That seems high. If a school has 1,000 graduates each year it would take
50 years to reach that number.
Well, that seems reasonable, in fact in England (where I'm from) I imagine a
high proportion of schools are older than 50 years. The two that I know
about (mine - an
inner-city comp, founded in the 19th century, and the school my Girlfriend
teaches at, est. 1917) are significantly older!.
