Boynton Beach's old high school is a beautiful building. It was built in 1927, by William Manley King, a south Florida architect of some repute, and if you look closely, you might notice that it has Art Deco lines blended into its Mediterranean revival form.

"I haven't seen any other building in South Florida that tried to blend both styles of architecture," says Rick Gonzalez, president of REG Architects, a firm based in West Palm Beach.

At the beginning of August, the city commissioners voted to knock it down.
