Well, technically, it isn't a "landmark" at all --- only to Twilight fans. But there shouldn't be any need or use for the school building in both parts of Breaking Dawn, and if they need to put in a new school, let them. The Twilight Saga doesn't own Forks or Seattle or anything like that, so we really don't technically have a right to say it shouldn't be torn down, just because our favorite movie was filmed there.

 

Not to be mean here, but who honestly really cared about the school in general? Who cared about Forks in general before Twilight? No one, really, unless they lived there. We haven't lost anything. Twilight's coming to a close and it's time to be moving on. It's not like when people are becoming old or begining a family they'll want to go back to see the school where their favorite movie when they were a teenager was filmed. It's kind of silly. To be so upset over it being torn down.

 

What true meaning did it have to us? Besides Twilight scenes being filmed there? It's just an empty building! Bella, Edward, Cullens, ect. aren't in there being torn down with it. We still have the books and films, too.

Uhhhh.... I was in Forks last July and they were demolishing the school, so that must be an old post. They had the sign up in the back corner of the lot so people could see it and take pictures.

As posted in the Comments of this online article (from The Seattle Times): "The outside of the school shown in the movies is actually Kalama High School in Kalama, WA [Washington]. It's about 35 miles north of Portland, OR [Oregon]. The interior of the school was filmed somewhere else."  So the demolition of this facade is not what is in the movies. Yes, it's significant because it is located in Forks, but it's not what is shown in the movies. They tried to raise enough money to save it, but they needed over $200,000 to do so, and only $2,000 was raised instead. So my question is to the City of Forks....where does that unused money go now??
