Prides Corner School to Join Other Schools on Real Estate Market

When Westbrook's Prides Corner Elementary School
closes in June, it will join a growing list of former school buildings in
Greater Portland in search of a new purpose. Four schools in Portland, Gorham
and Falmouth were closed last year, reflecting a statewide trend of declining
enrollments and the construction of new, larger schools that consolidate
classrooms.Officials have found new uses for some of the old buildings, but
other schools remain vacant and their future is uncertain.
