it just depends on how much importance u give these drama..... i'm in high schools, and yes the drama is just SO stupid and boring......and i just ignore it, if there is any need for me to get involved i do and i try and make the guys get into a settlement...... i know how u feel, i get irritated by it too..... but u will see that if u just take it lightly and not give importance to it, more than becoming a headache, it will become something u can laugh and enjoy thinking of....8)
Maybe not so much of the teens but more or less with everyone being self absorbed or wanting attention. The school itself is a building or a collection of buildings, these do not create drama. Its occupants however, do. To cause drama means that people are focused on one subject... that being them. It's a way of out casting to be one with the group. High school can easily be related to a wild jungle... the rules are brutal, but one must survive. Good luck!
I would figure that teenagers these days would tend to start drama over anything and being self-centered brats. Their hormones causes them to be that way. Why even bother to be a drama queen? Drama is overrated.

Because they are already in a state where their emotions and worldviews are just beginning to mature, yet they are living in a culture that is constantly telling them that every single thought and feeling they have is on par with those of an adult, if not more advanced. We GREATLY over-validate teen sensibilities in this society, and way over-value teen culture. You see it every time you see a soccer mom wearing "Juicy" pants, or anybody over the age of 25 blasting Lady Gaga in their cars. All movies, books, and TV shows aimed at teens depict adults as clueless, stupid, caricatures, and the teens as the Artful Dodgerish heroes. As a result, teens feel they are living in a heightened state of awareness, and drama always results when over-validated people encounter anyone else (like a teacher or a peer) who either fails to validate them, or worse, invalidates them.
I would also add that as a teen you are realizing that you will be an adult soon and are chomping at the bit (so to speak) about having your thoughts and views validated as equal or on par with adults. Your emotions are heightened and you CANNOT imagine that ANYONE over the age of 18 could possibly understand what torture you are going through, how deeply your love is felt, how deep your understanding of a situation is, how in touch with the world you are....etc etc etc....
Rest assured that ALL adults were once in exactly the same situation as you. We DO know exactly what you are feeling. BUT the difference is, we have grown up and realized that we are NOT the center of the universe and there is more to life than who likes who or who wears what.
