Abandoned elementary school

This school was originally built in 1958 and served its community grades K-6 for 50 years as the only school in the immediate area. In 2008 due to rising costs of maintaining an already dated structure aswell as declining enrollment the district decided to close the school by the end of the 2007-2008 school year, forcing all the students to be bussed off to other schools in surrounding towns. For the past few years now I've always wanted to check the building out so last month I decided I would finally check it out (this is how I got into urban exploration).

PS: I currently don't have a nice camera so I used my phone, this will most likely be the case for the next few months until I can actually afford to get one as I am currently a broke college student.

Nature has a way of reclaiming itself

Crazy thinking about all the memories that came and went through here

There are plenty of us here that don't have fancy camera equipment. After all, this is an urbex site. There are a couple comments here and there, but generally you won't here anything about image quality unless you post in the "critique" thread.

The covered outdoor B-Ball court is cool - I have never seen one of those before.




Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

Cool find! Found an abandoned elementary school in California a couple weeks ago and abandoned schools have easily become by favorite to explore.

Pretty neat find. Nice camera or not, these are still some great photos! It's incredible how after such a short time, nature begins to reclaim the land. Are you able to get any internal shots?

Thanks for sharing!

A very interesting school, I just love it. I recently came across one site https://graduatewa.../romeo-and-juliet/ and I'm thinking of playing a small scene there. Until the university asked romeo and juliet essays, he didn’t know at all who they were.
