Title by cataloger. The school was demolished in 1956 after the completion of a new school to the south of this building at the corner of Grandville and Shamrock. A third school, named Cesar E. Chavez Elementary, built in 2008 and 2009 at the corner of Grandville Ave. and Hall St. stands almost on the footprint of the 1892 school.
