PLANS OF PRIMARY AND GRAMMAR SCHOOL BUILDINGS IN BALTIMORE, MD.
The following plans were prepared by Mr. J. J. Husband, of the firm of Avery & Husband, Architects. Baltimore, with the assistance of the Superintendent of Public Schools, Rev. J. N. M'Jilton, D. D., under instructions from the Building Committee of the School Board in 1867.
PLAN FOR A GRAMMAR-SCHOOL. The plan of the Grammar School shows seven school-rooms on each floor, with hat and bonnet rooms, stairways, &c. The Principal's room in each story is 36 x 52 feet, containing an area of 1,872 square feet, and capable of seating two hundred and fifty pupils, without interference with the aisles which lead from the apartment to the rooms of the assistant teachers. The class-rooms of assistant teachers are six in number. They are varied in their dimensions. In each of these rooms seventy or more pupils may be seated. Each floor will afford accommodations for six hundred and seventy to seven hundred pupils. The rooms are so arranged that the Principal at his desk, or in any part of his room, can have a view through the sash partitions of all the rooms, and of all the pupils in them. The pupils may be so seated as to face the side wall at which the Principal's desk is placed, and by a slight turn of the head their faces may be directed towards the desk whenever it may be necessary.

FIRST FLOOR-GRAMMAR SCHOOL
throwing up the sash of the partitions, the whole floor may be used as a single room, when addresses are to be delivered to the school, or general orders given.
There are two stairways on the plans—one near the front, the other near the rear wall, by which, whenever it becomes necessary, the pupils may be removed from the building in a few minutes.
The doors of all the rooms, and those leading from the building, open outwardly.
