Saratoga in Santa Clara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Saratoga's First School House
While the outside appearance of the school has changed little, in the early 1970's the entire structure was renovated to make it safer in the event of an earthquake. The auditorium gave way to the Mendelssohn Memorial Media Center.
The now silent school bell of the 1897 school stand in front as a reminder of our school's rich history.
Erected 1988 by 6th Grade Class.
