wouldnt send my kid to a trailer park high school!

Written on Marco Island Chamber of Commerce gala honors three for community contributions :

Just look around the room...same old goats patting themselves on the back year in and year out!

Written on PrepZone: Monday football notebook :

Someone needs to tell the Marco Academy coach of this little rule with the FHSAA......
18.1.3 The conduct of practice sessions, practice games or exhibitions/exhibition games of any kind on a Sunday is prohibited.
Looks like they will be $250 lighter in the pocket if someone where to report this violation.

Written on Behind the scenes: Marco Island Academy students learn about the hospitality industry :

Funny how this school opened up a year ago as the place for a "world class education" and also where you can study Marine Biology under the great Jaques Cousteau foundation....a year later they are a "C" rated school teaching the kids how to bake cookies!

Written on Marco Island Charter Middle School student eligibility causing more than a stir :

in response to Brisla:

Oh, you nattering nabobs of negativity! Never happy unless you're unhappy.

You just cant take the truth!

Written on Marco Island residents: City says re-entry stickers not needed:

How do they know the bridges will remain open? What if there is a change in direction and the winds reach 75 mph? Will the bridge still be open??? Dumb and Dumber running this island!

Written on Marco Island Charter Middle School student eligibility causing more than a stir :

This is an opportunity for this "A" school to show that academics come first. If a student gets 2 D's or an F they should be ineligible. If this were my student and he got an F or 2 D's he would not be playing. The rule is great and should be upheld. The board needs to stand up for EDUCATION FIRST!!

Written on Marco Island Charter Middle School student eligibility causing more than a stir :

Heres an interpetation....the board will change the policy so the kids can play!

Written on Manta Rays upstream swim Marco Academy begins first football season :

in response to Brisla:

Enrollment numbers for the smallest schools in Florida with football programs last season:

Upperroom Christian Fort Lauderdale 22
Peniel Baptist Palatka 41
Seacoast Christian Jacksonville 43
Master's Academy Vero Beach 57
Temple Christian Jacksonville 58
Center of Life Miami 60
Life Christian Kissimmee 63
Barrington Christian Florida City 67
Ocala Christian Ocala 68
Northwest Christian Miami 69

Every single one of them absolutely sucks!
No one from any of these programs will "be seen". Also, kids that attend these school like the MIA, are kids that are not good enough to play for REAL public schools like the NAPLES GOLDEN EAGLES! I can assure you that not one player on MIA would be a starter at Naples High. They would rather play for a lame school than sit on the bench playing with and against REAL competition.

Written on Manta Rays upstream swim Marco Academy begins first football season :

25 kids on the entire team! Are you kidding me! 6 kids at least will be playing both ways. That is a prescription for disaster. This is an example of how truly lame this school is. In three grades they barely have 100 students. There are teams in Fl that have more players on their football team than attend the MIA! As far as exposure goes, any kid that plays on this team has ZERO chance of "being seen"....Heres some advice...if you want to "be seen" then you need to play for a REAL team...take your pick in Naples...MIA=minor league.

Written on Vanderjagt confirmed as Academy football coach; Parents, students support Vanderjagt in getting Charter coaching job back :

Mickey Mouse coaches coaching a Mickey Mouse school! No place for middle school football and until the Academy becomes a REAL school there is no place for football there either.

Written on Prep football: Marco Charter School board says principal to decide Mike Vanderjagt's fate:

in response to waterday:

Mike helps many kids, my children were never coached by him, but hey, then again.. maybe he is getting them ready for "the real world" aka Lely High School. Where the norm these days is to slap, body slam, hit those Marco children. Mike= one time s----- mistake occurrence, Lely =happens frequently to Marco kids. Parents, get involved when you see abuse, report it and choose your school wisely!

dont slander Lely. Name names or shut up!
You are right"choose your school wisely"...
ANYONE THAT SENDS THEIR CHILD TO THE DYSFUNCTIONAL MARCO ACADEMY NEEDS THIER HEAD EXAMINED! Teachers, principal, students ALL bailed out on this JOKE OF A SCHOOL!

Written on Marco Island City Council opens with Marco Island Academy report; close with advisory committee selections:

in response to Brisla:

"Students performed up to or better than district standards"

They are sooooo great at the Marco Island Dysfunctional Academy

Written on Marco Island City Council opens with Marco Island Academy report; close with advisory committee selections:

in response to Ian_Curtis:

The variance for the church property is 100 students. How can they have 120 students there next year even if it just for a few months? Everyday they run over 100 students at the church they are against code and they are admitting this to the council?

Thats because they already know that they wont have 100 kids! There were kids that were leaving this school to go to EVERGLADES CITY to get away from this debacle! 99 percent of the 8th graders are going to LELY!

Written on Marco Island City Council opens with Marco Island Academy report; close with advisory committee selections:

For one, why does the City Council need to get an update from them? Does The Middle School and TBE do the same???
Second, the director is all smoke and mirrors. Most people that I have spoken to had a BAD experience at the school this year and will not be returning. Most of the rising 8th graders will be attending Lely. Nothing of value occuring at that school. Parents are shortchanging their child;s education and need to look elsewhere ASAP!

Written on Letter to the Editor: Time to abandon the fireworks?:

Ray....I think its time for you to leave the US!

Written on Marco Island Academy readies for expansion:

Who are you to say this school is top rated? Just because they score well on a test means nothing. The teachers they employ are far from world class. The athletic programs are lame. The facilities are pathetic. This is not world class. This is LOW CLASS! Those poor kids are being forced to attend by their lame parents. 99 percent of the middle school kids dont want to attend and will not. Stop making something out of nothing!

Written on Seafood extravaganza: Marco Island festival grows in its fourth year:

They need to drop the $6 entry fee...why would I pay money to spend MORE money? That is a deal breaker for me!

Written on Letter to the Editor: Police have better things to do:

There is a new sheriff in town.......

Written on Marco Island Academy readies for expansion:

Can any of these people spell J-O-K-E?
How much will they be expanding to? 100?
This school has violated all rules regarding the formation of a charter...her first comment was that they can operate if there is a "need"...that has NEVER been established unless you count being too lazy to drive over the Jolly Bridge!

Written on Collier Schools give former Superintendent Thompson $120,000 to settle lawsuit :

More great use of our collier county tax dollars!!!

Written on PHOTO GALLERY: Marco Academy opens first basketball season with losses:

What kind of High School experience is that? The parents of these kids really feel they are getting the most out of high school attending that school? I think the Academy and Everglades should combine. Since Everglades has an actual school I think the Academy needs to send their kids there. If they do that then they "might" have a chance against some poor JV teams in the area.
