Amish Schoolhouse

This Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, hosts children from the Amish families in the surrounding community.  The outdoor toilets, fences that reveal the boundaries with the fields nearby, and the bell atop the school are indicative of an earlier era of education.  The teacher and children come on foot, sled, or sleigh, and are rarely stopped by snow or inclement conditions.  Most will finish their education around the 8th grade.
