Excerpt from High School Buildings

The popularity of "High School Buildings, Volume I," which is now practically out of print, has encouraged the compiler to present this second collection of illustrations and sketch plans of American secondary schoolhouses.

Even in so short a period as six years, since the earlier book appeared, there have been large changes in American secondary education and these have been reflected accurately in the design and construction of buildings. The high school has entirely outgrown its academic limitations and traditions and has broadened its influence and its curriculum. Thus, the industrial arts and household arts are no longer "basement subjects;" the natural sciences are now taught in a way to require diversified laboratories; the physical care of students has been extended to necessitate very complete gymnasia and lunch rooms; and the movement for the "wider use" of the school plant by adults has become a fixed fact which school authorities have recognized thru better auditorium and night school facilities. The high school building of the present day is far more inclusive and complicated in the number and type of activities which it serves, and the structures illustrated in the following pages bear out this statement.

A departure has been made from the earlier book in the shape of text matter. This consists of articles which appeared originally in the School Board Journal and which aroused considerable attention as statements of fundamental principles in the field of high school architecture.

The hearty thanks of the compiler and publishers are hereby expressed to each of the architects and engineers represented in the book.
