From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Greenhill School was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was to delete the article.

An apparently non-notable school. No potential to become encyclopedic. I think it's probably in Dallas, Texas. Unless it's the one in Addison, Texas, unless those two are actually the same place, as they have the identical street address (4141 Spring Valley Road) yet different Zip codes (75224 for the one in Dallas, 75001 for the one in Addison). (See Laura Scudder's note below for clarification. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 14:19, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)). Or then again it could be one of the Greenhill Schools in Pembrokeshire or Cardiff or Worcestershire, except that I have an idea that in the UK schools don't go in for mission statements. That mission statement doesn't do much to distinguish it from any other school, and nothing in the article indicates notability. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 01:07, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Man, this is so not notable. So much so that we don't even know where the place is! Delete as non-existent. :^) - Lucky 6.9 01:04, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • D Reads like an ad "fosters passion for learning"? Puh-lease. No evidence of importance, notability, or even being different from any other school presented. Chris 01:54, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Non-notable spam. --Idont havaname 02:16, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: We can't even tell where it is, and there are plenty by this name. As for its mission statement...that's the mission statement of nearly every prep, and I've worked at preps where they took a year for a committee to draft a mission statement that came back saying pretty much those words exactly. Not notable and unverifiable. Geogre 03:06, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. While I do not hold with the non-notable argument, this article is indeed a singularly unhelpful article to have lying around. Even if the location is provided, it has no content beyond what could be placed in the town article. zoney talk 23:24, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete To clear up some confusion, the school is in fact in Addison, but the town of Addison is so small, and completely surrounded by Dallas, that mail arrives faster if Dallas used on the mailing address. This isn't uncommon with other similar suburbs enclosed on all sides by the city of Dallas (such as University Park, Texas and Highland Park, Texas, which don't have their own post offices). There are articles on other Dallas private schools such as The Hockaday School and St. Mark's School of Texas, but those are more well known outside of the city in my (biased) opinion. So I say delete unless more information is added. If anyone's interested in keeping it around, there's the school's website Laura Scudder 03:40, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
There are more important topics to attend to. If someone comes along and does write a decent article on it, then I will vote keep – as with reasonable content, it's generally a case of fait accompli, i.e. the work's already done so why delete. zoney talk 10:22, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Another non-notable school to all appearances. Indrian 04:04, Nov 16, 2004 (UTC)
