I could care less as long as the school was performing well (which looking at some of these, some are greatly improving from where they were a couple years ago.)
LOL!! Academically superior? Not sure about that. I am aware of "prep" high schools. They are schools that are for the college bound high school student. But, is the University Park "creative art" School is for the creative art bound and the Albermarle Road Elementary Academy of World Studies is for the "World Studies" bound? I don't see the connection. Do you see my point?
Angry? LOL!! If I have obviously touched a sore spot with you, that would make you the "angry" person and not me. I am just looking for some reasoning for the unusual names of schools.
I believe that schools should just be called what they are, high schools, middle schools, or elementary schools. The Albermarle Road Elementary Academy of World Studies is as much of a academy specializing in world studies as Wilson Middle School is a school focusing on Wall Street finance.
If you "could care less", that would mean that you have peaked out at caring. LOL! I believe you mean you "couldn't" care less. Anyway, I am allowed to touch on this subject as I am wondering if it is logical or just "feelie, goodie" stuff that serves no meaningful purpose.
