Freedomofspeech1: From you constant post, against Marco getting an asset that will bring up real estate values, and more families into the area, if done correctly, I am guessing that you are a Marco resident that works closely with the public school (Lely), and that you graduated from Lely and have children that attended Lely. This is NOT about Lely High School. This is about Marco Island, the community (City) over the bridge, not East Naples. Kids are cheating to get out of Lely? Why do they choose another public school instead of Lely? I am sure you are convinced that Lely is the best school in Collier County, but I find it very disturbing that families will go out of their way not to send kids to this school. There has to be valid reasons, and there are! Also the rezoning, kids and parents tried so hard to stay out of Lely, and many of these parents are cheating.. why? The truth known is that Lely is improving (a little late) but it is lacking and to think that Lely is the real world, it isn't! Lely is an okay public school, if it wasn't, my kids would not be there. Marco will have a school!! great news! and the Charter school could add on grades and accept kids at present in the nice building that is already built, and if need be the trailers will work for awhile. There is a nice open field that is not used at Charter, this field has enough room on it, to build a very nice large building. If a soccer, baseball field or something is needed that is not in the three school's area, then there is the local parks, and YMCA that are always willing to help out the local kids, and the Charter school of Marco has a very nice gym, that could also be shared. Please support the Community you live in, you can also support Lely. Lely will get better from this, and you will see, that competition is a good thing. If Lely does not survive, then it was never a school intended for all. I believe that Lely will survive stronger, and a better school for all children not just the needy that it caters to.
