High school is a failed experiment in preparing young people for the adult world. All high schools in the country were built around 1960 and were designed to hold about half as many students as they currently do. Nothing seems to work quite right in a high school building. The heaters only work during the summer and the air conditioning only works in the winter. The asbestos insulation has all fagged out and the building becomes an oven or a meat locker, depending on the time of year. The plumbing is usually a disaster in high school, with drinking fountains never working but toilets that never stop running.

High schools are usually poorly run by a team of out of touch assholes, also known as Principals, counselor, teachers, and ex-Marine drill sergeants (gym teachers). These people seem hell bent on destroying all hope for students through tedious testing, poorly planned projects, educational videos made during the Truman Administration, and text books that mention the Soviet Union on every page.

High school is also the place where the stress of growing up and the stress of fitting in join forces to destroy even the strongest among us. Most of High school is not spent learning but involves trying to find friends who aren't complete douche bags, trying hook up with people of the opposite sex unsuccessfully, combing your hair, buying cloths in the effort that someone will notice you, working out so you will not get your ass kicked everyday, trying desperately to get rid of the zits that have taken over your face, driving a car that a homeless person wouldn't piss in or riding on an over crowed bus while choking on diesel fumes, while people you don't know make fun of you worse then your friends do, and on top of all of that, you must act like nothing is wrong in your life.
High school is a place where everyone acts like their lives are great but are really dead inside.

The scars of High School last long after graduation day.

A place that you waste 4 years (or maybe more, if you suck at it) of your life feeling either inferior or incredibly godly. No one will like you either way. This period of your life is pretty much just a time slot filler until your body stops looking freakish so you can enter the world without making people gag when they see you.
Wow. I just spent 4 years in a hellhole. Does the government know about high school? Is the government behind this high school whatnot? Eep!

"The best years of your life" as my mother says while she reads her 1977 yearbook.
Also known as Hell.
Contains a vast and diverse variety of teenagers yet they all fit snugly into categories and labels administered by their peers... some of the unfortunate ones are not teenagers anymore. We call those ones the slackers.
Controlled by sadistic "teachers" and "councillors", etc.
I fell asleep in English class and got in trouble with the teacher. I also forgot my homework. I got a detention.
