David Farragut School

The David G. Farragut School, also known as The Farragut School, was a public elementary school located at 10 Fenwood Road, in the Mission Hill district of Boston, Massachusetts, just off of Huntington Avenue.[1] The school was located near the Brigham Circle trolley-train stop on the "E" branch of the MBTA's Green Line and Brigham and Women's Hospital.[2]

The Farragut School opened in early 1904[3] and closed in 2011 amidst a restructuring of the Boston Public Schools.[4] At the time of its closure, the school served students from Kindergarten through Grade 5[5] and had around 15 teachers overseeing 230 students.[6] The school served an approximate population of more than 25,000 people.[7]
