My hometown! I went to elementary school there and my dad graduated in the late 30's from high school there.

My parents and I both went to school there. The larger building no longer exists was torn down a couple yrs ago to build new school.

I just drove through Bartlett the other day and it was still there.are you referring to the original high school building that was to the left?

One of my favorite places. I taught there for many years until it was closed! The footprint is similar to what it was like when the school closed minus the water tanks!

Mr. Gage, I just mentioned what a great teacher you were to my mother over the weekend. I hope you are doing well. Bartlett Elementary was a wonderful close knit school with many excellent teachers!

The school is still very much there. It's no longer a school. But everything is still there. I live in Bartlett and attended that school as well

I lived at Bartlett for from 1976- 1981 . I loved this school and the kids. One of my favorite places to work.

Originally Wesley Township School and most recently Bartlett Elementary school. Last year as a school was 2008.

I went to school here and have SO many amazing memories of the community, staff, and my classmates. It's extremely sad that it is privately owned now and not used as a community center.

My siblings and I all went to school here. My older brother, Dennis, started in 1947, I in 1949 and brother Larry in 1951. My sister started there ten years after me and was the only one to go to school in the "new" addition.

Donna Hedges (Howell) went to school there 7 th and 8th grade .Hopefully doesnt tear down.

I went to school there in 7 and 8 grade I also cooked there for several years and the school is stell there . The tanks were not there when I was at the school. My brother went to school there and my aunts lela Howell , Modie Howell went to school . I injoyed the people who lived in community we were like one big family. Those were the good old days.
