It is also noteworthy for its mascot riots, which took place after the school went through desegregation in 1969. The riots commenced in 1972 and went on throughout the next year. Black students rioted over the mascot, which was a "rebel" at that time. The official school song was Dixie and the Confederate flag was often flown at school events. Needless to say, this offended some people, and offended more when they were illegalized for use in schools by a U.S. district court. Several people were shot in the chaos, and many demonstrations (some of them violent) occured.
In conclusion, Escambia is indubitably a shitty high school, full of angsty, underpaid staff members, and juvenile delinquents.
You must be part of the special education program.
