About This Quiz

Oh, high school, that sweet, sweet era of sky-high social, academic and extracurricular expectations!

No one made it out of high school totally unscathed, but we managed to make it out (at all) in large part due to our friend groups! Our cliques defined us and helped make those four years a lot more tolerable.

While there was some clique crossover (who can forget the jock who tried out for the spring musical?) most people stayed in their metaphorical lanes. The Academic Decathalon team studied together, ate lunch together and went to prom together, while the artsy students hung out in the ceramics studio at lunch. Certainly the band kids and theater kids interacted (hello, rehearsal!) but you rarely saw an emo kid among them.

Our cliques and stereotypes helped define how we saw ourselves. If you were known to get straight As, you likely felt obligated to keep getting straight As. 

College, and then real life, eliminated a lot of the roles we played in high school, but we knew the stereotypes we once embodied haven't left us completely! Take this quiz to see if we can guess exactly which role you played in those good old days!
