For all of you who have said kind and intelligent things, I thank you. For you people who seem to believe I'm being over dramatic, picture this. You have been you the same people since you we're 5 years old. You've formed a bond that SHOULD be unbreakable. But it's being broken. You're being taken away from some of the people that mean the most to you. And for all of you saying that high school isn't "hell on earth" or "a prison yard" have been a little blind to the things around you. Bullying is a top issue in our society at the moment. Kids going to a place, getting judged and made fun of, and sometimes physically hurt. If you had a wonderful high school expericence, that's really great, it is. But not everyone does. Rome Catholic is a school where that doesn't happen. It's a small school, and the kids get along for the most part. We learn to be together and work through what problems we have, not bully kids we don't like. It's a family. And our family is suffering a loss. Nothing is going to be the same. And if this has zero effect on you I don't understand how you could be happy over the fact that kids are being hurt. I have never seen so many people, teachers included, cry than I did today. I don't want to remember my school in its last few weeks to be a sad place being judged. There were camera crews outside today, waiting by some of the older students cars, waiting to interview them. Do you see something wrong with that? A bunch of adults wanting to get information out of 17 year old kids who are losing their school. Just a side note, but I find it interesting that so many people on this website are happy my school is closing, but I bet a good chunk of you, or your families, or people you know, are going to be at my festival this coming weekend. The nerve.

Exactly. "Appear" you know nothing about me, and what I may or may not have gone through. I thank you for the warm, yet slightly sarcastic welcome, but I've been here for some time now actually. I'm a kid. A kid that's allowed to have feelings and emotions. Sorry you think otherwise.

I have been a student at RCS since pre-school. "Just A Kid" is 100% correct. The thing about RCS is that I don't necessarily even know who "Just A Kid" is, but if they told me their name, I'm sure I would know exactly who they are. Everybody knows everybody, and it really is a family setting. I feel like when I go to school, I can count on everybody within the walls to care about me personally. They will help me with anything I need help with, whether it is a teacher, student or any faculty. And we are being robbed of our family. It's literally my second home, and I'm sure that everybody attending currently would agree with me.

Topix rules for local news! You read it here first and they were right. How about that poor woman who lost her job for telling the truth. For shame. Wake up Rome before it's too late!

It's too bad the all knowing bishop has to make these decisions. The money is way more important than a childs safe education I suppose. I wish you "kids" the best and head to Notre Dame. I wouldn't want my worst enemy going to RFA.

RCH students should go to Notre Dame. Notre Dame is full with corrupt Italian wops and Lebannese Sleaze.

For someone who purports to be Catholic, you sure sound like a troll.

I was one of the supportive people you were talking about, but I want to remind you that the RCS Festival is a fundraiser for your school. The people that are showing up are actually doing your school and your church a favor, so it's not very wise to insult them for attending, or to act like they are encroaching and your territory when you have invited them in.

Isn't the main purpose of this website to gossip, whine and complain? And just because you have the name 'Mayor' in your little username doesn't put you in charge of this website. If you're tired of my whining, don't read it. And did I say I was a girl? Don't tell me what type of panties to wear, thank you very much. Have a nice day, you little Mayor, you!
