I know children hate to change schools, leaving all their friends behind and having to meet and make new friends in the new school. When I was a child I had to do this. I was living in Florida when my mother passed and my relatives brought us to Alabama to live. At this new school I had to make new friends which took time. I hated this, I would try to hang out with my cousin and her friends who were in a grade lower than me and that was a very uncomfortable feeling. I finally made some nice friends and I enjoyed the rest of my school years with great memories good and bad. How many public schools did you attend as a child? It was 2 for me.

I attended a total of 3 schools. Not because I moved, but because different grades went to different schools. They were all in the same school district.

I had the same case with you. I switched classes cuz of different grades, but it was still in the same school. I think it a great chance to make new friends though it takes some time. But the more good friends you make, the happier you are. So just take it as a pleasure to change school.

I can think of six schools right off the bat that I attended as a child. i always hated changing schools. I am on the shy side in real life. So, meeting new people in an envoirment I was not use was a real struggle for me.

3 primary schools and 2 secondary schools I have attended.That bored me a lot that some many friends I missed and have seen each other any more since the day i went away.That's terrible memory you had to moved on and on and adapted to the new environment and new faces.Though I'm the one not hard to get along with,but when everything is familiar and set down,I had to threw them away.Sadly...

Since I was always changing places when I was a kid, I end up with 5 schools for the first 8 years, then I came to Coimbra, Portugal, for one year, but I was intern on a private college, then I came to Lisbon, doing the last 3 years. Total: 6 public schools + one internal

Oh my goodness, I couldn't even begin to count! I know it was atleast 20. One time I only went to this one school for ONE day! My mother was a very confused individual. We moved, on average, every couple months, if not more.

I was fortunate that I didn't have to change schools when young. Just attend school in the same city, like my elementary school, junior middle school and high school. But I attend university in another city also not far away from my hometown. I regard it a pleasure to switch schools cus you can make different friends.

I attended 5 different schools and I hated that! I was always picked on at every school because I was "the new Kid" and I always had to try to make new friends which was always difficult.

I attended.. "4" schools!! One was because we moved to some other town.. Others was for studies.. and my dad didn't like one of them and etc etc.. May be that's why I have no special schooldays memories.. I don't want to go back to my school life. I never hated to be a new comer in any school.. I always managed to make good friends to hangout with.

For me,I didn't transfer to other schools. It hard to start with new friends, getting them to know well,and developing my rappart to them, mingling to new people and environment.

Since elementary until college I am very proud to say that I went in a public school. They say that learning is very different when you study in private compared studying in public school. Because we always believe that effecient teachers can be found in private school. Well infact most effecient teachers are can be found in public school because they passed the board examination for teachers. But for me, it depends on the child not in school, but ofcoures it is always an advantage to study and finished studies in private school. But I have this friend,he is ahead from me for two years. He went to private school and I, in public. I already finished my studies and got passed in licensure examination for teachers this year. But there he is, still studying. I don't know what happened to hi but I hope that he can finished his studies next year.:-) To sum up, school doesn't matter but the willingness of a student to learn and finished studies does! Happy mylotting!

When I was still studying I attended 10 schools (mostly private starting from preparatory to college). The reason for this is that my mom is trying to put me in a good school yet cheaper one. My mother is a fickle mind kasi that's why. It was not that difficult for me to transfer from one school to another. I get along easily with new classmates and having new friends(now, the by product for this is, I became a people person). The good thing about transferring from different school are; you will have this capacity to adopt easily to your new environment, (in which we should learn how to, because in this big world nothing is permanent and everything is rapidly changing), you can practice yourself to adjust your behavior towards others, you can have a lot of friends, you can mingle with different personalities(in the end you will know how to deal with different personalities), and you can explore and discover a lot of things. If there is an advantage, there will also be a disadvantage. The disadvantage from transferring one school to another is that the relationship that you have build up with your friends will be cut. If you are just open enough to welcome new things (especially new people) in your life. It won't be difficult for you to move from one place to another. Later on, you'll appreciate life more. :)

When I was growing up, my dad was in the military, so we moved often, almost yearly when I was younger. I did not attend the same school two years in a row until my freshman and sophomore years in high school, and then again my junior and senior years. Sooooo, let's see..... that would be 11 different schools. It wasn't very fun.

My Dad was in construction and we moved almost every year. I had a total of 7 diffent school before I got into high school. The longest I ever sspent in one place was when I joined the military then I was stationed at one base for 4 years. I joined to see the world, all if was was SOUTH CAROLINA . That changed my career choose for ever.

I only went to one grade school all the way K thru 8th grade. That's right. Back then our junior high was included in our grade school. As a matter of fact, it's funny that you brought this up. Our class has been talking about having a 25th year class reunion. Hardly any of us went to our high school reunion. I guess we just weren't into it. Either that or it was because our high school was so big. I hope we end up doing it. The chatter has just begun, and there are a lot of people who seem to be interested. Thanks for starting this discussion, and have a great day. Oh, and by the way, I like your new avatar!
