Should Crofton Have a High School?

Crofton Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families with weekly topics.

Moms Talk is a new feature on Crofton Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.

Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Crofton. Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.

Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.

While high school may seem a long way off for Crofton parents with little ones, the process for getting a new school approved, design and built can take years. So, this week's question is:

Should Crofton have a high school?

Please join in the conversation by leaving a comment below (note you must sign up to be a Patch user before you can make comments on the site).

Tune in next week for another question from our Crofton Patch Moms Council or send your questions to susan@patch.com and put "Moms Talk" in the subject.

This is a fascinating, objective and thoughtful view of Crofton, its history and lingering feelings in the community. Thanks, Ed!

I think it's like beating a dead horse...and it's not going to happen unfortunately. Perhaps for my grandchildren... All of the preconceived notions of what Crofton stands for shouldn't come into play when we are talking about overcrowded schools, long bus rides, and no money in the county budget.

Consider this: Anne Arundel Population in 1990 = 437,000. 2010 = 530,00. 2020 (projected): 560,000. AACS has not created a 'new' high school since 1982.
