Naughty Maryland students pull a prank by listing their school as ‘nice half-running jail’ on Zillow

Last week, a group of high school seniors in Fort Meade, Maryland decided to prank their high school by trying to sell it on Zillow. According to local media outlets, they listed Meade High School on the real estate website for a price of $42,069.

The joke list, which was later removed, included humorous details such as a “garbage-smelling complementary air freshener” and mentioned “water problems”.

Students also humorously described the school as a “nice, half-functioning jail”, highlighting “sewer problems” in all 15 bathrooms and jokingly warning of “dangerous unfinished sections that could cost you your life.”

The listing also stated: “Your neighbors are rodents and insects that will make you squeal!”


While the content of the list may have been somewhat insulting, Bob Mosier, a spokesman for Anne Arundel County Public Schools, openly acknowledged that he found the joke funny.

“This is incredibly creative advertising, but we are amazed that advertisers have so underestimated the value of this great real estate with incredible amenities,” he said in a statement to the media.

“Potential buyers will surely flock to close this deal, right? This won’t be on the market for long.”

Interestingly, seniors from the same school district had previously been involved in a similar prank involving another educational institution.

During the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in the spring of 2020, students at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, Maryland put up a “for sale” sign outside their school as a playful gesture.

“Like the Meade High School prank, it was just funny,” Mosier told Patch. “Nobody was hurt, no property was damaged, and everyone had a good laugh.”
