She did what? What’s her problem? Ugh, I can’t stand you! These are a few statements that you can often associate with the drama queens, and sometimes, drama kings. High school drama can ruin friendships, relationships, and sometimes lives. If you are wondering how average people at Poth High School perceive this nonsense, keep reading.

Why do you think that there is a lot of high school drama?

“No one has a life. People make up stuff because they have nothing better to do,” Poth High School (PHS) junior Kyle Pruski said.

“One word: immaturity,” PHS junior Craig Kilgore said.

“Because people argue over stupid, insignificant things and don’t consider there are two sides to every story,” PHS senior Jessica Dziuk said.

“Mostly for stupid reasons. What a lot of people don’t realize is this is high school, not Jersey Shore!” PHS senior Heather Meyer said.

Poth High School Counselor Nicole Dziuk said, “It is hard to talk to people and express how we feel. It’s easier just to be angry at someone, than work out a problem.”

What are some things that there is drama over?

“I think the better question is what isn’t there drama over,” Craig said.

“Gossip, boys,” Jessica said.

“Misunderstood gossip, relationships, and people saying the wrong things at the wrong time,” Heather said.

“Boys, misunderstandings, rumors, and gossip,” Mrs. Dziuk said.

How do you deal with high school drama?

“Stay away from the people that cause drama. Also, stay a mutual friend to everyone so they won’t say stuff about you that is not true. I try to keep my nose out of drama,” Kyle said.

“It’s like pulling weeds: You go to the source and uproot it for the ugly thing it truly is,” Craig said.

“I mainly avoid it and overlook little things with drama,” Jessica said.

“I try to be nice to everyone I see and hope for the same treatment. If people are mean to me anyway, then they aren’t worth my time and attention,” Heather said.

Mrs. Dziuk said, “Have students talk it out [involving two parts]. First: why they are hurt; secondly: How to move forward. But sometimes it just doesn’t work out and you need to take a break.”

What are ways to prevent getting involved with drama?

“Pick friends that don’t have drama so you can hang out with them and act like you don’t know anything that goes on,” Kyle said.

“Don’t join theater,” Craig said.

“Stay away from dramatic people who like to gossip,” Jessica said.

“Stay out of other’s business and be as nice as possible,” Heather said.

“Distract people by changing the subject,” Mrs. Dziuk said. “Tell the person you are friends with both and you don’t want to choose sides. Then ask them to not talk about the other person.”

What is some advice for “dramatic people”?

“Think before you say anything to people because reputations and friends are often torn apart because of drama. Finally, many feelings are broken from drama and people. Mind your own business, and drama won’t happen,” Kyle said.

“Get over yourself,” Craig said.

“Let go and let God,” Jessica said.

“Take a walk in another person’s shoes before starting trouble with them. You never know what someone is going through,” Heather said.

Mrs. Dziuk said, “Ask yourself: Will this be important in 10 years? Is it really worth losing a friend over?”

Cody Soto is a junior at Poth High School.
