An account of the opening of a new high school in Fontana, California includes the following excerpt:
“This will have a positive impact across the district,” said Fontana Unified
Superintendent Cali Olsen-Binks. “It will relieve overcrowding at Fontana High and benefit students instructionally.”
The mostly indoor campus is organized under a Greek theme.
Teachers will be known as philosophers, the library is named Socrates Gallery and the social area is Zeus’ Lounge.
“Our goal is to emphasize learning at the highest level,” Uribe said.
To make sure students do well, the learning culture will focus on both enrichment and intervention.
I guess the Socrates thing works, but considering Zeus’ amorous proclivities, is the naming of the social lounge intended to be ‘inspirational’ or just an admission of what goes on there?
