My class was planning on learning a song and dance routine and then performing it in the middle of the cafeteria, without warning anyone beforehand. Either that, or organising it so that everyone in the room except for one person knows whats going on, and that one person is left thinking that they are in the middle of a cheesy musical.

I've always loved this concept, and I think about it a lot. What if everyone just started dancing and singing? This has always been my dream.

Yes, that would be awesome. Even better if you break up into 2 groups and do a West Side Story Jets vs. Sharks kind of thing.

I've always been rather tempted to find a bunch of mannequins and put them at the school entrance. Maybe have one look like a butler? And perhaps another hanging from the ceiling like it climbed there. Most mannequins are rather expensive it seems, but there are inflatable ones that might work... And they'd be easier for pranks anyway. ^.^

At my friend's old school the seniors stole all of the dissection specimens and strung them up on a tree in the quad by their entrails...

I really wish i had been there.

I feel like getting started early-- I'm a Freshman and want to do something great... By the way, my High School is Dr. Phillips High School, And for those of you that are too lazy to read, It's situated right across the street from Universal Studios Florida... Within a few hundred feet. I don't know if there's anything we can do with this, but the peak of Dueling Dragons does give a nice view of our football field... If not, computer 'malfunctions' are always fun. Especially done in .vbs.

Hahaha to both! Do you remember the command/code for it? I'd love to try it! If not, undeterred, I'll proceed to do it myself... :twisted:

It's going to be SWEET.


The TV Production class at our school RickRolled everybody come WDOC time after 5th period. It also came with a skit that everyone believed to be the actual show (although the anchors were getting hit with paper balls and a guy dressed in a cardboard suit with a stormtrooper helmet and a spraypainted keyboard attached to his 'chest' were present) which let half of the school out 3 minutes before the end of the period. Awesomeness.

I actually bought one about a month ago and was looking for something fun to do with it... It seems that it might be taken as 'domestic terrorism', however... :D Somebody has probably already put one in our ceiling in our French class (which the teacher thinks is a malfunctioning A/C unit, but the administration refuses to acknowledge because of the cost of fixing it). It really sucks because whenever the 'A/C' is on, it makes that God-foresaken 12kHz beep... only it's constant, so I don't think it's an annoy-a-tron... We still can't do tests in that room...

A lot of people in my district will throw/slingshot/flick pencils up into the sort of ceiling that you guys have been describing... Usually teachers don't notice it, but I was thinking of sticking several hundred into the ceiling tiles... haha!

Making porn pop up on people's screen as the teacher walks by, having message boxes pop up on people's screens during computer tests saying things like "that's the wrong answer, try again", sending fake error messages in French, and so on.

The epitome of awesomeness. I honor you for your sheer awesomeness. :)

For a senior prank one year the local Big Boy figure made it's way across town (about eight miles) and on to the roof of the high school gymnasium.

The best pranks are the simplest and most annonomous. I've always dreamed of putting a small radio player with loud speakers in the ventillation shaft in the gym. Then, when we have school assembly (in the gym) I would turn on the speakers using a remote control and play The Pokemon Theme song endlessly.

Speakers: ..I wanna be the very best, that no-one ever was..duh duh duh-duh
Principal: What the Hell...
Speakers: To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause
Hot Girl: (Yelling) Whoever orchestrated this prank is a genius and I want to make out with you passionately

There are only three possible logistical problems

1. How do i get the speakers up there?
2. What if the remote doesn't work through metal/distance
3. How do I afford speakers + stereo + remote?

I'm thinking of doing it during the singing of the national anthem, which we have to do EVERY DAY. WHILE STANDING UP. (Every ANZAC day a few people faint from being forced to sit in the sun and then stand up suddenly. The upside is the competitive gambling scene of seeing how many people colllapse).

