Our community center is located at Grace Jordan Elementary School near the intersection of Overland and Curtis in Boise.
The school and community center were built on the grounds of McKinley Elementary School. Grace Jordan serves students from the former McKinley, Jackson and Franklin Elementary Schools.
The 4,000-square-foot community center, which was opened in August 2008, features multipurpose rooms for free after-school drop-in use, an art center with classes for children and adults, and a supervised teen activity center with computers, games, and a lounge area.
The center features an art & dance studio for fee-based instruction for children and adults.
