ed34145, what do you mean by "diverse opportunities"? Instead of asking yourself how such a small high school would provide diverse opportunities, why not go to one of the upcoming meetings and ask that very questions and perhaps provide some answers or suggestions. I went to a public high school in a rural country town that had only 51 in my class. I'm not sure that my school had "diverse opportunities", however, we had many other great learning expreriences that you can't get at larger schools. One, we felt like a family and most everyone was friends and was willing to help. We had band, choir, , art, drama, student council, sports (baseball, football, cheerleading, basketball, volley ball, tennis, track, golf, wrestling, girls basket ball). There were 35 students in the class under mine and only 46 in the class older than mine. We barely had 150 students in our classes from 9th -12th. Nearly everyone graduated and went on to some form of higher education. I attended a State University and never felt that I was less educated or had less diverse opportunities than any of the other thousands of students that I was competing against. My thought I leave you is, if you can, please help this community by being positive and adding suggestions. I don't know if a High School will work out or not, however, it does not take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that any community is better with a quality high school. It provides the opportunity for families to move here, work here, raise their children here and as an added bonus, it is a fact that areas with great school systems have increase property values. This in turn provides even more added tax dollars to the county school systen. It is a win win situation. If you live here and would still want your child to have a diverse education, you certainly would have the choice to go to a different school, even Lely High, if that is where you would want your child to go to get a real world and diverse education. It would be your choice. If there ever was a high shcool built, I don't think anyone would hold a parent hostage and not let them attend a school of their choice. Many parents are already taking their children to other schools, both private and public. So, instead of being negative, why not spin it around and help provide answers to overcoming your objections.
