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.

1) something you forget about the minute you leave, including all social ties and academic achievements.

2) a state of being that does not matter to anyone except those mired within it
high school student: im a loner and someone made fun of me three months ago. i'm going to be a failure in life, so why don't i shoot up my school?

high school graduate: dude, high school is less a factor in dictating the rest of your life than the piss you flush down the urnial every day at school. just cruise through, chill out, and go to college, where the petty bullshit that constitutes high school life is less than a distant memory.

A high school is a porthole to hell where everyone goes insane ranging causes such as:
Keeping track of who the slutty girls in your school are going out with.
Trying to be cool.
Trying to find wtf crowd you belong in.
#1 Trying to keep sane.
There are also an ass load of crowds, as described above.
Ooooooooooo no!

Essentially, High School is best described as "it's hell with windows."
High School is the worst time in anyone's life.

A place where people age 14-18 are required to go to. Text books are outdated by 15 to 20 years and most teachers spend more time telling the class about their personal life than actually teaching. Also, many teachers double as coaches for the schools sports teams, and would rather talk about last night's game than explain the lesson. The gym teacher will make you feel like shit and the health teacher will tell you never to have sex one (you'll get AIDS and die!) and will then procede to show you a video on birth control and how to use condoms.

In my high school experience, I didn't really see any real cliques. It wasn't like the preps only hung out with the preps and the goths only hung out with the goths. But maybe that was just my school.

High school is also home to insane dress codes, shitty food, graffiti, fights, vicious rumors, and noting that will prepare you for the real world.

However, high school is still way better than middle school.
At my high school the heater never worked, people huffed glue in the bathrooms, my chemistry teacher told me I would go nowhere in life, and approximately forty percent of the students were involved in a gang.

All the worlds horrors, all the things and people you dispise and dread most, compacted into one building.
"Hey Mark, what's that smell?"

"It's the smell of burning souls in dreams inside our public High School."

A place that you waste 4 years (or maybe more, if you suck at it) of your life feeling either inferior or incredibly godly. No one will like you either way. This period of your life is pretty much just a time slot filler until your body stops looking freakish so you can enter the world without making people gag when they see you.
Wow. I just spent 4 years in a hellhole. Does the government know about high school? Is the government behind this high school whatnot? Eep!

Highschool is an intermediary between elementary school and college. In the US, it is essentially a federally funded daycare and provides as much of an education as prison provides rehabilitation.
Susie: Daddy, read me a story.

Dad: Uh, daddy can't read.

Susie: Why not, daddy?

Dad: because daddy's highschool didn't think it was odd that he couldn't read or write. They also didn't think it was worth the trouble to fail him if he didn't learn.
