No Name High School
article that matter-of-factly mentioned what was going on with the various schools slated for replacement. After the brouhaha earlier this year over the renaming of Admiral King High School, I guess the school board wasn't going to pussyfoot around with the elementary schools and middle schools.
Apparently, Irving Elementary is going to be replaced by Admiral King Elementary at the site of the former Lorain High School. It sure sounds like Lincoln and Hawthorne elementary schools (which will open later this year) will retain their names. (So much for my suggestions for new names: Woody Mathna Elementary or Father Guido Sarducci Elementary!)
A new Whittier Middle School is being built next to the former Southview High School. The old Whittier and present Irving Elementary may be demolished.
It's kind of funny that the new Lorain High School will be (temporarily) over at the former Admiral King High School site, and the new Admiral King Elementary will be at the former Lorain High School site.
I guess that's one way to bury the hatchet and settle old scores!
