Name of the school
Some of the names of schools in Brown, 1927 are a bit different from what's given in the article:
- Berlin County Grammar School instead of Berlin Senior Boys' Grammar School
- Central Public School instead of Berlin Central School
- Kitchener and Waterloo Collegiate and Vocational School for the name given to the school in 1923-24 (instead of Kitchener-Waterloo...").
This article failed the GA noms because it failed the "broad in its coverage" coverage criteria. It failed this criteria because this article doesn't tell me what this school has to offer and most importantly it doesn't tell me what makes this school unique and different from other schools. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Tarret 21:11, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Kci logo.gif
Image:Kci logo.gif 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 ensure 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.
Alumni Description to Long
I fixed one. They should be short and sweet look at other school articles. If the person was interested they can look into the person. For example, Milt Schmidt, National Hockey League player, member of the Hockey Hall of Fame (dropped out at age 14) I think should drop the part about age, but I hesitate as there is a reference in there so I figured I would post it here for someone that knows what to do.
