Off topic, but US News HS rankings are out...http://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools/new-york/rankings?name=&schooltypepublic=y&schooltypemagnet=y&state=ny&county=greece&schooltypecharter=y
To 4:25PM ~~ TYVM, most interesting! So Odyssey is 75th in NYS but 707th in the US! That's quite a departure from being among the 100 tops in the country.
Yes. School used to be academic magnet. Now it's just a district area sending school. And its' district is not the best. Pretty much the city 25th Ward. Gang activity at the middle school level will now be moving up to the high school level there. So the focus is now behavior not academics. 5 year prediction...Athena and Arcadia will surpass Odyssey in academic rankings and it may even slip behind Olympia...
No kidding! Straub Road is horrible. Agree, pickleball court is a poor use of money. So is the giant covered pavilion that was built at the community center. Seems the word "community" is missing from these decisions.
