Balmforth Avenue School, built 1881, demolished 1958.
Morris Street School, built 19th century, old section demolished 1981, though the school itself survives.
The Locust Avenue building served as a public elementary school until 1976. Its eight classrooms feature plentiful natural light, which entered through large windows. The ventilation system also keeps rooms airy and regulates the temperature. Each classroom has room for approximately 50-60 students. The basement served as a recreational space when inclement weather prevented going outside. It also let in natural light thanks to ground-level windows.
Architect Warren Briggs designed this bright, functional school building in accordance with up-to-date school architecture practices. In 1899, he published Modern American School Buildings, a work that included Locust Avenue School.
