day and decide oh my god! greenday? i am so into punk rock now. then they start dressing like their punks but it really just makes them look like fags because they dont kno what true punk and music really is and they think taking back sunday and greenday are punk rock.

Teachers They suck. They make less than the people at the grocerie store and they give us a shitload of homework for no fucking reason. Hisotry is useless. they make us stay in school for up to 7 hours doing useless work and getting stereotyped. yay

Student Government A group of people consisting of preps and nerds that are normally snotty.
"So..hows high school"

"It sucks, i got called a nerd today! i think ill go cut tonight"
