The schoolhouses themselves are pretty sturdy, being an array of browns in color, but the borders are bright and cheery sort of like you'd think of school as studious or quiet and then recess as a "shout!"
These schoolhouses remind me of the one room schoolhouse I attended as schoolgirl in Northern Wisconsin just a few years ago !!!!!! We had all 8 grades in one room for a total of 14 kids in the whole school. I loved school and always looked forward to school starting in the fall. For that meant new pencils, paper and books. There was always so much to learn. Just like now--so much to learn--we shouldn't let a day go by without learning something new--no matter what it is!
