Considered a model school from a pedagogical and sanitary point of view, the simple volumes and unpretentious decoration stand out for their technical expression and functionality. Ventura Terra brought the French model of Lycée from his education in Paris, materialised in the regular symmetrical plan as a two-floor trident, composed by the main façade, two lateral bodies, and a central one parallel to them, confining two vast open spaces intended for recess. In 1927, the Physics and Chemistry offices were built to move the laboratories away from the main facilities. Over the decades it has been expanded, with the aggregation of the neighbouring secondary artistic school, António Arroio, and the construction of an auditorium, cafeteria and sports pavilion. In 2019, major renovation works were started.
