The other two housed a library and teachers' room. The second floor was a large assembly room with a stage. A wing containing classrooms and facilities was added during the 1890s. The school was closed in 1924 when the modern Lakewood High School was opened at the northeast corner of East Summit Street and Lakeview Avennue. Lakewood School.
