Is Your Trailer Park Showing?

How does your high school rate? Mine came in 563rd in the country.

WE'RE NUMBER 563! WE'RE NUMBER 563! WE'RE NUMBER 563!

I'm easily satisfied.

Hey I was 674! You beat me.

But it was the first in my city. I did notice the #1 was in Dallas, gifted and talented. Because all the regulars don't deserve a good edumication.

Mine didn't even make the list. I'm even more proud than I was when I got my GED at 18 and got the hell out of there.

my school ranks pretty damn high - if you're talk about school fees.

Don't get me started on private school fees

uh...that's like, SOOOO ethnocentric.

:P

Mine didn't make it either. I'm going to cry now *pout*

Mine didn't make the list....which doesn't surprise me in the least!

Unranked. Pretty much all the ranked Illinois schools were Chicago suburbs - those of us who grew up downstate are apparently lucky if we learn to put socks on before shoes.

I can almost understand part of that. I'll keep working on it. Thanks for all your help. :)"

Hehe don't mention it. =) I remember what it was like starting to learn a new language and how much I appreciated the generosity of my Japanese friends. Just didn't think that I'd ever be in a position to do the same thing for others =)

Mine didn't make the list for academic excellence, but it is up there for the most drug deals on school grounds. Ah, youth.

The fact an Alabama school ranked at all let alone #2 shows the rankings were obviously flawed. I didn't even know we HAD schools.

Avitable said...

#84.

Yeah, baby!

I didn't realize I was talking to trailer trash... my grandma told me not to talk to kids like you but then I didnt obey her then. And now that she gone and dead I don't have to do I?

Mine didn't even rank either (why am I not surprised)

Mine wasn't ranked, but I did see a bunch of schools that I beat in cross country and track meets. Our football team was able to kick some major ass, too.

Grant said...

Note to everybody - I've heard that a lot of schools which should have been included were left out because they didn't use the same testing standards or submit their scores.

As for those of you who are not lucky enough to reside in the US, I'm pretty sure your schools were ranked as well, you just failed to live up to our standard. Besides, sitting around in mud huts picking nits out of each other's hair doesn't really count as schooling, despite what the headprimate may tell you. I hate to break the news to you, but you're all clearly inferior to us. It's like how we win the baseball World Series every single time, despite the fact that all nations on this planet are invited to participate.

Even if mine did have the "right" test scores (they probably did), they would be so incredibly low because the major past time there was indeed "picking nits of of each others' hair".

Oh yeah...where's my banana?

Mine is 1027. I noticed there were a lot of schools from California.

I wonder if it's based on GPA or graduation rate or what.

We have two high schools in my town.

My high school is locally famous for NOT being the one that Pamela Anderson graduated from...
