St. Anthony High School welcomed 135 new freshman students on campus late August and a total enrollment of 525 students, making enrollment for the 2013-14 school year the largest in over 20 years for the 93-year-old high school. This school year all of the students at St. Anthony will have an even lighter load to carry as all books will be loaded on iPads for daily classroom and home use. Students and teachers alike say they are pleased with the iPad Program, that learning is fun, and that their daily work is more organized and easier to manage.
