Top 10 Most Overused Highschool Stereotypes

Highschool has a lot of overused stereotypes. I don't agree with any of these stereotypes but they are fairly common. I'm only pointing these stereotypes out and I'm not agreeing with them.

The Top Ten

1 Kids don't intentionally care or want to pass classes

True about me. I do the work anyway. - Ihateschool

So overused by teachers that it's downright cliche.

2 All Math is pointless

Not all but Geometry is. - Ihateschool

Basically, math is essential for all engineering related jobs. And yes, a lot of people want to be in the engineering field. - Kwaysar

Some if it is some of it isn't.

3 All highschools have drug dealers

I never had drugs in my life - Ihateschool

American Beauty probably told you that.

Again highschools can vary.

4 Special ED kids aren't educated

I'm in special ed and I am educated - Ihateschool

That's kind of true because when I was in high school I had a special ed teacher that repeated stuff that is totally obvious to us over and over again like "you must use your manners", how to tell time and count coins, and tell your parents to not drink and drive. I also visited other special ed classrooms and they have worksheets that teach them how to write in cursive and to memorize their personal information such as their names and addresses. SPECIAL ED IS TOTALLY POINTLESS!

So overused... I don't know where to begin.

5 All kids are ungrateful and agressive

Like teachers it varies on the kid.

6 Books are useless

Some are but others aren't. I don't think my favorite series Diary Of A Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries are poin tless since I like those series. - Ihateschool

"Books are useless! " -Schmitty

7 Being a nerd is a bad thing

Realisticly it isn't and generally isn't that terrible.

8 Every teacher is a mean cruel bastard

Most special ed teachers are evil, in my opinion

Some are, some aren't varies on the teacher.

9 All popular girls and cheerleaders are sluts

One of the more common stereotypes.

10 Fights happen daily

There was a fight in my college once and I witnessed it.

They did at my school when I was in 9th grade. I'm in 12th grade so it doesn't happen daily. - Ilovestephanie

The Contenders

11 All jocks are aggresive pricks

I hate this trope, and love parodying it too. - Swellow

Not all of them but some can be.

12 All popular chicks are divas
13 The popular girl who bullies the main character
14 Every school has a bad-boy/player
15 Band kids are nerds
16 Cheerleaders and football players always date
