Our school has a colorful history. It was originally built in 1913 and over the years it has gone through many changes, including being shuttered in the 1970s during the city's building boom in the northern suburbs.

The remodeled school presents a pleasing appearance and is well groomed. Students feel proud of their school and contribute to its cleanliness.

Providing safe and well-maintained schools is a top priority for the school district. To ensure that all classrooms and facilities are maintained in a manner that supports instruction, a scheduled maintenance program is administered by the district.

Teachers have access to a centralized workroom, reading resource room, staff-development room, a multi-purpose media room, and a room for adaptive physical education.

Improvements are underway with funding from Proposition S, the school improvement bond supported overwhelmingly by voters.
