Students at J. Frank White Academy are the recipients of a new playground located at the Lower School on the Lincoln Memorial Campus. The Lower School, grades K-3, is housed at Kresge Hall and the Pre-K Program is in Avery Hall.

The kids and staff are excited to get the playground open as they believe it is a welcome addition to the school and that active outdoor play is an important component to the academic experience.
