High school students are lifting the lid on the most scandalous things that have happened at their schools, opening up about sordid teacher affairs, shocking student pranks – and a host of other outrageous incidents.
The confessions began as part of a comment thread on TikTok, after a user by the name of Katie asked people to share their high school’s worst scandal – while hinting that she has a story of her own to reveal, but won’t do so just yet because she hasn’t officially graduated.
‘Comment your high school’s worst scandal, no matter how bad, I [want to] compare,’ the Florida-based TikTokker wrote in her video. ‘My school still has my diploma till Tuesday so I’m [going to] hold off talking about mine, but please tell me yours!’

Keeping mum: The teen revealed that she felt unable to detail her own high school scandal because she had yet to officially graduate and didn’t want to get into trouble
While Katie was hesitant to reveal her own high school’s scandal, plenty of other users were more than happy to open up about the most shocking things to happen at their own educational institutions.
One user, named Tess Alana, revealed that a teacher who worked at the front desk of her school was caught stealing ADHD medication from students, swapping it out with Tylenol so that she could then use their prescription pills herself.
‘The front desk teacher would switch kids ADHD medicine with Tylenol so she could get high off of their medicine,’ she wrote.
And Tess certainly wasn’t the only one who had shocking tales to share about their teachers.
Another user called Han chimed in on the thread to reveal that one of her teachers had actually robbed a bank – after taking time off to allegedly spend a few days with her family.
‘My teacher told us she was “going to see some family and will be away for a few days” but that weekend she robbed a bank,’ Han wrote – prompting another user to reveal that her principal had committed a similar crime.

Theft: Several users shared stories about teachers who were caught stealing – some from the schools themselves, while another was busted robbing a bank
Romance: A number of other users wrote about in-school relationships that had gone awry, from teacher-student affairs to colleague jealousy
‘Our principal stole like $30K from the school,’ a girl named Taylor shared – before adding that, in response to the scandal, several students ‘dressed up in orange jumpsuits’ as a prank during spirit week.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there were also several stories about teacher-student romances gone awry, with one user – Molly – recalling a very awkward incident at her high school when it was revealed that the resources officer had been involved in several sexual encounters with students that took place in a closet.
To make matters all the more uncomfortable, the teacher involved was married to a news anchor who ended up having to report the story on air.
‘My school’s resource officer letting girls give him [oral sex] in a closet and then his wife at the time was a news reporter and had to do the news report,’ Molly revealed.
A user named Tristyn Koller shared her own very tragic story about the theater teacher at her school who committed suicide after falling in love with a student – only to find out that the teen was already having an affair with the music teacher.
‘Our theater teacher hung himself on the school stage [because] the music teacher was sleeping with the student he was in love with,’ she wrote in the comments.
Horrifying: There were dozens of stories about student pranks involving animals – including one school that was almost sued by PETA
Other students share stories about teacher-on-teacher romances, with one girl named Brooke Tollett recalling a shocking incident when her French teacher was kidnapped by a colleague who ‘was in love with her’ and got jealous about her friendship with another teacher.
‘Our dean of students kidnapped the French teacher because she was friendly with the photographer teacher and he was in love with her,’ she revealed.
The comments section was also filled with stories about scandals involving student pranks – with one user revealing that a girl at their school actually tried to ‘poison her dance team’ because she wanted a better spot in the line-up.
Another person posting under the name of Koko said that she and several other students ‘hung a deer from their rivals’ stadium’ in a gruesome prank that landed the school in the local news.
‘Their mascot is a Buck so they took it as a threat,’ she wrote. ‘It was all over the news.’
There were several other scandals involving animals; Kelsey Shade said her school found itself in very hot water with PETA after several students ‘played jump rope with a cat’s large intestine’ during anatomy class.
‘They posted a video and it went viral and PETA wanted to sue the school,’ she wrote.
