Another High School Would Lead to More Student Opportunities

Pro: Due to the fact that there are over 3,000 students in Crown Point High School, building a new high school is a great idea. This is an inevitable decision that many large schools have to make. Having a new high school will be helpful because there would be more space in the hallways, more opportunities for students to connect with teachers, and fewer hazards because the school would be safer. Making a new high school will help bring greater amounts of students, keeping Crown Point High School a top-notch school, which would lead to exceptional opportunities. Furthermore, this would not just lead to greater opportunities, but possibly be an increase for our economy by adding jobs and various career paths.

 

Another High School Would Lead to Less Community Between Students

Con: Having another high school would take away discourse communities where students find themselves within the high school. With students coming from Saint Mary’s, Wheeler, and Taft, they meet new people for the first time. If Crown Point were to build another high school, students would lose this opportunity, and feel closed off from the rest of the community. Meeting new people who have similar interests and aspirations is one of the best parts about entering high school. What would happen if we built another high school? Students would not get the camaraderie that they get in the school and clubs. Right now, another school is not in the future for Crown Point, and it should stay like that.
