High School

York Memorial Collegiate is a high school in the northwest part of the city with a very high academic success rate among its students. This Collegiate Gothic structure was built in 1930 and as you can see it has been well maintained over the years.

A typical school building from that time period. My old public school "Secord" looked very much like this style. It has since been demolished and a new one built in it's place.
PS: Great minds think alike. We both have similar post today.

I went to a grade school that looked similar to this. The memories are not all good.

The building reminds me a lot of Washington University in St. Louis.

Quite impressive. The style is similar to a high school here that I've never photographed.

Beautiful! Looks a lot like Selma's old high school that was torn down.

This looks identical to Danforth Tech on Greenwood.

A good solid building. Love that doorway.

A fine stately place! Excellent for learning.

I think it's kind of funny and ironic at the same tie that those slits towards the top of those turrets were originally designed for archers. :-)
