Marco97, Your post about "kids who's family's have very little". I will tell you this,people with "very little" as you put it do not reside on Marco Island and send their kids to private charter school.
I am puzzled by your post of child pickup at 2:45 at the school with cars in line. If you walked to school from grades K-12 why are the cars lined up to pick up kids from school on Marco Island? I could see maybee if it was storming, but other than that the weather should not be a factor. I walked to a bus stop every day and lived in snow, ice, and below zero ville my entire youth.
I feel the private school is a mini country club that you believe will give your kids a better education. That may be true, but I feel the island was never intended to develop this way and if the Mackel bros. were here today they would be the first to say it.
Why do you think tract K was not developed as the high school? Answer, as with the Y it just does not treat the surrounding neighbors quality of life fair. Bottom line, I am not anti-school, but everyone has to be treated equally. You just cannot come in a "buy or merge" your thinking into people's space.
Neighborhoods evolve and grow, you do not create them with funds and buildings, But you can ruin one quickly with people with money.
