  • I graduated from this school, and I am proud to say that. My classmates were awesome, brilliant and charismatic. My all time favorite teacher worked there when it was first opened and retired the the year after I was in her class. Here's to you Linda Griffith!! Oh Captain my Captain. You live forever in my esteem!!
