New Hanover school officials and many others came together to celebrate the re-opening of the Mary Mosley performance learning center. The district revamped the former Lakeside High School this school year, and turned it into a non-traditional high school with computer based learning. Honored guest Mary Mosley was there to inspire students to continue their path of learning. "This is something I've always wanted. Just to make sure that children get the best education they can get, and to develop into citizens of worth," Mosley said. The Mary Mosley Performance Learning Center is part of a partnership with communities in schools. It also receives funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

This is the old Lakeside - a school that used to take middle and high school students that were long term suspended - which was an EXCELLENT school. Now Mosley will still take suspended kids - but if they have IEP or learning difficulties then they have NO WHERE to go! Once again the "NO Child Left Behind" program has Failed! If you have a child that has trouble or learning problems then they are left behind.
Lakeside as this communty knew it is no more. However, long term suspended students are able to attend the New Hanover County School Pathways Program. This is an option for middle and high school students. Mosley is a separate school. The students apply, are tested to assess if they can read and do math AT LEAST on the 8th grade level, and then they and a parent are required to take part in a panel interview. It is then decided whether or not the student will be accepted in to Mosley. Students with IEPs are able to apply. It is not a behavioral school or an alternative school. The school is open for tours everyday.
What a neighborhood to store tens of thousands of dollars worth of computers!
Yes the area around Mosley may not be the best, but you havnt heard any news stories about $30,000 worth of damage to windows at the school, like you have one school in a so called good area. Or maybe on the other side of town in another "good area" a school having $11,000 worth of damage done to windows. Say what you will about the school, but it is not the same place it used to be.
As I understand it, the exact scum responsible for all the damage at Ashley High are now attending Mosely/Lakeside School. Someone else's problem now
