Senior Pranks 2006
Status: Mischief
Most high schools are now out for the summer, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to pause and remember some of the senior pranks that made headlines this year. As usual, they're a mix of the clever, stupid, rude, and cruel.

Car on roof - image Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School: School officials found a Honda Accord "painted neon pink and covered with green question marks" on the roof of the high school. "Nassau police and school officials said yesterday that dozens of students used crudely made ramps to drag the Honda Accord... onto the roof."

Power out - Neuqua Valley High School: Two students were arrested for attempting what they called the "senior prank of all senior pranks." Their plan was to disable a generator and take "other steps to ensure the power would go out and classes would be canceled for younger students still in school." They were caught in the act by a custodian and arrested at their homes.

School for sale - Cape Fear Academy: "During the night before their last day of school Friday, about 20 members of the senior class strung a $215, 3-foot-by-9-foot vinyl sign with large, red letters spelling out "Entire School For Sale" and the school's telephone number between two posts in front of the school yard on South College Road. Another 20 or so smaller "For Sale" signs were peppered around the grounds."

Squealing pig - Severna Park High School: Students "released a squealing 31-pound piglet named Hamilton into the halls on the sinister date of 6/6/06 ... Purloined from a county park for an end-of-year stunt, the 3-month-old pig -- nickname: Hammy -- appeared Tuesday morning in the math wing of the Annapolis area school between the first and second class periods. Administrators cornered the frightened animal near an exit, where he submitted to capture as students recorded the moment on their cellphone cameras. 'There was this crowd of people who were, like, 'Omigod, there's a pig,' ' said Sarah Wade, a junior."

Marijuana muffins - Lake Highlands High School: A friend of a student delivered marijuana-spiked muffins to the teachers lounge. "He brought bran muffins to suburban Lake Highlands High School on May 16, saying they were part of an Eagle Scout project. When school employees ate the muffins, they began complaining of nausea, lightheadedness and headaches, and were briefly hospitalized. "They were just thinking it would be fun to get these teachers all silly and giggly," said Rita Greenfield, an 86-year-old receptionist at the school who spent two days in the hospital after eating the muffins.

Cruelty to animals - Ponderosa High School: "The local news broadcasters used words like 'horrified,' 'abusive behavior' and 'unbelievable act of cruelty' to describe the so-called senior prank at an area high school that involved someone dropping 45 baby chicks from a second-floor balcony, resulting in the deaths of seven of the chicks.... Four years ago in the county, a student at Highlands Ranch High School threw a rabbit across the gymnasium at a pep rally, breaking its legs and paralyzing it. The rabbit was later destroyed." (Good grief! PETA needs to open a chapter in that county.)

Doors glued shut - Independence High School (San Jose): "Right in the middle of finals week, an entire high school campus was virtually shut down Tuesday morning, after somebody glued classroom doors shut... The pranksters used super glue, as well as toothpicks in the locks. The numbers "06" were also painted on school buildings... As exams were delayed and students and teachers milled about this morning, maintenance crews used blow-torches to melt the glue that was squirted onto classroom locks."

Personalized underwear - East Aurora High (suburban Chicago): Several seniors were banned from attending graduation "as punishment for participating in an end-of-the-year prank last week that involved spray painting school property, stealing a statue of the Tomcat mascot and hanging underwear adorned with printout photos of administrators' faces in front of the building.... The damages have cost the district $1,700,"

Baby oil on floor - Omaha Burke High School: Students spread baby oil on the school's floors, resulting in injury for one teacher. "The principal of Omaha Burke High School underwent knee surgery Tuesday for an injury she suffered when she slipped on baby oil spread by vandals on the school's floors... Officers had caught five 18-year-olds inside the school, where 20 locker doors had a glue-type substance put in their locks and where the floors and stairs were coated with baby oil.

Flat tires - Jefferson High School (New Jersey): "a high school prankster deflated the front tires of 24 school buses parked at a Weldon Road compound Tuesday, but district officials weren't laughing as they were forced to cancel classes for more than 3,600 students... In addition to the tire damage, the vandals left behind another clue: The numbers "06" spray-painted on one of the buses."

Alcohol allowed - Daniel Hand High School: "Parents of high school seniors received a letter from Daniel Hand High School, with official letter head, concerning the upcoming prom. Included,a policy about drinking that it was allowed!... Principal Barbara Britton acted immediately to get the word out that this letter was not authentic posting a message on the school's website saying: "Let me assure you that underage drinking and the serving of alcoholic beverages is not permissible at the senior prom or any sponsored school event."

So last year at Holt High school, the seniors thought that it would be funny if all of a sudden the animals on Edrus ( Skate arenia) were to come up missing. Well the night before someone stole a Monkey and a Zebra off the roof and put them on the West Side of the school. The next Morning when school started everyone who came in on the west side saw the Prank. The Teachers thought that was funny and wondered how they got them and how they got them on the roof in the first place without getting caught. They people who stole them brought them back to Edrus.

Me and the senior class made shirts that said Senior Prank 07, foyer at 10 AM BE THERE and everybody wore these shirts on the day And then we waited outside of the foyer until 10 when all of the hall monitors, security guards, and administrators showed up to stop what we were doing, until we showed up with a sign that said you fell for it. It was great, and everyone laughed pretty hard after wards.

