Save Old Town School was founded the very next day by a group of students who are passionate about the school and who were shocked into action. The announcement said that the building must be sold to seed an endowment fund, but we believe this may not be the best way to achieve that goal. In less than two weeks, more than 6,000 people signed our petition!
