  1. Yeah I went to school here all for years and nothing like this ever happened. Nobody ever told stories and nobody ever died on campus or anything. There was literally nothing.

  2. I went to Desert Ridge and graduated in 2012. I am friends with people who attended the year it opened, and have siblings who attend now. Not only has the school never had lockers “in the halls”, as the posters above mentioned, (you did not mention PE/shower lockers so no credit there) but this a really lazy entry.

    “Kids like to creep each other out with tales of the boy who roams the halls striking the lockers.” You really felt that was worth posting and didn’t even bother to fact check. I came here to do research for a paranormal project I am working on, was intrigued to see my former school in the nearby places, and I cannot overstate how underwhelmed I am. I think I’ll have to take my research elsewhere.

    PS there are barely even hallways at that school. It’s five separate buildings with way too many classrooms in either wall to even INSTALL lockers. Seriously, speak to people who’ve actually been to, hell, even visited these haunted places at least once before posting this crap online.
