What a bunch of rule-breakers those Seton High girls are. Back at the school Saturday, they tromped up and down the once off-limits golden stairs. They ate muffins and drank lemonade in the chapel. And then - in the hallways where talking was forbidden and students had to walk single-file between classes - Mary Sue Frankowski broke into song. "We are the girls of Seton High / You hear so much about," Frankowski sang, stomping her feet to keep time as others joined in the ruckus. "The people stop and stare at us / Whenever we go out."

Sheppard Pratt Health Systems will move its special education school to Baltimore from Towson and build a parking garage with a gymnasium on top, according to plans it presented yesterday to the city's Design Advisory Panel. Representatives of the Forbush School told the panel, which reviews projects for the city, that their school would move into the old Seton High School building in Charles Village. Sheppard Pratt has a contract to buy the school building from investment companies controlled by the Knott family, along with the Dell House apartments and a parking lot. Officials of the Forbush School - which is for emotionally disturbed children - don't plan to alter the exterior of the high school building.

Sheppard Pratt Health System is considering moving its special education school from its Towson campus to a former high school in Baltimore, the hospital said yesterday. The psychiatric care provider has a contract to buy the former Seton High School building and neighboring Dell House apartments in Charles Village. A final decision has not been made on uses for the buildings, but the school is a strong possibility, said Lindsay Thompson, project liaison for Sheppard Pratt. The Forbush School, which educates students age 4 to 21 with behavior and other problems, must vacate its building in Towson within the next five years.

The handsome brick building at Charles and 28th streets started out as a school nearly 100 years ago. It was converted to an office building in the 1980s. Now it's coming full circle and will soon open as a school again. This time around, the former Seton High School won't be a Catholic girls school, as it was before. It's the latest expansion of the Johns Hopkins University into the surrounding Charles Village and will be used by graduate-level Hopkins students. Hopkins bought the five-story building in 2003 and is spending $7.8 million to renovate it for its School for Professional Studies in Business and Education, plus two other divisions.
