Warning regarding potentially libelous allegations on this article[edit]

Multiple accounts have added potentially libelous allegations of corruption about school personnel to this article. I realize that there has apparently been some trouble with the management board of the school, as discussed and cited in the article, and I understand that some people may be upset about that. However, unsourced allegations will not be tolerated. Addition of potentially libelous allegations in this article without the inclusion of a reliable source corroborating the allegations may lead to the offending account being blocked from Wikipedia without further notice. --Jaysweet (talk) 13:35, 20 March 2008 (UTC)


Since the beginning of December a great deal of unencylopedic text has been added to the article [1]. HitroMilanese (talk · contribs) and myself have attempted to clean up, but our edits have been undone by an editor who appears to be a student at the school, Hello1181 (talk · contribs). In my opinion, the text is overly promotional (see WP:PROMOTION) and contains overly detailed lists of department heads, extracurricular activities ( see WP:NOTDIR) and the school's internal rules for promoting students. At least part of the text is copied from the shool's web site (see WP:COPYVIO). Furthermore, tweaks such as correction of spelling and capitalisation have been reverted by this editor. Apart from the conflict of interest the editor appears to attempt to own the article. I would really like to have a discussion on this page to reach a consensus about the article. Please leave your comments. Sjö (talk) 11:59, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

I've removed some of the blatant copyvio - Wikipedia policy regarding that is not negotiable and editors can be blocked for repeatedly pasting in such content. Anyone wanting to see that text can go to the school's website (i.e. the External link). Wikipedia is not BISD's mirror site. Also note the WP:DATED problem, as details about departments and teachers will change over time, and again current information is available on the school's website. It seems reasonable to retain the sections on History, Curriculum and Achievements, although only the Achievements section currently has references. I haven't found a direct copyvio on the Teachers section, although that is too short and seems to have problems with WP:OR and WP:DATED. Hopefully there are other secondary references available to support and expand the remaining sections. Dl2000 (talk) 00:12, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

What was left didn't need the headings, so I got rid of most of those and did some other cleanup. I removed the cleanup tag, but I would like some independent sources i.e. something else than the school's own web site. Sjö (talk) 16:26, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
