In 1959, the Board of Education, under Superintendent John Theobald, awarded the contract for the construction of this building to Wilka Wilaka Construction Company. The area had been plagued with extreme overcrowding and the community had long needed a new elementary school. The school was originally built to accommodate 1,194 pupils from kindergarten to 6th grade and cost $2,232,154.[1]

The buidling was designed by Michael L. Radoslovich, an architect educated at MIT who served as superintendent of school buildings in Brooklyn from 1952-1969. During this time, he reorganized the in-house architectural team and worked closely with a number of outside consultants to reinvent the designs of public schools. The designs that his office produced followed the trend started after World War II of experimentation with the design principles of European Modernism, emulating Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius.[2]
