The Wattsburg High School was built in 1956 with a student capacity of 587 and total area of 65,663 square feet. Total contracted construction costs were $901,905. Being one of 3 schools with the "finger plan", it is designed to enhance the rural site conditions and to adapt state standards to local needs, employ a non-combustible construction system of advanced type. Simple materials are fully exploited, and the structural elements are uncovered where practicable. Specific developments include steel in continuity, ground faced concrete masonry, simple assemblies, and a reduction of trade operations. These design procedures have produced relatively low bilding costs in every case.
