I visited my old high school last week – 50 years after graduating! We are both still in pretty good shape. The Class of ’63 was the first to complete all four years at El Capitan – it was a new high school in 1959 when we were freshmen and that was our claim to fame.
Lots of memories from these grounds.
As a fellow graduate (21 years after your footsteps adorned the halls), thanks for posting these. My hazy recollection of my single year there sees it in a pretty run-down condition, but clearly they’ve put some effort into sprucing up the place since then.
I visited my high school last year (class of 72) and it was torn down. Sob..what a shock to the system.
That is sad. It was so nice to walk the halls again.
Love the shot of the lockers!
Donna – it was good to see you again
Likewise John – and I wish we could have talked even longer. Your comments about how we were not taught how study very well were a revelation to me. I just thought it was me!
IT is Funny to see these photo’s of your youth. I think i am your nephew. Jan van Berkel, honselersdijk, holland
Welcome Jan – oh, the stories we could tell about Uncle John!!!
Your school looks lovely, (or maybe it is your photographic skills that make it look good?)
20 years after visiting my old school, nothing has changed, not even the wall color. It looks exactly the same and I guess pretty much like it looked when it was first built by the Greek junta in the early 70ies. Like a prison.
