Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.
Previously known as Whitmer High School, the sounds of a bell tolling can be heard in the middle of the night. The bell has been removed from the belfry for many years. A lifetime janitor of the school known as Oscar is said to watch every school play from the balcony in his afterlife. The seat is reserved for him and he becomes angered whenever someone sits in his seat. He also gets upset when he hears people say they don't believe in him.
