    My high school graduating class was less than one hundred individuals. Our class president was KIA with the 1stInf Div, Vietnam. Six of use would enlist in the Marine Corps. Each of us would serve in Viet-Nam at different times. One member of our High school football team went on to play in the NFL. Compared to the surrounding area our school was rather small.

    I graduated from a prep school in 1959 at age 17 among a class of 127. I went right into the Marine Corps and the other 126 event to college. It was an all boys school with no drivers ed course. So I did not ever get to experience the wonder that the OP has cited. Now at 77 I would like the opportunity for a do over of the car episode only.

    I went to a medium large school that was made Huge because they were remodeling two other high schools and moved all the Seniors to my school. I went from 6am till noon, the next shift went from noon till 6 pm. On Graduation day There were 1500 graduating seniors. It had to be done in two shifts also. I don't remember most of the people I graduated with! [ That and it was the 70's] DR

    I went to an all-boys, religious college-prep school. The administration took over a girls college that had been there over 100 years, but then moved to a new campus about 15 miles away. Total enrollment of the HS was less than 600. I graduated in a class of about 150. The school was only open about 10 years before it went bankrupt.

    The religious organization that owned it wanted to sell it off to a developer who wanted tear it down and build apartments, but it was a historic building and the state wouldn't them do it. Then one night the whole thing burnt to the ground. Once the rubble was cleared, they sold it to the developer and it is now apartments. The night watchman plead guilty to the arson that started the fire, but would never say why he did it. He got six years, did a portion of that and I can only imagine he got some sort of lifetime remuneration from whoever put him up to it.

    Gradated in a class of 407 in 1977. Our school was a relatively small consolidated school whose students came from three different 'towns', one Boro and two Townships. Our class was on the small side, total enrollment for the three grades in the school was about 1500.

    I liked going to the school with a graduating class of twelve, I was in the top ten in my class. The biggest problem was every girl I asked out told me they couldn't go out with me because they were my cousin. So much for that Southern cliché. Of the twenty-five or so girls in the high school, about four were not related to me.

    The school I graduated from had 600 students in the 1st through 12th grades. I graduated in 1968 in the largest senior class they ever had, all 63 of us and I was even taught by some of the same teachers that taught my mother. Most of my graduating class has never left the area. We had 4 schools in the county and two years after I left they opened a big consolidated school and closed the other four.
