Yes, for a time my mother, as a child, lived in the house next door to the one I spent the first 12 yrs of my life. It was an older but nicely taken care of neighborhood. We lived with my grandparents then. We moved from Ohio to California in 1959. Looking at Google now my house along with almost every house on that street is gone. Somehow the houses all happened to burn down at various times. The school, which was on the next block, is gone.

My sister went to the same high school as my father and his brothers. She then went to the same college as my mother. All in NYC.

Everyone else went to different high schools and colleges.

I did not attend the same elementary school or high school as my parents. I spent some time at a community college my dad attended. It looked totally different when I went versus him.

I went to the same high school that my mother went to. The school is over a hundred years old and it's still standing.

I went to the same elementary school as my mother. I attended the same high school as my mother, father, uncle, and aunt. I actually had my Mom's math teacher as my math teacher, for a couple of years in high school. I'm unsure if my uncle ever finished high school, as WWII came along and he joined the Navy. I could see his name on our high school's WWII Roll of Honour every day, when I walked between classes.

I did my undergrad at the same university as my father, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. However, I did my graduate work at a university that none of our family had ever attended--after going to Mom's elementary school, Mom and Dad's high school, and being the fourth-generation of our family at undergrad university, it was kind of refreshing to attend a school that nobody else in our family ever attended.

My kids didn’t. I’m happy about that because their high school was much better than the one I attended (a subpar segregated high school in FL). Both went to different colleges than husband and Idid. They chose small private colleges, while we went to a huge Big 10 university.

My grandkids are going to the same high school their mom did in VA.
