It began during the seventh grade. There were earlier symptoms, but during the seventh grade things hit hard. I began the year like any previous primary school year. With one exception: it was the final year of primary school. There was a mild excitement in the air. We knew we were approaching the end and preparing to take the plunge into the mysterious world of high school.

I settled into the class routine and found myself in a familiar and comfortable environment. The first few weeks rolled by and I began to notice things were not quite as I remembered. My classmates were separated into groups. I realised that each group followed a certain theme. Each side occupied a different area of the classroom and dominated a select group of tables. On one side were the well-liked, athletic, popular and good-looking students. On the other were those deemed unlikeable, unpopular, weirdos, nerds and many other derogatory terms. At first I didn’t think much of it. I was me and I didn’t feel like I was anything but.So I sat back and watched, feeling like an outsider to the entire structure. The popular mob had two leaders, one male and one female. And both were the absolute pinnacle of social standing. They expected infinite respect while treating others like dirt. Quite frankly, they repulsed me.

The next step down of this naturally set dictatorship were the leader’s closest friends (henchmen would be a better fitting title). They served as the leader’s personal lap dogs, doing their bidding, sucking up and supporting them. It seemed out of place to call them friends. I saw their relationship as more of a power sharing alliance. Next came the independent populars. Thankfully some of these were decent people and I got along with a few. They were well liked people and weren’t dependant on the leaders rule. They were the high class citizens of a classroom society. Below the popular rankings described are (of course) the unpopulars. They had no other classing about them, all merging into the single group. This was the basic overview of my grade seven classes social structure and my first introduction to the order and classing of people in the social hierarchy.
