In snoburbia, there is a hierarchy in everything.
High school kids in snoburbia must take as many Advanced Placement classes as they can cram into their schedules. But, in a high school where not one, but two kids just became Intel semifinalists, there is snobbery about which AP you take. A boy I happen to know very, very well is proud to be taking his first AP class - AP Human Geography. He spends hours learning the rivers, countries and capitols of Africa and South America and neatly coloring in maps.
His friends tease him for taking "AP Coloring."
