Ghosts at Springfield High School

Posted on September 7, 2009

Hi. My name is Caroline and I go to Springfield High school in Ohio. I am going into my Sophomore year and the past year I have heard stories about the Central Building being haunted. The Central Building has been there since my Grandma went to high school and even before that. There are a lot of different stories about the first and second floors.

On the first floor there are only a few classrooms still opened, the rest are locked or barred up. Most of the students and even the teachers say that the locked doors rattle and screaming is heard. Most people didn’t believe it because there were only four classrooms opened down there and so most students were never down there.

On the second floor, there are about two or three classrooms closed. I’m not sure because I didn’t have any classes on that floor and the only time I did go on that floor was when I was always skipping class with my best friend, Adam. There is a particular room that is talked about most. The room used to be a science lab. In 1978, there was an explosion and two students and a professor were killed. The room has double doors and there are big windows on it. It is said that when nobody else is in the hallway, you can see people moving around in there and you can hear people talking.

Now here is where my story starts. The first story starts on the bottom floor. I was sent out of the classroom for not doing my work. I was sitting at a desk outside the classroom. One of the locked up rooms was across the hall from where I was sitting. I was writing a paper about “Why I Won’t Do My Work”, so I wasn’t paying much attention to what was happening at first. So I’m sitting there writing this paper when I heard a loud noise coming from the bolted up room. Being too angry to care at the time, I paid no attention at first. It was about ten minutes before the noises got louder and I, only being the beginning of my freshman year, was scared to death. I didn’t get up and go hide in the restroom on the third floor until I heard mumbling coming from the room followed by an ear blistering scream. I ran up the stairs and when I got to the top of the staircase, all of the noises stopped. I was too scared to go back down there so I hid in the bathroom for the rest of the class period.

Later that day I had asked my friend, Stephanie, if she had heard anything since she had been in my class. She said she didn’t hear anything.

My other story is not as scary as the first. I had decided To skip eighth period, the last period of the day, with my best friend Adam. We knew the teachers wouldn’t care because it was a day before final exams. The old lab was about two classrooms down from where we were sitting, but I could still see it clearly. We were sitting in some desks talking about what classes we were going to take next year. I saw something out of the corner of my eye in the classroom. It looked like someone was walking around. I asked Adam in a very quiet voice if he had just seen it. He just nodded. We could see someone moving in the front of the class and the teacher was mumbling something about molecules and atoms. We could barely hear what he was saying but we were so scared that we couldn’t move. The voice and shadows faded after about five minutes. The rest of the class period we sat there whispering about what we saw.

I still can’t explain why these things happened and why nobody else heard the screaming on the bottom floor when it was so loud. If anything else happens this upcoming year, I will definitely post it.

    I actually went to college in Springfield and ive had a couple of odd experiences in Springfield around Wittenberg (mostly off campus housing) so i can def beleieve theres something up in the high school.

  3. Robbie Scifres says:

    why are these classrooms closed up? Are they structurally dangerous? Or are they so haunted as to make them dangerous. It sounds as if the building is becoming derelict. Why don’t they close it all up and arrange for demolition? You couldn’t make me go in that building. How do your nerves take it?

  4. Pat says:

    I really think the lab experience is what’s known as a risidule haunting… these poor unfortuneate people dies so suddenly and violently that perhaps a part of their soul/energy- (who knows what really happens after we leave this earthly plane?) remain trapped in that time forever and ever…. how you could hear a piercing scream and no-one else did is very strange (although I have heard of such things they are very rare) as if “whatever” was in that room was just letting you alone know it was there… very scary both stories!

  5. mur mur says:

    I wna know y those class are borded up u should ask the techers if ther to hounted to be in they should close the school I woulnt let my babys go there

  6. raven says:

    i think that it is safe for you to be there. but if you sense anything that is evil then turn the tail and run the other way because it will not be safefor anyone to be in that area for a while.

  7. Ellen from Florida says:

    Well… I called the school cuz i was sooooo into this story and it turns out that there were no deaths there, no class rooms have ever been closed or sealed, and they have never had a paranormal activity there.

    THIS STORY IS FALSE!!!

    I’ve talked to about 3 people already, and looked it up in the hall of recorders and there is nothing to calim this story is true.

  8. Anonymous says:

    well…. maybe in the science lab a class for ghosts were gouing on, so that’s why there’s a teacher ghost teaching there. maybe there are student ghists tere as well attended the class ^o^ just kidding, but half of me think that it’s possible thins like that exist.
    ellen maybe you ask to the people who doesn’t know that the ghost exist or about the central building & don’t believe in the story?

  9. Mellisa says:

    Ellen,
    maybe you ask this to people who don’t know the existent of the ghost & the sealed classroom? usch as people who never go to the building?
    I mean maybe only few peole know & believe in the story in that school?

    i just thought that maybe in the science class there’s a class for ghosts going on. the teacher & the students are ghosts, because they have nothing better to do & the students still want to go to class like alive kids do…^o^ just kidding, but half of me think that it’s possible such thing is exist, because they died at such young age.

    Ellen from Florida, are you sure you go the right school?
