By Brian Prisco | Seriously Random Lists | September 22, 2009 | Comments ()


High school is a pivotal time in a young person's life, when lifelong friendships are forged, extracurricular activities are savored, and people constantly and painfully die. Many of us never had the opportunity to choose the dispenser of our diplomas, but had we the chance, these fine institutions would more than likely have been our first choices. Those of you raising children and/or foreign orphans may want to consider relocating immediately to obtain the best for your offspring. We offer these twelve fine suggestions, at least until Hogwarts opens its American location.
