Built in 1958, it was situated at the feet of the Conshohocken Hills in the southwestern section of Upper Merion Township on Croton Road. It was another pod-based school like Candlebrook before it.

On the same property is the restored Roberts School - a one-room schoolhouse from the 1800s. Both were named after the Honorable Jonathan Roberts, a US senator from Upper Merion who was instrumental in setting up the older school. It sat next to McKaig Nature Center which provided a wonderful environmental experience for the students.

The one-room Roberts school still stands, however the 1958 building was demolished in 2000 to make way for a new Roberts Elementary School.
