David. At this point the reunion is to be held at the Kowloon on Friday November 29th, the day after thanksgiving. We plan on having a buffet and music. We don't have definitive times etc, but we have secured the room. There is a page on facebook for the graduating class of 1988 as well as a class reunion page for the class of 1988. Thank you for your help.

So I am helping put together the 25th year reunion for the Class of 1988. Our class total was 414 I believe graduating that is. We started a page on facebook under Malden High School Class of 1988, it is a closed group but we currently have 281 people in it, and it appears there is a lot of interest when it comes to a 25th... So please join in if you are in fact part of the 1988 class.... Thank you

Greg, It's funny you choose not see that it's a public school. LIke I mentioned, when they started out, they had more than enough spots available for anyone and everyone. I lived in melrose, and like most charters, they have to take kids from surrounding communities because they are in fact PUBLIC CHARTER schools. The lottery is due to supply and demand my friend, the facts are that people don't feel comfortable sending their child or children to what the towns around here have to offer, so this is an alternative to it. For the record, not every kid gets into their neighborhood school either. Capacity is and has been a problem for many years in many towns. It's funny to me as well, MVRCS is being scrutinized for being successful and buying up properties. As an owner of 2 businesses in this city, I applaud the fact that they can take what the GOVERNMENT gives them and apply it to buying properties and building structures that were nothing buy eye sores for many years in our city. i.e. the old davidson chevrolet property. This seems like a hate board against Neil Kinnon, but it's not surprising. People usually bash Malden after they leave it, something Neil has vowed to not do.

Parent of two here as well, and I can't say enough good things about it. Of course I was a victim of Prop 2 1/2 so maybe measuring the Malden Public Schools (back then) vs. what MVRCS does now isn't fare. I as well dont have to agree with everything that the charter does, however they have a proven track record and let's be honest, some people are just angry that their children weren't accepted in the lottery. It's kind of funny because when my child first got in back in 2003, I as a melrose resident was looked at laughed upon down on the soccer fields, baseball fields etc... Then the graduating classes started happening and those laughs to questions, then the inability for all Melrose kids to get in turned the local paper into a back in forth of what Melrose public was doing wrong vs. what the charter was doing right. Yeah anyways, you will never make everyone happy....

You know what's weird ? There are other city workers in different positions that have been offered rehab and such. This seems to be more of a personal attack on the officer in question. Something doesn't smell right here, hopefully his union and lawyer will step in and give him a fair and reasonable hearing as such. No charges were brought either correct ?

Bobby C's is amazing... there isn't a restaurant around that has the aura that Bobby C's has on a daily basis... Hands on owner that loves to make the rounds and makes you feel like a friend....
