בית הספר הוותיק
הבניין נבנה בשנת 1896 בסגנון שהיה מקובל במושבה, והוא נועד למגורי פקיד הברון, אברהם בריל. החדר בחזית הבניין היה אז מרפסת, כמו בבתי המושבה האחרים.
בשנת 1905 החל הבניין לשמש כבית ספר, ובו שתי כיתות לימוד וגן ילדים. במלחמת העולם הראשונה השתכנו בו קצין תורכי ופלוגתו, ומרתף הבניין שימש כבית כלא. במלחמת העצמאות הוקם בבניין בית חולים קדמי לנפגעי הקרבות באזור.
כאשר גדל מספר התלמידים, נבנה בניין גדול שיאכלס את כולם. המבנה הישן משמש רק כמשרד של בית הספר וחדר מורים.

The old school
The building was built in 1896 in a style that was customary in the colony and was intended for the residence of the Baron’s clerk, Abraham Brill. The room at the front of the building was then a balcony, as in the other colony houses.
In 1905, the building began to serve as a school, with two classrooms and a kindergarten. During World War I, a Turkish officer and his company were housed there, and the basement of the building served as a prison. During the War of Independence, a front hospital was built for victims of the fighting in the area.
As the number of students increased, a large building was built to accommodate everyone. The old building is only used as a school office and teacher’s room.
