"The seniors had our principal arrested with the help of our school security, and we recorded it all."

2. "We reshaped the shrubs spelling 'BEARS' into 'PENIS.'"

"We went to a tiny school that had a room with couches and things that you had to go through before you got to the classrooms. We got there early, stacked up all the furniture to make a barricade to block the entrance, held French flags, and played the Les Mis soundtrack whenever someone tried to get past us."



4. "We covered the hallway in cups of water so no one could walk."

"Our school always held its staff meetings in the library at the same time each week, so all the seniors brought in alarm clocks, hid them throughout the library, and set them to go off at about 2-minute intervals. The entire meeting was derailed because by the time they'd found one, the next one was going off."

6. "The senior class posted fake penis inspection flyers around the school."

"We posted these fake flyers around school. The teachers and principal were very angry, and the freshman were scared that it was real."

17. "Some guys set up a (root) beer pong table on the quad."

"I went to a Catholic high school, so the rules were pretty strict. Two guys from my class went to the quad and set up a root beer pong table and started playing. Well, within minutes, most of the faculty was all over them and shutting it down. It turns out it was a diversion for an epic food fight in the cafeteria!"


18. "We turned the parking lot into a beach!"

Rachel K.

21. "We filled the teachers' lounge to the ceiling with balloons."

"When I graduated high school, we got the keys to the teachers lounge from one of the cool secretaries and, since the room was about the size of a college dorm, we filled it to the top with balloons. We then left a poster that said 'Enjoy' with safety pins taped to it."


22. "The seniors turned the hallway into a slip-n-slide."



24. "We brought the outside in."

"We had AstroTurf lining our entire hallway. We set up huge tree branches and plants throughout the hall, and we had working fountains. We blasted music, and we set up umbrellas and beach chairs. None of us went to class all day; we just enjoyed ourselves with kiddie pools and a volleyball/badminton net."


26. "They built a jungle gym and put it in the middle of the lunchroom."
