This chapter focuses on Spielberg’s high school years. Spielberg’s accounts of his high school years have tended to conflate some of his experiences at Arcadia High School in Phoenix with experiences during his senior year at Saratoga High School in California. Some anti-Semitic incidents that actually happened to Spielberg in Saratoga have been incorrectly described by him as having happened in Phoenix. This may be a result of Spielberg’s tendency to confuse the locales and dates of events that happened in one of the five cities where he lived when he was growing up.

Keywords:   Steven Spielberg, Saratoga High School, Arcadia High School
