I was raised in Severna Park. Sadly, we do believe we are rich. However, once you grow up and see a little more of the world you realize we are pseudo-snobs. The houses in Potomac and Bethesda are about 3x the size and 10x the price. Their kids go to Georgetown prep and are related to the power elite. Severna Park is a glorified upper-middle class town that really, really wants to be something its not.
Severna Park, maybe one day you will be Bethesda.

Small suburban town on the Severn River. South of Baltimore and a tad north of Maryland's capital Annapolis. It began as a just a trainstation stop on the Baltimore-Annapolis Railroad. Originally just a farm or two, the town really began in 1914 when Severn school was founded as a preparatory school for the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Much has changed since then. Severn School has become a private college preparatory school whose main attraction to many is simply the ability to tell people that they or his/her son/daughter attends/attended it. Though, of course, it is not all bad- the large majourity of the people are nice. But those who are not more than make up for the rest. The school is the reason for the stereotype that Severna Park is a snobbish town- many of its students are in fact commuters. Just down the street is the Severna Park High School- a more accurate sample of the average Parkie.

The present Severna Park features 11 majour residential communities, 3 majour roads, a coffee shop, 6 churches, a coffee shop, 5 gas stations, 5 schools, a coffee shop, a fine paved running trail from Annapolis to BWI, 3 banks, 2 liquor stores, and a coffee shop.

A great place to be, but actually NOT the home of the greatest community college in the nation. Anne Arundel Community College has 3 locations that I'm aware of, one in Arnold, one in Glen Burnie, and one in Hanover next to the Arundel Mills mall....
Man some people are really stupid to confuse Severna Park with Arnold. An SP resident would want to take credit for AACC... until they actually have to attend.

this is just in response to the person who stated that Anne Arundel Community College is in SP. I'm sorry friend but you obviously don't know your surrondings very well because the college is down College Parkway... in ARNOLD. Although everything was acurate about the Park, I just wanted to clear that up because well you make the rest of us parkies look stupid because you can't distinguish SP from Arnold.

ps. Severna Park is full of rich kids, great athletes, moms who drive SUVs and go tanning daily, great small businesses, skaters, druggies, dorks, and snobs. You name it we got it. But mostly we stand out with our popped collars, bmw's, and kids spending mommy and daddy's money. I'm not a fan, but I've lived here my whole life. Can't diss a place unless you've lived here, so all y'all from other schools have nothing to say, cuz you're not stuck here!!
get up, practice a sport, shower, pop that collar, and hop on your boat for a day of wakeboarding and tanning ... welcome to severna park life

A poor man's Laguna Beach. It's a pretty nice place to live; a nice family town on a really nice river. It's an all-white, preppy, conservative haven. Michael Jordan almost moved there. Pat Sajak does. The Bawltimer Ravens owner lives here and graduated from SPHS. That brings up the worst thing about SP - It's a suburb of Bawltimer.

So, unfortunately for the kids that grow up there, even though they think it's the hottest place ever, it's far, far from being the ultimate rich white la-la-land that they would have you believe. To say that it pales in comparison to Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach, Highland Park (Dallas), Greenwich, Westchester, etc. is a gross understatement.

But, hey, if you've been sentenced to life in Bawltimer, then Severna Park is the best place to be. Sorry, but Bawltimer County is WAY too Jewish. ;)
Hott pretty blonde girl from SP - "Like, I totally live in the kitschyest place in the world"

Me - "No way, I'm from Beverly Hills too"

Hott preppy blonde girl from SP - "Umm, no sorry, but I was like talking about Severna Park?"

Me - "Has anyone ever told you that you'd look absolutely amazing on camera?"

There are stuck-up assholes and bitches, althetic people, smart kids, etc. I live here and have never actually seen a "popped-collar". Not everyone plays lacrosse, nor does everyone call it lax. There are working moms and stay at home dads. Our educational system isn't half-bad, and we get decent scores on tests, though we also have slackers and idiots. Common stereotypes fit very few people, but the people who stand out the most are the stereotypical parkies. They happen to be the loudest, the proudest, and, based on observation, not the smartest.

Many of them live in a large neighborhood called Chartwell, though not all of them live there and not everyone who lives there has that attitude.

There are many places to go, and a common hangout for locals is the Annapolis Westfield Shoppingmall, where you can buy clothes and books, not to mention catch a new film.

MY advice is to not pay attention to what others say and get to know people here and not to judge them. Severna Park may be known for it's snobby jerks, but I'm sure there are plenty of people like that everywhere, or, at least, in other middle-to-upper class towns.
One Severna Park Student: "OH my god, all Alex ever talks about is lax, but it's okay because he's SO HOT."

Another SP Student:"... Like I was saying, the new Hetalia manga came out."

Yet another: "Cool! I finally figured out the geometry homework."
And one more: "There was homework?! Oh shit!"
