Who are you, and what are you doing in my yearbook?

My kids were looking at their high school yearbooks, and both commented that there were kids in their class they had never seen, nor heard of.
Flashed back to my own high school days and remember that happening then too.
My kids had about 250 kids in their graduating class, I had about 400. But I went to a very small, church run private high school my freshman year with 40 students in the class, and poof, yearbook comes out, and there are 3 kids we didn't know. In that case, they were students at a satellite campus 100 miles from here, that we didn't even know existed.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Yes...every year there were kids that I had never seen or heard of. Then there were "announcement name" kids. They were the ones who were always called to the office, but who were never seen. At least by me and my friends. You'd know the name, but didn't see the face until the yearbook.

I graduated with a class of about 450.

Nope. I knew every single person from 7-12th grade (and a lot of the elementary, too).

My graduating class only had 36 people in it. The entire 9-12 was less than 200 people.

It was a public school, too.

Absolutely...my class had over 350 in it so there were plenty of people I never saw/met before.

No. 156 kids in my class. I just planned & held our 30th class reunion & knew them all. No unknown kids in our yearbook either. We even were able to find kids who had dropped out or moved away near the end & invited them too.

Also knew most kids from grades above & below us.

....there were a couple of [male]students that I didn't recognize either, but I think it's because they didn't use Just For Men at the time.....

Yes, same here.

DD just graduated in May and actually posted on her FB shortly after about how many kids she'd never heard of - she was in a class of 510 at a public school.

I understand not meeting them, but did you at least recognize them after 4 years of going to school together?

Graduating class of 250. I remember that experience during the graduation ceremony. I was a "B" so I got my diploma early and was sitting in the front row. My name also happened to fall between a lot of guys who I didn't hang out with, so I had no one to talk to.
I heard names and saw faces I did not recognize at all. Most were probably vocational students who were bused out for half of each day and who were taking gen ed classes the rest of the day. I was taking all college prep courses so I never had a chance to learn their faces. I also saw people get their diploma and remember thinking: "Hmmm, I thought they were a junior." or "Oh, I thought they graduated last year."

I graduated in a class of 9 (super small private school). I don't talk to any of them now (it's been 12 years).

My mom on the other hand graduated 45 years ago and has a group of 8 ladies that she graduated with and they get together monthly.
