1. Do you like horror movies? Do they scare you?

2. Heels or flats? (or other)

3. Brag of the day-Newsweek ranks the 2 high schools in my district in the top 5 percent of American high schoolsLaughing

1. I hate them. I'd rather watch a comedy.

2. Heels, but I probably wear flats more b/c they're more practical. I think I've mentioned before that there is a bit of Imelda in me when it comes to shoes...

3. Another semester, another 4.0. My prof gave out grades today. Super excited about my A...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

"Another semester, another 4.0." ---------- Nice job! You must have gone to some highly rated HS ;)

Mine didn't rank on that list. Neither did DH's. Go figure. And yet, here we are...

You've described many times transferring your sons from school to school and one even back again.  You know best and I'm sure you felt they were the right decisions at the time.  No one's disputing that part.

I know the private school her children attend. They've attended it as long as I've known her, which is 11+ years now. Y'all are confused...

Knowing the name of a school doesn't change anything.  PKA has many times in the past discussed this so, you're mistaken.  There's no way you could know differently.  Unless she wasn't forthcoming on this board.  I could care less.  Spring's recall is usually quite reliable too.

Yep I might be old but I still have SOME memory left. It was elementary school and yes they did change schools.

I didn't bother looking up the school systems in IL, because it's of no interest to me.  The schools in the county where I used to live--all the high schools--are nationally ranked, with the lowest ranked school in that county scoring an 83 for college readiness. The schools in this county have always been excellent and it was for that reason that I chose the condo.  If anything those schools have improved over the years.

The two high schools that serve the town where I live now are not nationally ranked and I didn't look to see if any of the other high schools in this county are.  I like the county and the school system didn't drive my home choice.

And seriously, this thread is about as stupid a pissing match as I've seen.  It might even achieve the same levels of dumb and dumber as the "shopping at thrift stores is STEALING FROM THE POOR!!!!11!!11eleventy!!"

If we're discussing high schools, then why does their elementary school matter?

lol so now it does not matter because we were ONLY talking about reports on high schools? Nice try.
