  • I loved this school. I still have many fond memories of attending. I was a cheerleader and had great fun at all of the basketball games. We weren't real strong in football and it was really cold at most of the games but we tried!
    My favorite teacher was Mrs. Liu, she taught French 1 & 2. Favorite class was biology. I always made a and a+. Art with Mr. Cellan was a trip. It was supposed to be my unwinding class since I opted to not have a study hall and I ended up getting a B!! in it. Took my GPA down to 3.8 oh well c'est la vie! Home Ec was another was of those "easy classes" ha! Give my dissecting any day! I have been out of school for a long time now but I can stil remember the school song!
    Long live the Manitou Mustangs!
