Total waste of taxpayers money to build this school, built on a swamp. Could have put money into re-vamping existing school. 221 students? doubtful, especially when their school buses carry 5 to 6 kids no more than a mile, to and from school. There isn't more than 40 homes in, and around this school. Total waste. I would be willing to bet there isn't more than 100 kids that attend this multi-million dollar school. And by the way, most of the contractors who built it, didn't get their money.
