The Braintree School stands in central western Pawlet, at the southwest corner of Warren Switch Road and Vermont Route 153. The small property includes a single-story brick schoolhouse and a small wood-frame structure that served historically as an outhouse and woodshed. The school is built of red brick, laid in American bond, with a gabled roof. It measures 22 by 27 feet (6.7 m × 8.2 m), with the long axis oriented parallel to Warren Switch Road. The main entrance is in the east façade, facing Route 153, centered between two sash windows, with a small oval opening above that houses a wooden panel identifying the building. A secondary entrance is located on the south side, sheltered by a small gabled porch. A bank of windows, added in the 1930s to meet state requirements, occupy the west facade. The outhouse/woodshed, originally located directly adjacent to the school, was moved about 20 feet (6.1 m) behind it, in order to provide for improved drainage around the school. The interior of the school has a small foyer, and a single classroom.
