Clever title. It's real unfortunate that places like these are left to fall apart like this. Instead of building schools they should renovate this place or turn it into a community center. It just seems like a colossal waste. Stunning picture, though.
The school moved all of it's business to a new building in 1998. Not sure why, but probably because of an increasing amount of students or classroom quality. Either way though, you're right. It is sad!
