GC is a town in western Long Island. It's an upper middle class, Republican-filled, preppy-kid haven. There isn't much diversity. In the Middle School, there are only two black students and three Asians. But there are Democrats. They're ignored and shunned during election time, but they exist.
Garden City is a major sports town. Lacrosse, football, field hockey, and track are among the most popular. Most of Manhasset is despised because it's GC's rival. All Manhasset v. Garden City games are well-attended.
One complaint that just about every normal person has is that all the "popular" kids think they are black. Especially the girls, who refer to their friends as, "their hoes." Saying that someone is "popular" is synonymous with "stupid, trashy, and slutty." They have a creepy obsession with Facebook. If you see a GC kid with over 400 pictures, they're wastes of your time.
Garden City has very few hard-working kids. But the ones who do work hard are labelled as nerds. If you're a nerd in GC, you're golden. The nerds are loved by teachers and get fantastic grades, which will most likely get you into a great college. The grades are very diverse, especially in the Middle School. You either get high 90's or low 60's. The stupid ones are usually the popular kids. Shocker.
The clothes tend to be very, very preppy. Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, Abercrombie, Vineyard Vines, and Tommy Hilfiger are usually the ones that can be seen around the halls. All bags are Coach, Gucci, Michael Kors, or Chanel.
The "wannabes" are among the most prominent of the GC High monarchy. They're basically slaves. The nerds and normal kids find it hilarious when they're forced to "fetch" the Queen Bee's water. They want to be cool, but everyone knows that they aren't. They try to gossip and act bitchy, but it just doesn't work for them.
GC students are too coddled for their own good. The Middle School was built for wussies. There, you can hand in a project three weeks late without getting points off. It's very different from the High School, where students are given a rude awakening from the very start. Very few go to boarding school, since the High School is known for its fantastic staff.
Let's face it. Garden City kids are rich, and many of them are snobby. But there are some really great kids who live here as well. The only problem is that some parents are super protective and don't let their kids watch PG-13 movies until they're out of their house. Others don't care what their kid does, as long as it doesn't shame the family name. But if you're lucky to be nice, mildly smart, and have a good family, you have it made.
Garden City popular kids think it's badass when they swear. Don't be surprised to here someone curse off, then start giggling. Just ignore them, they think they're cool.
Some of the GC slang is "sketch," "beast," and "shwag."
Sketch: Some weird or stalker-ish.
Beast: Awesome, completely amazing.
ex. "You're beast at sports!"
