SAINT PATRICK'S HIGH

Before 1954

Saint Patrick's High School history pre-dates the Quinpool Road school.  Aside from classes held in the Church basement, the first Saint Patrick's school opened on Lockman Street in 1872.

This page will focus on the history of Saint Patrick's schools prior to the opening of the high school on Quinpool in December 1954.
