Las Vegas Centennial Commission marker reads:

As the population of Las Vegas increased throughout the 1920s and the construction of Hoover Dam was assured, many saw the need for a new high school. Principal Maude Frazier overcame public criticism that the location was "too far out of town." Despite opposition, she led a successful bond measure to pay for the school. This noteworthy example of Art Deco architecture was completed in 1930 for $350,000. The new school reflected the growth and maturation of Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Academy now occupies the Las Vegas High School. The building is listed on the local and National Register of Historic Places.
