@eastridge8 as a matter of fact, we have very strict rules about grades for student athletes. Our athletes must be passing every class in order to play sports. Failure to do this results in a dismissal or suspension from the team. While I don't know Tim's grades, I can assure you that they are respectable not only for a student athlete, but for any student at all.
I am currently attending SMHS as a freshman. I know it may be a hard concept for some of you to grasp, but we really do have a good learning environment where everyone respects and supports one another. I don't know anything about a problem with the so-called "inner city" students. I have befriended many of them and am unaware of anyone who wants them gone. I know this all comes down to the decisions of a bunch of biased, small minded politicians, but I really wish that every adult involved in this mess would grow up and stop acting like children. I am truly appalled at the behavior of the "adults" who bicker like this problem actually has any relevance to them whatsoever. Grow up and mind your own business, people!
