Andrew Jackson Elementary School, ca. 1900

The building pictured above is no longer standing, there's a much larger school in its place.  I don't know when
this building was demolished or when Andrew Jackson school closed (according to a directory I have, it was still
open in 1958).  The site is now home to the International School of Louisiana, created in 1999.  ISL is the first
multi-language immersion school chartered by the state of Louisiana.  In 2007, ISL was named National Charter
School of the Year by the Center for Education Reform, the only Louisiana charter school to receive this honor.
The photo above and two below were taken in the early 1900's; notice that boys & girls were not in the same rooms.
In this photo, ca. 1920, boys & girls now share a classroom, but they're still divided into 2 sections of the room.
