Inspired by my varsity football team: When you were in high school did you hangout with kids in school at least 2 grades above you often?
Yes, even as an introvert I still meet a lot of people doing activities and sports
I went to a brand new expansion high school (New Trier Township HS had been around for decades, but they opened New Trier West in September 1965, with only freshmen and sophomores). I was in the first full four-year class. So there was only one
class ahead of me. All of us in the music department got along great.
As a sophomore I was friends with several seniors. We were in the drama club and productions together. Also my brother was a senior then.
Never, in fact i was the opposite, i tended to be with people one or two years younger
I attended a small private school, so it was common.
One year older, for sure. Four of us were put in a 9th grade math class when we were in 8th grade, continued with them through their senior year, & were good friends with some of them. I hung out with a couple people 2 years ahead as part of the
school newspaper staff, but not outside of that, so I voted no.
Not really. I interacted with them often in classes and in extracurriculars but my friends were all in my grade with the exception of one being in the grade below.
The theatre allowed all grade levels to call one another friend.
Almost all of the juniors and seniors love me, but there are only a couple that I actually call my friends.
Never. My grade and the grade below me.
