At the time when this site is going online in July of 2016, the conventional view appears to be that the school is about to be demolished and turned into a parking lot. This brings to mind the lyrics of Joni Mitchell's song "Big Yellow Taxi" - "Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot". While even those who hold the school in high regard would be stretching it to suggest it was "paradise, it is true that only when its future is uncertain are people beginning to appreciate it and apparently people do believe it is going to be turned into a parking lot. HOWEVER, the fact is that as A B Ellis moves out, the Separate School system is about to move in. So we have made the decision to respect that fact and only publish a limited number of images of the inside of the building at this time. If in the future the building is in danger of demolition, we do have a photographic record of it we could share at that time. Once again Jason Morrow has to be thanked for his assistance in this area. So without explanation lets take a brief walk through the building to jog our memories.
A peek into a few classrooms.
