I think the High Rolls-Mountain Park school should become a part of the Cloudcroft school district. It is more in tune with the mountains than the flatlands. Then the graduates could continue in the small-school tradition, which is also observed in Cloudcroft.

I believe that they go all the way to Artesia for school. I also live in the mountains near High Rolls and have gotten the feeling from people in Cloudcroft that we are the poor relations. More than once I have hear, "Oh your live down in High Rolls." as if it is the "wrong side of the tracks."

I do not think it is about being from High Rolls. I think it is more about being in the right click. I am not sure how it works but if you are not related or in the right crowd you are treated the same way. BTW, Cloudcroft can't handle thier own problems, why would you wish this incompetence on the children of High Rolls?
