|Lucy Flower Technical High School for Girls (Flower Tech) is significant under criteria A as the only all-girl public school and the only female vocational school in Chicago's history.3 Flower Tech was the only high school in Chicago run by a female superintendent, principal, and all-female faculty that catered to an entirely female student body. By combining home economics with technical training for the female workforce, the curriculum at Flower Tech exposed the paradox of women's high school education in 20th century America by offering gendered coursework for work in the home and the factory. As Chicago's only open-enrollment high school for girls, Flower Tech created an unparalleled education experience for African American, Anglo- American, and immigrant female students to study alongside one another. Flower Tech not only furthered career and college ambitions, but provided many students one of their only racially-integrated experiences in an otherwise segregated city. Flower Tech is also significant under criteria C as an excellent example of Gothic Revival school architecture that retains its integrity of material, design, and craftsmanship. Flower Tech's period of significance begins in 1927 when the school was constructed and ends in 1965 when the school's enrollment declined and curriculum was altered.
