"This school is situated on a 22-acre lot, rolling in character, and overlooks Manhasset Bay. The grounds are arranged for football and baseball fields, archery, junior playgrounds, tennis courts, and landscaped areas.
The building is not symmetrical in plan. It contains seven classrooms of the types used in the best modern schools and also a large greenhouse where flowers are grown and transplanted into the school gardens by the pupils.
It is of fire-resistant construction with special interior finish. The exterior walls are brick, trimmed with stone.
Its over-all dimensions are 312 by 144 feet. It was completed in December 1936 at a construction cost of $467,945 and a project cost of $516,736."
