ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT IT COULD BE A LOT WORSE. They knocked down the old Parkdale Collegiate building in 19XX, and the new school has expanded steadily on its foursquare successor. Of course, it would have been nearly impossible to build additions on the original school without turning it into a Frankenstein's monster, so it's hard to argue with the utilitarian logic of the new building.