I go to a private school in Australia, and they are pretty strict there. My friend got suspended for "compromising the integrity of the schools network" which really means "putting Warcraft 3 on the school computers and lanning over the network". If he was my kid i'd be so proud :) Anyway this is a pretty versitile prank as it is easy and you can play songs, messages, or set it up so it just makes a real loud bass noise and then stops so they don't know where it came from. It's the last term of year twelve and i'm COMMITTED to this. No-one has EVER pulled a school prank that i've heard of before at our school. I will be a legend!

P.S. How can I Make This Prank Better?

1. Get a ladder. A big one.
2. It should work at a distance, test it first.
3. "Hey mum/dad, I have a field trip coming up and its really expensive". That, or, collaborate with some friends, you go to a private school after all.

But please don't do it on ANZAC day, that would just be disrespectful.

Ah, Year 12. That means you're like me and have an exam on the 31st of October, exciting, innit? I need to think but a prank in the next couples of weeks.... I was think EMP, but that would just be expensive. And I could get sued. Again, you wont be legendary. The thing about anonymous pranks is that "some guy" did "this thing with some speakers in the gym x amount of years ago". You could reveal yourself after graduation however.

Warning: crude bathroom humour

Some toilets and urinals have a flathead screw used to adjust the water pressure and flow. If turned all the way to the left, the water flow and pressure is at its maximum. One specific urinal at my school dispenses an unholy amount of water with such pressure that it goes over the barrier and drenches anybody who flushes and doesn't move fast enough. It's pretty funny to watch. Unfortunately, that's the only urinal in my school that actually overflows like that. The other ones just use more water.

Doing this on the toilets doesn't result in much, they just use a lot more water, are considerably louder, and spray water a little bit. And it increases suction probably... but even without this "modification" most industrial-strength toilets found in schools suck down all of the oxygen within two feet and seem to create a miniature black hole. They're impossible to clog.

We played roulette with ocmputers. There's 6 computers on a table, and they're all paired off, facing each other. A guy at the end (by the plugs) says 'Save your work and pick a number, 1-6'
I said '4'.
"Alright" *switch is flicked*
Me: "Cock, that was my computer"

So he asks the guy 2 ocmps up from me, who thinks for a moment and confidently says '1'
*switch flicked- his computer turns off*

There were only 3 of us on that table so the switch-flicker chooses 5, and his screen turns off...

There are 6 computers, 6 monitors, and 6 plugs. So 3 of the computers aren't connected to anything, it seems...

At my school there is a public paging phone, so we can find our friends, We practically use that thing daily for pranks. Like, one time, my friend Josh got on it and used a lisp and said, "Mom? Mom? I'm lost! Mom?"

My buddy just put a nifty batch file on a bunch of the school computers.
After several minutes of use, a dialogue box appears asking "Would you like a free cupholder?"
Positive responses result in the CD tray popping out.

I will have a part in this.

List of previous pranks at school:

1. Disassembling a car and putting it on the roof
2. Buying crickets (a truckload) from a snake food company and unleashing them in C-Hall
3. Herding a cow into the clocktower


List of pranks I have (successfully) done:
1. Proudly displaying a FedEX banner that said "PENIS" in really huge letters on the last day of school, set up high between two trees.
2. Airhorn Panic
3. Rigged the bathroom vent so someone could pull on a string and water would come flushing into a stall
4. Rigged the washing station in the bathroom so water would shoot 180 degrees, up to 15 feet

There's a tradition at my school that on the last day for the senior class (a week before everybody else) they bring noisemakers and run around the halls in between classes and after school making noise. The last couple years it's been particularly intense, so they said that at the end of this year we can't do anything like that.

So a few friends and I were talking one day, and decided we weren't going to stand for this, and came up with a couple ideas. First, the not-so-awesome but more feasible one, that we would get annoyingly flashy lights. Alternatively, we would get everyone we could to dress up like Amish people and go around school shushing everybody, even teachers. And all get out Bibles during DEAR time (not sure what that has to do with noise, but whatever). This would only be funny if we got a big majority of the senior class to do it, and since there are upwards of 400 of us, I doubt that will happen. It would be pretty sweet, though.

