Horndog High (James Madison High School nickname)

Brooklyn’s James Madison High School was dubbed “Horndog High” by the New York (NY) Daily News in December 2009, after two language teachers were caught by a janitor for apparently engaging in sexual relations in an empty classroom. The nickname “Horndog High” could potentially apply to any high school where sexual relations (involving students or teachers) occur on the school grounds.
Wikipedia: James Madison High School (New York)
James Madison High School is a public high school located at 3787 Bedford Avenue, in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, New York, and educates grades 9 through 12. It is part of Region 6 in the New York City Department of Education. The current principal is Joseph Gogliormella.
Built over 75 years ago, James Madison has graduated four Nobel Prize winners, famous musicians, authors, sports players, and a United States Supreme Court Justice.
Following the 2008 election there are two sitting U.S. Senators, Bernard Sanders (I-VT) and Charles Schumer (D-NY), who are graduates of James Madison. Former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN), is also a graduate.

There are more sexy shenanigans at Brooklyn’s Horndog High.
The day after the Daily News reported that two James Madison High School language teachers were busted “undressed” in an empty classroom, sources said a third educator is being investigated for getting too personal with a student.
Social studies instructor Allison Musacchio is under investigation for having an inappropriate relationship with a male student, sources said.
It is the second scandal in as many days to rock the Midwood school where New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Major League ballplayer Frank Torre once walked the halls.

Heeeere’s ... Horndog High!
The sexy scandal involving two female James Madison High School teachers hit the late-night shows this week, with David Letterman and Conan O’Brien cracking wise.
In their monologues, the funnymen joked about French teacher Cindy Mauro and Spanish instructor Alini Brito, who were tossed out of school when a janitor claimed he found them undressed in an empty classroom.
“Say what you will, this is the first time being a high school janitor has paid off,” Letterman said on his CBS broadcast Wednesday.
“The teachers, in their defense, said it was show and tell.”

‘Horndog High’ teachers Alini Brito, Cindy Mauro to be charged for alleged lesbian tryst

The “Horndog High” teachers might want to dust off their résumés.
The city Education Department is gearing up to charge the two Brooklyn romance language teachers with misconduct, four months after the Daily News reported they were busted naked together in an empty classroom.
Married Spanish instructor Alini Brito, 30, and French teacher Cindy Mauro, 34, were yanked from James Madison High School last November after a janitor barged in on them and reported the apparent tryst.
Department of Education officials said Tuesday that an investigation into the tenured pair substantiated the allegations, setting them up to be punished.
