The school in the 100 block of South Park was built in 1917. The two-story brick building had classrooms for elementary and high school children. There was a library room, an auditorium, cooking, sewing and manual arts rooms, a gymnasium with showers and, best of all — indoor toilets.

This school later became known as Park School. What remains on this site is the old manual arts or vocational agriculture sciences building, currently used as a shop and warehouse. U.S.D. 262 administrative offices also were built on this site in later years.

After World War II and in 1946, Prairie Queen and other rural schools were closed, and children were bused to Park School. At least three of the one-room school buildings were moved onto land around Park School and were used for various classes due to the rapid growth of the school system.

The flagpole from Park School is in the back yard of what used to be Ralph and June Spencer's home on North Park, across from the Methodist Church. Ralph was on the school board when the school was razed, and he obtained the pole.
