And this is the wing they’re gonna stuff Commie into.

Just kidding, all you Commie High grads (the two that read this). As far as I know, there are no plans to try to assimilate The Planet Ann Arbor’s popular alternative high school into its newest comprehensive, the vertigo-inducing Skyline High. You never know when that might change though and I don’t particularly trust elected officials in general although there is one school board member that I actually know personally and I know her heart is in the right place.

So, we are getting a new high school here. We have two huge comprehensive high schools already, Pioneer and Huron. And there’s Community (Commie) High downtown, where my alternative little theatre rats went to high school. And a couple more small schools of “choice” that work with the kids that, well, I’m at a loss for words here, have difficulties conforming to a huge, bureaucratic environment.

I wasn’t a supporter of the new school for reasons too complex to describe in this blahg entry. But we’re getting it anyway. It’s on N. Maple, just north of M14 and it opens in the fall. My kids would attend Skyline High if they had been born, lemme see, 10 years later than they were. Er, not putting Commie High into the equation, that is. It takes a lottery to get in there and they both won it, thank the gods!

We had a chance to tour the school during an open house a few weeks ago. I was dizzy dern near the whole blasted time. Going up and down the staircases gave me the same feeling I used to get in the stairwells when my kindergarten class at “Stinkin'” Lincoln went upstairs to the second floor to show off our Halloween costumes to the big kids. Vertigo anyone? *Inside* a building? Of course, I also got that way at Ikea. So.
