Marker Text:

The Plano Institute opened on this site in 1882 before a public school system existed in Plano. In 1891, city officials bought the school and took over operations. Later schools built here included one in 1924 which became the core of the current structure. The federal government added the gymnasium as a Works Progress Administration project in 1938. After the school closed, the district used the building for administration and the gym became an auditorium. The former school exhibits an eclectic mix of styles, most notably Mission and Classical, with double stepped parapets over the entry pavilion and cartouches centered over the decorative entry. A cross motif is evident on both red brick structures.
