What High Schools and Colleges Did You Go To?

I wonder if any of us are alums of the same schools?

My HS and undergraduate colleges:
Greenwich High School, Greenwich, CT
Simon’s Rock College, Great Barrington, MA
Pitzer College, Claremont, CA

And you?

I bet I’m the only Doper that went to Laker High School in Pigeon, Michigan… serving the towns of Elkton, Pigeon, and Bay Port. (And still only 105 in my graduating class of 1986.)

Also went to Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, and University of North Carolina Asheville.

I went to probably one of the more famous high school campuses in the world:

Palisades High School, Pacific Palisades, CA.

It has been featured in a lot of TV shows and movies. Most recently it was used as the school setting for Freaky Friday, starring Lindsay Lohan and Jaime Lynn Curtis.

And college:

Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo, CA

Challis High School, Challis Idaho
Bishop Kelly High School, Boise Idaho
Golden West College, Huntington Beach California
and finally
University of Southern California, Los Angeles California

I can guarentee that only one other doper went to Challis HS, and I introduced him to the board.

I went to Westmont High School in Campbell, California.

I did my lower division college stuff at West Valley College in Saratoga, and I currently attend San Jose State University.

Sometimes it’s sad that my entire education took place within a 10 mile radius.

Righetti High School, Santa Maria CA
UC Berkeley '95
San Jose State '99

Chillicothe High School, Chillicothe OH ('85)
Wittenberg University, Springfield OH ('89)
Penn State University, University Park PA ('91 MA)

Anderson High School, Anderson, Indiana, class of 1967
University of Evansville (Indiana,) one year and one quarter, 1968-70

Culver City High School, '84.
UC Riverside, '88
USC, '91
Claremont Graduate University, '02

(On the latter: right next-door, Ink!)


I spent a lot of time at Harvey Mudd. I was way more a Mudder than a Pitzer person.

Plantation High School, Plantation, FL
Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL
School of Hard Knocks, Manytowns, USA

I dropped out of Treadwell High School back in '88.
Got my GED and went on to drop out of State Technical Institute (later renamed something else I can’t remember) in '91.
Then I registered at University of Memphis in '94 but I don’t think I finished a single class.

It’s the schools, I tell you. They just weren’t FUN enough.

Oh my, the list is long.

High School
Rumsey Hall School, Washington, CT '90
St. George’s School, Newport, RI '91
Greenwich High School, Greenwich, CT (finally graduated) '93

Western State College of Colorado, Gunnison, CO (Wasted State) '94
Norwalk Community College, Norwalk, CT '95
Valley Forge Military College Class of '98 (graduated here too, AA.)

In most of those places I couldn’t tell you where my classes were. But I had a good time. I’m curious to see if there are any dopers who’ve been where I have.

Lowry High School - Winnemucca, Nevada (9th grade only)
Tooele High School - Tooele, Utah (class of '02)

Starting this fall:
Seattle Central Community College

Yeah, not too lengthy. I went to a lot of elementary schools and middle schools though.

Dropped out of Central High School - Grand Junction, CO

Graduated from Antelope Valley College, aka Tumbleweed Tech 2004 (AA). I know that Exploding Kitchen goes there now. And no, I didn’t stop in between for a GED, although I think they make you do that now if you haven’t got a diploma.

Filling out the UCLA application again in October, I imagine they’ll let me in a second time.


West Hollywood (elementary), graduated from 6th grade in 1969. Cool area, two blocks south of Sunset Strip in the 1960s.

Emerson JHS '72. Now it’s called a ‘middle school’…and they wear uniforms! (In Westwood).

University High School '75. (In West L.A). Used in lots of location shoots.

UC San Diego (Revelle College) '80
UCLA Graduate School of Library and Information Science '84

Almost forgot:

University of Gottingen (Junior Year Abroad program). Quite a number of renowned worthies have been to that one.

High School: Lancaster Catholic High School, Lancaster, PA, Class of '87

University: University of Pittsburgh, Sept 1987-April 1990

Dang, I must have hit something wrong, because I wasn’t finished yet!

Anyway, after that:
Universitetet i Trondheim, AVH, August 1991-December 1993. Finally got that darn degree!

Tallulah Falls School, Tallulah Falls, GA - class of '78
LaGrange College, LaGrange, GA - class of '82
