How unusual, there is a Hillcrest Elementary School just one block from our house, but no blue horses. Interesting.

Looks like a fine place, Lowell!

Kay said...

I'll be that blue horse is much loved.

Jack said...

I wonder if that blue horse confuses the students. Or comforts them. Or entertains them. Or . . .

A nice looking school and of course the horse is special too. MB

Beautiful building, looks very clean and new. The horse adds a nice touch of color.

I'm sure they love the horse!

Looks like the horse is rather special too.

Children with special needs tend to be part of the regular school system here in Ontario, something I have mixed feelings about. But I do understand that many special needs parents want their children to live comfortably with children their own age.

Love the sculpture!
In Maine, all new schools built must use 1% of the moneys spent on construction costs towards art. This would fit. Quite cool!

Judy said...

Important and nice looking school and they even have a horse. Perfect!

Sharon Anck said...

I bet they do good work in there.

VP said...

A very nice building, and I remember that kind of horse sculpture...

Halcyon said...

Looks very welcoming, especially with the painted horse!

Hilda said...

I like that one of the painted horses is there. We need more schools like this.

Lois said...

I love that they have the painted horse grazing in front!

I like the ambiance for the school here.

Re your query on my post - Must have been the heat and the dried leaves/branches as the fire was in the upper branches.
