No fixed school attire – meaning every day is non-school-uniform-day!


Really nice cars that you can drive at 16.

Warner Bros. Pictures

We can technically drive at 17, but somehow that extra year made all the difference.


Amazing all-out proms and dances where people dress up and take dates.


Parents that frequently go out of town leaving their massive homes open for a “rager”.


Lovingly put together yearbooks that one can look back on once one has hardened with age.


Pools in back gardens, which must be an absolute dream.


Summer camps where you get to do all sorts of fun activities and make lots of friends.

An amazing roof that you can somehow climb out onto at night and look at the stars.


That one teacher you can pal around with.

British teachers are, 9 times out of 10, scary AF.


Spring break, in which you go on an outrageous sunny holiday with your best friends.


Sexy bonfires on the beach with your mates in which you talk about staying friends forever.


Those red solo cups to drink out of at parties.


Fun fact – I once tracked some of these down for my own party bc I was so obsessed.


Big landings that overlook the entire house and make it look like some sort of palace.


Infinitely better breakfast food, including but limited to: streaky bacon, bagels with cream cheese, stacked pancakes, and waffles!


Take your child to work days, which for some reason, I would’ve killed for as a child.


Bright yellow school buses that seems to be a proper thing, unlike the occasional minivan we get in the UK.


Super exciting school presidential campaigns that wonderfully capture the exuberant spirit of electoral politics.


And last but not least, a beautiful and serene lake house that you just so happen to have for impromptu weekends away.
