Only the last 4 years, the first 8 were private. In the test they gave me on entering high school I scored 12thgrade 9th month on every subject but math and science. That was how far ahead the private schools were ahead of public schools in the late 70s and early 80s. In truth being a little behind in math was probably my fault and being a little behind in science was probably the schools fault, as it was a religious school.

That being said I hated school to the point that 30 years out of school I get claustrophobic going to a parent teacher conference for my daughter. Somebody told me when I was in high school that these would be the best years of my life, to which I replied that I must be in store for a very crappy life. With the exception of the last couple of years with my ex es shenanigans every year after high school was better than the year before it.

QFT. I still have nightmares in which I am stuck in my senior year, and it has been 20 years since then. I too was told to enjoy theses years, they are the best years of your life. For me, they were some of the worst. My reply to the principal was along the lines of, If these are the best years of my life, then somebody should effin' shoot me. Add to that, my dad retiring from the Corps, and the transition to civilian life. Not just for him, but also for my mom and myself. Pretty big change for a 15 year old that spent all of his life living on or near base to move to a po-dunk little village of 750 in western NY state. Needless to say, it sucked.
