Anthony Edwards attended San Marcos High School in Goleta, California where there is a plaque commemorating him and was a good friend of "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" co-star Eric Stoltz. Kathy Ireland also attended school there but her and Anthony did not know each other at the time.

There is also a San Marcos High school in San Marcos, California. In 1988, the busses that were supposed to go to the one in Goleta to pick up the graduating seniors for Grad Nite at Disneyland went to San Marcos High school in San Marcos instead. The seniors ended up going the following night. Perhaps the school should be renamed "Goleta High School", as Goleta has no Goleta high school.
