Justification! Is a high school necessary? Probably not. Kids already go to a poor performing school as it is. Do you honestly believe that keeping the students on the island will have any greater academic impact for them than that of Lely, Gulf Coast, or any other public high school? Not likely since it all boils down to the core values in which a family establishes for these students. Next, Marco Island Charter Middle School has its own fair share of issues. A high school's identity is not based on issues, rather values and preparing our young minds for the next phase in their lives. Bottom line, WHO IS GOING TO FUND THIS? Unless you have a darn good grant writer (or philanthropists willing to flip the bills, oops they're already trying that with MICMS), focus on fixing what is already in place, not trying to reinvent the wheel. That is what the Optimist Club of M.I. has tried to do (since the YMCA's alleged inability to offer good quality athletics for youth). Marco Island, you find yourself chasing your tail once again. Stop trying to keep up with the Jones'. MARCO ISLAND WILL NEVER BE NAPLES! Start grasping your children's minds rather than sheltering them.
