The classroom building is a one-story native stone building with a flat roof. It once had casement windows, eight panes high, with units of five in the front and three on the sides. (See photos on website below for pictures from the mid-1980's.) Today, those windows have been replaced by larger panes, three high.

Behind the classroom building is a stone gymnasium with a barrel roof. The cornerstone is located on the southwest corner. Website below has great pictures of this gym. http://oli_shpo.okstate.edu/resultquery.aspx?id=67294&pbc=P
