MrBreeze the people who want a high school on this island are the same people who are currently using the schools on Marco and If you think these people are elitist then I know you do not have children going to school here. I suggest you go by the school at 2:45 and look at the cars in line, you will see mostly mini vans and pickup trucks, these are people who work for a living. Are there some rich people going to school here? yes but there are also kids who's family's have very little. Marco schools do not just serve Marco, there are kids from Goodland, Isles of Capri, 6 Ls farm and many other places using the school system.I grew up in a town that had it's own school system and I walked to school from 1st grade until senior year of high school and I did experience "real life" I had to get up each morning and get my butt to school on time just like you. The only difference I left the house a little later then you and got home a little earlier because I did not need to take a bus.So please don't generalize and say the people who want a high school on the island are elitist, it's people like me and my wife who both work hard for a living who want a high school on this island.
