School for Boys

-A A +A
1939–1940, C. W. Dickey

The core of the School for Boys centers on an irregular pentagonal space, which a paved parking lot and basketball court make more utilitarian than attractive. It includes three reinforced-concrete buildings: a single-story L-shaped dining hall (now offices), a three-story classroom building, and a two-story administration building. In addition, six dormitories were built on the hillside above this core complex. Compared to the School for Girls, this building program reflects a tighter budget and the influence of the modern movement; however, hipped roofs and open lanai-like corridors instill a sense of Hawaii.
