The Edmonton Separate School Board Building is an example of the Early Modern style. It is an L-shaped building with structural expressionism that is quite pronounced with the use of pre-cast concrete columns and frames around the windows. The windows facing west and south have exterior, integrated pre-cast concrete sun shades. The spandrel panels below the strip windows are clad in a composite pre-cast concrete material that was commonly used during this period. The entrance is located in the recess where the two wings meet, adjacent to a landscaped courtyard. A tall decorative metal screen provides additional emphasis to the entrance.
