Students post school for sale on Craigslist

High-school seniors take an unofficial, end-of-year tradition to an all new level of awesomeness.

Students at one Chesapeake, Va., high school scored extra credit for creativity with their senior prank. They put their school up for sale on Craigslist.

The ad, which was flagged nearly 12 hours after it was posted, read:

Hello we are selling Hickory High School to the highest bidder.  We are raising money to help all the graduating seniors.

Chesapeake School District officials told NewsChannel 3 they believe the ad is a senior prank.

“That’s by far the funniest thing I’ve ever heard of,” Henry Rogers, a Hickory High School senior, told NewsChannel 3.

Nicely played, seniors. Nicely played.

Wow how much more ignorant can kids get today. Maybe their senior prank or outrageous behaviors would be better off without all thier tech toys.


I am curious are there any HS grads out there who can function and think logically without their tech toys????


God Bless the 60's 70's and 80's we made it through and without tech yet under the influence of too much rock, fried brains and extra curricular things but we made it through went to college and found success all without tech toys!!!!!!!!


Now their extra curricular is made in basement and all are connected to tech toys-----do they have any true future that mom and dad have not padded for them-----only time will tell!!!!!!!!!!!

When I was a senior, we broke into the Principal's office, completely emptied it and reassembled his entire office in the middle of the gym.  He thought it was hysterical!  We all had to stay after school for the 30 minutes it took to put it all back.  Today we would have been arrested, jailed and denied our diploma just for picking the lock on his office.

Back in the 80s at this one school, they were supposed to have a really good football team, picked to go really far in the playoffs. Well, they didn't even make it to the first round. The football coach woke up to a yard full of real estate for sale signs. Classic!!!

Should have read "Wanted, a high school faculty that can instruct students in the necessary reading, writing, and math skills required to perform jobs after graduation."

Just a natural progression, everyone knows the White House was for sale when the Clinton's lived there.

And these "seniors" are an example of what can only be defined as "dumb"!  It will get much much worse with these absolute idiots graduating from high school and college.  They are "dumb"...do not give them "credit" for anything else.  Get out your computers...dumb and dumber.... and, watch out as your time is drawing nigh with your own stupidity.  Tired of this nonsense!  Get an A and bend over and grab your collective....as...

Just a step up from putting real estate signs in front of the school like we used to do.
