Historical Significance: The Scottsdale Grammar School #2 was built in 1928 to accommodate the city's growing student population. A Spanish Colonial Revival style building, the school served 594 students during its first academic year under the administration of Principal Garland White. Renamed Loloma Elementary School in the early 1950s, the school closed in 1981.
Phoenix architectural firm Lescher and Mahoney designed the original building as well as additions in 1933 and 1936. Scottsdale architect Douglas Sydnor designed a remodel of the building in 1993 for the Scottsdale Artists' School.
