I am moving to Mansfield Texas soon, and really need a break down of the high schools. I prefer not to send my children to a mostly black school, although I do prefer some diversity. From what I can tell of sports pictures online, Timberview is a mostly black school, Legacy is a white school, Mansfield HS is mostly white with some diversity and I can't find any pictures of the Summit student body so I don't know. Any info on the racial makeup of the Mansfield high schools would be greatly appreciated.

Default Racial division in Mansfield schools

[FONT=Verdana]Luckily for you Mansfield is primarily prejudice, as you are. So, the schools are ethnically divided.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Timber view and summit have more than 60% of the African American population in Mansfield.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]When the African American population of Mansfield is less than 20%[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Legacy has a high Hispanic and white population mainly because it is the districts high school ESL newcomer center. It consists of about 15% Afr. American students.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Mansfield has about 5% African American, more than 50% of Mansfield’s Asian population and 80 % white.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Mansfield school district even had a law suit brought against them for devising school boundaries that were racially segregated. So much so, that people who lived next door (2 miles away) to Mansfield high school were bused to schools more than 5 miles away.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]after the law suit , the racial threats, town hall meetings, threats to remove children from school if they had to attend with " Ni&@rs" simmered down, they redrew the lines to lessen the outrageous segregation of races and began to build schools like crazy. So that Mansfield high school could remain all whites and the minority population could be divided amongst the other 4 schools without rising suspicious.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]So to answer your question, if you are white just move into a private community, not many minorities are allowed in those areas, all the schools will be primarily white. If you aren't white, I don't know what to tell you... the town has subtle racial policies and attitudes towards ALL minorities not just blacks.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Enjoy your time in this city[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana][/FONT][FONT=Verdana][/FONT]

Always seems to be one in every crowd. How you were able to determine all of this from the OP's post. Such perception. Truly amazing.

I think that comment is what made Sugarplum believe there might be some racism behind the OP's request...since there were no qualifications/explanations suggesting other reasons...

I just don't understand why there were all the coding keys in the post...I did not spend time trying to decipher the message...
