Hi Debe... are those kids in the picture actual students?  Maybe it's just me and the fact that I don't have kids, but they look more like college students to me!  I guess kids are just growing up more quickly these days!  BTW, Myers Park HS sounds like an outstanding facility and educational experience.

A school with 75 acres to roam. That's really something. it really is amazing how big some of these high schools are getting. When I graduated my high school had about 600 kids in the senior class. not it's probably closer to 2000. The world is going to run out of room eventually. LOL

Hi Debe,

What a professional blog on Myers Park HS. You have painted quite a picture of the campus which appears to have outstanding facilities. This campus sounds larger than many junior colleges which does appear to be the trend. Even though the have the IB program (which is outstanding) I like your comment "there's an instruction level for everyone." You do an excellent job of showing us how articles on Localism should be done!
