MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - Students and parents are rallying to save their school.
Westhaven Elementary School, formerly in Memphis City Schools before the merge, was put on a list of schools to be considered to close.
Saturday, the community rallied to save its school.
Parents do not believe there is a reason to close the school.
"This school is a level 5 school. That's the highest you can get in the state of Tennessee. It has the highest enrollment of any school in this area right now we have 517 students in this school," explained the President of the Parent Teacher Organization, Bridget Bradley.
Bradley is a passionate advocate for the school to remain open.
"We are really fighting to save this school," exclaimed Bradley.
He and other parents believe one reason officials are trying to close the school is because the structure is older.
