The elementary school was cited as one of Deitrick’s first projects in North Carolina by Elizabeth C. Waugh in “Firm in an Ivory Tower,” North Carolina Architect (January-February, 1971). As noted in Kelly A. Lally, The Historic Architecture of Wake County, North Carolina (1994), the school was known as the Green Hope School after the two communities it served. It is said to have been the first accredited rural high school in Wake County. The main school burned in 1963, though some secondary buildings survived.
