DC’s Spingarn High School Empty and Worse

Fires, Poor Maintenance Push the Once Proud NE School to the Edge

Pictured in this slideshow is the exterior of Spingarn High School at 2500 Benning Rd.in NE DC. The school closed in June 2013 following concerns with low test scores and low enrollment. The building is not being professionally maintained and has fallen into disrepair. A series of fires has damaged the structure, and litter is all over the grounds.
