This building served as a school for the children of the Templar colony. The building and the gathering house were in the same yard. The classrooms were on the foundation floor and on the top floor lived the teachers and the rural pastor. The basement was used for storage.
In front of the building there is a balcony for decoration, which rests on decorated concrete beams. The windows have been preserved in their original ornate style. A few years ago, the building was renovated while preserving the appearance of its facade. However, the internal wooden stairs leading to the second floor have been replaced, as have the back porch railing and room ceilings. Remains of the stone fence typical of the Templar colony remained around the building.
At the beginning of Moshav Bnei Atarot, the building served as a school for the children of the moshav. The building was later converted into a regional school. Today the building serves as the administrative building of the regional school.
