So, I am not a professional designer or modeler. I just design the models I need for my railroad and share them. Thanks for your interest .

I would like to see a model of another style school from same era it was a simpler rectangle building with 2 front entrances raised with porches and hand rails of concrete and 1 rear door with boiler room stairs under that doors porch. these also had a half exposed Basement with a kind of moat around building made of cut stone and basement windows had heavy wire screens. these buildings came in both 2 story above basement and 4 story. St Louis MO schools had/have lots of these in use. they also had a large smoke stack chimney about 8 feet square from Boiler room which was deeper than basement and also used an incinerator for trash in to the late 1960s when they were banned. the floors above basement had Brick walls but basement was cement with White cut stone on outside. the 'Moat' had a cement sidewalk with drain grates next to building as floor and a stone sloped outer wall up to ground level with stone curb and Kids used to play in it. also entrance ways had 18" wide shoe scrapers set into the cement Porch and the double doors had an cement peaked head stone with name of School engraved in it. I am still trying to find photos to model from as My old Grade school was demolished in 1981 and was the last of the 2 story style. it also had a new wing added on one end making it "L" shaped with a combo Gym/Auditorium. Cafeteria was in Basement and playground in rear with staff parking on side fenced. they were built nation wide from about 1890-1940
