This school in Clayton, New Mexico, built in Pueblo Revival architectural style, is a 1930's WPA product. Thirty-six easel paintings by well-known NM artists are on view along with wrought iron lamps, furniture, drapes, dishes and weavings, all created in the New Deal-funded vocational classes in the 1930's.

The WPA Project Museum (the only one in the state) is located in the junior high school building in the center of the campus.
