Without any older siblings to show me the way, my high school experience often felt like guiding a kayak through a monsoon. Only, the kayak had raging hormones and was working at a grocery store for below minimum wage. Instead, I turned to Hollywood to teach me the way to succeed in high school. Now that Disney is getting ready to release a film about that most iconic of high school experiences — yes, “Prom” — this may be a good opportunity to look back at what Hollywood taught me about the high school experience … and make sure it doesn’t steer you down the same hopeless path.
