Sunset Elementry REVISITED

City/Town: Oklahoma City
Location Class: School
Year Built: 1960
Year Abandoned: 1984
Status: Demolished
Photojournalist: Cody CooperJustin Tyler MooreMichael Schwarz

Sunset elementary school was built in early 1960 and opened to enrollment in the summer of 1960. It was constructed to serve the overcrowded Ridgeview elementary in the east side of the Village. It is 19,000 square feet and has about 9 acres surrounding it. The OKCPS declared it surpuls in 1984 because of low enrollment. The City of the Village was given the opprotunity to purchase the building that year but did not. It is in fair shape and seems to be under some kind of construction.  Everything was painted white, but you still can see everything that was there before.

I went from kindergarten thur 5th grade. I remember my teachers there. Ingram, Davis, MacFeaters, Thumpras, Moon and Pritchett. Not sure about the spelling! Sixth grade they started Middle School and sent us to Hoover. My buddy’s were Lamar Lester, Jeff Burza, John Durie and the girl next door Diane Patterson.

This school was located on Sunset Boulevard and Northland Avenue (I think), about half a mile west of May Avenue and a block north of Lakeside Drive. The land was purchased by a developer, and now there are lots of beautiful new homes where the school used to be. They've even cut in a few new streets. It's amazing how much property there is when you look at how many houses have been built in the last year or two. The development is still not quite finished.

Why was everything painted white? Vandals?

No. LOL. The building was filled with asbestos and when they took it out they layered the place with a cleansing layer of white paint to protect it from coming back… Too bad they tore it down…
