One thing is for certain: We've become more and more of a melting pot in the last twenty or so years in many places, which pretty much goes without saying, and there's just no turning back in this day and age. You can even see drastic changes in some small towns.

The high school I went to was 100% white non-hispanic when I went there. In 1990 it was 99% white, and is now 96% white. It has nearly doubled in size.

Where I live now, it has consistently been about 50% Hispanic, 7% black, 43% white. It is the largest high school in Texas, some years very close to 4,000.

Actually, the Detroit public High Schools that still have decent amounts of White students are Chadsey, Western International and Southwestern, all on the Southwestern side of Detroit. Those schools also have high Hispanic student populations too. Outside of those high schools, Cass Tech and Renaissance are the only other high schools that are around 2% White. Osborn and Pershing are about 1% White. After that, the rest of the HS's aren't even 1% White.

Man, Thornton Fractional has changed drastically in that 1989-2007 timeframe. I know schools like Rich Central in Olympia Fields did too. So, I'm wondering if the same thing happened in that district with people from lower income neighborhoods in Chicago moving out there.

Here's the High School I went to:Westhill High School, Syracuse New York / NY school information and ethnic makeup

I graduated in 1994 and I was one of 3 black kids in the senior class. From the site, it seems like the demos are a year behind, from what I remember because we had about 20 Asians in the school when I graduated and in 1992 we had at one time 14 Black students due to a couple of students coming in later. So, I wonder when does the school count the students?

Here are the other schools I went to:Onondaga Hill Middle School, Syracuse New York / NY school information and ethnic makeup

Yeah, I didn't mention Southwest Detroit, but you're right. That area isn't mentioned much when discussing Detroit, considering the overwhelming black majority, but it's one of the most racially diverse areas in the metro.

I'm not going to name my high school, but I will give the elementary school I went to when I was in Detroit. The houses surrounding the school have been cleared out now and the school itself closed at the end of the 2006-07 school year.

That's true about people not mentioning SW Detroit. Also, people forget about neighborhoods like Indian Village, Palmer Woods, Palmer Park, Corktown, Midtown, Boston-Edison, Warrendale, Delray and Springwells, which are all still mixed neigborhoods. Some of those neighborhoods are very nice too.

Here is my high school. Not very diverse, but it's fairly stable.

Here is the closest local high school in Youngstown. Looks like white flight in action as the number of African-American and Hispanic students remains fairly steady, and the number of white students drop off.
