High-School Pranks
High-school seniors superglue the locks on their teachers' doors. The teachers are not amused. In other senior prank news, piglets are released in a school the day of the senior barbeque.

simply an expansion on the periodic alarms prank...
take dozens of cheap like 1 dollar watches that have daily alarms on them
set them all for like a couple minutes apart...
no alarm for the same time, that way they will go off randomly throughout the day...
then lift up the cieling tiles and place them throughout the school...
drives people nuts, i know, ive done it at a bookstore.

Hey: One great one someone from my school pulled was glueing shoes to all the walls, ceilings etc over night on the weekend. The best part is that they used industrial strenght glue. As far as i know, those shoes are still there. The prankster never was caught. XD Oh, and this was one of the strictest schools, too. I have NEVER seen teachers more angry, or, in some special cases, amused.

The key to staying out of trouble is to be Disruptive not Destructive. Heres an example: freshman year a couple friends who could all keep their moutsh shut got ski masks and a couple Kryptonite bike locks, we closed the doors on one of the hallways with like 5 minutes left in class and locked them shut with the locks. Now krptonite locks arent everyday locks they are fucking impossbile to cut they had to go out and buy the lock just to free the kids in the hallway, we didnt get caught and it was all in good fun.

i got an alright idea... if your school has an enclosed off area at night time.. buy like 50 chicken or something.. throw them in the enclosed off area with some chicken feed and a couple of roosters, hopefully by the time it hits school there will be shit loads of feathers and a couple of dead chickens or whatever.. haha i dunno it seems ok, but not really, ghhh ghh!

here at my school, things are done a little differently then what i think they should be done. i just moved here from a bigger school, so its all still kind of new to me. here, the juniors tend to do more pranks then the seniors. so, i came up with a good prank, that does need some money and some help. my plan is to take a digital picture of the school, blowing it up at a local picture shop, and then posting it on a billboard, saying "for sale, for info. please call...(the school phone number)" and then taking a bunch of for sale signs, and then putting them al over the front yard of the school (its located on a hwy), facing the highway. the only problem i have with this, and i have to find out is, how much would it cost to rent out a billboard, and if you could stay anonymous, too. me and some friends have already agreed to carrying it out, but we just cant find out the costs. does anyone have any past experience with billboards? lol. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recently at my school the Student resource officer and her power hungry rent-a-cop tag-a-long have taken it too far. I have declared war...They are now issuing loitering tickets, and soon jaywalking tickets to the people that hang out and smoke across the street from the school, in addition to smoking tickets. They hide in the bushes and pop out, they watch with binoculars from the library. They search our bags. I know they technically have the right to search our property, but that doesn't make it okay. We are all pissed!! One idea I had was, if and when they start living up to their threats of issuing jaywalking tickets, we will come in the middle of the night and make our own crosswalk. I know thats not much...I need more ideas. But just yesterday one of my best friends (along with a bunch of my other friends) was given a hundred and fifty dollar loitering ticket...for play hackey sack!! In fact, he wasn't even playing anymore, he was walking to his car. We need to show them what happens when they take it too far. We've had enough!!!

if your school has bake sales, where they sell baked goods to the whole school at lunch hour for like 50cents, donate something that looks good an dppl will but but put exlax in whatever you made. Now most of the time you can submit the bake good anonymously or you can put a fake name. This way you wont get caught and ppl will be shitting themselves.

About two years ago wehn i was in 6th grade (i was in a diff skewl....William Floyd middle skewl ) me and about 4 of my really good friends had this kewl ass teacher he was really young and was always doing something funny and the teacher next door was old but also really funny well to make a long story short we switched the class rooms so that they would b in the oppisite class rooms (with the walls that opened made it way easyer for us)
the teachers laughed about and there still going on telling there students (by the way we were the first to do a prank in that skewl to)


okay so now heres what i wanna do to all in one day to leave my mark in paca for the year 06' 07....

Basicly my idea is to do most of the things ppl did on high skewls scadles pranks and contraversys... (yeah i cnt spell haha)

1. switch my teacher mr. mis and ms. brandis's class rooms (its a classic i gotta do it)

2. put bouncy balls all threw out the skewl

3. put cups of watter filling the hall main hallway

4. fork the propertey

5. clog all the toilits in the skewl

6. and my friend sed she got a huge list of things that were ganna do but were only ganna do ones that we think are the best and we will be able to do all in one night and one skewl day...


well thats its so yeah i totally own William Floyd paca middle skewl AND William Floyd middle skewl haha cheaa baby !!!

all of those pranks are fine, but you should have seen the prank my middle school held. it was hilarious. at my school we are known for our spirit days. one day, we had a white-out spirit day. well, other kids got to thinking and they decided that they would rather have a black-out day. the whole middle school came in -except for me and a few other kids -wearing black. the teachers and principal were so angry and pink in the face all day.

when i was a freshman in high school (im a junior now) some friends of mine, 8 of them, all decided to do a prank on a MAJOR rival school. the night before we had a football game against them at their school, they al went to walmart and bought a lot of spray paint and plastic sporks. they then spent the next 4 hours drawiing a perfect raider head (our school mascot was raiders, theres are knights). it was awesome. i will however say, that they did get caught. they got caught because they paid for the stuff witha debit card, and they threw the bag away at a trash can there, which contained he receipt. thats the only reason they got caught. and later that same school year, after we had moved to a different town, another friend of mine had put super glue in all of the school locks on all the doors outside of the school. the only reason he got caught was because he told other people that he did it. i got a prank thats going to put my school on the 10 o'cock news, but im not going to say it until its been done. lol. got any good ideas or need some, just email me. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

A BAG OF ICE IS ABOUT $1.00. (YOU WILL NEED ABOUT 100 BAGS- 10 PEOPLE - $10 EACH - 5 ONE GALLON BOTTLES OF WATER -1 TRUCK AND ABOUT 30 MINS.)ADVICE, DRIVE TO THE NEXT TOWN TO BUY ICE) LOAD A PICK UP TRUCK WITH BAGS OF ICE. (BREAK ON GROUND TO LOOSEN ICE BEFORE LOADING IT) EARLY MORNING 4AM- 5AM WORKS BEST. WINTER WEATHER A MUST. POUR OUT BAGS ALL AROUND AND UNDER A CAR, KEEP PILING TILL YOU RUN OUT OF ICE. POUR SEVERAL BOTTLES OF WATER SLOWLY OVER THE ICE. TAKE PICTURES!! THE DRIVER WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GO ANYWHERE FOR HOURS....OR DAYS IF IT'S COLD ENOUGH!!! WE CALL IT "ICEBURG-ING" IN ALABAMA! IT WORKS WELL AT ALL THE ENTRANCE TO THE SCHOOL TOO!!

Hello!

I really would like a few ideas on a good senior prank. I was thinking maybe digging a 4 or 5 foot hole in the football field and putting a farm animal in there or getting the local police to come and "pretend" arrest our principal. Something like that we will never forget. I like some of the ideas that everyone put on here...but they mostly deal with pigs. ha. Neways email me if anyone has a great SR prank!!

ok for all the badasses saying that you dont know what pranks are... those were obviously just pranks you wont get in trouble for... now if we are talking serious pranks then you dont even know so stfu... we had a kid a few years back who brought dry ice bombs to school and planted like 8 of them throughout the school
. as they went off. we were in a lockdown for about 6 hours. the department of homeland security and FBI were there... try to top that.
