From VfD:

Non-notable private school. Producing a couple of famous people isn't notable; my school has some famous alums. - Kenwarren 01:36, Jul 23, 2004 (UTC)

  • Comment. None of the "prominent alumni" are notable enough to have Wikipedia articles. OTOH, the article is considerably richer in history and detail than many of the school articles we get. It would be a decent article if only the school were notable, but I'm not yet convinced it is. Dpbsmith 02:07, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: It's well written, but the foundation story is common to a number of Northeastern US private schools. If it is rewritten by the end of VfD voting to indicate notability, I will change my vote. At present, it does not meet the bar. Geogre 13:38, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Interesting article. Interesting facts. Arevich 18:53, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • The WWI Fighter Ace and the Yachtsman probably at least deserve mention in lists of "WWI Aces" and "Winners of the Americas Cup" however, unless they learned piloting and yachting at the Donovan School, non-notable. Delete.--Samuel J. Howard 21:09, Jul 23, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Non-notable. Bacchiad 21:47, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, but mark this as a stub. More information would be good! - Ta bu shi da yu 10:13, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I see no reason for deletion. What requirements does it not meet? Nach0King

My school[edit]

I'll be hopefully adding some more useful information. The school is quite interesting, considering how small it is (~13 students per grade).

Fair use rationale for Image:Tdlogo.jpg[edit]

Image:Tdlogo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Is the Travelogue necessary?[edit]

Couldn't the travelogue info be condensed or removed? Perhaps it is important to note travel as "Thematic Education", but the details are not necessary. Skopelos-Slim (talk) 06:41, 26 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Progressive School?[edit]

It is my understanding that this is one of a relatively small number of progressive schools in the US, and if that is accurate it seems that it would be good to include that information, as well as some details about the school's educational philosophy.
