    like/liked

    I am talking to some high school friends about my elementary school.
    Should I use past or present? Should I use present because I still like the school but I don't know whether the teachers are still friendly and nice.
    Or, mix?


    The teachers are very friendly and nice. I really liked the school.

    I'd recommend using "liked." Your time at that school is over now.

    If you still go back and visit your teachers or have another reason to keep a connection to it, then you can use "like" but I would do so only if I went on to explain my current connection. "My little sister goes there now. You know, I really like that school. I smile whenever I go there to pick her up." -- something like that.
