It seems strange that some schools are considered bad or failing. Our son and daughter attended Woodmore, Dalewood and graduated from Brainerd. At that time they were three of the best schools in Hamilton County. We bought a home in Woodmore so our kids could attend these schools.
Another strange thing is the fact that it seems no one is interested in the reason that the schools were so great and what happened to them. What caused the way they are today?
Most people use the media's favorite words, "it might be, it could be, it may be, it should be and I think." It seems no one really wants to know, just complain.

What happened to these great schools was and is nothing more than its students, parents and local community.
1969 and 1970 were the last of the great years at Brained High. The Rebels, Dixie and the Confederate heritage was stripped and replaced with a black panther and has been downhill since.
Even an old car can be kept clean and tidy. Maybe someone will get the hint.
