Verona's teenagers attend Verona Area High School, a school revered by oversheltering parents as a safe haven for their teenagers, as it has less physical violence than Madison's high schools, West and Memorial. However, the typical Verona High student, although free from physical violence, is probably just as corrupt as their West or Memorial counterpart.
A typical female Verona High student is either pregnant or good with contraceptive use, and will not hesitate to look at you from top to bottom to not-so-conspicuously judge what you're wearing. Due to Verona High's diminutive size, there are many rumors spread throughout the school.
A Verona girl will probably be proud enough of her boyfriend to take far too many pictures of herself with him, upload them to her Myspace, and have to delete them within a few weeks. After a week-long breakup process, the cycle repeats with a different Verona boy. Such is similar to a female's 28-day menstrual cycle.
To be a Verona girl who can attract a Verona boy, you must be aesthetically pleasing by American society standards; Verona boys are incredibly shallow and overwhelmingly dramatic. A Verona boy may declare his love to you at the drop of a hat, but if you shave your head, you've pretty much lost all value as a person.
Because Verona has absolutely nowhere interesting to go shopping, many of Verona's teens will frequent the West Towne Mall in Madison during summer and weekends. This is about as close to being unsheltered from Verona as they get. Shopping at Hot Topic is considered extremely alternative-cultured. Some may consider it pathetic to be so ignorant of the non-Verona world around you, but since they're too enclosed in Verona, they don't know what they're missing and they're probably happy.
The Verona teens who try to rebel will typically overemphasize drug use (i.e. telling people they are not "weed virgins" after inhaling secondhand weed smoke) and stay out "late" (10 or 11 PM is considered "late") doing absolutely nothing. This scares the majority of Verona parents, so I guess they get what they want.
VERONA BOY: Hi, my name is (Robert/Jake/Matt/some other stereotypical modern white guy's name), and I'm from Verona. You may have seen me getting major highs from this guy's weed last night; I was inhaling so much of his smoke. My girlfriend, (Jessica/Ashley/Brittany/some other stereotypical modern white girl's name), and I went out and stayed on the Verona campus until 10:30 one night, it was so awesome and rebellious. I had another girlfriend, (Jessica/Ashley/Brittany/some other stereotypical modern white girl's name), but she got all weird and shaved her head so she's not a good person anymore. I'm going to play one of the three Fenders my parents bought me, even though I have no idea how to play guitar.
This is a town were everyone is realated, everyone knows eachother, and even if you haven't met a person, you know EVERYTHING about them. In this town, the population is 75% white, italian, irish; 13% asian 5% black 2% spanish/hispanic 5% indian. Basically everyone is Catholic, going to Our Lady of the Lake or Saint Catherine's. This town would be nothing without Bloomfield Avenue, the heart of Verona.
The youth of Verona keeps the town in tact. The town is broken up into four parts by elementry school, Forest, Brookdale, Laning, and FN Brown. Forest and Brookdale tend to be close, same with Laning and FN Brown. After graduating elementry school, the best years of your life, you go to the middle school. Henry B Whitehorne is known as some of the WORST years of your life. Some of the well-known teachers make those years good, but usually the bad teachers outnumber them. And the principal will make your years a living hell. In middle school, everyone comes together and loose their elementry cliques. From 6th to 8th grade, you hang out at Cinema 23, and meet the kids from Cedar Grove, our neighboring town.
Once your days at HBW are over, you head on down to the High School, Verona High School. This is when your real life starts. Parties every weekend, drinks included. Most kids choose to get high and drink at Split and Lookout, but some kids. who'se unaware parents like to leave them home alone, choose to throw their own parties and drink the entire stock of their parents alcohol. By high school, you loose touch with CG and become close friends with the grades above you. As a freshman, you are mostly picked on by the Juniors and Seniors, and some upperclassmen take advantage of these freshman, trying to "get with them" on weekends. MDW and Prom weekend hold the record for the most passouts and blackouts.
Verona football games are the most notortious events of the school year. Kids tailgate at the pool parking lot and other places and then head over to the Verona football field to scream their drunk butts off at the opposing team. Verona kids who do this are know as those who "rule the bleachers" Freshman stand at the bottom and are slaves to the uppper classmen who sit at the top. They fetch water and gatorade and then get sun flower seeds and drinks spit out at them.
After high school is long over, kids go off to nothing special colleges to go on to become teachers and community workers. They eventually migrate back to Verona where they repeat the circle of Verona life with their "out of town" spouses. Then their kids live out the same miserable life as their parents did.
Verona is a nothing special suburb where there is most drama than your average suburban town and more wannabe Guidos than the Jersey shore, which is a second home to many Verona families. If you ever consider going to Verona, do not:
1. Trust the first people you meet.
2. Lurk everyone on Facebook/Myspace
3. Make your self seem badass to "fit in"
4. Be fake
5. Take obscure pictures of your self, mainly chest area, for you will only be judged even worse.
Welcome to Verona, where you will be judged worse than Simon Cowell on American Idol...
"I was thinking about going to Spilt, you coming?"
"Hell yes, i plan on getting totally wasted before tomorrow's Verona football game"
"I hope no beat freshman come"
"You know bro."
