I'm from Ontario. We've got it all, K-6 schools, K-8 schools, 7-8 schools, 7-12 schools and 9-12 schools. I did K-6, 7-8, 9-12. Frankly, I thought middle school made sense, it quarantined the edgy pre-teens from the rest of the population. That, or 7-12 schools, because then the pre-teens would learn some humility, being stuck in the same building as kids who can drive or shave.

Dang, almost had one on the line....
but seriously, I live in Montclair, so I am surprised to see that that happened near me. Funny, basically the same thing happened to me at a school in Pomona.
#40 - mrfrreshh (08/31/2016) [-]
yeah that kinda happened here. but it went from K-8 then you either went to the public high school or the catholic high school. 9s and 10s were the edge lords in high school.

The catholic school board and public school board are totally separate here, you can go to catholic school right from the get-go. The only kids I knew who transferred to the catholic board were the town bicycles that had concerned parents and were sent to study on their knees. I knew one kid that transferred from the catholic board to public, but that was because his parents were muslims and had assumed that since christians and muslims worship the same deity that it was as close to a religious education as he would get. They pulled him into the public stream when he converted to catholicism and then came out of the closet the same month. He was a weird guy.

We still had to say the lords prayer even though I went to public schools since Kindergarten. got in trouble because I refused to say it.
User avatar
#64 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
That's rough. Forcing prayer on kids in a religious school makes a certain amount of sense, since that's kind of the point. But you'd think that public schools would be more cosmopolitan. In my school, kids had to excuse themselves to the hallway if they wanted to pray, and they had to keep it down so that they wouldn't disrupt the classes. Then again, my gradeschool made us sing the national anthem every day. I was happy to, but it doesn't mean anything if someone has to be made to do it.

One of the few States I haven't been in. Did your schools have a cafeteria and milk money and all that noise? Those were cliches in all the TV shows and movies about schools that I had ever seen, but I never went to a school that had milk money and my highschool was the only one to have a cafeteria.
User avatar
#24 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
yea elementary, middle, and highschool all had cafeterias where you could buy food and milk but honestly the food was shit

User avatar
#25 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
I'd heard the legends about cafeteria food. But by the time I was in Highschool I was so used to making a lunch and bringing it with me that the cafeteria was only a convenient place to sit down. Even when I felt like spending money on food, the school was across the road from a really awesome deli, so I just went there. The food was cheaper, and probably better than the "prison-grade crap" the other kids griped about.
User avatar
#26 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
so wait if you didnt have a cafeteria where did you eat lunch? in highschool we werent allowed to leave the school grounds during school hours so it was either cafeteria food, bring your own, or starve.
User avatar
#31 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
In grade school we ate our lunches in our classrooms, either bringing our own, or we could fill out a "pizza form" (we were across the street from a pizzeria). The kids would jot down what they wanted, paying a premium compared to what the pizza place charged the school, and the school dropped off the order sheets in the morning and the pizzeria went to work. In middle school, it was the same thing, but since we no longer had dedicated classrooms (we had "forms" that traveled as a herd from class to class) we had a dedicated "lunchroom". The key difference between this and a cafeteria being that they didn't provide food, besides the pizzas ordered that morning. It was just a place to eat. In highschool, we had a cafeteria but were also allowed to leave the property during lunch hour and other free periods. No more pizza forms though, you had to go get it yourself. I went to the aforementioned deli when I was feeling decadent.

