  • On the north end and closest to the street is the brick end of the oldest section, perhaos six or eight classrooms, with an addition for a new entry on the south end and another small bit beside it
  • Estimated at construction in the 1960s, the original windows have been removed and the walls partly filled; all windows on the east side were covered by the newer gym wing
