Rah, rah, ree! Kick 'em in the knee! Well, that might not have been your school's fight song, but we would like to know which one it was. Tell us all about your school years, and we'll be able to tell you the decade which you attended. Did your school still teach home economics, or was that a thing of the past before you got there?

Throughout this quiz, we'll pick your brain and your memory about the way things worked at your school. We'll cover everything from the first bell until you got home from school to watch the latest after-school special. All you need to do is look back through the good old days, and respond with the most accurate answer. We promised not to pass or fail you. In fact, there's no grading at all.
