In high school, we drove down the (outdoor) main hallway of my elementary school and then did a slow autocross around the playgrounds and such.

And, once finding ourselves trapped in the parking lot of the girls' high school by some truly terrifying nuns, we found a maintenance road that looped around the athletic fields back to the street.

I remember both layouts very, very well.

Be careful drawing maps of schools in 2019.

I just pulled mine up on google maps. I have a clear visual picture of parts of the inside of 6 buildings (total of 14 buildings over 62 acres) but there's no way I could draw an accurate map or even guess the number of classrooms in any of them.

I remember the trails through the woods and the mall down the street pretty well though. That's where I spent a good part of the school day.

I saw this thread this morning, my answer was no until Motley Crue's smoking in the boys room came on, then I remembered the bathroom we used to smoke in and the print shop people used to smoke pot in the dark room. Beyond that I think it was a U shaped school with a basement for the shop classes. Nothing special about it to remember.

Fairly well. It and the school I taught at for over 25 years were contemporaries for design and construction (late 1950s/early 60s) and were very similar in layout even though they were in two different states.

So what about you? If you were asked to draw a map of your HS, at least as it was when you were in, how well could you do?
Probably fairly accurately, especially since my daughter since went there, also.

Small town, small school, grades 7 - 12, probably 700 students total.

I wouldn't remember room numbers but I'd remember how to get to each class I had in other ways:

"Walk up the stairs in the math building and it's the 2nd door on the right"

Graduated HS in 2006 and can still get to every single one of my classes by memory.

FWIW, my grad. class was 303 headcount.

I'm not good with drawing but I can get back to every classroom in which I've been.
