I have many fond memories of friends, classes I loved, the learning itself, dating, football games, and the dances, especially the prom. And some of the teachers were so fantastic. I loved driver's ed, too! What did you or do you most like about high school?

To be honest I didn't like anything about high school at least nothing memorable. Most of the things I did outside of school with the people I met in high school. However, I did enjoy having some conversations with a few teachers I met there. They really inspired me to grow as a person, not only educationally, but mentally. But really I couldn't wait to get out of high school. I enjoy college life much better.

I truly identify with having learned some good things from great teachers. I do believe in college we tend to be treated with more respect from the staff than when we are "kids" in high school. Thank you for adding to the discussion. Karen

Hello to you : ) Reunions, meeting up with past classmates, are almost always a lot of fun and full of good conversation. I am glad you enjoyed going to your husbands with him. Happy day, Karen

Hi Karen..I liked the idea of being able to choose your own classes or the field of classes that was most going to benegit you when you finished high school and would be looking for work or furthering my education with cillege. I took a schlorship test for college and got one of the schlorships that ere being offered, but I had to turn it down when I found out I was pregnant. Now when I was going to school the kept you separate from the other students if you were married and pregnant. Of course things have really chabged now. I got a job as an accountatnts helper and I was so glad becasue that is what all my courses in school and would have been in collehe had U been able to go. Anyway I work for an accounting firm for 35 years before I retired 2 years ago because of health reasons. Just remember, no matter what barrier is put in front of you to try and stop you, there is a way to either go through the barrier or around it. You just have to keep trying. flutterby

Your experience and advice is truly worth gold! I had to give up my scholarship, too, and yes, things are vastly different today. Most of us do find our way whatever the obstacles : ) Thank so much for your contribution to the discussion. Karen

I generally didn't enjoy high school that much. I had to study a lot, because I chose a school where you finish high school in 2 years instead of 3 years. I spent most of my spare time on studying, I like learning and I had some interesting classes, but there was too much work, and I wasn't really able to enjoy it. I had some great teacher though, and there are a few teachers that I will always remember, especially my French teacher and my German teacher. I really liked my French teacher's happiness and enthusiam, and my German teacher was great, too but in a different way. It is hard to describe him, but I am very happy that he was one of my teachers. I also had a few good friends from my class, but unfortuneately my best friend dropped out after half a year.

You must have been excruciatingly busy, with only 2 years to go through high school. It takes 4 years, here!! I admire that you saw it through and that you have several great teachers. : )) Have a beautiful night... Karen

We all change so much. One good way to keep up with people is the school reunions if you are in a position to attend those. I remember thinking some friends from school would always be a part of my life. A couple still are, but the rest...we have each gone are own ways and lost touch. Thank you for responding. Karen

I had a few classes I liked but mostly I hated the whole thing, I was never part of the in crowd and always felt like an outsider.

I was never part of the "in" crowd either, but I did have a few very good friends, and like you, I loved the learning : ) Karen

What I loved in high school was the school activities. I love the pep rallies, the football games, and the senior trip and my favorite the prom. In high school is where I met my sweetheart.

I think we learn as much about socializing in school as we do about academics, and both are good. Up with childhood sweethearts : ) Karen
