High school is full of drama. And it's hardly surprising if you consider the amount of teen hormones all packed up in a closed environment. But sometimes, even people who are supposed to calm the situation down and take care of the kids contribute to that drama.
And where is drama, scandals will follow. And they make a big bang because schools are not places often associated with scandals. But that doesn't mean there aren't any….
People on Twitter share the biggest scandals that ever shook their former high schools, and the stories are amazing. We have selected some of the best, and we know you will find them interesting.
It’s OK to molest kids who aren’t that rich?
My HS band director slept with students. When the school found out, they quietly passed him off to a less-wealthy nearby school district instead of reporting him, where he continued abusing.— Ryan Thompson (@BardicKnowledge) May 25, 2020
My rich school didn't want the bad press that came with public action against him.
What do they teach kids there?
A fellow student used AOL Chatrooms to gather credit card information from unsuspecting users by pretending to be AOL Services. Bought thousands of dollars worth of electronics.— Ryan (@Murraypalooza) May 25, 2020
Good ol' Oxford, Pa 🙄
And no one ratted...
Jr. year, ACTs were stolen!!!! Everyone had to retake the test - and everyone *knew* who it was, but nobody ratted. Incredible.— megs ✨ (@itsmegkehoe) May 25, 2020
Are they happily married now?
Junior high, but: the school resource officer was calling in bomb threats, so he could act heroic in front of the one of the front office ladies he had a crush on.— Bryan Cox (@valleyofthebees) May 25, 2020
Sorry for the girls.
These two cheerleaders were murdered at a lookout on the south side of my hometown. The town was shocked and held all these tributes. Later they caught the guy and it turns out they owed like 5-10 grand to a Russian cocaine dealer.— Christopher Gorbos (@ChrisGorbos) May 25, 2020
Hopefully, he will be in jail for a long time.
I don’t know about the biggest, but an English teacher from the Jr. High School got a blowjob in his car from a gal from my high school that I knew from the AV Club who found out she had cancer the day after the story broke. Ps He went to jail!— Michelle Kinney 🏴☠️ (@MichelleKinney) May 25, 2020
Yeah, college material...
4 football players, one of whom had offers from 30+ colleges, robbed a Smoothie King with a kid who worked there https://t.co/iQq7Go7Qkc— Owen Knight (@TulaneOwen) May 25, 2020
For a senior prank, a group of kids in my grade moved a life-size statue of Abraham Lincoln across the school and into the auditorium. They tried lowering the statue from the second floor to the first by tying a rope around its neck. When they did, poor Abe’s head popped off.

Someone had a big grudge…
Someone broke into the history teacher’s apartment, shit in her closet, cut up some of her clothes and tore photos of her family in half. The cops said “So, this looks personal.”— Lakshmi Sundaram (@IamLuksh) May 25, 2020
Was the tour so bad?
Visiting award-winning novelist committed suicide in a pretty gruesome fashion days after leaving the school and it was in People Magazine and I was his tour guide.— evafay (@evafay) May 25, 2020
Just like a movie.
