A large Bulding full of crazy dumb ass teenagers from the ages 14-18. Most children who attend High Schools group them selves into the fallowing categories:

(Prep)-most "preps" wear wear designer or abercrombie/hollister clothing. most are active in sports, and smart when it comes to academics. are always the richest kids in school. mainly listen to pop culture music, hip hip(what they refur to as rap), or sometimes old music like the beatles. the genrally are nice, but when the are only amongst each other they can become extremely nasty about other children. For some reason over the years of evolution of high school grouping teachers these day tend to have a much stronger likeing for this categorie of teens.

(skaters) This group of teens generally do pot, and oviously skate. They all hang out with at the skate park together after school, and generally date younger preps. They listen to punk rock like the used, taking back sunday, Chiodos, etc. skaters tend to wear skinny jeans, large skate shoes, baggy skate shirts, baggy sweatshirts, and have long hair.

(hipsters)this categorie is relitively new in the world of high school social grouping and there very phew kids are classified in this category. what almost all kids that go to art college are known as to the rest of the world. They listen to what most people think is weird unknown music like Animal Collective, MGMT, Passion Pit, etc. they genrally are more mature then most kids in high school, and know that everyone in high school is dumb and retarted. they genrally wear skinny cords, large v-neck shirt, and ither burkenstocks or sanuk slip ons. genrally smoke massive amounts of pot daily to get through high school, and are more advanced when it comes to the arts. Hipsters hair tends to very from mohawks to dreds.

(punk) this group of teens is becoming more non existent. It was much more common in the 90's. most punks listen to music like anti flag, msi, nofx, etc. most punks are fairly skinny, and have mohawks, shaved head, or longish hair. they wear ither wear extremly baggey jeans with chains or extremly tight skinny jeans with chains. often are seen with no shirts outside of school, but in school normally a sweatshirt or band tee will do. this particular group of teens tends to drop out of high school. they are often the teens that are heavy moshers.

(emo) some of the high schools in richer areas tend to not have this group of kids. (i dont know y) they are a poser-like version of skaters and punk combined. They listen to a more "hard-core" version of the music skaters tend to listen to. examples: bring me the horizon, a day to remember, Saosin, etc. emo's tend to wear extremly tight skinny jeans, converse sneakers, tight band tees, and eyeliner. emo hair verys from what is known as the "shot gun" to longish hair. hair tend to ither be black or white with extra clors put in. most emo's tend to be bisexual, and are very emotional, and in touh with there feeling. they tend to write a lot of poetry.

(scenester) this genre of teen is relitively new and not as common. They are based from emos, and tend to be a more materialistic, dramatic, and prettier version of emos. They tend to have londer hair, and they tease there hair to make it very big. they tend to wear skinny jeans, fancy shoes like ballet flats for girls, and flashy sneakers for guys. They tend to also wear tight tops, but more fashionable tops. there hair is usually more colorful then the average emos. they listen to what is closer to "rave" muic, like nightcore, or the average screamo rap like brokencyde. other music includes jeffree star, and hollywood undead.

(goth) this form of teen is much like the punks in the way that there are also lesser and lesser or this type. most goths wear large platform combat boots, watch anime, and are regularly dapressed that the emos/scenes are becoming more popular in the world of high school social gouping. goths tend to listen to marylin manson, aiden, old afi, etc.

(nerds)if you live in a richer area (like me) then there are much more nerds genrally half the school or more. so (in my case) this group is not used often because so many people are. They genrally are asian (idk y) and play lots of video games and are in A&E math in 8th grade and there for have to take crazy advanced math classes at the local college (in my case princeton university) most nerds are very scared of girls who are ot also nerds. they also tend to wear abercrombie/hollister much like the preps in an attempt to highten there social status in part from being in all the advanced classes.

(norms) this group of teens tends to jump from group to group, or is almost a prep but not quite. they tend to be the most friendly people in the school, and are the most social group out there, they almost make a group of there own from not belonging to any other groups.

high school consists of many sub groups among those, but those are he major ones. high school is boring, childish, and pointless in every way. the teachers give a massive amount of home work and long lessons on things that ither have no use in day to day life, or we already know. the only reason teenagers do not drop out is because the adults ave made a world that we have to do long, boring, childish things before we can actually live our lives. It is extemely easy to get suspended from high school espeially if you are retarted and jack off infront of everyone in the middle of detantion (ben walnetz) that will get you suspended for about 3-4 days. princepals in most high school have no purpose but to make the teens that are sent there repeat the reason they are there, then gives them staerday/or suspends them. also he/she tends to stand in the halls becuase he/she has othing better to do and yells at kids to put away there "electronic devises" or they will revieve a saterday. High School is really just a load of bullshit that you just need to get through so that you can do what you want for the rest of your life, unless you going to cllege. I recomend ither being homeschooled, or going to an art high school.
High school is the most time wasting 4 years of your life, especially if you live in saburbia.

Basically, it's hell.
Well, high school. You know..
It's pretty self-explanatory, really.

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.

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..."
