Ugh... I know exactly what you mean. I'm not quite in high school yet, but the guys my age are so immature, and kinda stupid. Stupid on purpose really. Because if one of them (particularly the "popular" ones) happened to get on the honor roll, they would be known as a "try hard". I don't see what's so wrong about trying your best, anyways? I guess they'll be the ones regretting it when they can't get in to any university and have a job flippin' burgers. They also act like everythings a big deal, spend their time trying to come up with stupid things to say (for example, they came up with "stoop" for the word stupid), and can't treat anyone with respect. Like you said, I'm not perfect either, but at least I'm trying :/... I'm not saying all guys are like this, but majority are, plus I would way rather hang out with a mature, sweet, guy than one of those guys, who I am kind of embarrased to know for the most part.
