Plenty of exceptional kids go to Law and do very well. To me that argument is as silly as the residents of Stratford wanting their kids at Bunnell but refusing Stratford High. Both high schools of each town are in constant collaboration and there is little difference in what is offered.

No, you're right. My ratings apply to statistics, but the curriculum and quality of teachers is good in both high schools. I know graduates of both schools and they all had positive experiences and have been successful in life. Likewise, some colleagues of mine have sons at Law and they like it there and are high honors students. The key is that they came from a supportive household that values education.

That sentiment was absolutely of utmost importance back when i was in high school. Today though, not so much to tell you the truth. The minority population is no longer segregated to the south end of town, as it basically was back then in my school days.
