|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.

Crazy thinking about all the memories that came and went through here
|Love the overgrowth in #4. |
Thanks for sharing
|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.

Yep, I post most of my stuff on reddit too.
|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!
|Quite well preserved is this abandoned school. It seems to me that if you restore this school, you will still be able to conduct classes there. Unfortunately, there are few educational institutions, and many students left. Although, I would say that the problem in education is not only the lack of places to study but also the lack of quality teaching. Often in their studies, students use a website https://phdessay.c...ill-a-mockingbird/, which helps them to complete assignments on writing various papers. Personally, I recently used this site to find free essays about killing a mockingbird. I often watch such abandoned buildings when I walk away from school and wonder why people don't restore them. |

It's often more expensive to restore than to flatten, and sometimes it's even too expensive to flatten. Asbestos and other hazmat. So stuff just sits, waiting for the right blend of economic factors to come along.
