During our visit to the high school, I'm hoping to gain some insight into the differences between my open public school and a selective public school. Does the selection process weed out the worst students? Does the selection process correlate with a student body that is of higher class or income? How white is the school in comparison with the other open public schools in the area? 
I'm also hoping to gain insight about the differences between an urban poor school and a rural poor school. I'm not even sure if the high school counts as "poor," so I'm also hoping to learn about that as well. 
Lastly, I really hope that we all get a chance to share our stories with the kids at the high school and that they'll feel comfortable sharing stories with us too.
