parents, students and alumni all shocked to hear about m-p-s’s decision to close the doors on Sidney Lanier high school. For many reasons including the overall tradition of the school and the rivalry between carver and Lanier.

“Its a slap in the face to all parents because to make a decision of this magnitude you should get input from all sides not just force a decision.” – MPS Parent

“our voices got to be heard, because you can’t make no decision like that without notifying the parents and community that go to carver and Lanier.”

“this is a historical land, landmark, so I think that it should be preserved.”
