The orig­i­nal idea for this page came from the book Scar­bor­ough High — A his­tory 19591999. Of course as with any pub­li­ca­tion, it only rep­re­sents a point in time. Now you can add the names of promi­nent peo­ple who attended Scar­bor­ough High using the form below. If you wish to add infor­ma­tion to an exist­ing entry, just sub­mit it using this form and we will merge the infor­ma­tion manually.

You can also dis­cuss the mer­its of the peo­ple on this list on our forum
