How many schools did you go to throughout your schooling?
I'm talking about through high school.

Here's how mine break down:

For 2nd grade and earlier, went to 3 different Montessori schools
For 3rd-7th grades, went to one private school
For 8th grade, went to a Catholic school
For high school, went to another Catholic school

So 6 schools total.

5. That's neat
You must have really liked that school.

I would have stayed in the private school for 8th grade if the principal hadn't let things get out of control as far as the bad news kids they let in.

One elementary k-5
One middle school 6-8
One high school 9-12
One university 4 years
One grad school 1 year

I guess one could say I finish what I start...

I went to a private college - Ursinus. But now I wish I would have gone to Villanova, which also accepted me.

19. Only one private school
I expect I'll be going there all through high school. Then when I graduate, I'd be going there from Pre-k to 12th grade. Whoaaaaa

22. Eight
One primary school in a timber-industry town
Another pimary school, out in the boonies
Yet another primary school, in a suburban area
One more primary school that also took me through to high school age (kids from preschool to 13 there), a classic one-room style country schoolhouse way out in the boonies
High school -- single sex school (coed not an option...great academics but probably, combined with my semi-wilderness upbringing, set me back a while with the wimmens and all that)
One university, one graduate degree
Moved to the US -- took a few classes at community college (we did them in high school, where I come from, but US grad schools required them on a tertiary transcript)
Second university, second and third graduate degrees

I don't have an undergraduate degree.
