On our way home from CostCo tonight, we passed by Lakeside Middle School and we got to comparing notes.
Where I was living, there wasn't a thing called "middle school". Seventh and eighth grade were with the high school (American Academy in Athens, Greece, back in the late 60s). When we got back to the states, we lived at Edwards Air Force Base and high school was ninth through twelfth.
For Brian, down here in San Diego county, they had middle school, which at first consisted of seventh and eighth grades, then they added sixth grade to middle school. Elementary was first through fifth at that point.
He thought it was statewide back then, until the family went up to the Los Angeles area to visit with his aunt, uncle and cousins. At his cousins' school, grades seven through twelve were on the same campus.
So, what was it like in your neck of the woods? Care to share?
