Update: See the stylistically similar Fremont School from October of 2019.
Converted into apartments, the Mount Pleasant School stands out as a building of high style among the low rise housing of the Dutchtown neighborhood.
Influenced by Renaissance art, the front door and the flanking windows show the influence of Michelangelo. I love architecture like this, so innocent and eclectic in its realization.

Pretty neat huh? Marge sent me a picture of her 6th grade graduation but I don’t recognize the school. Maybe a side that I never saw.

Went to school there from 1964–1967. Roger chasteney was my 7 and 8 th gr. Teacher.
Thanks for sharing, Robert! So it was a junior high school?
Went there and had Mr. Chasteney in 68 and 69. He was one of my favorite teachers.
