Well, I just graduated HS last June, but I thought I should describe my lovely high school for a little bit.
-rolls eyes- Yes, I was being sarcastic.
My high school is one of those 'ghetto' schools one would describe. We have gang members and everything. You'll basically see all the bad-arses there. Our bathrooms were always disgusting--worse than porter potties--the classrooms has mice that come out in the night.. yeah. It was horrible. The J-hall bathroom was locked down after my freshman year because some girls apparently don't know how to properly dispose used pads. It was... disgusting. But that's not even all of it.
We've had couple of lockdowns too. My freshman year, one girl died from a car crash while going to out Winterball drunk. Then, my sophomore year, we had one of the lockdowns because 2 students had knives and one got stabbed in A-hall. My junior year, some kids lighted our Boys Bathroom in C-hall. (Good thing our fire department is literally across the street, or else...) And finally, my senior year, we had another lockdown because there had been little 'bombs' going off in the trash cans around the campus. Yeah, pretty bad already, but that still isn't the worst of it. Just some of the highlights, I guess.
Our HS also banned students from wearing the color red on the campus. There are 2 big gangs at school, and before my freshman year, one girl was shot because she was spotted wearing red in the parking lot, hence where the rule came from. EVERY WEEK, there's ALWAYS a fight, ranging from 2 girls or guys to over 100 people coming from 2 different gang groups. They've been on TV already, and yeah. I'm just glad I'm out of there already. Phew.
Oh. And this just came to me-- we had an assembly honoring Cinco De Mayo on the day of my birthday (it was May 13, 2005) and well, let's just say that the assembly didn't go so well. People literally started throwing glass bottles all over the place and about 10 people were badly injured. -sigh- Yeah.
And you thought your HS was bad. HAHA. I had to live through that for 4 long, agonizing years.
