            It's a secondary school. i.e. High School/ Prep School. Not a college or univeristy.

            DJ--thanks for letting this play out.

              I guess "warm" is relative. What is consider warm (distance wise) on the west coast might not seem that warm (or close) to someone living back East.

                    One of the three Medal of Honor recipients was a physician in the Navy. He also received the Army's Distinguished Service Cross and was awarded the Silver Star six times. These awards made him "the most highly decorated medical officer in the history of the United States armed services." (Joel T. Boone)
