I was raised in Arizona in the city of Phoenix. My Father used to work in a very small town call Cornville, Arizona, the town was about a two-hour drive from Phoenix.

It looked like the road that you see in a scary movie went you’re driving up to the house where all the bad stuff happened.

As we pulled up I noticed it was way different from elementary school in Phoenix the school had no fences, and it seemed like anyone could walk in at any time. The parking lot was very small; it looked like it only fit about 30 cars. In front of the school, there was set of swings, a sandbox and a couple of classrooms; it looked more like a public park than a school behind that was the school office with a sing on top that said Oak Creek School. We walked in to the office. It was very small we got greeted by the school administrator. She was very friendly and seemed like she was expecting us. She offered to show us around the school. We walked out and walk to the left side of the office she showed us the football field; then, she showed us where the classrooms where she mainly focused on showing us the 4th and 6th grade classrooms. The 6th grade classroom I was show had lots of windows and a very beautiful view of trees it looked like a forest. I noticed that there were only 2 classrooms per grade the school was small. Towards the back were K to 3rd grade was also the multipurpose room. The multipurpose room was use as a gym and as a cafeteria as well; there was a stage in the very front and basketball hoops; there was a set of doors that would go into the kitchen and the cashier to pay for your lunch. Behind the school there was a river that
