Two Buildings ~ One School Community
Thomas K. Finletter Academics Plus School is a historic school located in the Olney neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is part of the School District of Philadelphia. The building was designed by Irwin T. Catharine and built during the years 1929–1930. It is a three-story, eight-bay yellow brick building on a raised basement in the Art Deco-style. It features a colorful arched entryway with terra cotta trim and terra cotta panels. It was named for the grandfather of an American lawyer, politician, and statesman Thomas K. Finletter (1893-1980).
The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. In 1997, an additional building was added to the grounds and named the Thomas K. Finletter Little School House. This building houses students from Kindergarten to 2nd grade.
