2.
The best person from a class, usually selected on grades, school activities and character/leadership. Also delivers the valedictory at graduation ceremonies.
Jimmy was valedictorian of his high school, he had a 4.0, was starting quarterback, and lead his debate team to nationals.

3.
The kid with the highest GPA in high school. Stereotypically spends all free time doing homework, studying, and not having friends. Occasionally will actually be a raw-ass kid who wings every test, turns in homework 2 months late, and just chills instead of working 10 times harder like the #2 kid. May even have friends and not have a stuck-up attitude. May even have a boyfriend/girlfriend.

K maybe not that last one, but hey, one can dream
Student 1: Dude that chick studies way too much
Student 2: Yeah she def does, even on Friday and Saturday nights
Student 1: She's probably gonna be valedictorian
Student 2: Lol sucks to be her
Student 1: Lol

Student 1: Dude that kid must study all the time and have no friends to get so smart
Student 2: No dude, he's a major slacker and he's pretty alright and legit
Student 1: Oic
Student 2: Ya
Val: 'sup bros
Student 1: 'sup dude
Student 2: I heard you were gettin' it
Val: Nah I'm definitely not gettin' it from anyone, being smart doesn't count for shit with the ladies
Student 1: Damn
Student 2: Shit nigga
