William Henley Deitrick received the American Institute of Architects outstanding school prize for the 1930 design of the Northern Italian Romanesque school. The ninety-five-foot-high tower marks the central entrance to the school, faced with ashlar stone and accented by cast-stone ornament, orange brick, red-orange tile, and green copper to create a rich exterior appearance. The school is named for Broughton, a Baptist church leader, printer, and community leader. The school is a Raleigh Historic Landmark.
