OLD KERMAN HIGH SCHOOL HAUNTING
MADERA AVE (hwy 145) AND CLINTON.
Just outside of Kerman CA to the North heading towards Madera CA
Lights as in the shapes of orbs have been reported on floating around the grounds and in some of the still standing buildings. There have been many stories of this particular occurrence.
There are also reports that in some of the still standing buildings, that light can be seen in some of the windows from the road.
THE SCHOOL HISTORY
According to my research, the school was built in 1912 and in 1967 they discontinued its services as a school . (A person who went there said, that she thought it was shut down because it was not up to code with the, at the time “new” earthquake laws)
The beautiful main building that hosted the main school was burned down in 1998 by either a arsonist or a homeless person who took up residence in the abandoned building.
THE SCHOOL TODAY
The school reportedly sold at a bank bankruptcy auction. It is now used to store farm equipment. Some of the buildings have been torn down and the rubble from the mail two-story school-house is now gone. some of the original buildings still remain. The property is fenced off.
MY VISIT TO THE SCHOOL
note: My wife and I were Kerman residents for years. My wife and her family all grown up in the area We still have friends that we keep in contact with in the area.
The two time that I have visited the property for photos have been done from the road. I was not able to get in contact with the owner to gain entry. I did not see any unusual activity from my vintage points. But for quality purposes I did take the photos in daylight hours. As far as my interaction with witnesses and research, nothing was ever reported during daylight hours. I did feel creeped out, but being old and abanded, this might of been more in my mind than something paranormal.

Message Body: I attended Kerman High school from the 7th through 12th grade. The Junior High was housed in barracks on the campus and the high school used the main campus building. The bus barn was used for ag, metal and wood shops. There was a building further behind the gym used by the band. Lots of good memories. So sad that it ended up rubble. The house was resided in by the principal or vice principal. I was able to pick up a few artifacts before the fencing was put around the property. This isn’t really any help with your investigation but thought you might be interested in some history.
(if you have any photos to shear or experiences, please submit them below)
