Symbol opinion vote Comment: It's great that y'all are working on a page for your AP class, so glad to help out. That said, you want to make sure you're doing it right, and this is a great way to learn about formats, coding, sourcing, style conventions, etc. for writing. This kind of stuff is crucial in jobs that require specific kinds of white papers, research documents, etc. So when people point out things in the draft that aren't Wikipedia-ready, don't take it as a negative, think of it as a way you're learning how to meet the "goal" of an organization with your work.

By hugest piece of advice for this draft, read WP:WikiProject Schools/Article guidelines. It explains in great detail, what you should and should not have in this kind of article.

Do note, Wikipedia articles are not "fun facts for students here" or "write things you've heard about the school". They're written for a global audience, from here in perpetuity, so to be frank nobody cares if Ms Smithwoodjohnson's homeroom starts at 9:30am or if someone on the lacrosse team got a scholarship. Those things aren't going to matter in 100 years, or even five years. What will matter is how this school came to be, anything of note about the architecture of the building, any significant accomplishments the school has (not routine "pat on the back" local awards, but serious recognition), any ways it's been noted in news outside of just the local area, etc.

Put another way, there are tens of thousands of schools in America, and many more in the world, and we don't need to hear how each of them has a science class, and serves lunch at noon, and has a basketball team. We need to hear the things that are different from every other school out there. And, importantly, facts that can be sourced to published WP:Reliable sources. That's probably the second most important thing you need to read to know how to build this article.

I've left comments below regarding individual sections.

So that's my basic initial feedback; ping me on my Talk page if you need anything. MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:22, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Symbol opinion vote Comment: SUBMITTER COMMENT: A word about this page and its origins: This page was initiated this year as a final project for the AP Language class which was made up of: Ethan Cifelli, Nick Egeling, Jamie Englerth, Carly Fee, Bri Hill, Danielle Lauricella, Amy Lowe, Jordan Mangefrida, Colin Marrett, Mike McQuillan, Mary Purdy, Nick Richardson, Hannah Rosicka, Katelyn Samis, Cameron Slaven, Kathleen Smith, Ali Uberty, April Whiting, and Ethan Witkowski. It is in its infancy here and the Language classes in future years will update and expand it. Thanks to those who helped get it started and to Principal McArdle for being its progenitor.

Le Roy Junior/Senior High School is a public school located in Le Roy, New York. It serves grades 7 through 12, with students from the village and town of Le Roy, and the town of Stafford in Genesee County. It is preceded by the Wolcott Street Elementary School located in Le Roy, New York. The current LeRoy Jr. /Sr. High School was built in 2002-03 and was used for the first time for the 2003-2004 school year.

The school offers a character education program that focuses on developing vital character traits and is a program that supports all of the students in the school. The program is referred to as P.R.I.D.E., which is an acronym for Perseverance, Responsibility, Involvement, Diversity, and Empathy.

Le Roy’s athletic teams are known as the LeRoy Oatkan Knights. It is one of[which?] the nation's top 100 schools in music education.[says who?] Le Roy has several music classes and extracurricular activities available for students, a Competitive Marching Band and produces a yearly musical. The school is a part of the 5th annual College Board AP Honor Roll.[citation needed] The student to teacher ratio is 11:1.[citation needed]


Symbol opinion vote Comment: See Template:Infobox school for a tidier format to plug basic info into. Also, to be blunt, we don't need the names of any staff, other than the principal, unless that person is individually famous enough to have their own Wikipedia article. So unless there's anybody famous on the school board, we don't need it because it does the reader no good to have just names of normal people. If they want that info, that's what the school/district website are for, Wikipedia isn't a directory of routine details. MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:22, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Le Roy/Cal-Mum Rivalry

Symbol opinion vote Comment: Okay, this could be interesting, but where are your sources? We would need to see citations to, for example, newspaper articles discussing local school rivalries. MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:22, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

The Le Roy and Caledonia-Mumford rivalry dates all the way back to 1900. The two small towns’ populations combined don’t even exceed 10,000 people, but the 9,800 that inhabit them can all testify that the rivalry is as strong as ever. Slogans have been created by both towns such as: “Destroy Le Roy!” to express the emotions that run high during game time. Every sports team in both schools looks forward to the day when they can face off against their well-known opponent. Although the rivalry exists in all the sports competed, it is the most heated in football. Everybody looks forward to that one night in the fall when the two small schools battle on the field. The winning team earns their community bragging rights and the privilege to hold their head high with pride. The losers must accept the defeat and wait for next fall, promising themselves to defeat their opponents next time.

Every year since 1965 Le Roy and Cal-Mum have faced each other in football. This year will be the 50th year that the schools have played each other, and throughout the 50 years the rivalry has just grown stronger and stronger. This year (2015), in the spring, Le Roy and Caledonia-Mumford were voted the best high school rivalry around town on Rochester Rocs. The towns won the vote by more than 76%; this just proves how well-known and powerful the rivalry really is.
