Tõstamaa School situates in a more than 80-year-old manor house which is built in the post-classicistic style. The first data about Tõstamaa (Testama) manor is from the year 1553. Year 1804 is considered to be the year when the building of the present house began. At that time the house had only one floor. In the 1860s a two-story building with stone and brick walls, with a tin roof and with arched cellars is mentioned. The reconstruction work was done in 1876-1877 due to the new trends in architecture. Since then the arrangement of space has been the same: the corridor system which goes through the house, a large vestibule with fancy steps to the main entrance, rooms with wall and ceiling ornaments. When white ceilings became into fashion during the first years of the Estonian Republic the manorial paintings were slightly hacked, plastered and covered with white paint, also the walls were painted white.
In 1996 during the extensive repairs and the investigation of antiquities these well-preserved unique wall and ceiling paintings – especially fancy ones in the ceiling of the hall, were discovered. Total 24 buildings formed the manor ensemble (1869), among which was also a spacious square stable-coach house with its inner court where original horses’ drinking vessels cut from one stone have preserved to this day. In the main house there are classrooms, the headmaster’s office, teachers’ workrooms, the library, the arts and crafts classroom and some storage rooms; in the so-called stable house there are the school cafeteria, the sauna with shower rooms, the domestic science classroom, up to date school boardinghouse, the computer classroom and in the former oat tower the music classroom.
