    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Not small at all. Graduating class upwards of 800 I believe. Total school pop at the time was around 3500. It was one of 2 high schools in town in 2000. We now have 5.

    LOL.

    I graduated with 33. My first class in college had 800 and was held in an auditorium. It wasn't an easy adjustment.

    Perhaps they were kissing cousins?


    I attended a small school for most of my school years. We would have graduating classes in the mid-thirties. Then we were consolidated with two other school districts where one school district was about the same size as mine and the other was larger than both of the smaller ones put together. I ended up graduating with around 150 students.

    I too, went to a Catholic, all boys high school. The total enrollment was about 600, with 125 in my graduating class. Because my school was all boys, we were put in the "large school" classification for high school football.

    Class just held it's 50 year reunion. I did not attend, but I understand about 70 people, most of whom never moved away, attended the reunion.

    My graduating class was supposed to be about 300, but we broke a school record. 70 seniors didn't graduate.

    For the record I did. Barely.

    My high school grades were so poor that I would not have been accepted to the university I wanted to go to. I got in solely on the basis of my SAT scores.

    I graduated from a little school in the UP of Michigan in 1960. There were 100 students in the school from kindergarten thru 12th grade. Our class had 10 graduates. We had a class of only 3 a few years before me. There are only 6 of us left from our class. The school closed 6 years later and was torn down. Kids from several towns now go to a central school which is 12 miles from our town. Is this small enough ?

    My graduating class was 120. We were the first graduating class. I was in the upper class for three years running. (Freshman-Sophomore) (Sophomore-Junior) and then finally (Junior-Senior).
