Iused to believe along with other kids at my school(French Camp Elementry California). That there was a dead body under the tracks behind the school and some kind of killer that would not for some reason come into the school fence. I now look back and think this was probably started by the teachers to keep us from playing by the back fence.

In my elementary school, we had tiled flooring. But there was this one faded spot where the tiles where a different color from all the rest. I remember believing that this was the grave of a child who had been murdered there long ago and had been burried underneath the floor. Especially because this discolored area was the same size as me! :( All my friends believed the myth too. So we'd always walk on the other side of the hallway!

When I was in elementary school, I had to do a monthly IQ test. Every time the guys from the Education Department came to my school and asked me to do the test they said "Wow" when they saw that my IQ was nearby 140. I was very worried about that because I thought 140 was too high (like blood pressure) and I always asked them to check my answers again. They always said, "for god's sake, you expect more points !??!?"

I was starting at a new school and there were animal skulls hanging up on a fence inside the school. Mum told me that they were from the children who were bad. I was always really sure to be nice to all the teachers after that.

When I was younger, around 8 or 9, I believed that you needed to be a certain height to graduate to the next grade. I, being the shortest in my class, was sure I had to repeat my grade until I was the right height. When I cried to my parents about it they assured me that it depended on how smart you were and not your height.

Before i started school, i thought that "English Class" was a class where you learned how to speak english. I always thought that i would not have to take english class since i already spoke english. I thought that until I started school.

In 2nd gr. we had a "Fire Safety Day" and fireman came to our school. Now I had no idea of what to do, so I listened carefully. He said we should "Stop, Drop, and Roll" but I heard it as "Stop Droppenrole" and thought "Droppenrole" was a guy who went everywhere started fires. I believed this till I was in 7th grade.

When I was in elementary school all the students had to take a state-wide multiple choice test near the end of the school year. Occasionally one of the choices would be "All of the Above." I took things completely litteraly as a child and I had no idea what it meant. If I was sure I didn't know the correct answer I would pick "All of the Above" because it made it made as much sense as anything else. Now I think the tests should really be explained in more detail. "All of the Above" isn't known to every child.

When we'd go past our primary school in the evening the lights would always be on. My dad told my sister and i that at night a whole new set of children would go to the school and be taught there with a totally new set of teachers and even diffrent wall displays so they didn't know about the 'day children.' These according to my dad were the children of people who worked nights but we weren't allowed to say anything because it was supposed to be a secret. I belived him for such a long time and even looked for the wall displays of the night children.

The old Incredible Hulk show was a big favorite in my grade school. Enough so that I sincerely believed that the Hulk himself lived in the girl's bathroom, and that was why you couldn't go in there.

My teachers were pretty obvious playing favorites, so it made perfect sense that the girls would get to know about the Hulk, and we wouldn't.

I think I stopped believing in this one, embarassingly enough, because everyone started being 'way into The Dukes of Hazzard instead.

When I was younger I thought that only smart people could go to college. I fully expected all college students to be brilliant, well-dressed & have perfect hygiene. I was shocked to find students who ask stupid questions in class, don't know how to dress for the weather, and have greasy hair and smelled. That is when I learned that book smarts and common sense are not dependent upon each other.

In Iowa, instead of having Kindergarten pre-registration, they call it "Kindergarten Round-up". I remember being very disappointed that there weren't any cowboys or horses there.

When I was in Elementary school I used to believe that minimum days were actually called M&M days, and that those days you would go to school and the teachers would give out M&Ms. I was greatly disappointed.

I used to think when you were in High School gym class and you had to change your clothes, you went inside the locker and closed it, then changed your clothes so no one saw you in your underwear.

After I started school, I used to think you could only talk when you raised your hand. So I started raising my hand at home to ask my mom if I could go to the bathroom.
