McLean Junior High School – Fort Worth TX

Description

This building was originally known as W. P. McLean Junior High when it opened in 1936. It was designed by Fort Worth architect Wiley G. Clarkson and built by James T. Taylor with financing through the Public Works Administration (PWA). The one- and two-story Mediterranean Revival design included Art Deco motifs. Fort Worth’s tremendous growth in the post-World War II years resulted in the school beginning transformed to R. L. Paschal Senior High School  in 1955. The 1930s school has been greatly obscured by successive additions to the high school.
