This was a JHS when I went there 70-71-72 I believe that this school probably was like going to a Boot Camp for me I did not know anybody on my first day all my friends went to Brandt you literally had to fight your way through the park back in those days I remember my older brother driving me the first couple of days but that was lame I learned a lot (How to Fight)LOL & many other things about life real soon during those 3 years all of the kids that I fought with became my lifetime friends…Good Memories

I spent 4 of my greatest years there, it was a absolute lunney bin. If the same things that went on there were to go on now there would be barbed wire fence around it and each child would be assigned his or her own child study team.When I look at the list of names from CT and think how are some of them still alive? Granted we had some good people graduate by by far and large it was a zoo. The sainted principle owned one suit and wore it every day and never cleaned it, his breath preceded him down the hall by 3/4 minutes and I could go on for pages regarding this place but it was fun but great never.

Yes, it was a great HIGH SCHOOL. It was replaced by Hoboken High School. It’s long term principal, Arthur E. Stover will be remembered forever by every student who attended while he was the principal. He was AKA Dr. Stover, Stevens Inst. of Tech. A brilliant and different man ❗
