The ghost of Stivers is a former teacher whose fully clothed body was found in the swimming pool in the 1920’s. It is widely believed that she was killed by a senior boy,who disappeared that same day.

Today the swimming pool is boarded over,but in the classroom built on top of it and in the third-floor corridor, the teacher’s ghost still walks.Sometimes only her high-heeled footsteps are only heard,at other times, the glowing figure of a women dressed all in white can be seen.
