This school does a thing where at the end of the semester they plan several two week intensives--the students can choose from three, and middle school students from all the grades attend together. It combines the best of block classes and longer classes.
Although I volunteered back in February, I just got the film developed from the photos I took there. I can't post them because they have students in them, but here's a shot of the interior.
It's in an old fun park in a strip mall, but it does actually feel like a school. I love, love the idea of reusing a space that could so easily be abandoned.
