The old building of the nonclassical secondary school (boarding school) was built in 1900. The street where it was located was known as Tambovo-Saratovskaya Street as the Saratov road passed here.

Despite the differences in the ornamentation of the western and eastern parts, which proves the fact of a time gap in their construction, the building still represents an integral structure. The interest here is centered on a slightly protruding central part crowned with a high fronton of intricate brickwork. The profiled cornice and head moldings are artfully designed.

Originally, the building belonged to the nonclassical secondary school that was housed here in 1908-1918. Its students were children of different social groups but mainly children of merchants, traders, priests, and doctors because the tuition fee was quite high – nearly 100 rubles per year.

In Soviet years, it was Young Communist International 2nd-stage school. The building was occupied by Kirsanov normal school in 1931-1955. Later, there was school №4 that changed its status in 1956 for a boarding school.

One of the graduates of Kirsanov non-classical school was Alexander Antonov. His family moved to Kirsanov in the late 90s of the XIX century. Antonov is known as the leader of the “Antonovshchina” movement.
