Unremarkable school in unremarkable medium-sized district. Not encyclopedic. Unless there is proof that Moses went there, Delete. Rlquall 21:25, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Article isn't about the school, it's about the Mount Sinai School District. Nothing in the article establishes any uniqueness or notability for the district. The article forthrightly states that its three sentences are "from about the district" making it technically a copyvio. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 23:34, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC) Note: entire contents of article as of this writing:
The Mount Sinai School District has a current population estimated at 11,000 with a student population of 2,200. We are located on the north shore of Long Island (New York), approximately 65 miles east of New York City. The District covers an area of approximately six square miles." from about the district

  • Abstain. Which is it, is the article about the high school or the school district? I think the original author must have been confused. —[[User:Radman1|RaD Man (talk)]] 07:24, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Retitle to indicate it's the district, clean up. Or merge to the relevant town. We shouldn't be getting rid of all this school stuff (Rambot gives far worse), just merging it into things major enough to merit articles. -- Jmabel | Talk 08:09, Dec 1, 2004 (UTC)
    • I rather disagree. Rambot is bad, but at least it combines several datasources to make a skeleton for a correctly-titled article. Most school articles have improper names, facts from a single source (if that—some are clearly off the top of heads), and serve no use for future editors. Someone working with rambot output adds to it. Anyone working with this rubbish would have to start over. In other words: it does not help us, but it does make us look bad.
