Go Back to School
Nobody ever forgets their high school years. The loads of homework you were assigned each day. The nasty food in the cafeteria you had to eat. The silly sport rivalries everyone had to partake in. The annoying cliques that teased and bullied anyone they could. If your time in high school is or was bitter like that, then High School Story will give you a chance to show the world how a school should really be run.
You’ll make a school of your own, building by building and student by student. Populate it with all of your friends, make some new ones as you host activities on the school grounds, and show the folks over at Hearst High that your school is the best one in town. With luck, your school will be the happening place teenagers will want to attend.
