Nice one.
 
It appears to be a Teleconcepts Payfone, Jr. in good condition.  These seem to be fairly popular on ebay.

Is a coin deposit required to make a call?

  As far as I know , it will require a coin(s) to operate it .

 I have not picked it up yet !
 
 Like I said , it is from a school !

This model was part of TeleConcepts' novelty line introduced in 1984.

So it doesn't function as a payphone? You can make a call without a coin but if you put a coin in it goes to the "coin bank", like a piggy bank?

It is a replica ! Nexxtech !   I think it is full size .

I like it because it is a conversation piece , but likely not worth much !

I use it to save loose change !
