Isn't Community High an alternative school? At least, that's what I thought it was when I lived in Ann Arbor.
At one time it was an "accepted by application only school"... In Houston they were called magnate schools, however, in Houston they were required to enroll a cross-section of the community based on race and all learning abilities. From what I remember, Commie High only accepted the brightest and the best of the kids of the aging hippies/inteligencia that colonized Ann Arbor.
Is that because only the rich oil men could send their kids there?
No, steel and railroad scions were also welcomed.
