Many things can factor into this decision. Whether it be, where it is located, how many people go there, or simply how small it is. There are many things that can sway you to think your high school is a “small town high school.” So, to help you make a decision, I have put together a quiz! Be sure to answer truthfully to get the mostly correct answer.
Where is your high school located?
In a city
Right next to a field of cows
Near some fields but also not too far from a bigger city
How many kids go to your school?
800 - 1000
350 - 600
600 - 700
How many people do you know in your school?
Only like 4
Mostly all of them
Is there ever more than 10 big trucks in the parking lot?
Rarely, if ever
ALL. THE. TIME.
Sometimes, but not more than 10
Are your high school athletics all anyone comes to?
Oh yes! Athletics are like the Super Bowl here
Depends on the sport really
How many dirt roads do you travel on to get to the school?
My high school is almost on a dirt road, what you mean?
Maybe like 5
Does absolutely everyone know your business?
No No No, I keep my stuff private
YES, I can’t even fart without the whole school knowing

Does anyone know what the town your high school is located in, outside of the town?
Sometimes if I explain in detail

No! I change friends like underwear
Yea, pretty much
A couple, but some are new

No, I sit somewhere new every day
YES! You better not sit in my seat
Yes, but sometimes we sit different places
If you had siblings that went to your high school, did your teachers remember them?
No, they can barely remember my name
Yes, in fact they call me by their name all the time
Depends on which teacher it is

Yes, all the time

There's things called tractors?
Sometimes depending on the road I took
Does everyone know most of your embarrassing stories?
No. heck no

Yes, someone coughs in one hallway and everyone is now infected
Sometimes but usually not
Are you friends with people below you and above you in grades?
No? We are always separated

Some of them

Only like 6 people
Almost all of them
I’d say usually

Some of us

No there’s like 5
Eh, usually 3
Do you almost always see someone you know at the store?
No not at all
Yes, every single time
If you got mostly A’s, your high school is nowhere near small. In fact it's enormous compared to many other high schools. But don’t worry, I am sure there is many things great about your school no matter how big it is. It is just the fact that it is not a small town high school. So, as I said before, your school is not a small town high school at all.
If you got mostly B’s, YOU ARE DEFINITELY in a small town high school. From the farm full of cows right next door to everyone knowing everyone, you’re high school fits the picture completely. You may think now that nothing could be worse than your high school, but trust me you’ll miss it when it’s gone. Never give that small town vibe up, because in the end it is what makes you who you are.
If you got mostly C’s, you are so 50/50. So basically you are a medium size high school, with both characteristics of giant and small high schools. That is the best way to be, because you can kiss someone and no one will know who you kissed except like 5 people. All of your secrets are safe with the friends you surround yourself with.
All in all, any size high school is what shapes you in to the person you become in the future. Your friends you meet in high school with stick with you till the end. After all, high school could be some of the best years of your life, if you live them how you want.