#33 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
that sounds so much nicer than what I had. in all 3 schools we had a cafeteria which Im guessing was like the one you had in highschool, massive room for tables and eating and a small area in the back for them to make the food and us to buy it. in highschool we were allowed to roam the school and the school yard, still not leaving the grounds but we were able to sit outside or in the hallways or the library no food allowed in the library tho Pizza or anything being delivered to the school was considered a special event and almost never happened except near the end of the school year and holidays and even then it was teacher dependent so if you had a mean teacher you didnt get pizza unless you were friends with a nice teacher and excused yourself to the restroom to go visit them and get yourself some
User avatar
#36 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
It's always the little differences that make places seem foreign. Funnily enough, there were about a dozen American students at my higschool, none of them ever mentioned not being allowed to leave the grounds, though it would explain why they all ate the cafeteria food in the cafeteria every single day. I just thought it was because they were more comfortable talking to each other.
User avatar
#38 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
yea if they weren't told they could leave they prolly just assumed they couldn't. Did you have police stationed at your highschool?
User avatar
#41 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
We had police stationed at ever level of our schooling. What I though was funny was that my middle school had twice as many cops as my highschool, but a third of the population.
User avatar
#42 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
now thats interesting, I only had one officer stationed at the highschool. no other level had one.
User avatar
#46 - batmanuel (08/31/2016) [-]
We only had one permanent officer in my highschool, but others showed up from time to time for assemblies, events and career fairs. I think they were mostly there to remind the students going into the real world that police were people too. My middle school required that the cops use the buddy-system, though.

#27 - fourfangedferret (08/31/2016) [-]
Like not being allowed to leave ever stopped anyone. They put up a big ol fence around our school to stop kids going to the shops, but everyone just jumped the fence.

well there really werent any shops to go to either

You didnt have recesses? In Norway we have it all the way up to universities and maybe even there (I havent been to any, so I dunno)
Taking a break from studies to get some fresh air, water or whatever the fuck it is, is very important.
User avatar
#149 - the fuzzball (08/31/2016) [-]
college was a bit different you can chose when your classes are so you can schedule your own recess, but after grades 1-5 there is no more official "recess" only a 30-40 minute lunch break.
User avatar
#163 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Damn, in elementary school we had 10 minutes after each schoolhour, and from 8-10th grade it changed to 15 mins and double school hours, and a halfhour lunch.

I think each schoolhour was like 45 mins, atleast from 2-7th grade, the 1990 bunch were the last to skip first grade
User avatar
#164 - the fuzzball (09/01/2016) [-]
im not going to lie i have no clue what you mean by schoolhour
User avatar
#165 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Haha, 45 minutes and 15 minute recess (atleast what I recall from memory, I'm soon 26 so it's been a while)
User avatar
#167 - the fuzzball (09/01/2016) [-]
so wait you had multiple recesses?
User avatar
#168 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Yes, all the way up to what we call Videregående, it's whats after your highschool thing I believe?
we have
elementary/grunnskole 1-7th grade
Ungdomsskole(youthschool?? dunno lol) 8-10th grade
Then comes Videregående which is where you either choose more common shit to become a desk junkie or high education, or a profession like carpenter, welding, mechanic etc.
User avatar
#170 - the fuzzball (09/01/2016) [-]
interesting

our school system goes
elementary 1-5th
middle 6-8
high 9-12
and then college
User avatar
#171 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Ah, then we're not too different on the years, after videregående which would be your college you can take apprenticeship for 2 years and get your official title in that profession(if you didnt choose higher edu classes, which are super boring imo)
User avatar
#173 - the fuzzball (09/01/2016) [-]
should also be noted that after highschool, it starts to cost large sums of money to continue with education.
User avatar
#172 - the fuzzball (09/01/2016) [-]
we sort of have something like that I think, we call them "trade schools" and they are usually taken after 2 years at college i think so yea that sounds pretty similar. Im not too too familiar with it after the college level cuz I only did two semesters of college and failed everything both times and decided to not continue with any higher education.
User avatar
#178 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Well what do you want to be? If you dont need college for it then screw that
User avatar
#177 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
Yeah college costing wouldn't be a problem, except the fact that it bankrupts you. Like how did that inflation happen and why was it allowed? Do the politicians not see they're destroying the future?
User avatar
#169 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
And after that we have "highschool" directly translated and universities, they are usually 3 or 5 years long which grant you bachelor and master in whatever field
User avatar
#166 - redknull (09/01/2016) [-]
And it's 7 am here so I just got up, my head is a bit woozy still

Yeah, 40 minutes a day which was bullshit, because we didn't any play-structures, just a football field and a tennis court. . Why, did you not?
