To the students: an excuse for horny young teenagers to get together for a night of drinking, fornication and promiscuity, how romantic!

To business: a corporate-controlled/ promoted high school "institution" that makes the dress shops, hairdressers, flowershops, limo companies, suit rental places, etc more wealthy.

To the students who don't get to go: a lifelong regret, an occasion that fat chicks can not get a date for.Makes more people unhappy than any one other thing in highschool...
I borrowed Dad's car, then spent $400 on renting a suit, buying flowers, tickets to the prom, some liquor and a locket on a chain for her. Oh, and condoms. She bought a dress, got her hair and 20 nails done, bought shoes,tear-off underwear,a purse, and got a horrendous period an hour before midnight.
So she gave me a blowjob just like any other date, and she's still a virgin.

A wonderful beautiful fun place that I won't ever actually know about because I won't ever get asked.

A night where girls to young to go, as well as college girls, sit around and wait for pictures to be posted. This is so they can judge hard on the girls that look like sloots as well as the ones you look just terrible.
"Can't wait for prom pictures to come up tonight!"

A formal occasion to mark the end of school and moving onto college. Girls and Boys both pay a large amount of money to the organises, who then take this money and turn peoples dreams into reality. It usually includes large marquees, dj's, all decorated with fairy lights. Girls wear expensive dresses which keep them dignified and elegant. It is a night to remember and so most people tend to splash out. Boys wear suits or tuxes which ensure formal attire.
e.g. I am going to a prom at the end of my school year.
