The J.H. Boyd Girls High School is of architectural significance as one of the most ornamental and distinctive of the Education Department schools of the 19th century. It was the only 19th century State School to have a three storey central block, reflecting its prominent location in full view of the railway line from Port Melbourne to Flinders Street. The schools size and style are evidence of the rapid growth in population and wealth in Melbournes suburbs as a result of post-gold rush consolidation and prosperity.
