TOP TEN (Okay, eleven) SIGNS YOUR SCHOOL IS ON A HELLMOUTH
- When a teacher dies, a student is allowed to be the substitute teacher for the rest of the year. (They say there's a shortage of qualified teachers, but come on!)
- "In Memoriam" is the biggest section of each class's yearbook
- Your principal is eaten by hyenas
- Your computer really is out to get you
- Your school library is filled with arcane texts, and none of the students you know ever enters it
- Your classmates can build incredibly sophisticated artificially intelligent robots, and nobody is impressed
- Instead of athletic skill and sex appeal, you need a knowledge of witchcraft to join the cheerleader squad
- The librarian writes you hall passes that excuse you from class to fight Armaggedon
- Your teacher is a preying mantis. Or a Gypsy.
- Vampires crash the parent/teacher conferences, but CNN doesn't cover it
- The mayor eats your graduating class
