Because it is unique in North King County and is "a rare example" remaining of an intact
"semi-rural neo-classical school building" and was "an excellent example of early 20th Century school design , executed in a modest Classical Revival style."

It is to determine whether the Shoreline School District's "Certificate of Appropriateness" for significantly altering the building will be upheld.
It is nearly a century old, built in 1912. It was built because Judge Ronald, a Shoreline pioneer donated the property for the purpose of building a school. It served the children and families for education for almost all of those 99 years.
The exterior is landmarked AND including the 15 ft setback surrounding it and out to N 175th St.
It was preserved from 1975-2011 by the Shoreline Historical Museum, which was evicted by the Shoreline School District.
The front walkway leading out to N 175th St is also Landmarked.