We had a Senior 2008 prank, but it had some sort of backstory to it, so I'll have to explain the significance a bit.

As freshman, one of the top teachers in our school quit after publishing an article about our principal. The article was entitled "Quack" and explained how our principal was a total moron who spent all our money and had no consideration for her students (she said at one point our English scores were lower than before because we had a higher population of Asian students). The reason for the name "Quack" was because she lied to everyone about having a Doctorate, and had required everyone to call her "Dr. ******" instead of "Ms. *******".

We were the last class to experience this incident and still be in the school, and many of the students did not understand the hatred that we feel for our principal. To express our still-hated for our "beloved principal" we cement glued a bunch of rubber ducks to the ground of our courtyard (where everyone hangs out). The ducks were glued in the shape of "08", representing our "Class of 2008".

Obviously, the administration was horrified. The principal, her henchmen (the vice principals), some teachers (few teachers, actually) had to run around picking them off the ground for a good 3 hours. In fact, they had to recruit (and by recruit, I mean force), freshmen to help them pick the duckies off the ground.

This was as the school was already piling in for their first and second period classes. After the principal and her folks were done ripping the duckies off, they threw all of them in the closest trashcans. It was then that all the seniors took the duckies and started throwing them all over the place. On the trees, some people kept theirs, others placed them on her secretary's desk and in her office...

It was an interesting day.

Ok, here's what my class will definiteley do:

1. Cut out some Batman logos and glue them (with real nasty sticking glue) to all the overheadprojectors.
2. Get some Annoy-A-Trons and hide them in various places throughout the building, including the teachers lounge and the principals office.
3. Get to program a "virus" to have every computer in the building do and display whatever we want whenever we want and also to open / close the disc trays of every running computer by random.

Thing I personally would like to do but yet have to convince the others of the self-named "Prank Squad".

1. Abuse the building-wide-soundsystem to RickRoll the entire School.
2. Abuse the building-wide-soundsystem to have ACDC play the whole day.
3. Use a sh*t load of Annoy-A-Trons throughout the building so it would take weeks to hunt them all down. (muharhar :twisted: )
4. Involve a car on the roof.
5. Fill the teachers lounge with helium-baloons.
6. Etc etc etc

I didn't do this one but in 8th grade we were in a history class and this history class we had to meet up in the library to learn how to take notes on our computers but we had to take notes on paper so all the computers were back in the class room and this was before they had a password requirement on the computer so my friend claimed he had to use the bathroom he was gone about 5 minutes and when he came back he told me he had changed the backround of this other kids computer the picture of a naked woman. The teacher is a VERY strong Femenist. We came back to the class for he opened his computer and everyone but the teacher noticed his backround he opened a window to cover the backround and changed the backround through his settings. The rumor still exists now.

We had heaps of stuff planned for our graduation but because of what happened at Xavier College our school cracked down really hard on us. All we ended up doing was putting vasaline on the door handles. Still me and a few friends had the idea of engraving 08 into some coins and then superglueing them to the ground in places people rarely go.
Hit3k's 'proofs' where pretty awesome I especially like the one involving i. I did a similar thing earlier this year with my specialist math teacher when I showed her the "Zero proof" that I found in a book.
Spoiler:
a=b
a^2=ab
a^2-b^2=ab-b^2
(a-b)(a+b)=a(a-b)
(a+b)=b
a=0
Therefore anything can equal nothing!?

She spent a full hour and a half class trying to figure it out and she still didn't believe me when I told her why it didn't work
Spoiler:
If a=b then (a-b)=0 and you are dividing by 0 in step four

One specific urinal at my school dispenses an unholy amount of water with such pressure that it goes over the barrier and drenches anybody who flushes and doesn't move fast enough. It's pretty funny to watch. Unfortunately, that's the only urinal in my school that actually overflows like that. The other ones just use more water.

