High schools all around the nation are struggling
with the problem of students experimenting with
drugs and alcohol. This problem is even evident
at such a prestigious school like this one.
Many people would find this shocking due to the

impossible to fall into drugs.
If girls are not really your thing, or you are embarrassingly incompetent, just stay home and play with
your new cat.
