No Amigas, as even the earliest home computers were only a "pie in the sky" dream at the time. No other type of computer either, if for no other reason than that our school lacked any large free space that could be converted into a computer room, and even if it had, the costs of installing the extra air conditioning that would be needed would have been too high to afford. We did have one teletype that could be used to connect to a mainframe that the school district owned via a 110 baud acoustic modem, but that was the extent of our computing capabilities. Hard to believe that's the environment where I got my first taste of programming, actually.
