Here we see a typical American elementary school. The school was located in Cincinnati, Ohio. The history of the school, however, is different from most schools. Roselawn is in fact the result of combining two schools. One was a special school for orthepedically challenged children.
We assumed the scholl was a 1st theough 6th shool, although we are not sure about grade 6. There was also a kindergarden. It appears that it was a school with classes up to 8th grade. I'm not sure when Roselawn School was founded. The school was founded to promote academic challenge with a strong base of community support and significant parental involvement. Roselawn was one of the first primary-level schools in Ohio offer a college preparatory alternative program. Roselawn offered this program through the 8th grade. The image here is from the Roselawn school in 1957.

An example of educational excellence had been established in Cincinnati .
Cincinnati voters approved a levy to finance the construction of a new school for orthopedically handicapped students. The new Federal Education for All Handicapped Act, PL 94-142 made such a school unecessary. The Act provided guarantees for all handicapped children to be educated in the least restrictive environment. Cincinatti education officials decided that the new school to replace the old Condon School should have non-disabled students. School officials looked at a variety of alternatives. They finally decided that Condon School and Roselawn School would be merge and a new school built in Roselawn. The actual merger took place in 1982 when the staff and students moved into the new building. The new school offeres a range of programs, including college preparatory, neighborhood, and disabled,
