I had the same first grade teacher that my mother did, only she was Miss Somebody when my mother had her, and Mrs. Somebody Else when I had her thirty years later.

Yes, I went to the same elementary/grammar school as my parents. There was not yet a high school in our town when they went, however. They took a train to high school in a town about 15 miles away. Back then, elementary/grammar ran through 9th grade, and then they went to high school. When I went, it was a Jr/Sr High School (the whole "middle school" deal wasn't a thing in our town, although my ex-husband went to school in a nearby town that did have "middle school".

After living elsewhere in adulthood, I returned to my hometown to raise my daughter. She went from K-12 in the same school system that I did except by then they called "Jr. High" (7th and 8th grades) "middle school", I guess to be trendy with the other towns in the area. LOL.

One district over from where I live now, they have Elementary, Intermediate, Middle, and Junior High schools all on the same sprawling campus. There are a few other elementary schools sprinkled around the district, and the HS has its own separate campus. Seems odd having so many different buildings each presumably with its own principal and clerical/janitorial staff, but there you go.

My home town in NJ, back in my day had 3 Junior High's and 2 High Schools but they are down to one HS and a couple of Middle Schools. No more JHS there.

Nope and that was completely on purpose by my mother. She absolutely refused to leave Virginia after she left the military to return home because her school experience in rural Arkansas was awful. Dad’s experience in North Carolina was just as bad.
