This game is the story of our high school lives. You make decisions just like
you would in real life and each decision has consequences. When you finish the
game you will be scored on the decisions you made and be told your future
career. There are many destinies possible and each decision will lead you to a
different destination. There are no right answers, a decision that appears right
may be wrong and a decision that appears wrong may be right. You'll learn by
experience that each choice you face in life has major repercussions.

Then she hands you a course catalog of all of the available courses that you
can take. "The decisions are yours. You can take what you want. But keep
those pre-requisites in mind please."
You take both the four-year plan and a list of graduation requirements home.
As you sit at your desk you're faced with a decision:
Should you schedule your course load so you have at least one friend
in each class.
Make sure all of your classes apply towards graduation.
