Champions of Learning, ARR!
If we still lived in Tucson when Miriam entered middle school (which is not going to be the case - thus the subjunctive tense), she would attend Amphi Middle School. I feel so bad for the kids who go there. Their mascot is, of all things, a pirate. And not just any pirate, a scholarly pirate. I think when we first moved here, it was the Academic Pirates, but they must have changed it.
Also, spray-painted in stenciled letters on a cement block in front of their building are the words "A+ School." In my opinion, any school that needs to advertise their merits in such a manner is probably not deserving of them.
Never fear, Miriam, we won't condemn you to a life of piracy, even if it is scholarly.
