School as community center.

Renovating an old and unused high school in Minnesota was a critical piece in reviving the East Side of Saint Paul.

John A. Johnson Achievement Plus Elementary School in Saint Paul, opened in 2000, is a state-of-the-art community school in an area where 2,500 manufacturing jobs were lost recently. These layoffs led to increasing child poverty. The school is also next to a new YMCA, part of a complex that is a creative partnership between the city, the district, Ramsey County, the YMCA, the East Side Family Center and the Wilder Foundation.
