High School Parking The parking at the High School is very close and cars are often parked illegally. Many people park in “no parking zones” where fire trucks should be able to get in. Making the parking lots bigger should fix this.

Scott Shea Talks About The Gym The gym floor has no cushioning. It is laid right on cement and causes many injuries. The gym roof leaks. The bleachers are old and very hard to pull out and push back in.
High School Cafeteria Needs More Space Kids sit on the radiators and on the floor in the hallways. Each kid should have a table and chair to sit and eat lunch.
High School Students Talk About Cafeteria “It’s pretty tough to get a table,” says Aaron Dulac, a Sophomore at Cape Elizabeth High School. “I think its harder to get a chair than a table,” said Eric Sprague. Aaron Dulac Zach Rioux Eric Sprague
HS Needs Storage Space! These two ladies (behind the soccer goals) work in this storage area. It is an office and a storage room! The Gym/Athletic equipment and uniform storage are spilling in hallways.
Band Room This room is supposed to be used for band practice. It doubles as a storage room.
Science Labs Need New Equipment The science materials are about 33 years old. Science technology has changed in the last 33 years and they need updated equipment. The storage space and the sinks are revolting!!
