  • Back in the 1960's this was the best school around. We all grew up in Carol City, from elementary, junior high to high school. We all lived in the neighborhood "hood" and it was great. Things changed a lot over the years. But I still have great memories or "Carol City"!!

    A long time ago student!!!
