            I love this game, but.. Why do we have to wait 8 days for a plot of land?! 8 days! By the time I buy 2 or 3 more lots the wait will be 2 or 3 months ! For
            a little square pice of land! That's ridiculous, I understand 1 day a
            Ew. Um kind of a good game but you should get it
            Best app ever,but.. The only touch up is the timing part.2hours for a quest,3hours for a date,and 1-2hours for a new student,but I love the story of
            Max the bully and Kara the psychopath of cheerleading!It's the best app

            LOVE IT But.. It is amazing but it needs a little improvement. There rings are annoying, but if you make it you can buy rings with coins like
            5,000 coins for one ring. Maybe more maybe less. It is just an idea that

            Addicting and amazing!. At first, I thought the game was boring. Then, I just kept completing quests and before I knew it, I was instantly addicted! I

            almost all my quest require one. Please make it easier at least.
            AWESOME. It's much better then Hollywood u because on Hollywood u I put two people to party and they were done so I clicked the place and a
            note popped up and said not enough room I said i want the to stop par
            Best game ever. This game is amazing I love all the quest and how everything is based on most high school life! Their should be more games like
            Suggestions. I really like this game. I like it more than Hollywood U. I don't like how long everything takes though. When I'm bored I want to
            go on the game and play, not wait 10-24 hours for a party to finish or
            Addicted suggestion. I LOVE THIS APP SO FREAKING MUCH My only suggestion is can you make it so you can sell clothes that you have previously bought?

            Concern. Honestly, it's a fine game. I play it when I have time and I enjoy it. I just have one concern. I am playing a quest with a

            Fix problem. I love this game but it won't unlock kallie I try everything. Please fix this asap.
            Addicting and gay. This game is ultra addicting! I recommend! I love how they let you have gay and lesbian couples on there because it shows not all
            people like the opposite sex. Get used to it while your young, and get
            Like it. I really do like the game! It's just there should be more ways to earn books and rings because you don't earn many books and got
            lots of quests you need to level people and after level 5 it cost 500 b
            I love it. I love it. I mean extra credit! Who Thought of that great idea. I love it,I love it,I love it.#iloveit
            Minor Threat.. I just got to the part of the punk rock quest where you guys mentioned Minor Threat and I kinda wanted to say thanks. That band is
            literally one of the reasons I am who I am.For people who don't know
            Video upgrade. We should be able to see what the character is doing with a video. Like you can see them hiking, making out ,having (you know
            what), and kissing cause that would make it cool and realJust please add i
            Best Simulation Games Company. Pixelberry Studios have made the 2 best simulation games - High School Story, and Hollywood U (if I had to pick a favorite, it
            would be HSS, though they're both awesome!). I don't think I have seen be
            Clubs!. I love this game, it's awesome. Even though I've only had it for about an hour now. But I think you should add clubs, for
            instance, ANIME AND VIDEO GAME CLUBS :D it would be awesome.
            Great game. More ways to make rings would make the game 10x better. Without rings you can't buy any people. It really takes away from the
            entire vibe of enjoying the game.
            Really awesome !. So addicting and fun I totally recommend it!
            GREATEST GAME EVER. This is better then sims, I'll never stop playing!
            Fun. I really live this app though I hate when you have to wait many hours for party's dates and quests. Though I love the game.
            Love this game! But have some requests. I love this game! But I have some suggestions. They need to have the same hair styles in HSS as they do in HU, and there needs
            to be a hair color in between blond and brown and the black looks like
            Love!. I love this game! But needs work on how much time I have to wait just to buy something. Waiting 17 hours for a plot of land isn't
            worth it. Nor is waiting 11 for some upgrades.
            Absolutely amazing. Love this game! It is super addictive. Love it soooo much!
            Awesome game!. According to my 8 year old: Two words
            Thumbs Up!. I keep throwing parties for the characters I need and I'm not getting them I have a bunch of quests I can't fulfill bcuz I can't
            get the ppl I need
            So fun!. It is so much fun and I love playing it
            ️AMAZING️. I absolutely love this game! I told my friend about it and she loves it also! THANK U FOR THE AMAZING GAME!
            Kicks me out. I really like this game but, ever since the upgrade, every time I go to change a character's clothes or view a new outfit, it
            kicks me out to my home screen. Please fix this! I really like this game.
            Fantastic!. Love this game! Super addictive.
            Good. I wrote earlier and I'm the person who used these()as bullet points. I was just thinking about how u should also change the
            graphics for the hairs and u should REALLY add strawberry blonde hair, red h
            I'm loving this game. I'm so addicted sometimes the stuff costs to much but other than that I play all the time
            Can we get some new hair/faces. Great game and I love it, the only thing I ask is to add more hairs and faces so all my students don't look the same
            Love love love. I love this game! There are a couple issues here and there, but mostly it's great. My biggest complaint is that you can't have
            your main character be anything other than a jock, a prep, or a nerd! I g

            New ideas?. Over all I absolutely love this app, but I've read a lot of people's requests and I agree with most of them that 1. All the hair

            Great game needs improvements. Im hooked on this game and really enjoy it! The time is getting ridiculously long. Lower the wait times for quests, dates, books,

            This is the awsomest app ever. This is the most amazing app ever
            :). Every student is either gay or a lesbian.
            Addicting, but.. This app is great but I wish that after a party and you get your new person you didn't HAVE to wait an entire hour to use the
            administration office JUST because of a student you don't want! PLZPLZPLZP

            Great app; NEEDS JROTC classmates. As much as I truly love this game there is only one thing for me that keeps this rating at 4 stars instead of 5; this is because
            of a lack of one type of classmate: JROTC Cadets (Preferably U.S.M.C. J
            Awesome Game but Glitch. I love this game but the new update makes it randomly close out or not even open at all
            Natural - 10%
            I LOVED it until.. I used to play the game ALL the time until yesterday when I went on it the game started all over for me! NOT HAPPY
            Glitch.. There is a glitch where when I tried to buy the new clothes it closed the app. Then after a few days I tried again and every time
            I try to change the clothes it closes the app. This doesnt happen to t
            Ehhh.. This game is mediocre at best. I haven't been able to play a mission in weeks because of a lack of books/rings which require

            I used to love this game but.. so I saw there was an update and when I opened the app all my previous data and game was gone and it had restarted and I have been
            working on this game for over a year and I never deleted the app too!
            Good But.. Well, I only have an iOS 5 so I got the older version. But when I'm in the middle of playing the game this thing will pop up
            saying that I should update it. But there is no " I don't want to update it
            Bad update. It's a fun game.until it crashes with the latest update. And I just leveled up the relationship with my bf too.
            A good start. This app was very fun at the beginning but later on I tried to log in and it wasn't even my account! I tried to delete it and try
            again but it went straight back. It was very frustrating.
            Only 8?. I have over 20 students an only 8 of them will show! What's the deal? I had to delete everything I've done and refer it please fix
            Addictive game! (But offensive). This game has a lots of wonderful messages for teens and kids! It has a fun playstyle and great music! Your characters are very
