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.
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.
Bayside? My High School is really close to it: Princess Anne High I'm at George Mason University right now. Planning on Johns Hopkins for my graduate studies. ASTF.TK -------------------------- Edit: Nvm. I thought you meant the Bayside High in Virginia.
I completed my entire schooling in Texarkana, TX. Elementary through High School. 1976 HS grad. Twenty-nine years later, I finally finished college and graduated with a BAAS in Behavioral Science at TX A&M.
Everyone in my family has a college degree now. Dad, Bachelor in Architecture at Texas Tech. Mom, Masters in Education, NE TX University. Sister, Master of Fine Arts, Tempe Arizona. Brother, PhD in Art History, Austin TX. My son, Dual degrees in Astronomy & Physics at University of Washington. My daughter, Dual Associates Degree in Agriculture * General Studies at Texarkana College.
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.
I attended Tidwell in kindergarten 1984 in Houston, TX. My teacher was name miss Gardner which later she was the receptionist for my first son school ,which made me proud to know he was going to be experiencing something that I ready had. “Love”
K & 1st: Mill Hill Elementary (Southport, CT) 2nd & 3rd: Riverfield Elementary (Fairfield, CT) 4th: Rowayton Elementary (Rowayton, CT) 5th: Naramake Elementary (Norwalk, CT) 6th, 7th, 8th: St. Philip's (Norwalk, CT) because kids kept getting stabbed at Nathan Hale. Had an oppurtunity to skip 8th and declined. 9th-12th: Fairfield College Preparatory School (Fairfield, CT) run by the Jesuits. And then Marywood University in Scranton, PA run by a radical order of Catholic nuns called the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) that did not officially recognize the Pope. Should have known what type of girls attend a Catholic institution that is 95% percent female.

We didn't have kindergarten "back then".....so I started first grade in the fall of 1969 and spent all 12 years in the same small town school district in central Texas. We didn't even have air conditioning until 5th grade.
How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the...
