As of this moment, there are 4036 students attending classes at Logan.
The result is crowding in the hallways and people bumping into one another.
There has been much controversy on whether James Logan should be the only high school in this area. Is it possible that Union City might need another high school? Can construction of another campus be a more effective way of making more room at Logan?
Being a senior at Logan, I have gotten used to all of the crowdedness for the past four years. Freshman year was probably the most frustrating year of them all. As an incoming freshman, I struggled to find my way around campus, due to the overpopulated crowd and the fact that I had no clue to where all of my classes were, made even more difficult by the many other students who felt lost in the same way.
After a couple of weeks however, I began to find easier routes to all of my classes. It could be that time is of the essence and that it only takes a while until you know were to go.
But the bigger question is would Logan be a more easy and accessible campus if there were fewer students? Also think about the seven minute passing time that it takes to get to each class. Could it be more easy if there were more space available to move through? (Although I do like enjoy that 7 minutes very much).
The new construction could also be another obstacle making it harder to get to class due to the excessive bodies that flood the Logan campus. So, all these ideas could definitely be a big factor in whether there should be more space at Logan. Although, it could go both ways, and that all these ideas are not the case at all.
Some students from Logan have been transferred to Conley-Caraballo High School due to the over crowdedness and that has been an effective way on spreading out high school students.
So as the years come by, changes may or may not happen, some will enjoy the idea of a less populated school, some may disagree with the idea, or some may even not care.
It all lies in the hands of the future students of Logan.
