About This Quiz

Ah, high school. A time during which kids are becoming adults and people are coming into their own and really finding out who they are. But not everyone has a great high school experience, and movies and pop culture like to put everything into boxes. Movies like "Mean Girls" and other teen comedies separate students based on their interests and act like people with varying interests can't possibly be friends. They couldn't be more wrong. That's not to say that it doesn't happen, but in real life, friend groups are made up of all kinds of kids with all kinds of hobbies. 

Stereotypes are quite frowned upon these days, but sometimes you just can't help feeling like a stereotype. And honestly, you can own your stereotype, too. Do you love cheerleading and being peppy? Great! Rather be in the library? That's cool too! Just because you are put into a certain stereotype doesn't mean that's how you always have to live your life or have to limit yourself to that for the rest of your life. Either way you look at it, everyone knows that high school stereotypes are very real, even if not as limiting as movies would like you to believe.
