Karen Ekman-Baur remembers:
"I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, and From 1949 to 1951, a contingent of students who lived in the south part of Ft. Lauderdale and had previously attended South Side School were sent to Naval Air Station Elementary School. I'm not sure whether it was a full school of grades 1 through 6, but I was there in grades 4 and 5 (1949-1951). The school was housed in a 2-story wooden building. At the end of our 5th-grade year, Croissant Park Elementary School had been built , and we were all transferred there. Later, I and students from all over Ft. Lauderdale attended Naval Air Station Junior High School from grades 7-9 (1952 through 1955), afterwhich we moved on to Fort Lauderdale High School in 1955."
