I guess I’ve never really considered what people from other countries think about the American high school experience.
But our lifestyles are on display for all to see around the world because of the number of American movies and TV shows we produce. And a lot of those have to do with the high school experience in the U.S.
So, naturally, folks from other countries are confused about some of the stuff that goes on in our schools and they have some questions.
Let’s see what they had to say.
1. Time for some chow.
I never thought of it like that…
why do american school lunches look like prison meals like i go to a shitty school and our lunches arent even that gross

2. It’s just the way it is!
And you can also have chocolate!
why do American school lunches always include a mini carton of milk?

3. They sure do!
Make sure it’s clean though…nothing worse than a dirty water fountain.
Do American schools really have those lil water fountains? I've never seen one in real life before they seem pretty cool

11. Climbin’ the rope in gym class.
