בית הספר
מבנה זה שימש כבית ספר לילדי המושבה הטמפלרית. המבנה ובית ההתכנסות היו באותה חצר. כיתות הלימוד היו בקומת המסד ובקומה העליונה התגוררו המורים והכומר הכפרי. המרתף שימש לאחסון.
בחזית הבניין יש מרפסת לקישוט, שמונחת על קורות בטון מעוטרות. החלונות נשמרו בסגנונם המקורי המקושט. לפני כמה שנים שופץ המבנה תוך שימור מראה החזית שלו. עם זאת, מדרגות העץ הפנימיות המובילות לקומה השנייה הוחלפו, כך גם מעקה המרפסת האחורית ותקרות החדרים. סביב המבנה נשארו שרידים מגדר האבן האופיינית למושבה הטמפלרית.

בראשיתו של מושב בני עטרות שימש המבנה כבית ספר לילדי המושב. מאוחר יותר הוסב המבנה לבית ספר אזורי. כיום משמש המבנה כבניין המנהלה של בית הספר האזורי.

The School
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.
