Central High School

situated where once stood the territorial capitol of Nebraskashire, listed among the oldest schools in the region, housed within a building mistakable as a legitimate example of Beaux-Artes and plagued by adolescent drug-use and pregnancies kept secret, Omaha's Central High School boasts all the qualities of an elite preparatory academy.

yet so insufferable do I find the manner of its students and alumni; they exaggerate its status--forgetting that the high school is a public institution and that not every graduate wins a Nobel Prize.
