Both Lahser and Andover have produced some pretty successful graduates over the past 40-50 years, because people moved here for the academic successes and high rankings of our schools.
If the $60-million bond passes on May 8, will anyone want to come for our great big GYM? Our 12-lane pool?
Taxpayers: Do you really want ONE big high school in exchange for two small ones?
Why? Would you prefer to work in a factory to working in a private office?
The attraction of our school district has been elite EDUCATION, not fancy sports facilities.
Seriously, if you want a big GYM, there are plenty of nearby districts that don't have much else to offer. Houses are affordable in districts where sports are more important than math, science and what we generally consider to be "school."
