We walked to elementary school, and then when it was time for Junior High (I think this is now called Middle School?) the distance was a bit further but still walkable. My mother was a teacher there, though, so we benefitted from that, often getting rides with her in the morning, although on the days she had after-school meetings and such we still had to walk home. When we were ready for high school, it was easily walkable, so back to getting ourselves there and back each day, and of course if some kids had after-school activities some days there were few of us walking home together in the evening. There were some kids from other neighborhoods who once they turned 16 and had a car of their own drove themselves and friends to school, but I don't know if that happened in my neighborhood or not since most of the kids there were around my age or younger. Also, my family moved from there at the beginning of my junior year. to an entirely different area and for the first time in my life I experienced riding a school bus each day.....
