Can Anyone Identify These Vancouver School Buildings?

Right now I am downloading all archival pictures of Vancouver Schools I can find for a project I am working on and I came on a number of schools that are unidentified. Can any of you identify them?

Unidentified Vancouver School ca. 1920 Stuart Thomson, CVA 99-1440

Here's another view of the same school. Ring any school bells?
