I attended EJ Toll Jr. High from 8th to 9th grade 1967-1968. It was called 'Jr. High' then, now it's called a middle school, grades 6-8. I just remember that this was a very good school and the teachers were excellent at their craft. Some of my classes were at least HS level, especially my Latin class with Mrs. De Grassi.....boy, was she hard! But we learned alot more because of her very high standards. Alot of wonderful memories from this period in my life as a young student. I can only hope the teachers there now continue to hold the high standards that mine did back in those days.
I love Toll Middle School because of all the great teachers, staff, and the education it offers.
