guide to the Wolverine State, by the Writers Program:
one of the most recent units of the Hamtramck school system, was designed to offer facilites for an efficient application of Dr. Keyworth's educational principles. The structure is faced with brick in several shades of orange, combined with variegated limestone, and decorated with terra cotta ranging from light buff through orange to reddish-purple. From the E-shaped ground-plan, the wings rise two stories, and the central portion three. The school, designed by D. C. Wetzel & Company, was completed in 1931 at a cost of about $900,000.
