Buddy, A part of me still thinks it was put out there to see how big the fight would be. I don't think it is a done deal by any means. I agree with improving academics. That is a necessity everywhere, not just Stanly County. America is falling behind what used to be (and in many ways still are) third world countries like India and China. But there has to be a way to do that without wiping out the rich tradition of 2 Stanly County High schools. There has to be other alternatives. It is possible to have a district and a magnet concept at a school.
TW, If they put ALB and NS together, they should be better than WM. It would be a 3A school. And WM would be playing them non-conference I would assume. How in the world would that work next season?
Because AHS is actually being split three ways, NS would play the schedule already set for this season but the newly named school could be moved up in classifications the next year when actual numbers are determined & certainly when realignment happens again the following year. With 570 students going to the Magnet school, right now the projected size would keep them in 2A (2AA for football)
