I attended Bayonne High School grades 9 through 11. My senior year, my family moved to Governors Island, New York. I attended Curtis high school and graduated from there. However, my years at Bayonne High School were invaluable. I learned so much and my education has served me well throughout the years. My education afforded me the opportunity to be gainfully employed throughout my working years. I am well versed in art, literature, language and business, thanks to all the great teachers at BHS. I was blessed to have attended this school.
