A small community close to downtown Dallas, which has a suburban feel and is known for being the old money part of dallas. Many girls from here grow up to become debutantes for la fiesta and dallas symphony orchestra league. The boys grow up to be in the honor guard and attend business school at SMU, Texas, and various prestigious colleges. Many of the people here are stereotyped as spoiled rich brats, but not everyone deserves this label, although there are people who most definitely do. Highland Park high school is a public school but may as well be private considering the rate of ivy league admittance and the number of kids who belong to exclusive country clubs such as brookhollow country club or dcc. Not everyone at the high school is rich but almost no one is below middle class, and you will be looked down on if you don't live in a million+ home. The people in HP are generally very good looking and the women and their daughters spend lot of time on themselves to keep it that way. There are many trophy wives with charge accounts at Neiman Marcus but many people are just educated people who have had success in life. Most people here are WASPs and conservatives, and HP probably funded a large portion of George W Bush's presidential campaign.
"omg, caroline did you see that debutante who fell down during her presentation because she was drunk off champagne, those highland park debutantes sure are beautiful though!"

The girls are beautiful, the boys are well-groomed and cocky. The women are nosy and annoying (especially if mothers), and the men are aggressive and self-affirming. Money is everywhere, causing many people to simply throw change into trash cans. If you enjoy the eternal presence of cops, this is the place for you. Minorities beware: The people will act like they aren't afraid of you, but they are really terrified. Never has such a small community had so many specialized community newspapers. If you enjoy frequent ecounters with reality, do not move into Highland Park.
Hey ya'll, lets go to the burger place in Highland Park and look at all the beautiful people.

This definition is referring to Highland Park, TX. Highland Park is a community often referred to as "the bubble" in North Dallas, TX. Here, everyone's pretty due to rich men who marry beautiful women and make pretty little babies who will grow up to be pretty little parkies. Most everyone claims to be Christian, most everyone claims to be Republican, and some actually know what they're talking about, too. Highland Park High School may boast a good education, but they spend all their money on sports. Who needs an education? Now onto the students of Highland Park High School. About 98% of the kids drink or smoke. The typical HP girl runs cross country, is dating a guy who plays football, has a given name of Madeline, Madison, Caroline, Emily, or Elizabeth, is white, voted McCain/Palin when the school had its presidential election, is blonde with blue eyes, is in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), is part of the Roots club (girl's Christian club), and got totally shitfaced last weekend at so and so's party. But they still managed to show up at church the next day, wearing a dress that probably cost about $100-200 more than its worth. Needless to say, not every girl in Highland Park is like this, and not every guy is a douchebag. Just the vast majority.
Actual conversation I had yesterday with this guy who knows my brother and was driving me home:
Him: Hi, I'm John. Your brother hates me.
Me: Hahah really? Why?
Him: Because I always make fun of him for being a democrat.

Actual bible study at my church in HP:
Girl: I just don't understand how someone could be an atheist. They know they're going to hell.
Me: My brother's an atheist.
Girl: Hate to break it to you, your brother's going to hell.

Actual conversation I had with a freshman boy:
Him: I think it's stupid that my girlfriend doesn't wear makeup.
Me: Why? She's just naturally pretty.
Him: Because why would you just wanna be naturally pretty? Makeup makes everyone look better. Every girl needs makeup, it's just a fact of life.

While babysitting with my guy friend:
Him: Let's go check the parent's alcohol stash!

Facebook status when Bin Laden was killed:
Him: Now that we killed the sand nigga, let's get the other nigga out of the office.

Conversation during the 2008 election:
Girl: If Obama gets elected, I'm moving to Canada.
Me: Why?
Girl: Are you stupid? He's a terrorist.

Conversation with people from other schools:
Them: What school do you go to?
Me: Highland Park.
Them: Oh.. (looks down in disappointment)
Me: (sigh).

A small community in Dallas, Texas often referred to as the bubble. Lots of people diss HP but its really not that bad. People are PARTLY right in saying people here are snobby and rich, but saying that we are ALL really rude and snobby isn't fair though because there still some nice people who live here. We are used to expensive clothes and food, but that doesn't mean that none of us deserve it. Many people who live here own businessess and are doctors or other professions that bring in a large cash flow. People from HP are often called Parkies. Please don't pay attention to the definitions that say we are sooooooo rich and soooooo awesome and everyone is just mad because we are so much cooler than them! Those are the people in Highland Park who are conceited, spoiled brats who have access to their parents money and credit cards and can do anything they want. The majority of us are nice!
The Majority of the people in Highland Park are not snobby!

A community north of downtown Dallas, Texas. Highland Park has the biggest concentration of the following you will probably ever see: Skinny, cute blonde girls, cocky, athletic boys, and old money. Many people see Highland Park as a small community where you are looked down upon if you don't drive a BMW at 16 or wear Armani to school every day. Anyone who says this has never gotten to know kids in Highland Park. Kids dress essentially the same as any other high school in America, and drive average cars. Some kids drive very expensive cars, but most kids pay for their own.

Also HP is often called the "bubble" because unless you have a reason to go outside of HP (i.e. work, school, etc) there is no reason to. It has everything you could ever need in this 25 square mile community. HP is also the most expensive community to live in within Texas.

The landscape is a very tightly compacted residential area with a very large house popping up every once in awhile. This is because way back in the day people bought small houses on small lots in HP, but now people are buying ajacent lots and building large houses on them.

Highland Park High School has consistently made Newsweek's Top 25 American High Schools. This is because of their superb academics, and they also have one of the greatest overall athletic programs anywhere in the United States. So far, this year they have been state champions in football, golf, girl's swimming & diving, tennis, and wrestling. And we havent even concluded spring sports.

A rich, pretentious neighborhood, mostly full of rich, conservative, Caucasian Christians, located in Dallas. Highland Park is full of simple minded idiots, who frown upon individuality. In fact, just about anyone who isn't rich, conservative, straight, Caucasian, or Christian is fair game for their bullying. In Highland Park, people care more about their money than other people or even the environment. Highland Park highschool, obviously located in HP, is comparable to an insane asylum. Most of the school's "darling students" spend the weekends drinking, screwing eachother, and getting high of ADHD medication. Most HP highschool girls dress like sluts, and act as if they rule the world. Pretty much every girl wears shorts under a foot long, with a shirt so oversized you can't even see the shorts. As far as credibility, I've had the misfortune of attending the school for the past two years, and I've hated everyday of it. If you aren't a typical "Parkie", as they're called, then you will spend almost everyday in HP feeling lonely, depressed, hatred filled, and/or suicidal. Highland Park is Hell, bursting at the seams.

Welcome to Highland park where the rich get richer and the poor, well there are no poor. A place where you can live in complete ignorance of the world but still think you are helping to make it a better place. Please feel free to stop by our high school to meet our girls that have been on the pill since 12 and our overly pretentious boys who believe everyone wants part of who they are. HPHS is a place where you don't get F's, you get E's. Because in Highland Park you don't fail, you'd have to be in the real world to do that. Here is a place where people aren't out right mean to you, that is unless you were to offend "what they stand for," but they speak to you with ice in their voice.
Highland Park is the Stepford of the real world. Everything is so awfully perfect that you would suspect robots, only robots would be a welcome replacement to the women that float around the town casting their ideals on the "world." The only things more fake than them are their bodies. Come to Highland park to forget your real worries and focus on...CLOTHS.
