This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion of the article below. This page is no longer live.

The result of the debate was deletion by copyvio. - Mailer Diablo 03:45, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It does have the #1 SAT score among boarding schools in the country.
Then if that is the case, then every school with that same claim can make a page on here. That will be thousands. My vote is on Delete.Zscout370 23:54, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Boarding schools aren't as easy to merge into the geographical article as other schools, so I'm not sure what to merge to if it is not possible to usefully expand into a sizeable article without pointless padding (create a new article on boarding schools in the state - Boarding schools in Missouri?) However, the text of the article... does it read to anyone else as if it has been ripped directly from the website? This simply isn't an encyclopedia article at the moment. At the very least, thoroughly clean up. Average Earthman 00:00, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Slow Down I'm a student at the school and started the TJS page earlier today. I admit, it's baad, but only because I just put it together! True, I shouldn't have ripped info from the TJS site (my fault), but I simply wanted to make a starting point for which myself and others associated with the school could work. I say, don't delete anything until we at least have a chance to complete the article.
One of the reasons I thought it would be allright to start an article for the school is the presence of articles concerning Phillips Exeter Academy and other, similar institutions. Of course, TJ is in no way as well known as these schools, nor does it have the resources or man-power to function as they do. Still, TJ does offer similar educational opportunities and frankly, (though I feign from making this the school's single point of interest) a similar degree of success. For example: the method of teaching at TJ is similar to (if not matching) the"Harkness table"style as advertised by Exeter. If you are going to delete it, at least do it once the article has reached its completed form and you can truly judge its relevancy. -Cartweel 00:30 26 Mar 2005
VfD's last for about 2-3 weeks, so if you want to fix up the article, the clock is ticking. Plus, the other school was added, since it pumped out people that have influence the government, or still do today. Also, there is another project where all schools can be listed, so if Wikipedia does not want the article, I am sure you can find a place for this school. Zscout370 00:38, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
VfD's are supposed to last for 5 days, though they tend to get taken care of haphazardly. And since the article is a copyvio, the keep votes are inappropriate. Delete. RickK 08:36, Mar 27, 2005 (UTC)
Delete, vanity coypvio. —Korath (Talk) 01:05, Mar 26, 2005 (UTC)
Keep and cleanup. Unfortunately voting on Vfds only lasts about 5 days, not 2-3 weeks. Kappa 01:42, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Delete Not only is it a copyvio vasnity article, but Wikipedia is not boardingschoolsreview.com Chris 01:50, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Delete Blatant hype for the school, no worthwhile facts or links. AlanH

Keep. All public institutions belong in Wikipedia. --Gene_poole 02:30, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Strong delete. Non-notable, possible vanity. It's disturbing how many Wikipedians think that every public institution deserves an article. Binadot 16:54, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Delete. School vanity. Jonathunder 03:28, 2005 Mar 28 (UTC)
Keep. This pointless anti-schoool vendetta is becoming quite tiresome. All schools are public institutions, and all public institutions and facilities are notable by definition. That's right - all public institutions and facilities.--Centauri 06:31, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
You did notice that part about it being a copyright violation, right? You are aware that Wikipedia policy is to delete copyright violations, right? And are you really claiming that there should be an article on your local sewage treatment plant and the electrical box on the corner? RickK 22:25, Mar 28, 2005 (UTC)

Delete -- until there is a consistent way to record all schools, articles like this should be eschewed. Joshuaschroeder 06:54, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)
