About Us:

The main two story-building contains over 20 classrooms and a small theater-auditorium. Bullion is an excellent example of neoclassical architecture reflecting pride and commitment to public education and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It was constructed with lightly reinforced, cast-in-place concrete and plaster exterior walls, wood frame first and second floors and a wood frame roof. Interior walls are typically plaster on wood frame. The foundation consists of continuous spread wall footings and isolated pier footings. The construction methods and materials are typical for structures of this age and type.

Bullion Plaza served as a grammar school from 1923 to 1994 when it was closed because of concern that it had fallen into a state of disrepair making it unsuitable for use as a public school.

Bullion was operated most of its lifetime as the town's "Mexican" school reflecting the segregation pattern which prevailed in many Arizona communities including the public school system. Bullion was desegregated during the 1950-51 school year and began integrating Anglo students into Bullion Plaza.
