Welcome to an exciting school year at Copperdale High!
Copperdale is an ideal place to pursue your high school dreams, exploring your identity and testing your limits as you make friends, experience legendary teenage moments and grow into the Sim you want to be. Located on the shores of Lake LaSuli, this former mining town features seven lots built by The Sims 4 community creators, including MsGryphi, who built the combination thrift store and Boba hangout ThrifTea; xfreezerbunnyx who built the library; and JOL1990, who built the director’s mansion.
Blaze trails through high school
Teenage life in Copperdale revolves around high school. This is where your teenage Sims make lifelong friends, develop their first crushes, choose their favorite extracurricular activities, and grow into adulthood.
Teenage Sims attend classes, meet up with friends, enjoy lunch in the cafeteria, take weekly exams, and maybe try to skip classes during school hours and earn detention (watch out for the principal). After school, students can then attend events like the science fair or participate in activities like soccer, cheerleading, chess, and the computer club.
Extracurricular activities that your Sims can join include both clubs and teams, such as soccer or cheer. In these activities, teenage Sims practice skill-related activities, compete in competitions, and experience the thrill of victory (and the bitter sting of defeat) alongside their teammates.
Young love is also in the air. Your Sims will feel the flutter that comes with teenage crushes and maybe muster up the courage to ask out the object of their affection – or they might get lucky and their crush might make the first move! The downside of course is the fear of unrequited feelings or first breakups.
Pro tip: Plumbite Pier – the local amusement park – is the perfect place for a date!
Stir things up with pranks and fashion
Spice up the lives of your teenage Sims by getting them into trouble. In the high school years, there are more opportunities than ever for teenage Sims to explore their mischievous side by playing pranks. They could mark the whiteboard, leave a stinkercap in someone’s locker, or tamper with the school’s PA system! Just make sure you don’t get caught. While successful pranks increase a Sim’s Mischief ability, detection has consequences and can lead to trust issues.
Teenage Sims can also have fun hanging out in their bedrooms, sitting cross-legged together on their beds, or even having pillow fights. Or, if they’re tired of being locked in, they can sneak out of the house after curfew using The E Window and Trellis Ladder, which allows them to climb down the side of the house and escape for a night of fun (again, try , not to get caught).
Fashion has always been a big part of The Sims because it’s the ultimate form of self-expression. A collaboration with Depop gives your teenage Sims even more styles to explore with looks designed by real Depop sellers Jeremy Salazar, Sha’an d’Anthes, Lapoze McTribouy, Selena Williams and Bella McFadden.
Sports stars, prom kings and farewell speakers
Every high school experience requires two key events: prom and graduation.
Prom is the most exciting, albeit scary, night of high school for many teenage Sims. To prepare, they can present their crush with a promotional sign, choose the perfect outfit, invite friends over to get ready, and vote for the prom kings. Dance routines, music, snacks and more are all under your control as the player.
Graduation is the grand event that marks a Sim’s transition into adulthood. In preparation, Sims invite guests, choose their outfits, and even get gifts for their school friends and favorite teachers.
