When it comes to their senior pranks, some students feel the urge to make up for their lack of creativity by causing harm. It was not uncommon for kids at Teaneck High School in New Jersey to turn desks upside-down, urinate on them and the hall carpet, apply Vaseline to door handles, and attach raw hot dogs to lockers. It cost the school $3,000 to deal with the 63 children, and they were all arrested for a variety of reasons.

Harmless Pranks You Should Try
High School Seniors would definitely want to leave their school grounds with a mark; thus, here are some pranks that will make them unforgettable--we hope they won't get behind bars, though!
Unscrew Them All
This is surely one of the most hilarious pranks out there, and here goes: you are going to need a screwdriver. Bring the tool to the school, and then unscrew everything! The thing is you have to unscrew things randomly, you don't have to think about which to unscrew, JUST UNSCREW!
Make sure you don't get caught, or you'll get a trip to the principal's office.
On the front lawn, write out the graduation year. Using plastic forks or cocktail umbrella toothpicks to spell out the year is one method of doing this. You can also use white spray paint if you acquire permission from your school administrators ahead of time. It will fade away after a few mowings.
Take a photo and make sure they include in your yearbook!
This is surely a classic prank! Invite all of the seniors to place their cars in a maze-like pattern in the parking lot. You should consult with your transportation director to ensure that you are not blocking buses or creating a safety issue.
Flash mob it up! Dance and sing together before the graduation ceremony. In order to get everyone on their feet and ready to perform on graduation day, one of the keynote speakers should say a sentence. This may be a lot of fun if you can recruit the help of the janitors, instructors, and even the school secretary.
Prank calls never go out of style because everyone is fooled by them. Prepare your script before calling your target, or use a prank call app you may find online if you don't have the creative capacity to create your own script.

Ready To Graduate With A Bang?
There isn't always a clear line between what's okay and what's not for a good high school senior prank, so use your common sense first. Your joke shouldn't hurt anyone or anything alive, cause vandalism or damage, change the school for good, or be illegal. You don't want to be remembered as the class where 60 people went to jail because of a prank.
If you're not sure, ask your teacher before you pull the prank. Most principals like a good senior prank that doesn't hurt anyone as much as you do. Once you know what you can and can't do, it's time to have fun and see what kind of mark your class can make. Good luck with your future endeavors, senior class!
