Help Megan further her acedemic future

My name is Kelly Long. I graduated in 2015 from Robert E. Lee High School. During my years at Lee High School, I was heavily involved with SGA serving as an officer, attending monthly student meetings, and being a student rep with the Advisory Committee for Students with Disabilities. My younger sister Megan Long who is a currently a freshman. Megan is an exceptional student, involved with NJHS, A/B honor roll all of middle school (and continuing now with her exceptional grades in high school) taking all honors courses and finishing her year in middle school with a 4.2 GPA. Megan is very self-driven and my family and I couldn't be more proud of her. She knows what she wants to do and of course, we want to make sure she's on the path to success for college and her career. 

Megan told us back in middle school that she has been researching colleges and feels that an AP classes & diploma 

would be ideal for her college and career path. My mother submitted a high school curriculum student transfer twice for South County High School and got denied. As I am going into my third year of college I learned a lot and reflected on what I could have done differently. I, unfortunately, wasn't able to attend my dream school due to finances and was unable to attend college classes that could benefit me in my pursuit of disability advocacy. I don't want my sister to go through the same thing. As much as she has worked and is dedicated to school I want her hard work to pay off. It would also make our commute easier since we live and work closer to South County than Lee.

We met with the principal and even though Megan had the facts on why she should go to south county (the colleges to apply to accept AP vs IB, the learning technique she believes is a better fit for her etc.) and that meant nothing to her; she did not even consider Megan’s VALID reasons having her mind already set that she would not let Megan transfer regardless of her valid reasons. 

I decided to create this petition because I believe if Megan has the grades, self-motivation, and facts on why she should go to south county why should she be denied? I am asking to just take a few minutes out of your day to sign (and if you would like to say a few words on what you think) to let our voice be heard. I appreciate you taking the time to make this possible.
