Synonyms of "High" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between high and top and upper ?
A: @cavefundoo. They might be used interchangeably, depending on context. A high shelf is not necessarily the TOP shelf. An upper shelf is not necessarily the HIGHEST or TOP.

Other questions about "High"

Q: When I was in High School i had sports class two times per week. We were going to school's gym sometimes, and we shared the gym with other class.
Their teacher was very intimidating, in fact all high school called her La Tronchatoros. I never had class with she, but you always could hear her scream to her class. So, one time we were playing voleibol (or we were trying), and for that we were practicing passes.
My friend and I were a mess with that. So, It wasn't weird that we didn't catch the ball. That day we were sharing the gym with Tronchatoro's class. And, well, my friend threw the ball to hard. I don't usually react to those things very well... or fast. But for only time I could get out of the way and the ball hit Tronchatoro's back. Obviously she started to look who was the poor student, and obviously I was laughing a lot because my friend got pale. does this sound natural?

A: Check the question to view the answer
Q: High school is always considered as the most cherished period of one’s life. As a Senior 3 student, it won’t be long before I graduate. Now, I have much to share with my fellow students.
Firstly, I would like to show my appreciation of help from those standing by me all the way, teachers, parents and friends included. Without their help and advice, my life would be different. Secondly, it's high time to say sorry to classmates whom I hurt or misunderstood. Communication and smiles act as bridges to friendship. Above all, I've made up my mind to make every effort to study, for I believe hard work is the key to success. Just as the old saying goes, "No pains, no gains."?
  Finally I hope that all the younger fellows can make full use of time, because time and tide wait for no men. does this sound natural?
