It is usually up to you about what you want to include in your college application essay, however, top university like Yale, Stanford and Harvard prefer the essays which are more inclined towards mentioning the high school years because they are recent, thus, most valid. You should sparingly use references from the past since those moments do not serve as powerful references.
