Carroll High’s closure like ‘a dark cloud’ to students

The Port Richmond high school is just one of three schools that will close in the River Wards. Two Fishtown schools will stay open, but will be affected by grade changes and an influx of new students. Charles Carroll High School freshman Larry Scruggs said that last Friday, it felt like a dark cloud had fallen on top of the school he’s only attended for less than a year — a short time, to be sure, but still enough to become part of a school environment he likened to “a family.”
