What horn is in the Space Age AV-34 plate? Newer Faraday horn could mean anything. I assume you mean the 6120s like your college?

So no Space Age Electronics AV-34 but a Faraday U-HNH horn?

The Clyde J. Weston High School was built in 1975 and originally had Simplex 4051 horns in continuous on 4050-80 light plates that blinked in slow march time. 4 years later, the horn in the Carpentry classroom broke down and was replaced with a Wheelock 34 on a Space Age Electronics AV32 which also blinked in slow march time. In 1983, half of the second floor had a fire break out. The alarms in that wing were all replaced with Simplex 9806 horns on 2903 light plates that blinked in march time. The drama classroom on the second floor and the media center also had 9806s replaced. In 1998, the chorus and the weight room has Cerberus Pyrotronics horns installed in them. Then in 2000, the auxiliary gym was redone and had TrueAlerts in continuous installed. Finally in 2004, the computer technology room had a Gentex Commander 3 put in in continuous set on electromechanical horn.

System Sensor was founded in 1984 though... most major manufacturers moved away from relay-based panels by then. And wouldn't the system have a Gamewell panel if there were Gamewell pulls? Remember those companies were competitors at the time!
