The Speyer School. Part II. Curriculum and Its Relations to Teachers College: The Speyer School Building


by Jesse D. Burks & Edgar A. Josselyn 1903

The new building now about completed for the use of the Speyer School occupies a plot of ground at number 94 Lawrence street, just west of Amsterdam avenue. It is the most conspicuous and attractive edifice of the neighborhood in which it stands, rising far above all surrounding buildings in commanding height, thus symbolizing in a fitting way the influence that the school hopes to attain in the community life of which it is a part. The structure with the equipment and ground represents an outlay of $130,00 on the part of the donors, Mr. and Mrs. James Speyer. The building is constructed of the most durable and fireproof material throughout, and the equipment is the best that could be found in the open markets. The special requirements of a school building with respect to heat, light, and ventilation have been carefully considered and, it is believed, have in large measure been met. The influence of the building itself, without regard to the activities of the school, should be large and beneficent as furnishing a practical illustration of what can be done, under the conditions of crowded city life, to provide some of the first essentials of wholesome living.
