As an attending senior, I can tell you Enloe Magnet High School is pretty much two schools under one roof. Although it would be far easier to hide behind an ostensible defense of Enloe's diversity, the glaring academic and cultural divide between the magnet and non-magnet students is too obvious to overlook, yet depressing enough to ignore.
Statistics simply fail to address the stark separations within. Enloe enrolls many minority students from various ethnic backgrounds, but in all my four years there have never been more than two black students in any one of my classes. Often there are none.
Superintendent Anthony Tata's positive remarks leave me wondering whether he looked through the door of a single standard-level class. Despite being hailed as a success against segregation, Enloe remains, with few exceptions, separated and unequal within.
