While Ittner and Milligan schools in St. Louis are amazing, it’s always interesting to see how educational architecture developed after their tenure.
George Sanger took over as architect of St. Louis Public Schools in the early Twentieth Century.
Many of his first designs are conservative, but as the decades passed, he embraced more modern architecture, such as his 1939 Banneker School.
I find it fascinating that the library and assembly room have separate outside entrances–obviously the school served as a bit of a community center for the surrounding neighborhood.
The air conditioners have been stolen from out back, and the building sits vacant.
