Greetings, jocks, nerds, thespians, and skaters alike! Wednesday marks the 10th anniversary of the legendary Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical, which started something new on Jan. 20, 2006, and went on to spawn two successful sequels and kick-start enormous careers for some of its young stars.

Will Troy and Gabriella’s commitment to different after-school activities tear them apart? Or will they be able to, ahem, break free of the cruel system that threatens to thwart their dream of starring in East High’s winter musical, Twinkle Town?

Hope you’re ready to getcha head in the game and take our quiz to find out where you belong! No pressure! We’re all in this together, assuming “together” means neatly separated into clearly delineated groups. Go Wildcats!
