Modernist architecture in a simple Russian school

Initially, the factory school was only for boys who were considered to become future workers at the plant, but in 1914 the education system changed: School № 10 now had eight grades and began to accept girls.

School № 10 in Noginsk is one of the oldest educational institutions in the town.
In the outskirts of Noginsk (town situated in 68 km from Moscow), on 8 March Street, stands the splendid building of School № 10, which this year marks its 105th anniversary.
In 1908, not far from the Novotkatsky plant, the beautiful school building was constructed to give education to the children of textile workers.
School № 10 in Noginsk is one of the oldest educational institutions in the town.
The school was built and designed by architects A.M. Markov and Karasev.
Before the war, the school was a basis of methodical instruction, and only the best teachers worked there.
1935 was a momentous year for the town: School № 10 in Noginsk saw the graduation of its first ninth-graders.
Today, School № 10 is equipped with innovative technologies and, as before, employs highly qualified pedagogues.
The school has very many traditions, including annual meetings with war veterans, concerts for parents, health and self-management days, regular excursions, and extracurricular activities.
Since 1973, the school has housed a museum which charts the history of the institution since its foundation. A great deal of attention is paid to the patriotic and civil upbringing of the school children.
Walking past the school nowadays, you would not probably think that it is part of Russia's architectural heritage. Everyone should know about it and take pride in the Russian master craftsmen who built this magnificent edifice.
