A new catholic high school in the East opens to its inaugural class Monday.

Pope John Paul II High School will use three existing classrooms at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church on Dickinson Ave. in Greenville. School officials anticipate that classroom space should be enough for the first two years. The first new building planned is a gymnatorium. Officials say the entire school will be built in five years.

About two dozen students are enrolled in the first 9th grade class.

Bishop Michael Burbidge will travel to Greenville Friday to celebrate a Mass for the new school.

    Uh Oh, reputation of the second largest church in the world...hmmmm, I am not sure about your comment, I think the news media had a frenzy on this, its no different than any religion, its just not sensationalized.

    God Bless this school!!!!!! Wonderful that the Catholic Church was able to make this happen. Too bad my daughter is too old or I would have enrolled her. To UH OH, there are just as many protestant pastors as guilty. Awesome to have this in Greenville.

    In nomine....Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti....... Amen, how many remember in Latin? My fondest memories came from catholic school and led to a better education. When I went to public high school, my school had me test out of a lot of curriculum....hmmmmm

    Glad to have this new addition to our community. I know many of the members of this first class, and they are outstanding young men and women. May God bless both this school and our community.

    Maybe this would be a thought for Jamesville and Bear Grass. I really feel for those parents who chose wisely where to live to ensure a viper free education for their children. BTW, do all the parents for that merger realize that the property values in those two areas just took a massive hit? I am glad for Greenville. This school will allow kids to be educated in a disciplined environment. ANY alternative to PS is a true blessing.

    Wonderful, good for the G'ville community!!! I wish Washington could get a Catholic school. I know I got a wonderful education in Catholic school and sent my son to elementary catholic school in Florida. St. John's was a great community school, all parents had to work so many hours a month to help out and I think it makes parents stay involved and active in the school. I hope they do this at this new high school.

    Will they have uniforms? Do you think those parents will complain about them if they do?
