Drachman Montessori Magnet School

If you walk through the arch and past the benches in our previous post, you'll be at the entrance courtyard at the school. (The address is 1085 South 10th Avenue, but the school isn't directly on the street). There are murals all around the courtyard, but please restrain yourself :) long enough to sign in at the office first.

To the right of that large mural is a smaller one near the library:

And, on the south wall of the courtyard, across from the office:

I took the photos on January 18th.
