School at its best creates an environment to mold young minds, however some of the more creative minds have other ideas about what school should be. Not everyone has the focus required for traditional educational settings and this can lead to some more out-of-the-box thinking. Thomas Edison, one of the most famous, inventors of all time dropped out of school due to his “wandering mind” and luckily for him and us that story turned out just fine.

Bored Panda has collected a list of some pretty ‘innovative’ pranks from school kids out there. Not all of these kids are future Edison’s, but we have to give props to the ingenuity of some of these ideas. Scroll down below to see our round-up and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

I'm tickled that two commenters say this is original. About twenty years ago when I was dragged to a dentist's office I read a readers digest that told an anecdote similar to this story - a student had sent a job application to an employer and the employer called back to say the envelope was empty.
