Gerald Adams School

College Road winds round north Stock Island in a semi-circle from US Highway One back to the highway over the course of a meandering mile and a bit. The city annexed this portion of Stock Island to facilitate a gold course development by the indefatigable Pritam Singh, he of Truman Annex fame. In addition the city got a little extra room to build out.

One city addition was Gerald Adams Elementary school, one of the newer projects in the school district. It sits between the Community College and the former trash transfer station N every day the slow children signs come out to keep traffic tame on the meandering College Road.

Not everyone knows this side of Stock Island is actually in the city but it is which accounts for the sidewalks that reach almost all the way round the semi-circle and more are being built all the time.

Crawling along at 15 miles per hour, not a human in sight I had time to enjoy the bright tropical colors of Key West's most far flung school.

I interviewed for a position there and OMG! the smell was unbelievable. I realize that is all kinds of incorrect, but it really smelled bad outside the school from Mt. Trashmore. Can't imagine learning in that environment. Too many aural distractions.

When you look at College Road there is a bizarre collection of busnesses and buildings on the arc of that road...
