Genius Teen Allegedly Hacks Into School System To Give Himself Better Grades It is a high school rite of passage to find a way to improve your academic performance without actually studying harder, at least in Hollywood, where 25-year-old teenagers attempt to kill roommates and stage bicycle accidents in order to pass tests and get As. And it certainly does seem like it takes a certain skill to fake good grades—one Staten Island high schooler recently demonstrated when he allegedly hacked into his school’s secure computer system to change his report cards.
