I attended public school, got expelled in grade 12, went on to a college for Computer Repair and Network Maintenance.  Finished, worked in the industry for a month, got tired of it and went to University for a Degree in Popular Music and Jazz. 

 

The lesson here is, High-School is useless B)

I'm not sure how it works in USA but what will you do/ what can you do for living without college education? O.o

Right now I'm a housewife (I know that's not fashionable, but so what? I'm happy) I've worked for years though, so I don't see what the problem of not going to college is. Besides, on Saturday (Feb First) I turn 35! I must be doing something right!

I like you already. :3 Are you learning to play some instruments maybe?

Nice. I was just curious. In Poland they ask for higher education even if you're just going to work as a janitor. x.x

Started out in a private school, at 3rd grade I went to public until 7th grade when I went back to a private school; than I went back to public at 9th grade! Continued to this day, but the high school sends me to college in the morning classes, where I also take online classes! A little complicated and broad, but it has worked out.

I majored in Performance on Drums, and I think I graduated in 2012.  Actually I was at the mall yesterday looking at violins, those things are so beast, I might pick a cheap one up and fool around with it.  I also play the piano, mostly because I had to learn it for ear training and theory (Those things suuuck!).

Every musician has to learn playing piano (which sucks, I agree x.x ) and when it comes to violin... I have no idea how can people learn which sound is where exactly on these strings. I was playing it entirely basing on intuition and good hearing for 6 years and passed every year without knowing where each sound is. XD But after all that I think that the most important thing to play it AND enjoy it is having long enough fingers. x.x Without them long enough it's a torture.

 

Anyway, good luck and sowwe for offtop.

I'm in college, I'm in my 2nd year of the Fish and Wildlife Technician program and when I'm finished this program I may return for either Sustainable Agriculture, Conservation Law Enforcement, or Outdoor Adventure (all of which require a college diploma as pre-requisite).

I attended (occasionally) public school in Ontario, went on to the University of Waterloo to pick up my first degree (Bachelors of Applied Science, Chemical Engineering), accumulated credits towards a couple of other degrees and diplomas (History, Architecture, Computer Science) whenever the opportunity arose. So on and so forth.

Really you went to waterloo?

My older sister went there too! :o

Yup. Ages ago. Graduated in '92.

 

Cool, UW was a good place. I recommend it, even though they're constantly bugging me to give them more money. ;)

I had one year of preschool before I did K-12 in public school. Between moving and school districts changing their borders, I didn't stay at one single school more than 3 years. After high school I went to college for automotive management and dropped out after one semester. After coming back home I went to community college for gen ed and dropped out after one semester again. A few years later I went to the EMS academy but graduated this time. Third time's the charm I suppose.

Went to both a publicly-funded primary and secondary school. Did A-levels at 6th form and currently studying Civil Engineering at university. For the first half of the first year of secondary school I did attend a private school, though only out of necessity.

I was publically educated by the state of New York. It also turned out I'm smarter than the public schools in the state of New York. I was publically educated but had multiple opportunities to be transfered to private schools. But most required a uniform and the others required me to move so I stayed public. A little more casual but the system is more regimented. Meant to teach the majority more than help the individual.

Public schools until University.

 

Although Uni is a stormy time for me, because I feel I'm being thrown into a 'mold'. Everyone around pressurize me to finish it, but truth is after I do, I'll still have issues finding a job.

I'm considering going the hard way around, dropping out, learning languages and certain skills on my own and living without higher education. I know it sounds crazy, but... it's achievable. Although it'll be hard time.

I've only been at a public school. From Kindergarten to 10th Grade. But not the same one.

I went to Jenkins Creek Elementary in Kent, Washington from Kindergarten through 2nd Grade.

After that, I moved to Elger Bay Elementary in Camano Island, Washington for 3rd and 4th Grades

Lastly, I've went to Shiner ISD in Shiner, Texas since 5th Grade.

  • 1 year later...

I have gone to a few different private schools and one public school. I had a period of time where I was home-schooled. I have also taken online classes. I am currently taking CLEP tests to earn college credit, but I'm not actually "in" college.
