North End's Cluster High School, Hillwood, Judged "Dropout Factory" in Johns Hopkins Study

We have to do something about this, people. If we are serious about being a quality neighborhood we've got to find a way to turn the public high school in our cluster around. If we don't do something right now, Salemtown will not become a community that includes families because no families will want to move or stay here (including my own). Less families means less diversity for this increasingly homogeneous, empty-nester enclave.

  1. This school board is not capable of making the necessary changes. We need a board who is appointed by the mayor so the citizens can hold the mayor accountable for the success or lack thereof of our schools. Our elected school board is not qualified to make the tough decisions needed to save our schools.
