Appraisal

Architectural design is immediately apparent in this nineteenth-century school building. The survival of many original features and materials, such as the diamond paned windows, and well executed masonry, make this building an attractive addition to the streetscape. The setting of building is enhanced by the cast-iron railings and gates.
