I found this: "THE RAYMOND SCHOOL, The Common: Greek Revival Style Built in 1939 on land donated by Mary and Caroline Raymond. Built as a WPA Project." in the work: "Brief History of Royalston Historic District Houses" by Royalston Historic District Commission: http://www.royalston-ma.gov/HDC/References/HDC%20Owner%20History%202015-08-18.pdf
I would contact the Royalston Historic District directly for more info at: Historic District Commission | Town of Royalston

I suggest you look at the information provided by The Living New Deal at: https://livingnewdeal.org/us/ma/page/15/ . There is not a huge amount of content on the school, but the site is a great source of New Deal information in general, and provides context on other projects in Massachusetts. Good luck!
