To get the "small town" feel in the St. Charles area you should look out on the St. Charles / Warren County border at communities like Forristell, Wright City, Warrenton, or go a bit to the north and look at Moscow Mills or Troy. All are fairly convenient to St. Charles proper, but still far enough out to be small town instead of Suburban.

Cool The "High School" Question...


The "Where did you go to HS" question is NOT generally aimed at "weeding out" new arrivals from other states... it is generally used to determine what demographic you fit into in the St. Louis Metro scheme of things. Certain "pigeon hole" assumptions are made based on where you went to HS in the St. Louis metro region Including St. Charles. I.E. if you went to school at St. Charles West HS, you are probably a middle class white-flighter whose parents fled North St. Louis County in the 70s/80s, Parkway HS and you're an upper middle class white collar kid, if you say CBC you're old money, Priory you're old Catholic money, Ladue you're old Jewish money... if you say Lindberg, Affton, or Oakville HS you're a blue collar red-neck, if you say Riverview Gardens or Jennings HS and you're over 45 and white, people will say something like 'aww it's a shame what's happened to that area', If you say Soldan or Vashon, people will likely assume you have been in prison.

I'm not saying these stereotypes are right, fair, or accurate, but that's the origin of the High-School question in this part of MO.

If you say... "I'm not from Missouri" then folks will move on to other topics.
