Schools I’ve Attended

Those Places Thursday
My History

By Don Taylor

I often see articles and blogs that remind readers to write about their own life. Something that several suggest is to write about schools that you have attended. Most people have a few schools, but I have 15 schools that I have attended.  It is more of a book rather than an article or two. Looking back, I have attended seven elementary schools, one junior high school, three high schools, and four colleges. So, I thought I’d examine the school’s history and see what I can remember of my attending.


For each of the schools I attended, I plan to look at the school’s history and see what memories I can jog loose about me and my attending that school.


[1] Scheffer – If you had asked me before I drafted this page, I would have said I attended Schaeffer Elementary. Researching for this series of articles I learned I attended Scheffer Elementary. I double checked my DD Form 398 – Statement of Personal History, which indicated Schaeffer when I filled it out back in 1968. Also, the form only included spaces for five schools; I had to continue on another page.
