      I started first grade (did not go to kindergarten) in 1959 in the so-called Graded Building that was part of Morristown Elementary School in Morrisville, Vt.  This is my first grade class photo.  I'm second from left in the next to the last row.

    All the schools I attended were in Massachusetts, where I still reside.

    This is in order-

    1st-2nd grade, I went to Ballet, which was up the street from the house my parents bought.

    3rd grade, I went to White Street School, had to be bussed to get there.

    4th grade, I went to Sumner Ave School, had to be bussed there also.

    5th and 6th grade, I went to Elias Brookings School, which I lived close enough I could walk to school.

    7th-9th grade, I went to Forest Park Junior High, which is now a middle school, but was able to walk to school.

    10th-12th grade, I went to High School of Commerce, which I took public bus to get back and forth.

    No further education after that. smile

    No kindergarten, but from 1st through college all in the little town of LaGrande, Or.  Various schools there, but in a town of 10,000 it doesn't make much difference and there was only one high school and junior high (middle) school.

    When I started college they only offered 2 years of my major, but in my sophomore year they added a third year and when I was a junior they added the degree.  It worked out well.

        Yes and no...everything till third grade was in metro Detroit.

        Everything after 3rd grade was in the same county, but it was a large (area-wise anyway) rural county in northern Michigan (Alcona).  The community college was in the adjacent county (Alpena).

        After ACC, I had moved back down to metro Detroit.  Livonia is a Detroit suburb.

            My junior high through high school years were that way.  I loved it.  And, while we did move around - A LOT - my mother worked very hard to keep us in Alcona County so that I didn't have to change schools.  That meant a lot to me.

        Birmingham City Council decided to produce a flyer, to post through every door in Birmingham, which has a population of approximately 1.5 million.  It had a photograph on the front, to show the changing skyline of Birmingham, which has been transformed by the building of higher and higher skyscrapers.  Although the picture looked like Birmingham, it was hard to make out individual buildings, and it just didn't look quite right.  Then an observant person realised that the skyline was actually of Birmingham Alabama.
