I Went to 4 high schools. I went to a private academy for 9-10th grade, then to a large suburban school, considered the best in TX, then to a shitty HS in the hood for 12th grade.
My private school experience was very good. I was always an inbetweener socially, and somewhat of an underachiever though. Going to a private school was enriching, but going to a large suburban HS sucked.
My last years at the ghetto HS were actually fun. i ran into some trouble at the douchy suburban school when they denied my credits of 2 semesters for missing more than 3 f**ing days of school. (Tardies were counted as absences)
I left private school because it was my home school, and my parents were getting fisted w/ school taxes anyway, and my private HS was almost an hour commute.
After being fed up of that shitty suburban HS, i switched school by myself.
Since i had a car, and my parents owned a rental house in the hood, i self enrolled in one of the most infamous HS in TX. However it was fun.
