added POV tag to music section[edit]

There appears to be a little edit battle going between the orchestra and the marching band. Lots of this info is non-encyclopedia, and none of it is referenced.

Removed sentences deemed not necessary in order to bring the article into a neutral point of view. Removed POV tag. ndyguy 23:00, 11 August 2006 (UTC)


no battle- just facts were posted, at least by the orchestra. I know that since I am the director and contributor to the wiki. If I am no longer allowed to edit information about my own group, then I would at least like to add some corrections. Please change my name from Mrs. to Ms. , and Totally in Tune aired in the summer of 2002. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wallabbie (talkcontribs) 14:26, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Removing wikify[edit]

The article looks well-formatted to me, it just needs editing for references.

Wikify tag removed again. At this time, sources still need to be cited. ndyguy 23:18, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

About the Veto of the Bulldogs Name[edit]

As a graduating student from the '01 class of Plano West Senior High School, aka the first graduating class, and having been schooled entirely in the Plano Indepedent School District from Kindergarten until 12th Grade, I can say that in 10th grade at Shepton High School, the president for the upcoming Senior High, Phil Saviano, and his faculty had the student population of both Jasper (only certain students since some go to Plano Senior High School) and Shepton vote on a new mascot since we would be the first class. We voted on the Bulldogs, but the spirit groups, in particular the drill team and their parents, raised concerns that since we would be a "dog" mascot, the females could be teased as "bitches" by rival schools. This was the explanation given to students as to why we had to re-select another mascot in a follow-up vote, in which the Wolf was selected. Apparently even though a wolf is still part of the "canine" family, its selection was upheld. --TSA 03:35, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Dark Side of the Moon[edit]

Did the theatre department really perform the Pink Floyd album? That's where the wikilink is currently pointing. I'm assuming there must have been a musical with a similar name, but we don't seem to have an article about it. There are a few novels and films listed at Dark side of the Moon (disambiguation); someone should see if any of those are more applicable. Brian the Editor (talk) 15:55, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Steroids Controversy[edit]

The section covers an event from close to ten years ago, and in its present state, is completely uncited. I see no reason why this should be in the article, especially as more recent events (construction, realignment, etc...) are not mentioned. Given the lack of citations and its nebulous relevance, I am going to remove it. Please post if you have objections. Mpgviolist (talk) 03:24, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Additrional source required for current enrolment[edit]

Can someone find a reliable source to confirm the current enrollment? A recent edit [1] sourced to the University Interscholastic League shows a doubling of the enrollment from 2750 to more than 5500. I have found sources from 4 or 5 years ago that show that a restructuring was expected to increase the school's enrollment significantly, but the projected enrollments were much smaller than 5500. The NCES data for 2013-2014 shows an enrollment of 2580 http://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/sch_info_popup.asp?Type=Public&ID=483510008150 Meters (talk) 20:59, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Since the school only has grades 11 and 12, perhaps the Athletic association's number is just an estimate of how many the school would contain if it had all grades, for the purpose of assigning the school to an appropriate division? Meters (talk) 21:29, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
That would be my guess too. Enrollment figures from athletic sanctioning bodies are notoriously unreliable, as they are usually a formulary representation of eligible students, not the actual enrollment. John from Idegon (talk) 22:23, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll use and source the NCES data then. Meters (talk) 22:27, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
