K is for Keystone

Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School! Why wasn't my middle school this fancy?

The keystone is the stone at the apex of an arch. It’s not *reeeeally* prominent here, but you can see it if you kinda squint at the Tudor arch (Gothic arch? it’s apparently Gothic architecture) at the bottom.

(Pssst… click here for a Google street view of the building!)

According to the school’s own website, “Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students attend Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School in a beautiful 1920s building that has been totally renovated with up-to-date classrooms, labs, and equipment.” The building served as Summit’s high school until 1962, and the space was periodically shared with the middle school during that time.

It gets excellent ratings on Greatschools.com.

The Summit Middle School was renamed to the Lawton C. Johnson Middle School in 2004 in honor of… Lawton C. Johnson, of course!
