Grassy berms, low walls, and pleasant landscaping set the scene for this irregularly massed, multilevel modernistic structure with flat roofs and a curved brick wall between the entrances, on the site of the demolished Centennial High School (1876). Kenneth Williams, who has adorned many Pueblo walls and buildings with three-dimensional murals, used the beige brick of the building to create a bas-relief in the curving brick entry wall.
