I live in a suburb, they just got finished building the elementary school my son might go to next year. The thing I don't like about it is they are building a high school right next door to it. the elementary only goes to grade 4. I find that  very concerning.  I just don't trust high school or middle school students around the younger children. It just pisses me off that they would bring them so close together. why couldn't they put the high school near the middle school ? Like I have seen every where els. Am I the only one that see's the problem in this? Sorry just had to rant about it.

Yeah I don't see what the big deal is either. I know at my highschool there was always teachers outside before and after school so if you are concerned maybe suggest they do something like that.

unfortunately their supervision is severely lacking. My friends 5th grade son was able to leave the school without them even noticing for almost half the day. And there has been several cases like that.

Quoting itssweetness:

no big deal - i went to school in the same building through 8th grade. The HS was in that same building as well but I ended up going somewhere else.

High school students generally do not bother themselves with elementary-aged students. I'm a high school teacher and we have an elementary school next door. Many of my high school students are responsible for walking their younger siblings to school. I have never witnessed or heard of a problem. To be honest with you, middle school students tend to emulate the older kids and be more easily influenced by them to do inappropriate things, not the younger ones.
