Texas Has 14 Of The Biggest High Schools In The US

I graduated with 12 people in my high school class in Nebraska, so it's hard for me to comprehend a high school where there are three thousands students.  That's huge!

School Supplies Aren’t Cheap – How Much Do You Spend?

It seems like school just ended, but now we're just a few weeks away from the fall semester.

I have a 5-year old that will start kindergarten on August 26th, and we're planning to do lots of shopping for school supplies and new clothes in August.  It's exciting in some ways to start school, but it's expensive!
