Built in 1955, the school's appearance is pleasing and 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.

To further support learning, a variety of learning areas, Science Labs, a Computer Lab, an Art Studio, a Library  and resource rooms are available.

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. Additional work to be done is listed on the Propositions S Bond Projects page.

The school's location is convenient to Fairmont Avenue and Federal Blvd and Hyw. I-94 and I-805 freeways.
