You are a joke. Yet again someone that is jealous their kids probably could not get in. I can tell you this, been to many functions and there is no comparison to Model kids and public kids. Model kids know how to act in public and are respectful can't say that about most public kids. Sorry.
You don't know me. I was a public school teacher and my wife was a professor at Eastern. We could have EASILY put our kids in at Model. Let me stress that again: EASILY. EKU faculty kids got preference. We just didn't prefer that they go there.

Won't say that there weren't good kids from Model. There were, and are. Won't say that there weren't bad kids from public schools. There were, and are. But when I compare the average I saw from both, then public schools won for us. I did some work at Model not long after retiring, and I can say that it hasn't changed since I first made up my mind.

The school tax money would go to a child regardless of what school attended. The only money funded through Madison County Board of Education is technology funds, which are funneled down from state and federal monies. Those funds are required by federal law to be dispensed via district school boards.

A child's behavior is influenced by peers but should be enforced in the home by parents! There are times when I can see my children getting the entitlement mentalilty, which is when a come to Jesus talk is needed. Until I see an attitude change, restrictions are put in place (no tv, computer, cell phone or attending activities with friends).

All the dislike and hatered toward Model students past and present is unbelievable. If they are/were a rube then understandable but if they just attended school there (maybe it was their parent's preference) then perhaps you shouldn't read a book by it's cover.

I will not fully identify myself due to my position. But be it clear, had I wanted my children to attend Model Lab, there would have been no problem with that.
My children attended Madison Central because we, my wife, our parents, and myself all determined Madison Central to be the superior school system.
My three children are all college graduates from University of Kentucky two with Masters and one with his Doctorate. So I continue to feel we did exactly right.
On an off color note. I remember attending Central and my memories of the students of Model are how they all cry like little girls when you slap one. The women they are with will not run off like the guys do though. That is how we met, she was looking like she needed a real man, and was at the restaurant having dinner with her date.
We were at the local McDonald's when for a laugh and a dare, I kicked her date in the ass and ran him off. She and I then had a great time, and the rest is as they say, history.
She was also the main reason the children went the way they did. My wife attended Model and she was then and remains now, the loudest voice for children attending Central.
You are a joke. First, I doubt a banker would make a post like this post. You wife has very little character if she was turned on by you kicking her date in the butt. There are plenty of Model folks who could serve up a punk like you. Why don't you try this now? I can list a number of Model grads who would love to know who you are.

Go ahead and keep your kids sheltered over there at Model. Your kids are missing out on so much that the public school system offers such as football games and being State champs! Athletics is an important part of the public school system and actually winning somewhat like MCHS did yesterday is awesome. Model kids will never know what it feels like to be a part of something that great. I am sure they are feeling kind of left out of things this week, aren't they?

I was staying neutral in this debate until "Really" gave a prime example why Model is sometimes disliked in Richmond. The thought of comparing "public" school kids and Model kids is really juvenile for a grown adult with children. That's been the problem with the mindset at Model. I have kids in Madison County Schools and I don't think for a minute that they are receiving any less of an education than those students attending Model. At the end of the day, we have parents in public schools and parents in private schools who take a vested interest in the education their children receive. My kids are going to succeed academically whether they are at private or public school. However, they will not be exposed to the negativity and elitist behavior that I have witnessed from Model parents. Let me repeat - parents. I know several Model students who are great kids. It's the adults who tend to set the tone. Go MCHS - we are proud to be Indians for more than just basketball.

Bullshit..... Model guys are known sissies and crybabies. Way back when I was in school, we used to stomp their butts just because the sun was shining.

As for now, I can say I am too old, and leave beating crybabies to the current Central students.

I can tell you this. If your daddy went to Model between 1986 and 2000, then there is a dang good chance that I have slapped your daddy in his mouth and made him cry in front of his friends.

I know this because we was rowdy as hell and most all of the preppies got their asses kicked by at least one of the Central guys.

Or if your mother went there, ask her did anyone named Danny, who played football for Central ever slipped the salami to her. All I know is most of those girls loved to play with us Central guys.

Hell punk, I very well may be your real daddy.

I thought this was about if EKU was going to close Model? Whether your pro Model or against it, some of your comments are ridiculous. Start a new thread if you need to talk about how cool you were in high school.

