My grandfather, John Andrew Morrow (Andy), was the Superintendent of Schools in Bradford County for many years.  Under his staff's direction, many of the old one-room school houses were closed as the county consolidated into larger high schools.   I have inherited from him, about 2 dozen negatives of pictures of those schools.

1920 Pierce School Souvenir Booklet lists it as in Troy Township. Fay Morgan tracked fown the other school and there were indeed two Pierce Schools, One in Armenia and one in Troy.

Do You Know that you can search just the 700 pages of School Records on the site  by using the Schools button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page?  You can narrow your search by entering a township name and a surname and using the Find All Words option

The Outhouses or Privies at Pierce School. In the 1889 Report of 
the Pennsylvania Superintendent of Public Instruction, of which I 
have a copy, one of the goals of the Bradford County Superintendent 
of Schools was to have separate outhouses for boys and girls on 
separate areas of the school properties. It appears that Pierce met 
that goal by about 50%.
