Voted : Roosevelt High School ~ St. Louis, Missouri
In St. Louis, the Roosevelt High School is filled with rumors of being built on top of an old cemetery. Some believe that the headstones were removed and the bodies remained under the ground. To date, bones once surfaced to the top of the football field, and one of the graves collapsed on the front lawn, which had to be immediately filled in.
Creepy! The school in the picture looks like a mausoloeum to begin with.
Voted : Ramona Convent Secondary School ~ Alhambra, California
Over the 110 years of this school's existence, there have been many reports of strange encounters. One of the entities most often reported is a "white nun" who has been seen on several occasions serenly floating through the school library. Students have also, on many occasions, reported hearing someone playing the piano--when no one else was in the building.
And the spookiest report of all: shortly after a student tragically drowned in the school's swimming pool, stories started to circulate among the swimmers that they could feel someone underwater grabbing their legs. Many students now won't go in the pool.

Voted : SFA State University ~ Nacogdoches, Texas
This one's not too far away from me. A ghost called "Chester" is said to haunt the campus' old Fine Arts auditorium. Some say he's either an architect that died during the building's construction, or a former drama student. People have reported seeing his face in the curtains, unexplainable construction type sounds like hammers, and he was even spotted one time on stage during a play. If memory serves me right, I think there was a professor or an employee supposedly killed by him, though I can't remember any details.
Voted : Benton High School ~ St. Joseph, Missouri
When attending Benton High School in St. Joseph, you will find quite a surprise when paying a visit to the third floor during the nighttime. If you try to walk down the hallway, which measures 200 feet, it is said that you will have books thrown at you. Some claim if you walk down the hall, yelling and screaming, lockers will start to open and you will start to hear the voices of people speaking across an intercom, which seems to be coming from the main office. The school is said to possess all of these weird occurrences because it was constructed on top of an old Native American burial site. Additional tales connected to the high school includes the ghost of a secretary that passed away and has been spotted walking into the office. Even as a ghost, she still wears the same perfume as she did in life.

In the ground of the ruins of the school house there is an extreme change in temperature to very cold and in the boiler room you can hear the voice of a young boy screaming and sometimes playing.

The only thing left of the school is the sidewalks, out houses and a part of the sign that tells the date of the school. There is now a mobile home on the property.
