Hermitage Elementary celebrates 50 years in the neighborhood
50?! You don't look a day over 21! Hermitage Elementary is celebrating 50 years of service to the community and students. What better way to mark the occasion than by officially unveiling brand new renovations and improvements to the campus?
Here's a bit of history:
Hermitage Elementary opened in 1962 with 10 faculty members and 271 students in grades first through sixth. It was originally named Hermitage Hills Elementary for the neighborhood surrounding the school and was built on land that once served as the hunting grounds of President Andrew Jackson. Now the elementary school has 300 students enrolled in grades Pre –K through fourth and a staff of 40. The recent renovations and additions are the third in the school’s history.
