I liked high school, perhaps it was because I was the first class to graduate from my school, and the class size for my class was 13 (somewhere in the high 30's for the year before it) and now the school has a little over 200 students. The school allowed the students to be very involved and form the traditions,clubs, government, and other things. People were pretty accepting. I guess thats what 25k a year gets you, but in my opinion, those memories are worth every penny.

I get the satisfaction of a job well done, building things soup-to-nuts, in an industry that IS NOT teeming with tens of thousands of the best & brightest software geeks. Master concepts at the undergrad level (which sadly, few degree holders do), and you're gold.

Yes, I probably will.

I'm a sophomore now, and I'm most concerned about my friends; no doubt we'll lose contact.

I suppose there's no reason to have pre-nostalgia though. Life gives us things and we have to deal with them as they come.

Is it at least in the cloud? =0 Just got accepted to Berkeley, Bay Area being a killer startup area, although I haven't made any decisions yet. On another note, their Div I aquatics program is insane...

Woot!
I too was on my schools Academic Decathlon team. I miss the trip to Hawaii for nationals, but that is about it.

College is way, way better, except for having to actually put effort into some of my classes

I'm seven years removed from high school and I'm about as ambivalent about the experience then as I am now. I'm sure it had considerable influence on the person I am today but not as a result of a lot of drama or traumatic experiences. I didn't have to deal with any BS through those years. I mostly coasted through, socially and academically. I did make a small handful of friends along the way and I still have those friendships which I cherish very much. I barely made any new ones in college which I will be finishing this May.

I was in love with the same girl all through those years and never spoke up until graduation. She moved away soon after but we're good friends today. All things considered that was the best case scenario, but it was a mistake I have not repeated.

Meh, I don't really like my school but I know I'm going to miss seeing my friends everyday. However I am really looking forward to going to college to meet new people, see new places, learn new things, and of course, find people to listen to music with

(as there is nobody in my small town that does this :/)

I'm definitely going to miss a lot about my high school. My grade is pretty tiny (25), and I have some very close friends. I get along with my teachers well and there are a few in particular that I'm really going to miss next year. At the same time, I'm excited to be going to a school whose student body embraces science a bit more than the group I'm with right now

My 20yr reunion is coming up soon and I still have bad feelings towards High School and will NOT be attending any reunions. I had TONS of friends, some of which I talk to on a somewhat regular basis so I don't see the need for a reunion. Its going to be tough when my kids get into HS because I'll have to fake allot of positive reinforcement about how "great" HS is. I don't want them knowing that I hated it, fortunately they are both still young.

also...the wonderful state of Florida "re-integrated" the schools EVERY YEAR so I went to a different school every year! It sucked.

so yeah, I guess my answer is HELL NO!!! I don't miss HS! :-)

Raise the roof for Aca-Deca! if it weren't for that, and my parents, I honestly think I would have seriously considered doing as some of my friends did and drop out of high school, pick up my GED and then go straight to college.
