Highland High School

2108 E. 200 N, Anderson, Indiana 46012

Several years ago a young boy suffered a fatal asthma attack in the old gym.

The boy's gym instructor demanded that the boy continue running laps even though the boy had collapsed once before. Not wanting a confrontation from his domineering instructor the boy continued running. Minutes later he collapsed. The coach demanded that he get up and continue running, but a student that rushed over to the boy confirmed his death.

Today, the gym is now the schools auditorium. It is said that the boy haunts the auditorium and the back stage areas. Some have seen haunting activity on the catwalk above the auditorium.

The most reported ghostly activity is the sound of the boy continuing to run through the auditorium. Often, the sounds are accompanied by a gust of wind as someone rushing by. Others say they have seen the boy's ghost.

They have described him as being of small stature and looking terribly sad. Many have said that the ghost responds to conversation, that he enjoys being seen. Some students have reported befriending the ghost.

When I went to school there and was in theatre class, the lights kept turning off but the breakers were not flipped and no one was back there so I believe it.

I used Togo to highland. This story is true. One day my ex foster mom asked me to run to the office and see if the principal was still here. On my way back I stopped to use the bathroom. As I came out I got a drink of water from the fountain. I heard someone running and someone crying. I went into the auditorium because that's where I heard the sounds. I walked into the room and there was nothing. I hallard "hello" but there was still no answer. I was about to walk out when I heard the boy. I turned around and he was facing me. Ever since then I haven't seen or heard the ghost again.

I used to go to Highland and I had stayed after with a couple of friends. We had the bright idea of going into the auditorium after school hours, when it was completely dark and no one else was there except for the 3 of us. We all were standing on the stage until they both left me alone in the dark. I thought they had run behind the stage because I had heard someone running behind the curtains. When in all reality they were on the other side of the auditorium together. Now, I kind of a skeptic when it comes to this so I didn’t really believe what I had heard. I remember it to this day and can’t stop thinking about what else could have caused that noice. Creepy. My cousin is currently going to highland and has felt winds and stomps when she is in there.
