School class photos (Lawrence, MA)

This open collection of class photos at present only included photographs from Catholic institutions in the city of Lawrence. Every year schools have individual images taken of students by a photographer. In the case of grade and middle schools the individual images are grouped on a page with the teacher. As the 1970s wore on there was less and less enrollment in Catholic primary and junior high schools. For a period of time several schools (St. Rita’s, Holy Rosary, St. Anne’s, and St. Joseph’s)combined and settled in one building or the other calling themselves the inter parochial schools. St. Mary’s remained the girls’ Catholic High school on the north side of the river until 1978. At present Lawrence has two Catholic High Schools, Notre Dame and Central Catholic, and three grade-middle schools, Our Lady of Good Counsel, St. Patrick’s, and St. Mary’s.
