The narrative is split up into several different webpages, so you will have to scroll down to the bottom of each page and click on the NEXT link to continue to the next webpage. To get to the range of years you are most interested in just click on DATES in the top right menu.

The history of the C. J. Schoen Administrative Complex Building, which was used at one time as the high school, later a middle school, and now the central office for the entire St. Tammany Parish Public School System, can be viewed by clicking on the article below.
