How sad to see Montgomery school going away. The school board decided in 2009 that they were gong to tear it down- they never even considered anything that to do with the building. If the board was REALLY concerned about EVERY student, they could've turned it into some sort of trade school- something to teach the kids not going to college a trade. Just think, if they had a skill of maybe being a plumber or electrician or auto repair, they could go out and get a job instead of standing on the street corner with no skills. Which school will be the next to be torn down? Of course they want to build a new Middle School now. Just remember- buildings don't teach kids- TEACHERS DO!!!

Didn't the paper say the building had asbestos, mold are something? And that is the reason for tearing it down?

Really wish the school could be saved. It only had mold and graffiti after it was abandoned and not maintained or secured. A trade school in conjuction with a school like TSTC would have been a nice thing. Wish the district would have tried something to keep Montgomery. Very sad. Once it's torn down, the chance is gone.

So sad that Chamberlain School is not being used. With another bond election coming up they need make use of that they have. What are they building at high school?

The HISD board members better get ready for my late night and early morning phone calls when the lot at Mongomery becomes a meeting place for loud, thumping music, basketball, drinking, drugs, and trashing the place. Board members decided to go forward with Montgomery School demolition. The same board members can come clean up the place and patrol it, too! This isn't a threat...it's a promise! I'm totally disgusted with the decision to demolish Montgomery!!!

And where do you suppose the money for a trade school would come from? As a neighborhood resident, I hate to see it go, but an empty lot will be safer than an empty buiding housing rats and homeless people.

to be honest with you I don't think any body gives a shit what disgusts you all that school does is sit there empty so it needs to be torn down and if your so concerned about what happens to the lot why don't you get up off your lazy ass and clean and patrol it as you says it needs

The Trade School would make the investment. Use of the facility in a coalition with ISD. There is enough population left in Henderson to be profitable to a higher institution of learning. Kilgore College doesn't seem to have a problem figuring it out with their coaliton at Central. Once lost, it's a moot issue anyway.

Obviously you did not pay attention when run-on sentences were taught.

I think the school could have been used for something. But we have people in this town who don't care about the tow's legacy. As for those who were for tearing it down, if you didn't attend this school, or your parents didn't attend this school, you have no say so in the matter. I have looked, there is nothing wrong with the foundation or any part of the entire building. Why tear down a peice if history, when there is nothing wrong with it?

You are kidding right? People who attended the school have the say so? What about the elected school board? Who by the way did take public input. The asbestos abatement woul have had to be done anyway. Then we have the law on disabled access to take into account. No way it could be made accessable. And the part under the auditorium leaked like crazy even when I went there. What do you think it could have been used for?

if you would read a little closer i said the people who DID NOT attend the school has no say so. also if im not mistaken the asbestos was supposedly removed about 20 or 25 years ago when all the churches and the schools were done

So if the people who did not attend have no say so, the say so must belong to those who did attend.Anyhoo According to the Henderson paper the asbestos removal was want they just did and it had to be done before they tore it down.

Maybe they should shove a ramp up your stupid ass and teach you how to spell. Cause you know that Montgomery has never had any disabled students the whole time it has been open. Clueless dipshit

You should wash your mouth out with a bar of soap and then apologize to Jill. You seem to be clueless as to the meaning of the word "cause". Maybe you meant "because". However, spelling and vocabulary seem to be the least of your problems.

Let me just say I hope you never have a disabled child but if you do I can promise that you will be more aware of the problems they face just getting around. I guess your one of those people who think we should stick them all in institutions.
