The Former Schools category is for Waymarking former school buildings.
Expanded Description:

Waymarks in this category include abandoned school buildings, and those that have been repurposed as public structures of another type, as businesses, homes, or former school buildings moved to historic parks.

Instructions for Posting a Former Schools Waymark:

To create a Former Schools waymark, record the coordinates for the main entrance of the building, or for as close to the main entrance as possible.

The waymark name should include the original name of the school, the city, state/province abbreviation, and country, in that order:
Example: Rocky Hill School - Rocky Hill, NJ, USA

Include at least one high-quality photograph you have taken, and make this the default image for the waymark. This photograph should show as much of the building as is practical. Additional photographs are certainly welcome!

In your description, please include as much information as possible about the history of the school building, architect, construction materials, years of operation/service, grade levels, approximate annual enrollment, and other facts that may be of interest to waymarkers. Some of this information will be difficult to determine, and it is not expected that every waymark will have this level of detail, but do everything possible to make your waymark interesting to others.

Please also describe the current use or purpose of the former school building. If the building is not on public property, please seek permission before listing.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To post a log, you may include a photo of yourself at the former school, or a photo of the school, but it is NOT necessary. Please indicate the number of people who visited the waymark with you.
