I was there so very long ago, 1956-1960 in 7th-10th grades . I was not well accepted as I was not Jewish. About 90% of students were Jewish and regularly did not attend classes on Jewish holidays. I was often in classes with one or two others on those days. Mr. Walter Vovaditch was an outstanding orchestra director and we had four great orchestras.

We have only come here for swim practice but the facilities are nice. The bleachers are comfortable and provide a great view of the pool. The school architecture and layout is impressive.
