There is a YouTube video circulating that looks at the possibility of Patapsco High School Center for the Arts in Dundalk having ghosts in the building.

The name of the YouTube channel is called Patrapsco (Yes that is the correct spelling) and it produced a high-quality video called “Patrapsco: The NeverEnding Mystery of School Spirit”.

The video examines the possibility that a former teacher who has passed away in 2009 has his spirit present at the school during performances. The video claims that the former teacher is not there to scare the audience, but he is there enjoying the shows.

There is also the belief that a former student name “Billy”, who passed away in the mid 2000s, is joining his former teacher at the school.

According to its Youtube page, Patrapsco is an unaffiliated social media group “Patrapsco” at Patapsco High School Center of the Arts. The video was directed by Gianni Paquian, Destiny Healey and Peyton Layer.

Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, the 24-minute video is interesting to watch.
