Leon Sheffield Elementary School - School Building

School Building

The current structure that houses the school was originally built as the high school for African Americans during the segregation era. After the school system was integrated, students were divided between Austin and Decatur high schools and the building was turned into an elementary school. In 2005, the school was part of an extensive, city-wide, effort to renovate buildings that were in poor shape. Gordon-Bibb Magnet Elementary School building, built in 1913, was torn down. Magnet students were then divided into Benjamin Davis Elementary and Leon Sheffield by grade and a new elementary school building, Banks-Caddell Elementary School, was built as neighborhood elementary school on the property.

    The chemistry of dissatisfaction is as the chemistry of some marvelously potent tar. In it are the building stones of explosives, stimulants, poisons, opiates, perfumes and stenches.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    The most powerful lessons about ethics and morality do not come from school discussions or classes in character building. They come from family life where people treat one another with respect, consideration, and love.
