A High School Musical Experience

Michelle Mirza, Editorials/Two Cents & That's Rad Editor

Walking through the halls of Keller High, various types of people can be observed. From the obnoxious couples who make it their mission to display all kinds of borderline inappropriate affection for the public, to the way-too-chatty Kathys, and the barricade of freshmen ‘bfffffls’, it is only inevitable to want to backpack it to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the start of something new. However, since it isn’t exactly socially acceptable to drop out of high school to pursue your dream of attending a fictional high school in the middle of the desert where everyone can sing perfectly in key, I have compiled a list of songs to get you through the hallways of each year in high school – a high school musical experience, if you will.
