How diverse was your elementary school and high school? I went to a public elementary school in Mississauga, Ontario. It was 60% south asian. Most other kids were carib, arab or yugoslavian. Anglo canadian kids, including canadian blacks were a small minority. My high school was almost identical.
Elementary school=100% white
Middle school= same
High School= 99.3% white (1 bangladeshi kid and 3 black kids)
New High School=65% white (3 black kids, a few Mexicans, and a bunch of Puerto Ricans.
Most of primary there was just a black girl who was adopted. The same year I graduated from that school I think the talley was up to 3 blacks and 1 turk.
Then I went to gymnasium and there was just a couple of arabs I think. Can't really recall if I ever saw anything else. Maybe some southern europeans.
I think I was lucky in a lot of ways.
Rural Eastern Kentucky. Whitest part of America bar none.
It's also full of prescription drug abuse, alcoholism, black lung, "mountain top removal" mines and strip malls. I miss it all the time.
When I lived in California it was pretty much 50% white, 30% hispanic, 15% black and 5% asian both in elementary and middle school, and when I moved to Washington most people in my high school were white, with only like 8 black kids, a few mexicans and asians, and a couple muslims.
when i started in kindergarten the class was majority white, and as i got older the classes became more enriched. my grade 12 year was probably about 50% white, 30% chink, 10% curry, and then a small mix of other ethnicities.
0% only 1 went to my school
first high school
1% most were mixed
second high school
0% only only 6 went to my school and none of them were fully black.
it was very diverse
there were serbs with us, some czechs, a few hungarians i think, bunch of bosnians and a few slovenes too
we were all cool about it, like no one was allowed to touch the serb kids we protected them, then in highschool there were a few muslims and they were all total bros
there was even a gypsy or two at some point, but they are always problematic
>there were serbs with us, some czechs, a few hungarians i think, bunch of bosnians and a few slovenes too
sound like the group of friends I hung around with

Elementary School: 75% Hispanic, 15% Black, 7% White, and others being less than 5%
Middle School 1: 49% Hispanic, 49% Black, and others being less than 5%
Middle School 2: 95% White, and others being less than 5%
Middle School 3: 50% Black, 20% White, 15% Hispanic, 10% Asian, and others being less than 5%
High School 1: 60% Black, 20% White, 10% Hispanic, 8% Asian, and others being less than 5%
High School 2: 33% White, 33% Black, 17% Asian, 15% Hispanic, and others being less than 5%.
I'm white, still think there's nothing wrong with diversity.
My elementary school was 92% hispanic. I know because I looked it up at the time. So, not very diverse. Pic is some kids from the same school district and that's pretty similar to how my school looked.
The middle school I went to is currently 84% hispanic, 7% Filipino, 4% white, 2% black, 1% asian. Which pretty much reenforced my perception that everyone I knew growing up was either mexican or filipino. Also it's apparently 32% English language learners.
The high school I went to is 71% hispanic, 18% white, 4% black, 3% filipino, 2% asian and 20% ESL students.
I'm white, so while growing up I was a minority at school. It was okay. In high school it changed because we got alot of students from the neighboring town, which had more white people in it.
Also, I'm not sure why these stats I'm looking up separate "Asian" and "Filipino". I knew some Hawaiians and Samoans so I dunno why they don't get included as their own thing.
I'm from California.
There were a couple of other white kids in my primary school. When I was in secondary school, I was usually the only whit Brit in my classes though.
Most of the kids were either Asian or black Africa/Caribbean.
I'd say 90% white for all of them, with East asians and the odd Indian or Maori being the only other group. Maybe 85% for high school since they had an international department.
Two public schools and one semi private in ChCh
Would say maybe 5-10% non-german euros (poles, russians, balkan mostly) and maybe 2-5% darkies (not durka muslims from mena/turkey and i think there was an african too.) and a handful of vietnamese
Inner London, Tower Hamlets.
Some London boroughs are pretty multi-culti (pic related).
Grew up in a ghetto mix of white trash and Muslims and various other sorts.
We were like 9 white kids in a class of 24, 4 boys (myself included) and 5 girls.
I remember the Muslim kids being super pissy in religion and biology classes because "that's not what the imam says", and them absolutely refusing to stand up when we sang the national song once a week every Monday.
Can't imagine what that shithole is like now.
Luckily my high school was mostly white and we had great banter between the guys. except that one guy who was gay and preferred to hang with his own groupie of girls.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, about the ESL students...
In high school I had to take a math class one level behind most of the kids in my grade, so I wound up getting placed in the ESL math class where about half of the instruction was done in Spanish, haha. So my Spanish really improved that year.
I'm really happy I grew up this way, I really enjoy watching different cultures merging and interacting, I really like being around multiple languages all the time and people from different countries all the time. It's fun. I'm not trying to tell other people what to do I'm just saying in my experience I had a nice time, 10/10 would multikulti again.
>I was going to say Tower Hamlets or Luton were just about the only places I could see it happening.
Nah, could be a few other places up north too. I mean, the city of Leicester is statistically 40% Asian now, and far more within younger demographics.
>How was the high school itself? Was the ofsted ranking utter shite?
Nah, it was a really good school with the highest Ofsted rating. You'd think it'd be shit, but for some reason London has really good state schools compared to the rest of the country, even in poor and multi-culti areas.
I went to a Catholic school, so fortunately, no muslims. The only "immigrants" we had were a Colombian kid, and the son of yugo immigrants who fled the war. In the later years a chinese kid and an Indian girl who had been adopted.
This, only reason I learned English really well when moving to America was that I was really good at math and science science so I barely had any ESOL and went to classes with all white and black people and my English went from 1% to 95% in that first year.
everyone was normal, there were only 3 gypsies in the whole school. Had the only black in the school in my class up to the 6th grade, but then his parents moved
of course, this is Portugal, so some of the normal people had darker skins
Little down in Ohio.
For my class, most of us knew each other from elementry school all the way to graduation. We had two blacks, they were fine, very friendly, smart and polite. But we had one mutt who tried to act hard, wore goofy baggy shirts. People thought he was tough till some girl let slip he had a shrimp dick.
I think we had /maybe/ one or two Asians but I couldn't tell you for sure.
first to fourth grade we had a single gypsy and a kid with downs. The rest were all Bulgarian
Fifth to seventh was entirely homogenous
In eighth to twelveth grade I had a half-lebanese girl, a half-vietnamese lad and a Jordanian lad in my class. The other classes were entirely homogenous The school had a tatar Russian/German teacher. A half-negress and another vietnamese boy began attending the school when I reached 12th grade.
