Congrats. Hadn't heard of this award before. Looked them up though - they are legit. Good luck!Feb 25, 2011
timeforthebeach is right. At Higley HS there is a building that is COMPLETELY empty that they rent out to an outside company to have an "alternative school" (the best of the best who have been expelled from all over the E. Valley). Also, there is a couple empty classroom rooms in each building. In addition, there is 1 - 2 computer labs in each building that aren't being refurbished in lieu of going to laptops. In a short calculation, that is 32 classrooms. At 30 students per classroom that is another 900 + students. With those numbers Higley HS is 40% below MAXIMUM capacity. Not that max would be good - but sure better than a new campus all together. And I forgot - they have plans to build a new 2 story building on the campus for more academic buildings and administrative offices. That would be a WASTE OF MONEY!Feb 25, 2011
Please, please, please kill this a-hole. It's not about deterring future crime or saving taxpayer money. It's about getting what he deserves within the law. Real justice for this d-bag would not be as easy as the needle. Hand down the sentence & stop his heart beating as soon as possible please!Feb 25, 2011
This school must have really lousy teachers. If the teachers were skilled professionals this wouldn't happen.May 25, 2010
