    How many schools have you attended?

    I was just running through this in my mind, and I felt compelled to share, and ask others...

    From K-12 and since, how many schools have you attended?

    B.F. Day Elementary
    Beacon Hill Elementary
    Some elementary school in CA that I don't remember the name of.
    Queen Ann Elementary
    Coleman Elementary

    I couldn't even tell you which grades I was in for each of the schools, except B. F. Day was where I started Kindergarten, and I think I started Coleman at some point in 4th grade.

    Then things slowed down...

    Meeker Jr, High
    Stadium High

    Chabot College
    Luzerne County Community College
    Wilkes University

    So 10... and I have a strange feeling I am forgetting an elementary school in the list.

    So, does anyone have more than 10?

    oh yeah I guess there was a K, then 2 grade schools, 1 middle school, 2 high schools, and finally 2 colleges (actually 2 degrees from one and then another). 8 over 27 years. Not continuous, fortunately.

    Two or three elementary schools, I forget.
    Junior high until they tore it down and turned it into 8-12.
    One high school
    Various school boards after Hs (didn't graduate)
    College - to get ready for GED
    College - Certificate - Admin assistant program.
    Local Brazilian organization, studied Portuguese
    Studied Portuguese with the New West school board.
    Vancouver school board, photography 1 and 2
    Vancouver school board, high school level stuff

    In September, college again, Anthropology. Still not a HS graduate. Going to study HS level math with the VSB and with my college courses I'll probably be declared a HS graduate pretty soon.

    University after college, $$$$$$$$$$$

    Seven--I was bounced around a lot as a kid. Nine if you count college too--I went to community college and 4yr uni. Ten or possibly eleven IF I get into grad school.

    4, but it doesnt really count. was in classes with the same 6 people until highschool because of (t.a.g) talented, and, gifted classes (but I only realized recently it is one step above the short bus kids. we couldn't be left alone we would get into trouble, genius has side effects.) left most of use social *******, some have blended nicely, a few have more felonies than me.

    2 elementary
    1 middle,
    1 high.

    3 colleges. one was a Lutheran college. the state school came by the Lutheran one and offered me a full scholarship, the state school had issues. 1 was a speciallty school about motorcycles. got hit by a truck broke my leg, they booted me out.
