The times may not be changin'

The Breakfast Club was a film all about how cliques can keep teens from really getting to know each other in high school. The jocks were way too cool to hang out with the nerds. The popular girls would never be seen with the weird girls. And everyone was afraid of the criminal. The film was released in 1985, but its message is evergreen. It makes everyone think twice before they judge a book by its cover.

Thirty years later, teens are still being teens and forming cliques. Those lines may be blurred, however. These teens and newly-graduated young adults are explaining how things have changed, yet also stayed the same. Here’s what they had to say about what high school and social groups are like today.
