On another post a parent discussed the lack of space in the Sci Teach school for her son, who is enthusiastic about science and math. It has got to be frustrating to parents when the district offers a program that perfectly matches their child's interests, but limits space so severely.
For just this reason, at the time the sci tech school was proposed many people called for a larger program. With enrollment declining every year, the district needs to offer more of what actually attracts students and families. Instead, the primary consideration seemed to be fitting the school into the former Frick middle school (formerly Frick elementary school). It was pointed out that many students who are interested in science in 9th grade change their minds within a year or so, making it likely that 9th grade 100 student enrollment could shrink considerably by graduation time. The district's webpages shows that there is in fact space at this time for next year's 10th grade class but not next year's 9th grade class.
What can be done? Other locations for the school should be explored, but even within the limits of the Frick building there are options. For example, anticipating attrition the district could enroll more 9th grade students. The eventual graduating class would most likely be much closer to the 100 student goal.
