Former Sherman Elementary School - Oakland CA
Melrose Leadership Academy, a public school in the Oakland Unified School District, occupies the former Sherman Elementary School building – named for Margaret Sherman, a teacher and principal in the Oakland school system.
Melrose Academy is a K-8 dual language immersion school and has two locations. The former Sherman school is the K-2d grade half of the academy. Melrose Academy has used the old Sherman school since 2007.
Sherman Elementary was built in the 1930s with the assistance of the Public Works Administration (PWA). The exact construction date is unknown to us.
