Adlai E Stevenson High School (SHS)
It is the local public high school in lincolnshire Illinois. It is considered as one of the best in the country and contains over 4,500 students. The mascot is the patriot, sporting the school colors green and gold. There are two large buildings (dubbed the old and new building) Despite the size, anyone with an ounce of logic can manage to not get lost because of the convenient signs posted at any given intersection of hallways. The new building is shaped like a square, making it even harder to get lost because all you have to do to find your way back is to continue walking. There are an amazingly high amount of security guards who bust kids and write them up for disobeying the stupidest rules. For example, sitting on the stairs, having your cell phone out inside a building before school starts (just recently changed, actually), and telling members of there many sports teams to put their equipment in their incredibly inconvenient lockers or else they will be written up for carrying a weapon (sorry to the hockey, field hockey, baseball, and lacrosse teams) There is also a club for almost anything imaginable and many electives to choose. Besides that, there are an ample amount of accelerated, honors, and AP classes to place into or choose. As for food, the vending machines are stocked with junk food, ice cream, and zero calorie coke-related sodas. For lunch, there is rarely a healthy choice. As for busses, they can be described as over crowded. Most busses have students sitting two or three to a seat, which may not seem bad, but try to imagine three teenagers squeezing into a bus seat with all of their backpacks and whatever else they brought to school that day. However, the worst bus complaint appears to be a joint one from the boys soccer teams, girls field hockey teams, and tennis teams, who all have to share a single bus to take them to the Vernon hills athletic complex (VHAC) where their practices are. It has been described as a race to get on the bus in which at least 20 people lose each day. Those unlucky ones are left to wait until the bus comes back to pick them up and then get punished for arriving late to practice.
student one: ugh, I hate this. I have seventh in the old building in the 1900s and eighth in the new building in the 8000s. my locker is in the 2500s and I can't go back or I'll miss the VHAC bus and then coach will make me run extra laps.
student two: then just bring your bag to your last few classes.
student one: *annoyed look* I tried that already. Those nazi security guards said that if I didn't keep my bag in my locker, I'd get detention for carrying around a weapon. the ass-holes. Ugh, there is no way I am coming here on saturday morning for detention!
Student two: why do you even have to get there so early any way?
Student one: because my team shares with all three field hockey teams and all of the boys soccer teams. ugh, i hate them all. Stevenson sucks.
student two: that's tough.
