"My kids will go to this school. the choice is easy for us looking at the State's grading of schools.
#12 Posted by joetf404 on July 1, 2009 at 7:41 a.m"Are we saying that kids from Lely can't get into a great school because Lely is a "C" School? Do we truely understand the state's grading system and why they have it? Where on your college application does your school's grade go? How is Duke, Brown, Cal Tech, Stanford, Penn, or Princeton going to know what your school is graded? They care about how well your child did and what they did with their time in high school as well as how they present themselves. That is a reflection of their intelligence, upbringing and work ethic, not the school they attended. Any child that attends Lely can get into any college they desire, if they apply themselves the right way. This would be the same as if they attended a smaller charter high school. Attending a charter high school isn't going to make it easier for one's kid to get into any school. I know people who have graduated Lely that have gone on to great colleges.
