The Chant

NC contains a great diversity of students: depending on their characteristics and personalities, every classroom could include at least one person who sleeps through lectures (The Sleepers), another that loves to talk (The Teacher’s Pets/Class Clowns), or yet another that constantly stares at their phones (The Slackers). No matter what type of stereotype group the students belong to, they play a huge part in the high school experience.
