: What does this phrase mean when it is affixed to the names of high schools or collages?
: As in "COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL, Home of the Rebels"...
Schools in the U.S. have the custom of adopting a nickname. Sometimes it is an animal -- Shady Spring High School Tigers, etc. Or, in the case above, it is "the Rebels."
