This is what Wikipedia has to say about Findlay prep.Findlay Prep......... is the high school basketball team of the Henderson International School, a primary school and former secondary school in Henderson, Nevada. The Pilots have won the National High School Championships in 2012 and 2013. ……they travel across the United States to play games against similar programs…….. Although the high school of Henderson International closed in 2010, the school continues to support a high school basketball program.
The Pilots have won three National High School Invitational tournaments …….The program is run similarly to an NBA team, with the team - scouted beforehand - barnstorming the country to play in invitational tournaments. Due to its perceived overemphasis on basketball, critics have slammed it as a basketball factory that gives students hope of a pro career instead of education, school officials refute these allegations arguing their students' "100% qualification rate" with the NCAA, Findlay Prep was branded as "non-scholastic" by the same organisation in 2013 but later affiliated themselves with the NIAA.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Findlay_Prep
I don’t know if this link will remain standing under the amorphous board regulations on links but, in case it does, please note the emphases in bold letters.
I don’t know why you would guarantee that you can’t get in there with substandard grades, Vernster. It doesn’t appear to have the characteristics of an academic power house. The high school has folded but the team persists? Called "non-scholastic" by the NCAA? That’s like being called "anti-semitic" by Heinrich Himmler.
Kids who transfer for athletic reasons are generally not going to have the same loyalty and motivation as your average high school student. Chances are they do not value the long-term relationships like students who attend the high school of their choice as freshmen and remain. And when those kids ride off into the sunset after 1 or 2 semesters you shouldn’t be surprised…………………………….Luca
