freedom- Your reasons for not putting a school on Marco are RIDICULOUS! There is enough land to put a small high school(400+ children attend MICMS)11 acres is sufficent for a model high school- MICMS is great because of the teachers and parents who SUPPORT this school. The high school on Marco will be great because of the teachers and parents who SUPPORT it. I disagree and have children in many sports programs in MICMS and Lely. The children can and will still be in sports and will not lack in athletics. There are many small private schools that we can play - MICMS plays the small private schools! and there are many other teams to place athletes on. the park and YMCA also have facilites that the local children can use/ If a child is good and excells or even wants to play- opportunity exist. You have to be kidding! Socialization at Lely! Is this the socialization skills that you want your child to learn at this impressionable age- I see first hand the socialization skills from the minor low income diversified families- AND IT IS LACKING- This is one of the reasons families do not want to put children that have been taught well in socialization at Lely- so that the high school with inferior D Grades and inferior students (who are not taught how to act, respect, or learn!) can teach our Marco children how to disrespect. You are correct that Lely does produce some outstanding students- but the majority of the students at this school are not outstanding. The parents on Marco are not in denial. It is the simple truth. More families are taking children to other schools- Naples High, Barron Collier,etc, and expensive private schools like Community so that their children (who have been taught well) are not undone at Lely! These numbers increase every year and more are increasing (expecially in the sports and athletes!) so if you think that Lely is acceptable and okay, you sir- are in denial. Lely is a D school (and at present) not acceptable- Lely has cut staff recently (less counselors- now only three) The children that attend this school are not ready for college and are not given the best opportunity possibly. Lely needs brought to par (which will not happen- due to the minority and lack of parents support from all of these children) so the other option for our children of Marco is a nice Small High School. This was in the plans of Deltona and should be finished. Many of the MICMS children also come from Lely Resort, and East Naples. The parents, residents and community of Marco need to make certain this dream happens for future children. I do have children and I am a parent who has an A Student at Lely and I am not impressed with Lely High School. Parents of Marco children that attend MICMS A rated school should expect and deserve better for this area than sending our kids to a D School with many problems from many minority kids! Give our local childen the A grade High School they deserve to attend!
