Student, Southern Wells Jr./ Sr. High School, Class of 2016,
How do you fit in at Southern Wells High School? Well there is no real way of fitting in. How you dress is a big thing. Not very many people at Southern Wells actually dress dress up. A lot of people do look nice but they don’t dress too fancy like some other schools do. There is no uniform that we have to wear but there is a dress code. A lot of people around here where boots or tennis shoes and jeans. Southern Wells is known as a farming school and we are called hicks a lot, so don’t be offended if you are called a hick on twitter. At Southern Wells proper English is not really a thing. Yes, we go to English class and learn things, but we don’t use the mechanics we learn, in the right way. Walking around the hall you will hear a lot about everyone, that’s what happens when you go to a small school. Also don’t be shocked when you first walk in and only see one hallway and it’s round. Things at Southern Wells spread like wildfire. Everyone knows everyone at Southern Wells. All of the teachers know what kids are kids that try their hardest and what kids don’t care about being at school. Cliques are a big part of Southern Wells. You have the jocks, nerds, FFA kids, emo, wanna be’s, and several other groups. Most people are titled to more than one clique. All of the groups though wear backpacks. Make sure that you don’t one strap the backpack. Also if you really want to fit in take general classes not so much advanced classes, because then you will stick out like a sore thumb. Lastly don’t try to get into a group at first. Let the group choose you.
