High School Standards

A lot of times bullying happens in high school based on appearance. Looks are such a big deal because in high school your body is changing, your hormones are raging out of control, people are dating, etc, but people tend to take things too far. The standards that student makes in high school can come from stereotypes and upbringings which makes up the social dynamics of peers. There are always these cliches such as the jocks, geeks, popular girl, smart girl, bitches/mean girls, etc. It's like as soon as you enter school you are categorize. That's when the bullying comes in. You pretty much have to look a certain way to get accepted or else you get picked on. You either have to be pretty or have a strong personality and if you have both it is an advantage. Of course every school has a different level of pretty because certain prettys isn't enough. It's ashame that people are not given chances to prove themselves to the world the spark that they have within themselves.
