Media Portrayal Of High School

Decent Essays
The media a lot of the times seems to portray high school as something completely far off from the truth. High school students are usually portrayed as immature and irresponsible people who are filled with raging hormones, who are either overly sexual or stoners. On the same note, high school is often portrayed the way we see on television shows or movies, think of Mean Girls, an environment where there are distinct cliques that revolve around drama and gossip. Although this may be true to the smallest extent, as a high school teenager, a can state from my own experience that the media does not do a good job in portraying what high school is really like today.
