thumbnail for Howard Middle School #Thornton ParkBuilt in 1926, this school in #Thornton Park was originally known as Orlando High School and was the area's first high school, as well the first desegregated school in this community. Famous OHSl alumni include actor Buddy Ebsen, U.S. Astronaut John Young, and Nobel Prize winner/biochemist/geneticist Marshall Warren Nirenberg. As population grew, other high schools were necessary, and this school became a junior high (7th-9th grade) in 1952 and middle school (6th-8th grade) in 1987.

WOW is all I can say about their food! This is a MUST try (and try again and again) location (just look at the crowd hanging out on the patio).
