High School Bucket List. 100+ Things To Do Over Four Years!

Planning a high school bucket list is one of the funnest things! You have four years ahead of you that will shape who you start to become as an adult, but with plenty of room to let loose and still be a teenager.

Everyone’s life and goals are very different, but we made sure to get over 100+ high school bucket list ideas through experience that may enrich your time during those years. Feel free to add or take away anything that does not fit your bucket list ideas.

We hope you have the most wonderful time in high school and that you get to experience everything, because the world is at your finger tips. If you need some inspiration, check out my bucket list for my life. Wondering “what is a bucket list?” Rest assured – you know.

Oh and P.S. if you want to add “become TikTok famous” to your high school bucket list, we wouldn’t blame you! TikTok has changed lives for other high school students virtually overnight. But we wanted to be realistic when creating this list.
