Regarding Apollo School. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
the building's two-room schoolhouse plan is illustrative of a local school building constructed to serve a small town population with a "modern" school design. The building is one of the early elementary schools in Martin County and the only surviving two-room schoolhouse in the county. It is further significant for its long service as the Hobe Sound Elementary School. In the area of Architecture the building is a good example of 1920s Mission style architecture applied to a small school building. Its design is ascribed to noted Florida architect Maurice Fatio.
