Not an alternative school. It's just in the white trash area of Red Bank.

There isn't anything that happens at White Knoll that doesn't happen everywhere else in the area. For whatever the reason, it seems to get publicized more at WK, but there are many schools with the same issues.

Well said Bill. I am not sure why they always get "bad" media coverage but they do. My kids go there and let me tell you there is more goood at that school than bad.

"Here" means a location, it is not an auditory capability.

"Their" is a possesive word, not an adverb signifying a place.

You can't really expect people to listen to your opinion about schools when you appear uneducated yourself.

Reading these boards makes me realize why this state has so many problems.

By the way, I am a Lexington High School graduate, and I'm not in jail.

Since more likely than not a student at the school called in this "treat" the next day which I believe is February 6th they go to school late they should be required to go all day as usual.

Both of my boys graduated from WKHS, 2006 and 2004. Both are in college and doing very well. However, I had to ride WHKS when it came to disapline. Lex One is so scared to do their job it puts the good kids in harms way. The teachers appear to be great but the district is terrible. The day I saw my youngest son walk across the stage with his diploma I had a sigh of relief. I do not like the fact that the alternative and djj kids are sent to WHKS. Those children have so many issues. They are sent back into the school system way too soon! WKHS knows me well. I was there frequently fighting for the saftey of my boys.

I heard that it was a bomb threat. There must have been some validity to it for them to dismiss school. You can never be too careful in these situations. And yes, usually they do not report on such things because of mass hysteria.

...and this perfectly constructed gem of a sentence:

"yeah that is why white knoll is a great school and other schools are just lower standards and dumb trash."

It looks like this person was evacuated from White Knoll early and never went back.

I think White Knoll is a decent school. My Husband graduated from there in 2003 and he always brags about that school. I graduated from Airport High in 2004 and from what I can see white knoll is much better than airport. When I was at Airport we had multiple bomb threats and spent plenty of days outside in the football stadium due to them.

Seeing as I'm a student at WKHS myself, I definitely think I would have more insight on the facts about WKHS. For one thing, I come from a military background and I can truly say that Lexington School District One educates their students very well. I feel that I am receiving a very good education and I think that fact is overlooked in many situations like this. I also feel that WKHS is publicized in the media more than it should be. Plus, the media only reports the bad. I wonder, Did anyone ever hear about the good things that WKHS students have done this year? I personally don't think anyone has because the media doesn't publicize those type of things because it's not what the public wants to hear. But on a lighter note, I feel that this mornings "bomb threat" was made by someone who in fact is very unintelligent and I personally think that Lexington One made the right choices and took the correct precautions in this situation.

Learn how to write, how to spell, and how not to use run-on sentences. I honestly cannot follow your comments - are you praising the school or trashing the school?
Thank You

Thank you for defending your school and your school district, and thank you for speaking up about your good education. Some people are so disenfranchised, angry, lonely, and/or live miserable, sick, deprived lives. It seems that their only desires are to wreak havoc and destroy anything and anyone in their paths.
