PIEDMONT, Calif. (KGO) -- Piedmont High School is well known for its high academic standards. It's ranked third in the state on student test scores. But now, its reputation is tarnished because of a lurid controversy -- a sex game played by some students.

This is the first day back at Piedmont since the principal sent parents a shocking letter describing the school's recent discovery of "a 'Fantasy Slut League' in which our female students (unbeknownst to most of them) are drafted as part of the league...Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students."

"Hopefully it opened up conversations with a lot of families in town because we should be thinking about what our kids are doing and holding them responsible for behavior that's not appropriate," parent Tami Becker said.

The school says there's no indication anyone was forced to participate in the league or that any crimes were committed, but they continue to investigate.

Principal Rich Kitchens says he has alerted police.

"We don't have specific identities yet and without specific identities there's not much you can do and also this is largely, if not totally, off-campus behavior," Kitchens said.

Kitchens says whistleblowers tell him the league has been in play for years mostly involving varsity athletes with peer pressure and alcohol as factors.

Students willing to talk say it is demeaning.

"I think it's kind of abuse of women; I don't really like it, it's kind of like bullying," student Zoe Daffner said.

Other students say while a point system is repulsive, teenage sex is a societal issue not just a Piedmont High School issue.

"It always comes back to how do we educate students and to have further conversations with the community," Assistant Superintendent Randall Booker said.

The school now has educational assemblies planned.

"I think an assembly is the first step to take a general approach to this," student Matty Specht said.

Utter stupidity. And I'm a firm believer that actions of students that take place off campus are none of the school's ****ing business. Games like this have been played among high school students since as long as I can remember. I graduated high school well over 20 years ago, and I remember students talking about games like this when I was in junior high.

Yeah just because it existed 20 years ago doesn't make it right or appropriate. Parents needs to take responsiblity and talk to their kids about this **** so it doesn't happen.

It's a bunch of guys making up stories about girls they would like to ****. No one was harmed, and seriously, I don't see any issue with this. People (male and female) have made up fantasy stories about other people since the beginning of time.

So what exactly doesn't happen? All this is, is highschool boys engaging in sexual activity (completely normal) and bragging about it with their friends (completely normal). If any girl is higher up on the list, then that only goes to show she should settle down and not sleep with so many people. But their teens, that's what happens, infact it's the best part about high school....