Doing this on the toilets doesn't result in much, they just use a lot more water, are considerably louder, and spray water a little bit. And it increases suction probably... but even without this "modification" most industrial-strength toilets found in schools suck down all of the oxygen within two feet and seem to create a miniature black hole. They're impossible to clog.


I need pictures of this screw.


I'll get a picture with my cell phone tomorrow. Hell, I'll even get a video of it.

this is probably completely impossible but it would be insanely funny (not to mention annoying) to see if you could somehow get control over the power supply to the entire school. this would probably require becoming very good friends with the janitors
(man, now I wish I was back in high school)

back on topic, the only one that was done at my school that hasn't been described here yet goes as follows:

some seniors one year brought a box full of ladybugs into the library and somehow opened the lid remotely, The library at that school had a set of massive windows in it and the ladybugs headed straight for these and completely covered them.

not nearly as impressive as some of the ones I've seen here but not bad nonetheless.

I swear people let off stink bombs in C-hall EVERY. SINGLE. FUCKING. DAY. It always smells like shit, and people are literally coughing everywhere and trying to not faint.

Pioneer High School sucks.

180 degree angle, or 180 degree (C/F) water?
:P :twisted:


My bad for not clarifying, these bathroom and locker room washing stations' nozzles are pointed kind of inward, towards the drain, so I took my nimble hand and wrenched them around so the beam of water would shoot outwards. Then, I kicked the valve under it so it was at extremely high water pressures all the time.

Modifying drinking fountain water pressures ftw :p

1. Cut out some Batman logos and glue them (with real nasty sticking glue) to all the overheadprojectors.
2. Get some Annoy-A-Trons and hide them in various places throughout the building, including the teachers lounge and the principals office.
3. Get to program a "virus" to have every computer in the building do and display whatever we want whenever we want and also to open / close the disc trays of every running computer by random.

Thing I personally would like to do but yet have to convince the others of the self-named "Prank Squad".

1. Abuse the building-wide-soundsystem to RickRoll the entire School.
2. Abuse the building-wide-soundsystem to have ACDC play the whole day.
3. Use a sh*t load of Annoy-A-Trons throughout the building so it would take weeks to hunt them all down. (muharhar :twisted: )
4. Involve a car on the roof.
5. Fill the teachers lounge with helium-baloons.
6. Etc etc etc


Car on roof = done.
Building-wide cable TV video announcements hijacked: done.
Using a universal remote (PSP irShell, 3.71M33) to turn on the TV's and put on PBS: done.
Install NetBus in all the school computers: 90% done.
Install a remote-control power tripper: done.

All these have caused so much mayhem. NetBus rocks.

My school had a toilet which overflowed every single time you flushed. So, I'd just sit there, watch someone go into the only stall that had a working door, and giggle as they said "HOLY FUCK!" And ran out of the stall, which was overflowing with shit-water.

A few weeks afterwards, the toilet was protected with a big plastic baggy on it so noone would take a shit in it. Someone did.

Now it's all fixed up >.>

For a prank a while ago, some seinors put a portapotty in the courtyard. I came to find out afterwards that they did this super simple: used an extension ladder as an inclined plane to get it up, then just slid it on the ladder across the roof, and back down into the courtyard. Easy.

The janitors, however, got a scissor lift into the courtyard, hauled the portapotty onto it, pushed it up, carried it across the roof, put it on the lift, went down, and carried it across the parking lot back to it original spot. it was hilarous watching them devise this plan.

I have three mildly amusing pranks (one i participated in, one was the year before i attended the school, one had catastrophic consequences)

1. Taking an 8th grader from the middle school (my school is 7-12) and ducktaping him behind a door (making him a valet for the day)

2. Putting Fish in the vents. Unfortunately the funny part is after the actual prank. The cops were called when someone saw the kids sneak into the school well into the night. My school is on a peninsula, so the cops had a merry chase around the campus (and the nearby college) and the foolish Seniors were arrested. Plus the school smelled like fish for the rest of the winter.

