Being in high school is about a lot more than "going" to high school. It's about discovering new places, new hobbies, and new people--and opening your eyes to the world.

Spend a day in silence? Learn how to make beats like a DJ? Or shut down your house party before the police do? Whatever your creative, social, or academic inclinations, you'll find 97 ways on these pages to amuse, educate, and interest yourself, and your friends. Because your life doesn't stop at 3pm each day--it just gets started.
