    I have to go with high school, beacuse when I took college courses, I was in the Army.

    In HS, I was in the AV club and worked on the school newspaper. Also, I was in student council

    I had to choose junior high and high school! I loved high school the best because of all the time I spent in concert and marching band!

    College was OK, but lots of stress. No money, some material (engineering degree) too challenging for my natural aptitude.

    HS was a blast, mainly because I was a first-class band geek! (Hi, Pamela).

    Band AND Choir geek here. I made Texas All-State Choir my senior year in HS, and got to travel to Denver to sing in the ACDA National Honor Choir (where I got to sing a solo). That was a pretty good year for me. Of course, when I got to college thinking I was hot stuff, they told me, "Oh yeah, well out of the 40 singers in this choir, 38 made All-State. Welcome, little fish."

    Oh well... it was fun while it lasted. :tongue3:

    Elementary and college were my favorite. Between those years, most of the kids were snobs, bullies, or gang members.

    I really liked school until my freshman year in H.S. when a senior walked up to me in gym, put his finger against my temple, and told me he was going to kill me. He did this with about 10 of his friends behind him. He was a short mexican kid and I would guarantee you that he was a gang member. When I was a sophmore, we had a school shooting. When I was a junior I had a substitute teacher try to flunk me for plagiarism; unfounded, of course. And, when I was a senior, I had a guy show and try to sell me a bag of cocaine.

    Junior high was filled with those boys, in their awkward years, trying to impress all the girls by finding the biggest guy in the class, me, and beat me up or just make fun of me. Fortunately, at that time I was so much bigger than everyone else that I could usually take several of them at once, if they stood still long enough for me to catch them.

    By college, the people that were there actually wanted to be there and were grown up. It's kind of funny how people can change between the end of their H.S. senior year and the beginning of their College freshman year.

    In general, I would much, much rather be around my church family because I know exactly where I stand with them and they are truthful with me and care about me.

    I have learned more in church and being around those people, about social knowledge, than I ever did going through public education.

    Don't believe what they tell you about public education being needful for social development. It's baloney. All it taught me was that people can be cruel and mean and physically harmful to you and get away with it. Church is an infinitely superior way for a person to become socially adept.

    I guess my rant's over. That sure brought up some bad and good memories.

    I really enjoyed High School. I had some good teachers throughout my school years. That makes school a lot better.

    college, definitely. My first two years were at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. I was finally away from my two curvaceous sisters (who stole all my high school dates but one!) and on my own. I was a California girl at the time of the Beach Boys and California girls had this 'mystique' about them because of that singing group. So it was immediate popularity. I had also graduated from a very, very good public high school and most of the kids during my freshman year spent their time catching up to what I had already learned, so I had a fantastic social life! I mean, come on, the Air Force Academy was just a few miles away....LOL

    After CC I took a couple of years off due to several reasons, but when I went back to college it was at a California University and I was more than ready to get back into the traces. The courses were interesting and I enjoyed getting back to studying.

    I ended up encouraging my own children to take time off before college if they wanted to, to take a breather. Sometimes 12 years of school is enough for a bit!

    But I loved college/university, not only because of the social life those first couple of years, but because I was finally able to take courses I was really interested in and learned to think things through and then explain what I was thinking. I liked that.

    I hated elementary school and jr. high. But it's a toss up as to whether high school or college was better. Both were small Christian schools that I really enjoyed. Fond memories!

    Oh, yeah--I was a yearbook staff geek. lol