3. This was before I was there- in the old science building at my school, there was a plug that would spark pretty regularly. Well on the day of a safety inspection, the chemistry teacher in the lab timed it so a jet of flame (they were doing a lab that has since been discontinued) would shoot across the room as the safety inspector walked by.

The professor actually did it? Sweet. Assuming that by the above, you don't mean that he incinerated the safety inspector.

For my government class my teacher would drop our lowest test score. At the end of the year I had an A, so I really didn't have to take the final. Knowing this, there really wasn't much risk...

I made a real version of this comic: http://xkcd.com/135/ and printed out tons of copies beforehand. The morning of the test I stayed around the faculty room until he printed out the final and then got a hold of them and stapled that page on the back of most of the tests. It only took a few minutes before students who glanced over the whole test started saying "dinosaurs?!"

As an added joke, I used the bubble sheet to pencil in the number "42." When he gave them back I asked him what the answer to life, the universe, and everything was. This teacher was really cool (he used to work at Google!), so of course he knew the answer. I then demanded that if 42 was the answer, how could I get all of these questions wrong, and showed him my test. He thought it was so funny that I bombed a test to make a joke he actually kept my test. :P

Learned today that a couple of years ago the seniors used a pulley system to move all of the cafeteria tables onto the roof.
Problem is, the roof of our school is flat. Can anyone figure out how they managed to use pulleys to move the tables...? I can't...

Just FYI: Filling the main office with pingpong balls, playpen balls, or packing peanuts is always fun too. =D
Our school might do that this year, because the seniors aren't very creative and I supplied the (rather easy) logistics for filling the main office with cheap, voluminous objects to my friend (in case they get desperate).

Minor, harmless, and entertaining.

That is awesome.

I had plans with a friend to do this through the cafeteria, but we never managed to finish the costumes.
In fact looking back, I can't think of any pranks that were ever completed all the way at my high school...

I discovered the 'say' command in OS X. Infinite fun.

Basically, all the OS X computers that aren't running the newest version of OS X (so, all the student computers) can run 'Terminal' if not launced from Finder. So, I just type 'telnet:' to spawn a console and go from there.

Now, I need to figure out how to sneak a shell script into the student start-up scripts...

we have a pa system for general announcements, as most schools do. every now and then students are allowed to say an announcement about upcoming activities they are organising (eg, SRC announcement for a dance). somhow, one of the year elevens got permission to rickroll the whole school. not for graduation or anything! it was hilarious, until my friends and i realised that most of our school just thought there was a mistake and the music was played accidentally.

my school is SO not geeky enough.

At the end of my brother's final school year, this year. They went up to the school fairly early and double parked (or triple parked depending on the car) so that the teachers had no where to park. However this sort of failed because not everyone had their license to drive at this time. (Australia, different driving laws to other nations. Also it didn't help that their year only had about 45 students.) So then they ended up running the car park as a toll way sort of set up. Everyone who cam in had to pay money, they ended up making a fair bit from it too.

My senior year a friend of mine spent an entire paycheck on 30,000 super bouncie balls. He and two friends snuck into the ceiling of the school the night before and waited there all night and day until the pep rally in the gym where all 2,400 students and teachers were. Halfway through, they opened up a tile on the ceiling and spilled out all 30k of the bouncie balls. You literally couldn't take a step without almost tripping on them, and most people got hit in the face. The teachers and security tried to gain control of the students, but we all stayed and played with them for about thirty minutes after the rally ended.

Congratulations Xavier College on being complete dickheads.


my school is pretty boring. for the past few years people (the guys) would run around the school screaming. this was during the time other grades were still in class. some guys would also jump into the pool as soon as the graduation ceremony finished. the girls didn't because of uniforms, white shirts. in 07 one of the guy jumped in the pool before the graduation. this year all things like that were banned and if anyone did the weren't allowed to go to the formal.
*thumbs up and grin creepy-like*
Spoiler:
you just wasted a few seconds of your life. congratulations
