This article deals with the creation of an educational institution, the School for Apprentice Craftsmen of Minas Gerais, installed in Belo Horizonte in 1910. We present here some reflections about the production of this school as a place of formation for the working citizen in the Brazilian republic. We also discuss the implications of its location in the social and spatial fabric of the city, as well as the production of its destined space into a schooling space. Using as primary sources the first reports from the school´s Principal and newspapers published in Minas Gerais in that period of time, this work approaches the constitution of the School for Apprentice Craftsmen and its configuration in the urban culture and the working environment of the Minas Gerais capital.
