A while back, a letter to the editor questioned the possible placement of three schools in the southwest quadrant of the city. In view of the fact that it is the only quadrant that has no middle school or high school, it would seem logical to address that discrepancy early on.

The middle schools and grade schools are operating at almost 100% capacity, and with the forecast of population increases due to the expansion of Mayo properties, there is a definite need to prepare for those contingencies sooner rather than later.

Rochester residents have always placed a high value on education, and in our early years in Rochester, beginning in 1950, there was always great support for educational needs. I hope that will continue to be true.
