  • Elementary school - Less than 1/4 mile away. In good weather, I walked. Junior HIgh - About 3 miles away. I was dropped off and picked up by my parents or the parents of my best friend. High School - About 5 1/2 miles away. My freshman year I was dropped off and picked up my either my parents or my best friend's parents. My sophomore year on, I drove.
  • Jr. High, 4 miles (rural area) rode my bike. High school, 3 miles, mostly rode bicycle til I could drive legally, but drove or rode motorcycle many times anyway.
  • We moved so many times, it's hard to say. I lived a few blocks from school most of the time, and walked, even in the snow (I hate snow). One year we moved before the end of the school year, and I rode the city bus clear across town for the final few weeks.
  • First elementary School -- Rode bus Second elementary School/middle school/jr High -- walked & skateboarded to bus stop and then rode bus Other Jr. High -- Rode bus High School -- Rode bus to school, got rides home with parents, friends or boyfriend
  • Walked about 1/2 mile to elementary school. Usually bicycled 1.5 miles to junior high High school was about 4 miles away. My father typically dropped me off on his way to work, then I walked or rode a bus home.
  • Bus :)
  • My elementary was a few blocks away. I walked there and sometimes biked. My junior high was about a mile away. My parents drove me. My high school was about 3 miles away. My parents drove me again. University was 5 miles away. I took the bus.
  • I was amongst the luck few. Our school was exactly 10 minutes walking distance away from home. My best friend, who lived bang opposite and I used to walk together.
  • by bus
  • For my first term in Primary School, I lived on the other side of town to it, so my Grandad always gave me and my cousins a lift in his car. I was always the last in, a tradition that I have kept to this day. Halfway through my first year, I moved to within a 10 minute walk of my school. Four years later, I moved to another primary school that was literally next to my house. Now, my high school is only a three minute walk away, yet I'm still late every day.
  • In elementary school all eight years, I lived in the suburbs of the windy city Chicago. Through snow, ice, rain and wind, in four different schools I walked no less than one mile there and one mile back home. Finally, when I was in high school I rode a bus.
  • The two elementary schools were just under 1 mile. I walked. The high school was about 3 miles away. I walked in good weather, my mother drove us if it was raining, extremely cold or snowing.
  • I lived half a mile from my first elementary school and a few miles away from my second, and took the bus to both. I live a couple blocks away from my home junior high, and a few miles away from the junior high I go to, and I take the bus. I live a mile-ish from the high school I'm going to go to, and am going to take the bus until I can drive.
  • I lived there. We all had cycles at school.
  • My elementary school is 1.5 blocks away from my house- my mom drove me in the mornings and our baby-sitter would pick me up, my middle school is about 1/2 a mile from my house, my mom drove me in the morning and I would walk home, my high school is about 1.5 miles from my house and again my mom drove me and I would walk home. * college is about 9 miles from my home and I drive there. :)
  • Right now I live within walking distance to my old middle school. It is literally off a path at the end of my circle..I used to live farther from it and took the bus.
  • In our state, if you homeschool, you are considered to be a private school. So I guess technically we live in a school. When I was in elementary and Jr High, I lived on a ward line. That meant I was as far from a school as I could be and still go to that school. I went to elementary in one ward and Jr High in the other. It was a mile to either school and I walked. In High School, we moved to a farm in the state where I now reside. If you lived 6/10ths of a mile from the road, the bus would pick you up at the house. But my stepfather wouldn't let the bus turn around in our driveway, so I walked to the road, 6/10ths of a mile.
  • Always public transportation.
  • Elementary school was about one block around and down and I always walked. Junior high was much further, about 2-3 miles and I walked to school unless I was late and could get a ride. High school was VERY far, about 30 miles and I rode the bus real early in the morning or else my boyfriend(who became my husband) would drive me to school
  • Usually Nanny drove us.
  • Elementary school was a few hundred feet from my home. As such, I always walked to elementary school. I rode on public transit vehicles when I went to junior high school and high school.
  • I transferred school 20 times. Other than the first day, I don't remember my parents ever driving me to school. I took the bus or walked sometimes 6 city blocks in the snow in elementary school. I remember having a 'cloak room' where we hung our snowy wet clothes to dry before we put them back on to go home. And I wore two pair of long pants and pulled the ones covered in snow off when I got there.
  • 12 miles. The bus didn't even go that far. There was a closer school, but I got stabbed there and had to transfer. My mom would drive me there in the morning on her way to work and then my dad would drive me home on his way back from work. Once I had my license, I drove myself to and fro.
