The school contains two 6′ x 24′ murals “Civilization Through the Arts and Crafts as Taught to the Neophyte Indians” and “Mission San Francisco de Asis.” They were painted by Edith Hamlin in 1936-37 with funding from the WPA Federal Art Project. Betty Willey and Jay Risling assisted. Hamlin retouched the murals herself in 1973. Both murals were originally located in the school library.
