High School, like pretty much everything else in life, seems so much better in the movies. Access to better clothes, make-up and impossibly attractive actors takes the average schooling experience and ramps it up to ten and, unless you’re a movie star already, there’s no point in comparing it with your own. More often than not, however, High School films get it right and if you’re in need of a life lesson or two, there’s no better place to look than the movies.

Never Eat The Coleslaw
Rule number one: Cafeteria food is not to be trusted. The coleslaw might seem like the perfect side dish to your lunch but unless you were personally involved in its preparation, don’t even think about getting involved. Only bad things come from eating the coleslaw
If You’re Blonde, You’re Popular
Need I continue? Pretty much across the board, the High School hottie is blonde. There’s just something about the fairer hair which makes you instantly attractive to others. Call it physics, call it what you want; there’s no denying it.
Don’t Punch Above Your Weight
If you’re a geek, or a musician or a loner, stick to your place. When people try and punch above their weight, only bad things tend to happen. High School has an unspoken ranking system in place and whilst it might seem cruel, it’s there for a reason.
Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover
At the same time, don’t assume that you know who someone is just by their clique. People will surprise you with hidden talents and if you’re in movie land, it’s more than likely you will discover them.
Fashion Is Everything
Fashion in the real world and fashion in High School are two completely separate entities. If the popular girls in your school start wearing something you’ve never seen before, you’d better believe that it’s about to spread like wild fire.
Bad Guys Always Get Their Comeuppance
That bad guy (or gal) that’s throwing their weight around at the beginning of the film is such a pain. Never fear, there is always something waiting for them down the line to put them back in place. If you become too controlling, High School has ways of sorting it out.
Everything Happens At the Dance
Got into an argument with your boyfriend? Sort it at the dance. Have a bone to pick with the bully. Meet them at the dance. Involved in a fledgling relationship? The dance. Everything that’s anything happens at “the dance” and if you’re not there, you’re not anyone.
Identity Is A Fluid Thing
Take the glasses off a geek and you’re left with a beautiful, shiny person. Remove that head brace and you’ve got yourself a regulation hottie. You might be defined by your clique, but it is easier than anywhere else to change who you are. Just get a makeover.
