Is This the Real-Life 'Glee' High School?

If Glee happened at a real high school, something like this would be normal instead of extraordinary.

The gang's all here at Dallas, Texas' A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School. You've got the ambiguously gay choir teacher, the uptight white girls, the jocks, the kid in the wheelchair, the random Asian stuck in the background, the big-boned African-American girl who dances around like she's having a forced good time, and tons of grimly smiling students in a strangely deserted high school getting their groove on behind the musical number's star.

The star, of course, is the adult choir teacher who shakes his thing like tenderhearted narcissist Mr. Shuester. While Mr. Shue likes to show off his abs, Theatre Arts teacher Scot Pankey shows off his box.

I like Mr. Pankey much more than Mr. Shue. No reason.
