Regarding East Side High School. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "This Collegiate Gothic Revival style school building has several parts, of which only the main block of a ground floor and three upper levels is considered to be historically significant. The original block of the structure is dominated by a central stone entrance tower.
"East Side High School represents a significant commitment by the City of Madison to its educational system. The high school is an excellent example of the Collegiate Gothic style of architecture and it one of architect Frank Riley’s finest works. Riley’s plans for the school were gradually implemented over a period of 15 years to accommodate a fast growing student population."
