I went to Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, NM and it was a bit different in the way it was set up. For one, there was no large building that all the students used. it was actually a series of smaller, specialized buildings that were spread across a large hilltop. For instance, we had the library building that was set apart from the administration building. All of the foreign language classes got their own building, as did the math and science classes All Physical Education classes and most extracurricular sports took place in a large gym complex. As the number of students in the school grew they had to supplement most of those buildings with "portables" which were basically just a series of trailers stuck together under a patio style roof. I think all of my English and Social Studies classes were in the portables.

As for the demographic of the student body, it was 80-90% hispanic, about 10-15% white, with African-Americans and other minorities making up the rest.

Our school mascot was the Demons and our school colors were old-gold and navy blue.

I can relate to bits. My Primary School was a bunch of portacabins for the first year coz it burned down the year before I started.

My Secondary School was a split sited jaunt coz it was new when I enrolled and as it expanded it had to grow and the gas works next to it was in the way so it grew around the works, the main school on one side, the sixth form down this long track across the fields and to the other side of the gasworks.

...and at University I was a minority amoungst an Asian Islamic Community, because...erm...we invited lots of Asians to work in the mills during the industrial revolution and whilst the industry dried up, the Asian Community (or the decendants of) still remain in that location.

Other then that my school life was completely different to yours. What sort of subjects did you learn? Does America have a National Cirriculum for education???

Millville high school, which was probably pretty standard but more recently it resembles gangland high. City has gone WAY downhill in the last 20 years, mostly thanks to section 8 rentals bringing in a bunch of scumbags. At some point, a portion of the city was re-zoned for section 8 and it went downhill in a hurry after that. Now all the decent people who can afford to are moving out, which just makes room for more scum to move in and increase the problem. The real shame are the unfortunate elderly citizens who can't afford to move out because their houses are practically worthless now so they just live in fear of the ghetto that developed around them.
