About This Quiz

Whether high school was one of the best times of your life, a necessary awkward phase or one of the most terrifying experiences you've ever had, there's one thing that you'll agree with us about: it was extremely memorable! While certain things about high school will always stay the same, such as first love, bullies and homework, other aspects of high school have radically changed over the years.

Today, students email teachers their essays rather than typing or writing them, and current classroom safety standards would seem ludicrous to 1950s parents. Kendrick Lamar is the new Elvis, and nobody cool would ever drive a Plymouth Road Runner.

But we want to know what defined your high school experience. What did your classmates wear, who was cool or uncool, how did teachers punish you and what salty treats did you like to snack on? Details like these may seem unimportant, but in fact, will help our trusty quiz supercomputer to determine precisely which decade it was when you put on that black cap and gown. Are you ready to relive some of the most fun and most embarrassing years of your life? Flip through your high school yearbook, then take this quiz!
