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

<"How many years ago did he graduate from high school though?" ------------ Seriously? Would you like his date of birth and social security number too?

Not really. Just wondered as I am sure it has been a LONG time ago as I have been out for 24 years now.>

So are you are saying that your school has gotten better since you were there?  

Since I didn't see a report like the one I saw yesterday 24 years ago, I wouldn't know that.

<<Yes, I AM pleased. I think anyone who has a child in school SHOULD be pleased if there school makes a list like that. I don't know what it ranked when I went there 24 + years ago. Not sure how you can compare when your dh went there 30+ years ago though either. >>

Sure, pleased that they made a list but the list doesn't tell a complete story of a school, not even close.

<<"as I am sure it has been a LONG time" -------- If you are so sure, why ask? Your sidekick is funny though.

So basically you are comparing the school NOW to what 30+ years ago? My kids are in the same high school I went to but I wouldn't be comparing 24 years ago to now>>

Well, why not?  Unless you are saying that the school has gone down or up hill in that period of time?  I would think that maintaining (or getting better) a quality education over a span of time is something one would look for in a school for their children.

Oh, is that your problem. Your argument being that it is worse now or better now? I really don't care deeply what your opinion is of the HS my dh once attended, nor do I care to dissect the relative worth of some HS now and the same HS 10, 30 or 70 years ago. You are terribly pleased that your local HSs made the XYZ list. Great!

The concern is why you would think your high school is not important enough to discuss but rather we might somehow be interested in your husband's high school.  We want to hear about you ~ we don't "know" your husband.  For instance, I went to a much better high school, college and grad school than my own dear husband.  Yet, here I sit, unemployed, a SAHM for more than a decade and continuing, while my husband is a self-made so-and-so.  But you've never heard his story because he's not posting on this board. (At least, I think!)

I can't even fathom putting my high school and magna cum laude on my old resumes.  And I thought this message board was for self-promotion of its members!  You know I like ya, Spring.  But I bet you don't care in the slightest which high school my dear hubs attended!!

No, I don't care where anyone went. I DO care about where my kids go though and I wouldn't be comparing schools NOW to THEN.

Are you contending it matters where people went to high school??  It's something to put on a c.v.??
