Capitola Elementary was closed in the spring of 2004 due to the minimal enrollment and overcrowding of the neighboring middle school. However, the garden lab still remains and is maintained by the students of NBMS (New Brighton Middle School).
The students of Capitola Elementary created a compass rose of the four cardinal directions nearby the garden lab.
Beyond the school busses used to be the recess playground for K-5th grade. Now is a parking lot for the staff of the middle school.
