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 Text books are outdated by 15 to 20 years and most teachers spend more time telling the class about their personal life than actually teaching.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.

A place that rewards incompetence and conformism. Crams thousands of hormone charged teens into a bulidng, makes them eat lunch way too early, and uses peer pressure to destroy your self-esteem. Also uses incredibly hard classes filled with useless information to fuck up your social life and your relationship with your parents. Nothing you learn will be of any use in the real world and the overall goal is to break your spirit so the government can pick up the pieces and make you what they want.
High school destroyed my life and my mind.

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.

A place where they stick 14-18 year olds just to stop them from terrorizing our cities. They claim "learning" goes on here, but all that really happens is some boring ass teachers tell us to memorize pointless facts we'll never use. they tell you to "be creative" but no one ever is because they know as soon as they do something creative or something the teacher doesn't agree with they get an automatic f. interchangable with hell.
Tom: Did yu go to high school today?

Jeff: Hell no, no one that goes to that hellhole comes out normal.
Tom: Agreed.
