In my spare time I like to make maps which are basically stages for video games and I found to get started and used to it, basing it off my old high school was easy as I can still remember every nook and cranny of it and I have been out of HS for a LONG time.

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?

Perfectly. It wasn't large (800 students).

About ten years later, we went there for a company picnic for which the pool (new after I graduated) and grounds were rented. It was a peculiar thrill to push my daughter around the place in a stroller... beer in hand.

Perfectly. Though now it has been completely renovated, redesigned and and added on to. There is very little resemblance to the building I went to school in.

Pretty well, though high school was sort of something to get over with. Details of specific spots are tied to events. Even farther back to elementary school. I can still describe the minute details of the stairs I attempted to ride my Dad's 10 speed bike down (instead of take the longer way around them)

Some of what I remember ain't there. A building from the early 1900s where I had my freshman classes is gone. Replaced by a new one I have seen from the outside but never gone into.

Same here for my old high school.

And after retiring as the principal of a middle school, they've been trying to get me to come back to visit for years, and I refuse to. I helped plan the current renovation, and there is very little left of the original floor plan. So the memories are the staff and kids, not the bricks.

I Remember the 'layout' VERY clearly, as we stormed the building and rode around inside the HS on our motorcycles! (It's good to know ALL the ways OUT when being chased!)

I remember my kindergarten / elementary layout too,,, trudging up those worn wooden steps (3 flights) carrying a FULL lunch tray with glass milk bottles. And big principle awaiting at the bottom next to trash can (he would send you BACK to the room if any food was left on your tray... no 'Milk Carton Hiding' with glass bottles!.

Paddle in hand in case you tripped and spilt the tray / milk. Yes, there was a LOT of crying over spilt milk!

By far not my WORST school situation... That was middle school OMG, so miserable (having to go to town for school). By HS I was working 3 jobs and didn't bother much with going to school. (that was a good thing)

Every School... I knew the quickest way OUT!

I remember it perfectly. Plus I'm helped by the fact that I have visited a few times recently. But even without the recent visits, I remember it very well.

Pretty much not at all. I have memories of some specific classrooms and locations within the building based on various events that happened there, but not the building as a whole.

To me, high school was a right of passage and, for that reason, I remember nothing about the layout!
