What’s in the File Room?

If you didn’t know it was there, you wouldn’t know it was there. But what’s in there?

Directly below the Head of School’s office on the north side of Allan Building, in a space that was once a locker room for “day-hops,” is the file room. The seldom-used door to the rarely-seen room opens with a creek, and at the bottom of a short flight of stairs is a room filled with file cabinets. The grey metal containers house the records of every student who has ever attended McDonogh, no matter how long they stayed. Drawer after drawer is stacked with each student’s document file from their initial application to their final transcript.
