The day after the Nov. 3 election, residents of Cherry Hill will return to the polls for a more local ballot issue: the name of their new high school.School 181 opened this fall with 68 ninth-graders from the geographically isolated neighborhood in South Baltimore. Next year, the school will become a citywide magnet school with 80 students in each grade. Plans are being developed, but school officials say that half of those students will take an environmental science-based curriculum designed for the college-bound; the other half will enroll in a career-training academy.
