I'm sure they can get a considerable amount of aid from the state.

Come to Long Beach. Remember last year when the kid at West Hempstead High School got stabbed and how the school failed to report that to the state even when it was splashed all over the news?

What the eff with the Italian people at the meeting? I mean fuhgetaboutit! How many people currently living in Island Park produce phony documentation so they can go to school in Long Beach?

From a real estate point of view, it's a win-win situation.

Simple answer. There are not enough students in Island Park to support a high school.

quote...."It ended with audience members standing and screaming at the board and each other as high-school girls sobbed into their cell phones."

if it ain't broke, don't fix it....the system seemed fine the way it is.

btw - take away the cell phones from high-school students.
they should be spending more time studying and spending "real people" time together instead of living on a phone. such a shame.

Why did they have to go to WH for 40 years? If LB wasn't an option, Couldn't they have gone to Oceanside or East Rockaway? It's a lot closer. I lived in LB for 10 years I had no idea IP kids got sent by bus to WH.

Which school has a better reputation for gang activity. I want my child exposed to the best education possible.

The elective courses are endless:

Du-Rag for Dummies

Understanding the mind of a MS-13.

How To Use A Stiletto Knife Effectively

Mourning for a Crip or Blood on a Daily Basis.

Island Park is one of the most bigoted and racist communities (a majority but not everybody - there are good people living there) on Long Island, home to people with bad values.

They don't want their kids going to Long Beach b/c there are blacks, Hispanics, and Jews in the classes. Simple as that.

I would want my kids going to W.H.H.S. Too many Jigs in L.B. The truth is, minorities ruin H.S. It goes from a learning enviroment, to a zoo. Look at Uniondale, Hempstead, Rossevelt, Freeport, even Baldwin H.S is a mess.
What is a jig? Is that an African American? By the way, the hispanic population at LBHS is higher than the black population.

Reguarding the letter from you bet:
You can custom build a school for any size town they do successfully all over the country, You could build one school for all students from kindergarten to 12th grade they keep the older kids separated from the younger ones trust me it works if done right. We have many of them where i live.
