Rise up they will show you the door. The fact is they have a waiting list a mile long to get into Chaminade.


Why is that the only answer that parents and student have to be like sheep and just be quiet? The school is funded by parents and alumni and the people managing it should have to answer to the paying customers. That's how it should work and will work if we get enough people to speak out and grab control of the situation.


Wait until the lax mommies start getting involved - they'll shake things up for sure.

Most "Old School" folks like it the way it is. "Individuals", need not apply. Besides, what you're describing, sounds like Barry's America.No thanks.

Because you chose to go to a program that has a history and tradition of doing things a certain way, but you feel it needs to change for you. No one is saying change is bad but Chaminade has established itself as an institution where faith, education and athletics are its priority and prerogative. If you don't like the way they do it then why did you go there. Maybe you should find an institution that will change a tradition just for you.

You don't have to go there. You make a decision to attend. If you dont like the rules , go somewhere else. The privileged parents who influence their public schools , coaches and administrators find this frustrating. It's an accomplishment and privilege to attend. The people who attend aren't "customers' they are part of a community, and willing pay tuition in order to provide this experience for their kids. Go try and control your pal , club team or some other cause you can bully and influence.

Thinking as an individual is what made this country great. The Chaminade way is suffocating and maybe explains why a small town team like Yorktown crushes them every year. Fear, intimidation and rigidity is a relic of the 50's. Enjoy.

He's not, and that's what you knowingly signed up for ! That 9th grader doesn't even get to play JV. They play on all freshman team.


All while my son has been lighting it up on varsity since freshman year for a great public school program, and I mean great athletically as well as academically. He will go to a top 20 school with enough AP credits to enter with sophomore standing. And he has the excitement and experience of 4 years of varsity. Is there really even a debate?




That's so not the norm. Congrats to your prodigy. If you were all that there would be no need to trash talk on a Chamnade thread.


Amen to that!

So jealousy is all you've got? Character unbecoming of a Chammy cheerleader.

It's abundantly clear the jealousy is yours. You wouldn't have to come on the Chaminade thread if that was not the case. There really is no debate on that one.

Nobody scorned, you just keep hurling insults. Maybe you know Ive be making some valid points such as:

1)Kids can get an excellent education at a public HS
2)Good lacrosse players get the experience and exciment of playing 4 years of varsity at publics.
3)Many lacrosse players from public scools are/will play at top 20 schools.
4) Public education is free.

I guess we can just agree to disagree. Good luck to you and your son. Stop being so angry. It's a free world and everyone can make the decision that is best suited for their family. I just shared my experience.

Ok, I feel the need to step in here and say that Public school education is far from free. An average of 60% of your local taxes goes to the school district, so if you're paying $10,000.00 a year in taxes your really paying $6,000.00 for your "free" education.
