Anyone interested in helping pick the name of the new Bellevue-area high school has until Thursday morning to fill out a survey rating each of the six finalists.

Why it matters: Mayor John Cooper has committed $129 million to build the new school, which will replace the current Hillwood High School. The public's vote will help determine the new name, and those interested can take the survey here.

  • The six finalists: Bellevue, Bellewood, Cecil Branstetter, Hillvue, Hopepark, and James Lawson.

Driving the news: School board member Abigail Tylor will present the results of the survey to the naming committee prior to the Nov. 23 board meeting.

  • Tylor says she's impressed with some of the creative school names suggested by students. Some of her favorites are Fortnite High, Mr. Meredith's Cheeze Wiz Factory High and "Insert student's name" High.
  • "My personal favorite was Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good High School," Tylor tells Axios. "Any kid who knows his 'Zoolander' should be rewarded."
