I also started reading Speak (Laurie Halse Anderson), which has led me to wonder about people's high school experiences. My school didn't have hall passes and we were allowed to wander all over during lunch hour (whereas the narrator in Speak gets in trouble for leaving the cafeteria). Also, we did not have cheerleaders. I'm curious how this compares to everyone else. If you have anything to add that I haven't covered, feel free to comment!
In your first week of high school, how hard was it to find your way around?
What were the hall rules at your school?
What were the lunch rules?
What happened if you were late?
Did your school have cheerleaders?
How clique-y was your school?
