St. Laurence High School issued a statement today regarding the stunning announcement last night by Queen of Peace High School that the school intends to close at the end of the current term.
“St. Laurence High School is deeply saddened to hear the news that Queen of Peace High School will be closing their doors. For over 50 years, Queen of Peace has been an excellent neighbor to St. Laurence,” the statement read.
The statement went on to say that St. Laurence plans to work with Queen of Peace and provide help in any way they can.
The all-boys school seemed to put to rest rumors that have been circulating for years that St. Laurence would combine with their all-girls school neighbor. “St. Laurence remains committed to providing a quality Catholic education to its students and has no current plans to go co-ed,” the statement read.
