Keep Chaparral’s true legacy

Ojai’s continuation high school doesn’t need a name change. The attitude toward it does. A few weeks ago, someone mentioned that Chaparral was getting a new name. It was going to be called Legacy. The idea was that the name, Legacy, would bring Chaparral a new respectability. But no matter what you call a continuation high school that has flexibility, and attempts to reach all types of students, it will face the stigma of being “less than,” especially in an insular community such as Ojai.
