The Complete List of Senior Superlatives

The Complete List of Senior Superlatives

As the school year winds down, seniors everywhere are waiting with bated breath for an answer to the most vital, life-changing, groundbreaking question of their academic careers:


Yes, Sparklers, the time of superlatives is upon us. And at high schools around the world, the competition is growing fiercer by the day as seniors yearn to know who will be forever immortalized on the pages of the yearbook as Most Talented, Best Looking, and Most Likely to Succeed. It's deadly serious business, and there can be but one winner, and... well... all right, there is one problem.

Your average senior superlatives are boring, banal, and woefully inadequate for honoring the myriad skills and talents of your class.

So today, your SparkNotes editors have created a better collection of superlatives—one that goes the extra mile, covers all the bases, and bestows honors far beyond the narrow socio-academic sphere of the average year-end awards. It's... THE COMPLETE LIST OF SENIOR SUPERLATIVES!

(The above is meant to be read in a booming, sci-fi radio play announcer sort of voice. If you failed to read it that way, please go back and do so now before continuing.)
