High school student discounts?

I wonder, are there any Mac stores that offer discounts for high school students? NOT university students.

Anywhere that offers the educational discount should be able to. University campuses and the Applestore I believe are the only ones as retail usually can't offer this discount unfortunately. Unless I'm wrong, which would be a pleasant surprise.

I'm in high school. Why would universities or Apple Store give me a discount? They already told me NO when I last asked them.

That's very odd that the Apple Store would say no to you as they allow it online and they pretty much just check the online system to see if you've ordered anything from them before as a high school student, teacher, faculty member of a university, etc.

Guess you're outta luck then since those are the only places that offer it. You can buy online I guess from Apple.

Wierd about the universities too as they will even sell at discount to the general community (naughty I know but they do it).

Hmmmm talk to them because university stores usually give ALL students in the province a discount... just show them your high school ID, and if in doubt, get the store to call Apple HQ to verify that high school students get a discount too.

Unfortunately High School students do not qualify for a discount. Only the staff & faculty.

"Choose one of these options if you are making a personal purchase and wish to take advantage of Appleís educational discounts.

College or University Student
College or University Staff
K-12 School Faculty or Staff"

One question.

Is the discount the same amount if purchasing from either university or Apple?
