Less than 14 points--No Skeletons In Your Coat Closet!
You lucked out! You may have a strange math teacher or a boring computer teacher, but overall you’re in an average, run-of-the-mill school. No need to worry about your teachers. You have an overactive imagination and should start concentrating on your homework instead of quizzes like these! Go! Now! Start studying!

14 to 21 points--Glad I’m Not You!
Your teachers aren’t trying to eat you, but they may be trying to make your life miserable. You might have a former Army Sergeant for gym class or an unqualified bus driver, but at least they’re human! Buck up, little camper. Things might get better next year. In the mean time, go out and buy some apples. Human teachers love them!

22 to 30 points--Get Out Of There As Fast As You Can!
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but YOU HAVE A CREATURE TEACHER! In fact, it looks like your school is filled with them. Where do you live? The Twilight Zone? It’s very possible that your school faculty is made up of monsters, vampires, witches, and/or ghosts. Unless you’re a Slayer or have some supernatural powers you haven’t shared with the rest of us--RUN! Get out of there quick! Beg for a transfer! But whatever you do, don’t get sent to the Principal’s office--especially not alone...
