Who is ready for an exciting school that the community built? The school is located in Berkeley Springs; West Virginia is located near the Dc area. Its population is 35,000 people. It took them a few months to build a new school but it worked out amazing. When the school was built they had to paint it so all of the walls were white and the outside they used red bricks. When they got done with the school they had someone come into the school to make sure it was safe for the kids to come into. A theater,auditorium,an aquarium,a zoo,playgrounds,a basketball court,a baseball field,a football stadium,classrooms,a gym,a tennis court,a cafeteria,an art class,and a pool etceteria.
