  1. This is a good deal for Mint Hill. My kids began their educational journey at Barringer Elementary, a magnet school for talent development. Old buildings, interesting community. The school was a smashing success, dependent not on bricks and mortar, but on parents and involvement. I predict the same for new Indy.

  2. 129% capacity at Indy. You have got to be kidding me. When these new boundaries take effect the school will be at full capacity. There is absolutely zero room for growth when the areas going here are high growth zones. the piint of building a new school is to relieve over crowding. Indy will have trailers upon trailers and the new school will sit under capacpity forever.

    Totally ridiculous!!

  3. This is a bad plan for Clear Creek parents and home owners as it moves students from under-achieving Garinger HS where the child / class ratio is @ 16 per class and dumps those same low performing students into 26-30 per class. Simply hoping that placing high poverty children with in a new school will not change their ability to learn. An 81% minority school? Where am I living, in Bedford-Styvestant? If CMS plans to challenge reality, why not bring one high poverty neighborhood into the new school and see if it succeeds. Otherwise, you’re making a 2nd Garinger – from the start. Garinger unfortunately grew into its’ sad current state over a twenty plus year socio-econmic bubble burst. It now at stands at 91% minority. Perhaps that is the legacy CMS BOE wishes to leave behind? I hope not.

  4. Why wouldn’t CMS make the best school possible? Add all of Clear Creek in with Bain … !!!!!

    Clear Creek
    28.1% African American
    52.8% White
    10.4% Hispanic
    8.7% Other
    37.6% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch

    Students performing at or above grade level in Reading 67.8%
    Students performing at or above grade level in Math 84.6%
    Students performing at or above grade level in Writing 70.6%

    The new high school’s AP program will not meet (or exceed) what is required for truley talented children with the pool of students beyond Clear Creek. If CMS votes the latest plan, it is going to make one dumb school. We are screwed.
