Just seeing which famous people went to people's high schools here. Doesn't have to be the same class either.

I went to George Washington High School in San Francisco. The most notable names are Johnny Mathis and Danny Glover.

Umm... Dr. William Foege. He was a huge part of the smallpox eradication in the 70s. Lol. I don't think anyone else famous has come from my village.

My high school had a lot of famous people because it has an international curriculum and a premier performers program, so it's flexible for actors and musicians.

- Tom Green (who visited in 2000 or 2001 and brought Monica Lewinsky with him. It was weird)
- Tom Cruise
- Bryan Adams
- Fedor Andreev (figure skater - known in Canada and Russia)

I had to Google this b/c I was curious LOL.

According to Wikipedia, there have been a number of MLB players that graduated, actress Hilary Van **** (she was there at the same time I was) and an olympian/para-olympian that graduated a few years before me but I remembered her name when I saw it (Marla Runyan)

High school - Ethel Skakel Kennedy, RFK's wife. Jane Fonda. Otherwise just a bunch of kids of ceo's and other not really famous people except maybe Diana Ross's daughter.

College - Also Jane Fonda! lol. Meryl Streep, Lisa Kudrow, Jackie Onassis, Stacy London, Noah Baumbach, Mike D from the beastie boys (dropped out). Anne Hathaway was there at the same time I was but didn't ever graduate, and so was Samuel L Jackson's daughter and Tom Hanks's daughter.

Crazy! Were u there?
I was not there during the shooting.

It occurred the end of my Sophmore year in '98. I actually went to a private Christian School of about 35 students total until the end of my Sophmore year. Then I transferred to Thurston the beginning of my Junior year. Right after they had had the shooting. Crazy huh?

The kid murdered his parents the night before and then drove to school and went nuts. He shot several students and killed two.
