BE CAREFUL!

I just went to the school today (8-25-2010) and we were caught by the police. There are no open windows or doors to get in, and there are cameras on the outside, supposedly. Going in is highly advised against. If anyone is interested in what it looks like, I will be posting pictures on my Flickr stream shortly (they will probably be up by the time anyone reads this though. Lol.) But yeah, I do not recommend going in there. We had to talk our way out of getting arrested.

There is a way into this school, I was in there a weekend or two ago, and am planning on going back with a camera.

It is right near Orton Keyes Housing Projects (as close as Rockford comes to a 'ghetto'), and there aren't a lot of places to park, so going in is risky.

If you're interested in getting in, hit me up. I'm picky about giving information like that out, I prefer to meet with ya, make sure you aren't going to destroy anything. We did encounter a squatter, kind of a game of flashlight tag before they booked out.

Okay. Don't say I didn't warn you. Haha. I had two cops, and a detective waiting to greet my and my friends when we got out.

So, update half a decade later:

Current state of the building is still very, very sketchy. Security, thankfully, is almost zilch nowadays - no cameras, no guards. Most windows are boarded but there are several POEs, mainly thanks to the fact that it has become a hobo den.

However, that doesn't make it any less dangerous. If anything, it's more so. First off, the southern, older building is in a state of severe dilapidation with some very chancy flooring; I had a foot go through on the ground floor. What's worse is that it's less "hobos" and more "armed gangs" hanging out there; when I put my foot through the floor I was already thinking it was time to go, but it was the sound of a gun chambering that had me hauling ass to my exit. I would strongly advise against exploring the building alone or at night for this reason.

The north annex (the newer part of the school, different architecture) is fairly safe, only concerns are general debris and exposed wiring from collapsed lighting (pretty sure there's no power, but don't take chances with electricity). It's got some interesting stuff, though.

Also, brief updated info (anyone wanna edit this in for me?) as of 6/22/2015.


Security:
  • Boarded windows
  • Police patrol presence (high-crime neighborhood)
  • (No cameras seen, might be wrong)

Hazards:
  • Asbestos
  • Air quality
  • Seasonal flooding
  • Exposed wiring
  • Homeless, police activity
  • Gang presence
  • Chemical debris (caustics, drug-related)

Required Equipment:

  • Flashlight
  • Breath mask (particulates)

Recommended Equipment:

  • Puncture-proof footwear
  • Durable clothing
  • Counter-theft measures (fake wallet, no wallet, etc)

If I put something witty here, maybe someone will love me.

I went to this location a few weeks ago. went there to take pictures of the building. found an opening inside, not in the greatest neighborhood though. i did notice some cops that drove by. but they did not say anything to me because all i was doing was taking pictures. the opening inside the building is not the safest either, so be careful!
