Somebody needs to tell Mayor Lockwood that not all of Milton's residents currently attend Milton High School. Students from Belleterre, Lake Laurel, Fairmont, Avensong and other neighborhoods along Route 9 and in the Deerfield area currently attend Alpharetta High School.I am thrilled that the students from these communities - who go to school with my children at Cogburn Woods and Hopewell - will now get to go to high school in Milton with their classmates.I also welcome the diversity and work ethic these students will bring to our new high school.
The mayor said that he personally would like to see the lines drawn so as not to "take the students out of the city of Milton". Which students are being taken out of the city of Milton? There will be two schools in the city of Milton now, Mr. Mayor!
The mayor probably meant to say that he didn't want Milton High to take students from outside of the city of Milton - like, you know, the "complexion" people.
Milton High should be left as it is and not disrupt all the families in Milton. The overflow from other schools should go to the new High School based on proximity to this school. Why is the BOE making this process so complicated and messing with already over crowded two lane roadways in Milton. The less East/West traffic the better.
Roswell is "one of those schools" that has overflow. So your solution is to send that group to Bethany. That really solves the traffic situation and speaks to proximity.Good heavens! With thinking like that you are qualified for city council.
I dont think anyone said put one kid from Roswell into Bethany. That is ridiculous.And the first poster, you are thrilled because the students from Cogburn and Hopewell will now get to go to high school in Milton with their classmates. Well 25% of the children in NWestern will go to the school on the same campus as MHS and go to school not with their classmates to Milton but end up starting over again, to a school further away, not with their classmates. So you understand perfectly why the desire is to keep communities and neighborhoods together then.
10:02 I think you missedthe point of 7:58. Three uver crowded schools. Milton is the lynchpin. If you leave Miton untouched and crowded, it leaves Alpharetta to fill Bethany which can't be done. What do you do with Roswell. The ridiculos is to think that the problem is going to be solved without Milton inthe mix.
In high school I remember a cheer that went like this: Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar, all for Roswell stand up and holler, all for Milton lay down and waller.
The sacred cow (MHS) is put out to pasture.
YEAH !!!!! Same goes for our mayor and council--"out to pasture".
