I don't know.
I was cyber schooled and didn't get to go to prom. I regret all of the high school things I didn't get to experience (like prom).
I always dreamed of the dress and envied all my friends that got to go. Maybe if I had been in an actual high school, I would have felt differently. Although my friend did go to a regular high school, didn't go to prom, and we were recently talking about how she regretted it.
In the end, it's up to you.
If you have a group of friends that want to go, you should go and have a good time. If you're not feeling it and you don't have anyone to go with, don't go.
Maybe you guys could get together and do something else fun. Make the night memorable and celebrate the end of high school another way. Then you'll always remember prom night because you ditched prom lol.

I didn't go to mine and I don't feel like my life was negatively affected by that. I can honestly say that I never felt "Oh I really regret not going to it." As you get older and have other experiences, the importance of it will fade. It is kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity though so you don't get another chance at it.
My feeling is that if you really don't care now, I'm guessing you probably won't really care later either, but if you have a nagging feeling that you really want to go, then maybe you should so you don't regret not going later.
