Television: The Real-World "School Of Glee"
"According to Ralph Opacic, founder and director of the Orange County High School of the Arts in Santa Ana, Calif., "Glee" may soon render [the traditional] brand of show choir obsolete. His choir program at Los Alamitos High School was so successful that he landed a government grant to open OCHSA as a branch of Los Alamitos in 1987. The school became an accredited charter school in 2000 and relocated to Santa Ana. Now in it's 24th year, the school has a student body of over 1,300 and ranks consistently among the top public high schools in the nation." (How "Glee" is changing high school choir)
