Roosevelt High School is a public high school in St. Louis, Missouri that is part of the St. Louis Public Schools. Roosevelt opened in 1925 after two years of construction and the evacuation of a cemetery for the building site. From the 1930s through the 1970s, Roosevelt served a predominantly white, ethnically German population, and among its graduates was Clyde Cowan, the co-discoverer of the neutrino particle.

The current Affton High School was constructed on 22 acres (. ha) of land in 1955. Bosenbecker, Ray (2004). So, Where'd You Go to High School?. 1. St. Louis, Missouri: Virginia Publishing. p. 40.

I'm Ray Bosenbecker, author of the first book on St. Louis High Schools. In response to Maria Russell's assertion that my book "So Where'd You Go To High School?" didn't give real insight into the provocative question "So Where'd You Go To High School?" I offer the following:

The book provides a written history of St. Louis high schools, as well as early and current maps of the high school locations, photographs of many high schools, a chapter about the architects of the high schools and a complete compendium of all public and parochial St. Louis High School up to 2004 when the book was published.

Chapter 5, St. Louis Neighborhoods and Their High Schools, describes the origin of the famous St. Louis high school question.

"As the importance of higher education increased, more high schools were built, and enrollment of high school students reached all time highs. Soon, the name of the high school replaced the name of the neighborhood in identifying who you were. The high school and its geographic boundaries, instead of the neighborhood and its boundaries, became the new criterion for identifying who you were.

The transition from neighborhood to high school labeling was gradual. No precise time or event has ever been identified as to when high schools replace the neighborhood in identifying a person. However, at almost the same time that high schools were being built, the streetcar and automobile entered the scene and provided families with new levels of mobility. ... A new high school in a neighborhood added prestige not only to its neighborhood but to the other adjoining neighborhoods embraced by its boundaries: the high school created a new geographic definition for the boundaries of the neighborhood you were born."

I bought this book for my daughter's birthday but was unable to give it to her because the information about her school was totally incorrect. Even the address was incorrect. It would have been a great gift, mainly because she was home coming queen of Hazelwood West. I have 3 daughters and was going to buy all of them a book. I'm happy I only bought one first.

Great idea for a book, but covers too many schools. I would have suggested it be divided into three books -- one for the city schools, one for north county and one for south county.

It focuses not only on the historical significance of High Schools in St. Louis, but also gives information on each and every school.

With great anticipation, I ordered this book, thinking that it would give real insight to the question, "So, where'd you go to high school?" I was born and raised in STL, and moved away 30+ years ago. Because of my husband's job, we moved around a lot, but I'd always meet someone from STL and, of course, one of the first questions was "So, where'd you go to high school?"

Depending upon the answer, one could ascertain the neighborhood that person lived in, a general idea of the family's income, the activities they might have taken part in, etc. Not being a social anthropologist, I hoped that this book would, once and for all, give some real insight into that provocative question. This book did not.

What it is a compendium of origins of the high schools in St. Louis. It's history, more than anything. Will I be putting it up for sale? Most definitely.
