For some it is their ticket out of poverty. For others it is a place to bitch about poverty.

A place that most people whine and complain about to no end. It's where we socialize and get prepared for the real world. It's where we make friends so we don't have to spend our life alone. Although not everything we learn there is important, a lot of it is. Plus, learning unnecessary things is still developing your thinking and understanding skills. School is what prevents our brains from turning to mush, and also where we can get away from our annoying parents and be with friends for about 7 hours a day.
Ryan: I hate school. We spend most of our childhood to teenage life sitting in a desk being forced to abide by teachers' rules and wasting our time learning pointless things.

Amanda: Suck it up. School is where we learn to think and make friends. Don't be so negative.

A portmanteau word used in local California dialect comprised of sick and cool.

Some common phrase, in which the word is used to prevent colliding syllables, include freaking school, hella school, and fucking school.

A place of education that is meant to look right,but is actually wrong,because the kids are meant to look like they have been put in a certain group,like the special class,to help them socialise,but are actually being kept apart,so they don't pickpocket each other.
They were very upset about being put in a special school,but never why...until later on in life.
