8th Street Elementary School



8th Street Elementary School is located in Ocala's historic district. It is a high-achieving school, with a diverse mix of students, operating from a beautiful and historic 3-story structure. The original school was built in 1914 but underwent a substantial renovation during the 2000-2001 school year and continues to offer children a wonderful place to grow and learn.

That is a very big school, I wonder how many students learn here.

What a fine looking building that is, Lowell!

What a beautiful old building. It's not one I'd expect to see in Florida. I'd expect to see a more modern, glass-covered structure similar to the one I graduated from in Illinois. This one is more like the Junior High building I went to. That was another grand historic building and is still hosting students today.

The architectural style reminds me of a couple of schools here, which would date to around that time.

It does look like a nice school building. I like schools looking like an efficient place. Not rambling all over the place----call me old fashioned

How wonderful that it is still there and being used! It reminds me of my old junior high school that sadly was torn down to make way for a new one that is not nearly as attractive (to me that is).

What a beautiful old building! I can imagine being in one of those classrooms and staring out one of those tall windows. (Staring out the window is a time honored class pastime.)
