Inside Cardozo High (With A Celebrity Connection)

The post below is a listing for a house with great views of the Cardozo High football field which is a perfect excuse to look into the state of Cardozo High itself. The historically protected building that was built in 1916 and designed by William B. Ittner is undergoing a major renovation project so students don't have to navigate around crumbling infrastructure. Last month the DC Preservation League took a tour of the building to document the original features before it becomes completely transformed. The school also appears in the video for Wale's Chillin along with a few other spots in the District (though Wale is an alum of Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Md). The song features Lady Gaga who struts her stuff in other locations. Check it all out after the jump.
