The former elementary school for boys and, simultaneously, 4th upper elementary school for boys and girls was built in the Modern style in 1912 to 1913 to the design of the Chief Town Engineer of Žižkov, Josef Motejl, the author of several school buildings in Žižkov. The Council acknowledged that the District School Council approved the construction of a new school building on Lupáčova Street on June 7, 1911. The modern, Jubilee School of Emperor Franz Joseph I opened in 1913 within sight of the first ever school in the territory of today’s Žižkov (the old Olšany school on Táboritská 16). It was renamed after Wilson when the independent Czechoslovakia was formed. The school even had showers for its pupils which, as the old-timers remember, were occasionally used by other schools as well. The building has remained a dominant of the corner of Lupáčova and Táboritská and served its original purpose to this day.
