A local magazine came out with an article today which showed different stats of area high schools and CP did pretty well and I was proud. People in the area always think CP isn't a good school but I think it is. Sure it's a little on the older side and doesn't have modern buildings but it is always what's on the inside that counts, right? The school is big. According to the article is currently has 2,034 students. I don't think we had that many kids there when I went but probably around 1600-1700. A lot of my classmates when to excellent colleges and universities and kids who graduated after me went to even better ones (i.e. Harvard).
Here comes the rant part. This girl I met at an alumni meeting for my college was talking to me and telling me about her 3 year old. She told me she wants to move because if she doesn't her daughter will go to CP. First of all, your daughter is 3 how do you know what CP or any other school will be like in 10 years when she actually starts high school? This girl went to NG or LL, I can't remember, but they are pretty much the same school. I got into the same college as you did but went to CP. She graduated college before I even started so it means the admissions rates probably were lower. So how can she tell me that CP is not a good school.
Of course there are some teachers that aren't the best. But there are some that are great. I feel you get what you put in. I wanted to tell this girl what I truly felt but didn't because I didn't want to seem rude even though I felt she was. I understand people are always entitled to their own opinions but I think this girl could be a little bit less judgemental in her situation.
I'm glad I got that off my chest. It has been bugging me for a while. This actually happened months ago. Thanks for listening!
