Delete. Another non-notable high school. Indrian 03:18, Oct 25, 2004 (UTC)

  • "first of its kind in its area" might be notable, depending on the definitions of "its kind" and "its area". Also some things in there which could make it notable if and only if they are verified. If being the "first of its kind in its area" turns out to be broad enough to be notable (i.e. it's not the first concrete-framed school within 400 yards of someone's house), and the scandals can be verified independently, K.

  • Delete. Just for the record, since someone a few hundred pages back was collecting other people's votes, you can count me in for deleting every blasted grade school and high school page, except the extremely unusual or notorious (Columbine; schools run in the Warsaw ghetto; etc.). High schools, though they touch thousands of people, are no different from any other business which does the same: the supermarket where I shop, for example. We're not a phonebook. — Bill 12:30, 25 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. What an excellent analogy: You're right, we're not the phonebook. Phonebooks are made out of paper and couldn't conceivably hold nearly as much useful and noteworthy information. -- Radman1 16:42, 27 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • I feel the need to rebut that assertion. High schools tend to be locii of community activities, unlike your local business. Often they will have the facilities that give many athletes their start. Schools are listed on the highest resolution maps as landmarks. Students spend 6 or more hours of every school weekday at a high school, rather longer than your average shopping trip. Most people will only ever attend one high school. How many supermarkets have you gone to? High schools are definitely more notable than supermarkets. No vote The Steve 18:39, Oct 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Little did anyone know that those would be invisible votes always cast. Count my Harvey Vote as delete all but the schools that are notable for being first of something, historically in play in some manner, or in the (national) news for some reason of fame or infamy.