All you have to do is take the little rollie things out of the computer mouses!! It's great!! None of the computer classes could do any work and Seniors couldn't do their term papers!! HAHA It was hilarious!

at my school a long long time ago, (my teacher told me of this) there was a big blizzard and tons of snow, so they made HUGE snowballs, like 6 feet high each (took like 10 ppl to push them) and they would push one in front of the teachers car and one behind it. then the teacher went out and relized they couldnt get out..it was absolutely hilarious......!!

Some friends of mine just pulled off a senior prank, They put the lunch chairs and tables used by the faculty on the roof of the school. It was funny except for one small detail. They got caught!!! I highly suggest to all of you that if your going to commit a prank don't break into the school and make sure that you are under the age of 18. If your 18 or older the school is likely to press major charges aginst you. My six friends all got kicked out of school and possibly will not graduate. One of them even has felony charges aginst him and could see jail time. If your gonna pull off a prank make sure its worth not walking across that stage and/or going to jail.

Well, we at Lutheran High School recently discussed senior pranks and came up with a few ideas: set tires over the flag pole so that they are stuck there, chain the doors to the school shut, (for this we have a large window on wednesdays when our teachers have a meeting) we could unhinge all the classroom doors in the school.

The best Senior prank was the year before me when they sent a letter home to all the students, useing the school letterhead and everything, that said condoms were going to be handed out at prom sighting a bill number sr2006 and a bunch of parents actually bought it. The best part was our principal thought it was funny but she got a lot of crap from parents and her bosses. They never caught the kids either.

My class is going to make a sock puppet movie that makes fun of all of the teachers and then switch it with the school announcement tape at second hour.

My English teacher told me two great pranks, and they're harmless.

1. Take all the chairs in the school, and put them in the bathrooms. This does two things:
a) No one has a chair to sit in.
b) Bathrooms can't be accessed.

2. Take a freshmen, strip them to their boxers, and paint them in school colors. Then, before school starts, chain them across the entrance that the buses use. The buses won't be able to enter the school!

If u go to a chrisian school and take communion u can spike the wine with evercleer and tell all the seniors to cross their arms so that they don't have to do it and at the end the father will have to drink all of what's left over, because its a rule. Hammered Preachers!!! yea

I thought of a Sr. prank just today but when i saw it might cost the school $1.5k and I decided against it. Feel free to use it though as long as you give me credit smile This takes awhile to do it right though. Actually it takes about 3 years. Anyway what you need is 14 ppl a school elevator and those little cups they give you for water at lunch. So what you do is get all fourteen of your friends to take three of those cups every day and collect them somewhere and after three (school) years you should have collected 22680 cups what you do after that is get the elevator key and find a way to get all 22680 cups in the elevator (if your school has cameras like mine does this might be hard) then post a sign so everyone will believe you did it (and your class year) and wait the next day for some poor cripple to open the elevator.

And before you do this plz look at the cost of plastic cups its actually a surprisingly large sum.

A few years ago, the seniors at my highschool released two chickens in the forum and pained a 1 and a 3 on them. the administration found the two chickens, but never found the #2 chicken that never existed.

I thought of a pretty good senior prank for my graduating class. On our main street we have a chinese buffet place that of course sells sushi. Take as much sushi as you can and stuff them in purses or backpacks or whatever over a certain amount of time to collect a shit ton of them. Then get a couple of buddies to go around in the bathrooms and put them in the paper towel dispensers and in the bottom of trash cans or someplace hidden and see how bad the smell will get over the summer!!!!!!!

The best by far senior prank i have seen is when 3 seniors let loose 3 pigs numbered 1, 2 and 4. The staff spent weeks trying to find pig number 3

Me and my friends are going to school late at night to hoist up a personalized flag in our honor. We will try to rig it so that it cannot be taken down without climbing up there, or on the roof! Then we're going to dig a crop circle in the kickball field. Maybe we'll add a few complementary speed bumps in the teacher's parking lot if we have time!
Posted by Kristen Coski  in  Ocala, Fl  on  Thu Apr 12, 2007  at  03:08 PM
We're going to put a car on our lunchroom roof painted up in school colors with '07' and such all over it.

I like some of the ideas on here from others, but honestly, give it a rest with the 3 pigs numbered 1,2, and 4. Everyone and their mother has heard of that one.

Unfortunately, there's a fine line between a prank and a crime. Like someone said before, be sure to weigh the pros and cons in your head. I heavily advise to only do it if you're under 18, also.

Best Senior prank, spray painting our school name on an off ramp of 95 by staging an accident and redirecting cars at 2 in the morning.

And we cut down a tree

Sadly, I googled "senior pranks" to help some of my seniors come up with a creative prank, but all I'm finding is cruel, illegal, and valdalization type pranks--often posted by folks who can't even spell. One must wonder how did they graduate? Anyway, if you have any fun and creative ideas, please post away.

Me and a bunch of the seniors are going to buy really cheap dildos and super glue them to the walls, and cement them into the ground in front of the school.we are also going to have a bunch to just chuck at people the last day of school. also, my school has this thing called the a-hole(its real name).it is in a-wing at the entrance, and it is like a balcony only circular. so at lunch we're going to dump big buckets of dildos on people and then drop a sign that says "you just got fucked in the a-hole". so does anyone know where we can get like 200 REALLY cheap dildos?