While both schools have good and bad there has for many years been very negative feelings about Model folks. This has been brought on by the perception they put forth that they are superior. That has led to people using whatever they had and in most cases it was brawn to claim to, as they say, whip someones ass. How juvenile. I would say percentage wise Model has produced more college graduates but in a state with only a 21% college graduation rate is that anything to brag about? If people want to attend Model and deal with these feelings what difference does it make?
One of my favorite stories happened when I worked in a local hospital. A gentleman came in facing rather serious surgery. He said to the physician, doc do you remember me. The doctor replied sure I do. You hit me, made fun of me every chance I got when I was little because I attended Model and you were in the county. Then he leaned down and said don't worry. I won't hold that against you. True story.

Grow up people. Life is hard enough without all of this foolishness.

I say send your kids wherever you want to. If you want to send them to Model to be ridiculed and laughed at by the rest of the population then go ahead and send them there. Model people can act anyway they want. They aren't fooling anybody.

I have some fond memories of Model, heck, thats where I got my first BJ. Down behind the gym. Fantastic it was. She was cute as hell and hot as a match, and a few friends and I had gone to Model to smoke some pot with a few of the girls and she just kinda got right to it.

No I will not state her name as she had then and still has a special place in my heart.

But to tell the truth, many times when hanging there we found occasion to slap the shit out of some of the dweebs. You know, sissy boys.

Plus my oldest son, a MCHS graduate as well knocked a Model girl up. They are still married and my Grand kids are the absolute best.

They will be in County Schools though.

The grammar from some of the MCHS grads posting here shows why a Model education is superior.

The model kids couldnt go to the other schools, thinking there better, they would get there ass kicked.

That's one if the main issues with with the county schools. Should you send your child to a school for sports? Or an education? When you have parents lie and use all kinds of different addresses just to get to a certain school. That's a told model?? Get a life, and stop bashing a school that you know nothing about. Again another jealous parent!!!

And what would you say you are acting like now. By the way, not sure I would go down that road with how parents act. Maybe you should go to a few of the other schools beside Central. Can you say rednecks??? Unbelievable how they act over little Johnny that they think is going pro in multiple sports. Ridiculous!!! It's just game.

Here are some facts. Model is primarily funded by the state and by EKU. A very small percentage of their revenue is from tuition. This is why the school could possibly close. This also makes Model primarily a public school or semi....very semi-private school. If having the foresight to put your name on a waiting list and paying a small amount of tuition makes you feel like your child is receiving a superior education, then more power to you. Reality will soon approach these kids as they are released at some point into the real world. Private schools are great and should offer an excellent education along with preparing students for college. Here are some good questions to ask: What is Model's current average ACT scores? A very good private school should have a 24 or higher. What is their percentage of students that are accepted into college? What colleges are they? How much scholarship money was given to Model's 2012 class? Model had a place one time in this community. It has produced successful citizens. I just think Model is a school that is stuck in a bad situation. If they close its bad but if they stay open it could be even worse with little or minimal funding the state. This is probably the beginning of the end for the school. Sad but true.

Here are the facts. Go into the lobby and we have all these things posted on banners for everyone to see that we updated yearly. Don't see that at any county high school. Most every year we have 100% of the seniors go to college. Those 50 or so seniors get more in scholarships than all of the 400 or so students at Central. Again another jealous parents spreading failed information to try to make the school look bad. Get a life!!! That's the facts!!!

Average ACT score at Model has been in the top 10 in the state consistently. I know several people who have kids that attend Model who are no where close to rich, nor do they act that way. They choose it because it's a good fit for their child. Others may send their children to Mad. Co. for the same reason. It's an individual choice, both are great- support your community people!

I am a Model graduate and not all ppl that attend Model are from rich families. That is just not true. Each family in Madison County must choose which school is best for their student. Each school has good and bad aspects.

My Child graduated from MHS in 2012. 100% of the graduates went on to college. At graduation the information was over $1.75 million dollars in scholorships for the 54 seniors. My child played sports at Model and is currently on the Dean's list in college, and as a distinguished college student on the national list.

I'm sure we made the right choice and from the other posts on this thread from the bullies, I am certain of it. They obviously didn't learn to spell and have correct grammer either.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
