Hey, I think a great improvement for the Noble High School page would be if administrators stopped deleting all the things students put up, unless it's obviously garbage. The thing about the Houses is factually accurate information and should be left alone. \u2014Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.147.27.206 (talk) 23:00, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

It meets Wikipedia:WikiProject_Schools guidelines. Thanks!Rob ryan92 (talk) 22:42, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

In my opinion it fails the basic premise of Wikipedia--it's minutia/WP:SCHOOLCRUFT of excessive detail that has little encyclopediac worth. Note that the subject of an article has by policy zero say over the content. The whole subject itself does not even appear to meet WP:GNG, so the last thing it needs is to be bulked up with excessive detail to dwarf the little content that is of interest/worth to others. For example, I replaced the large-looking table of specific data about exactly how many of each type of class is required with a few sentences stating the topics and even delimiting which are normal subjects vs additional/special features. There's not a school in the world that doesn't require certain numbers of various courses in topics such as math, etc and the information isn't of interest to anyone except students and admissions officers (and they would know to look at a more official source), so it's WP:UNDUE to expend a lot of space elaborating on it. You will want to remind your employer that WP is not just another place to manage their image. DMacks (talk) 13:59, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

You just don't understand. You sir, are very rude. I am providing very good information to this WIKI. (How about you try to find secondary sources about a high school in rural maine) Why would i need to promote a public school, it is not like it a private school, where image really counts. If you really want to fix an article for its issues, then i would recommend you try Berwick Academy. That's all for now. Rob ryan92 (talk) 11:10, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Bottom line is that by policy wikipedia is not a collection of all information on all things. You have already stated that at least some of your edits are being done explicitly at the request of the school, therefore you have a WP:COI. And it's not surprising that any organization would have difficulty recognizing their own unconscious desire to look good, or at least try to manage how they are seen (as you yourself have stated they instructed you). It's no wonder they may not recognize why they can't have the page about them be "the way they want" when that is not in keeping with the policies and guidelines of the site. Honestly, I can't understand why this school has an article at all, but that's an issue for another day. DMacks (talk) 02:40, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, I will respect wiki policy, but by no means will i respect what you say. I will follow wiki policy to the letter, and I will not let you bend the rules to fit your own personal agenda. I was lying to you when i stated that stuff about the school wanting the info to be retained. It was a ploy that did not work on you. So most of this was unnecessary, i was just trying to anger you. I know for a fact that many wikipedians do not agree with your actions and judgements, and I will not submit to your inappropriate treatment of editors. And don't think about deleting this page. As of now, it complies with all wikipeida policy. It provides many good pieces of information, even if it is all primary sources. And you clearly did not read my last thing about this being a public school, where image does not count. I'm done. Just let me continue to make edits to policy, and don't bother me anymore.

in the infobox, the deans are listed before the principals. At NHS, the principals are higher up than the deans. The dean title will not move down. Any way to do this?? Berwick writer (talk) 16:08, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Templates display in the order listed in the template, not where the template is included. You could consider adding: <br /> Deans : <br /> Claudia Stephens,<br /> Andrew Korman immediately after the principal's name in the template, which should stay unless challenged.
