John Burroughs Elementary School

In January 2022, a group of JBES students began their journey as they unearthed the rich history of their school and the surrounding community. With new members in their club, they continued their work during the 2022-2023 school year.

Current JBES teacher and alum, Mr. Boyd, led the students on their research quest as they interviewed long-time area residents, explored their neighborhood, researched historical photographs and documents, and much more!

The JBES community now has a museum-quality exhibit installed in their lobby that shares their “school story” with the broader community. The exhibit not only celebrates the school’s centennial anniversary, but it also honors the generations of JBES families that have attended the school over time.
