|1.||Kemps Landing Magnet School|
Kemps Landing Magnet School is a place where the smart people are segregated from everyone else. However, there are a great many exceptions to the 'smart' bit. Many people believe that the principal, Mrs. Riesbeck, is a man. Like Ann Coulter. There has been a recent attempt by the School Board to desegregate the school and merge it with a normal public school, but it was voted down.
People say that Kemps Landing Magnet School is the most sheltered middle school in the city. And they're right.
Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts.
1) A state-wide residential magnet school for Louisiana's gifted and talented students of grades 11 and 12 located on the campus of Northwestern State University in Natchitoches.
2) A school with many fine looking girls, hard academics, and has more drama than Laguna Beach.
David: Hey Jake, did u hear about this magnet school called LSMSA?
Jake: Yea, I heard its a tough school, but the girls are hot.
|3.||Langley High School|
Ah Langley... so many things are said about it. Most people from Northern Virginia, especially Mclean High School, Langley's rival, will remark that Langley is nothing but a bunch of rich, stuck-up, snobs living off "daddy's money". It is true that Langley High School parents are mostly well-off but that does not mean that all of them raise their children to be ungrateful, selfish snobs. In fact, every school has its population of sluts, drug dealers and doers, snobs, daddys-girls, dumb jocks, etc. Langley is just the school people decide to stereotype. But any school can fit that make. Additionally a lot of people that go to Langley are "real", have jobs, work hard in school and in sports.more...
As a result, Langley students consistently have the highest SAT scores in the region (not including Thomas Jefferson, a magnet school), are ranked highest among other regional school's in Newsweeks top 100, perform well at sports (often times beating McLean - a lot), have higher acceptance rates at Ivy League colleges and in state schools such as UVA and William and Mary.
Furthermore, when writing an urban dictionary entry, they are smart enough to make a logical arguement enumerating why it is that they are better than McLean High School, and to simply point out that people shouldn't steroetype. Look at the facts (entry number 2 especially) and you will see that when Langley students say they are better at something than another - often times they are. This runs the gammit from ath...
|4.||southwest high school|
Southwest High School (or Southwest Senior High) is a high school in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It's considered the best public high school in the city. It's in the top 200 high schools in the country according to Newsweek, but Newsweek rankings are kinda messed up if you ask me. It's still a pretty good school.more...
50% of Southwest students are in the IB program. That means 50% of Southwest students were in the top 20% of their 8th grade class. So in a way Southwest is kind of a magnet school, or at least it tends to attract the upper/upper middle class kids from around the city. It's still diverse though and has a lot of students from the lower-income bracket. It is also ethnically diverse despite having the lowest Hmong and Somali populations of any high school in the city.
Most of the athletic teams kind of suck, but Southwest tends to do well at track and soccer. About half the kids at the school are "on" cross-country, but only 100 or so actually show up.
As for culture... I'd say that Southwest is pretty diverse lol. There's a HUGE subculture of artsy theatre kids. There's practically a play every week. But there's also a lot of trendy people and some ghetto people. Most people are pretty normal though. People drink and smoke weed but they don't really talk about it, and harder drugs are definitely rare.
But at Southwest, drinking and smoking don't really make you cool... being cool is more like acting really really white. Lik...
|5.||United High School Magnet|
A magnet school of a few hundred students within the larger United High School. The school's electives are built around engineering. Magnet students are not an even cross section of United High School, however. First, most magnet students are intelligent and know fluent English, a rarity in the city of Laredo. Everyone in magnet also seems to get along well, another uncommon occurrence.
Most Magnet classes are difficult. They are much more difficult than "regular"/"non-magnet" high school courses but are weighted the same as them. There are, of course, classes like ECAD, with their, um, rather unique curriculum and reputation.
Teachers at the magnet have a reputation for being bad ass. They make their class difficult, but in style.
Overall, the whole magnet experience is enjoyable. It is the place to go in Laredo for the best academic program with plenty of fun in it.
Typical conversation the United High School Magnet is referenced in:
Student: I'm the United High School valedictorian. I have a GPA of 106 out of 100.
Anyone Else: What was your SAT score?
Student: An 1850 on the 2400 scale.
Anyone Else: Oh, you must be non-magnet. See, magnet students have harder classes and, thus, lower GPAs but way higher SAT/ACT/AP scores than you.
|6.||North Davidson High School|
Est. 1952, ranked top 5% of national public high schools.more...
The majority of the student population has about 9 polos in their closet, a mirage of Khaki pants, shorts, and for girls, skirts. Preppy is probably the most common style.
The Popular Girls- They play sports ie, Softball, Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, or Golf. The softball team is pretty amazing. They wear jean skirts so short that you can see their underwear when they walk-Seriously, I'm not kidding. They wear tight tshirts and carry designer bags. They drive convertibles or large SUVs and it's pretty much a rule that to be in this crowd, you have to 1-have a father more rich than God himself, 2-Have a tanning bed in your basement or go tanning at least 3 times a week, and 3-Party more often and harder than Motley Crue. These girls often go to Church on sunday with their families with lots of make up to conceal the hickies and or dark circles from partying all night. Most of them lose their virginities at age 14.
The Jocks- North has a pretty decent athletic program, and it caters to boys. Football, Baseball, Basketball and Soccer are the games of choice. All of them party with mentioned popular girls, and listen to rap music that talks about things they've never exp...
|7.||High Tech High School|
Usually referred to as simply High Tech, it is a magnet high school in North Bergen, New Jersey, whose mascot is the contreversial and mysterious lasercat. You should only go there if you're interested in musical theater or science because every other course sucks. It recieves an inordinant amount of applicants and only accepts the ridiculously low percentage of around 10%. However, it is only difficult to get into if you are white because the school attempts to keep a racial gradient of about 50% hispanic, 30% indian, 15% asian, 10% black, and 5% white. Because of this, the only white kids that get in are usually smart while the rest of the students range from above average to mildly retarded.more...
As previously mentioned, the science courses and the musical theater department are spectacular. However, literally every other subject blows fat donkey dick and a good fourth of the students are smarter than most of their teachers.
High Tech used to be filled with pretty cool kids but is now full of annoying musical theater kids who burst into song at every opportunity and are open or closeted homosexuals, gameboy-hugging nerds who spend their free time studying, and overly-religious muslims who spout absurdly conservative views as if they are fact.
In every class, there will be a small handful of really cool kids (probably from Bayonne
