NORTH TONAWANDA, NY (WKBW) -- Disappointed parents and grandparents expressed their displeasure with the closing of North Tonawanda Catholic School Wednesday morning.

The Diocese of Buffalo announced Tuesday that it was closing the elementary school due to declining enrollment and increasing cost.

Many parents are shocked at the decision as the school ranks very well academically, and the Diocese recently spent $60,000 to upgrade the campus building.

North Tonawanda Catholic is the last Catholic elementary school in North Tonawanda.
