“If you are a teacher, this place is for you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The entrance fee is very reasonable and includes a graduation diploma. Very cute idea. I love history and I am an educator, so this place was a must see for me. You won't be here long as you only need thirty minutes max to tour the property.

“Surprisingly Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Was pleasantly surprised not to get the historic side of what it was like to go to school back in the day the garden's hidden in the back were very beautifully done.

“Nice look back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

I think the outhouse was what they remember most about this. They can't imagine things being like that was the common phrase between them.

“A St. Augustine landmark.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This St. Augustine landmark does not take much time at all to walk through and the gardens surrounding the schoolhouse adds to the enjoyment of a visit.

“Neat little place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very tiny little place and hard to imagine anyone today in a school like that. The little boy with the dunce cap and under the stairwell reminded me of "Willie Olson" from "Little House on the Prairie". Nice little garden surrounding the school too.
