  • Reviewed by Former Student on May 28, 2007
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This was my school until the 9th grade. I can still remember all my teachers names and their faces. This is where I will always think of when I remember dear friends and happy times. I am sure all my teachers have retired,and some have passed on. The last time I drove by the old high school was gone. I would love to attend a reunion of my school mates,if anyone has info on that I would like to know. I heard my best friend from grade school has past, and this saddened me greatly. To the younger alumni and present students I can only hope that you cherish the friends you made and don't drift away like myself. I let the all mighty dollar come between me and the people that mattered. PLease don't make the same mistake.
