Tell the residents of Cyburbia a little (or a lot) about your school days, before you wandered off to seek that degree in planning, architecture, or Lenin Theory. What was the "route" you took? This Bear will go first.
Kindergarten was at a Toledo Public School, Nathan Hale. ("Nathan Hale, the County Jail!")
Grades 1-6 - Gesu Catholic School. I did not get along well with the nuns. Not at all.
"Give a cheer, give a cheer; for the nuns who drink the beer, in the cellar of good old Gesu."
Grades 7-8-9 - Washington Junior High School, Washington Local School District.
Finished the dance at Whitmer Senior High School, Washington Local School District.
Just the facts, Jack:
The Toledo Public School District does not encompass a large part of north, west, and northwest Toledo. Students in these areas, actual corporate limit areas of Toledo, attend schools in the Washington Local School District. Years ago Toledo annexed all of Adams Township......and all of that township's schools became Toledo Public Schools. When they tried to do that to Washington Township, a small portion (just a few hundred homes) held their own and retained township status. That meant that the township could keep their district and their schools. Almost every school building in the Washington Local Schools District sits within corporate limits of Toledo.
Note: Toledo Public Schools just announced that they are eliminating Middle Schools. The closure of a number of buildings and the layoff of administrators and teachers will save the district about $25 million a year.
Now it is your turn. Let us know. What say you?
