As adults, whenever you see teenagers being boisterous or rough-housing others, we tend to roll our eyes and move, chalking it up to youth.

I don't know about you, but when I was younger, in high school, I felt invincible and acted accordingly with my classmates without a care in the world.

Leaving the teachers baffled at the idea that these same students thought they could get away with it.

It's all a powderkeg of scandalous possibility.

Olivia Pope herself couldn't spin some of the stories that come out of high school.

And a lot of towns are rocked by school scandals.
