San Francisco Landmark #285
Theodore Roosevelt Middle School
460 Arguello Boulevard
Built 1929-1930

The Theodore Roosevelt Middle School was built with bond funds used to build fifty public schools in San Francisco between 1920 and 1930, the Golden Age of school construction in San Francisco.

Designed by architect Timothy Pflueger in an idiosyncratic Dutch-German Expressionist style, it is the only example in San Francisco - and possibly the United States - of this avant‐garde style.

The school contains three well‐preserved New Deal murals, a pair in the main lobby by Horatio Nelson Poole and one above in the auditorium by George Wilson Walker.
