When I first saw Bontemps, it had lots of boarded up windows; in fact, it had way more boarded up windows than I expected. This school has two playgrounds and that made me think that there were lots of students at the school. Even though the school is boarded up, it still could have been a good school. I think the school being closed had a big effect on the students because of how empty the space looks now.
When I first saw Overton, I was surprised that the school was closed down. It looked like they put a lot of effort to build the school because of how nice it looks. Now that the school is closed, there is a lot of space that could be used more effectively. I saw part of the inside of the school, and I saw a bulletin board that still had art from the students on it. This made me kind of happy that no one removed the students’ art.
