Massive in scale with a clean, elegant elevational profile, this neoclassical school building exterior design exhibits many of the features characteristic of neoclassical architecture. The exterior facades are free of unnecessary embellishment and what you see is what you get. Each feature of the elevation has a clear purpose. The entrance is defined by a projecting canopy, supported by four tapering columns. The front road-facing elevations of the L-shaped school building have large window panels spaced at regular intervals. Each panel is identically designed in perfect, geometric proportions, giving the structure an ordered, uncluttered look. The rear landscape-facing walls have far fewer openings and the walls are left intentionally blank. A continuous, stepped molding follows the profile of the L-shaped building all the way around at roof level, forming the parapet of the long, flat roof. The elevational treatment exhibits a grandeur in scale with an attention to detail in the size and proportions of its openings in true neoclassical style.
