Almost all high school students, smart or stupid, active or non-active, will be divided into one of three categories: Stupids, those that never study and nearly always fail, Nerds, those that study continuously and always have a perfect grade, and Smarties, those that study a lot and always get a good grade. Nearly everyone wishes that they could be as intelligent as a Nerd is, but have as much fun as a Stupid does. In a way, everyone wishes that they were a Smartie, because they are able to have fun on the weekends and still are able to get a good grade on the test the next Monday. Being a Smartie, a student that is a Nerd and a Stupid at the same time, is the best type of student to be.
Stupids are named for being too stupid to even try to do well in school not because they are actually stupid, although some are. Hardly showing up to their classes, they still pass each grade. They never study and never do homework, yet somehow they still manage to make it to graduation. If they weren't too busy having fun by, playing pranks on Nerds, starting food fights, or doing who knows what while ditching school, than they probably would be able to receive a higher letter grade than "F" on at least one assignment. Even when they
If it were possible to merge a Stupid with a Nerd, a Smartie would be the outcome. They are named Smarties because they are smart enough to know that receiving less than perfect grades isn't the end of the world, and that having fun in high school is important. A Nerd is a person that spends time talking to teachers, studying, and reading about everything. They also know what homework assignments are essential to do and which ones are not. Working in a group will ensure an "A" on a project, and working alone will bring a similar grade. A Smartie gets good grades while having fun. After all, someone has to join the teams and clubs; the Nerds are too busy studying and the Stupids are not eligible to participate. Besides, both of them have their down sides: either get bad grades and go nowhere in life, or spend endless hours of studying and have no fun ever. Because of their horrible grades, they never get to have fun by participating in extra curricular activities. They don't choose to participate in activities like fundraisers or class games, and because of this, they never meet a Nerd that, most likely, would do their homework for them. Nerds are always in the library, not just to study, but for fun. Studying is essential when their class schedule is packed full of college prep classes. Unlike the Stupids, the Nerds always go to class, do theirs and other peoples homework, and always study. In a group project, the Nerd will do all the work no matter what anyone else says, for if anyone helps, the Nerd believes, he will not receive a perfect grade. So, a Smartie is a watered down Nerd This isn't true.
