Robert E. Peary Middle School – Gardena CA

Description

During the New Deal this school was part of a six year school known as the Gardena High School as can be seen in the photos below. In 1956, however, due to overcrowding, a separate senior high school was built and this became the Robert E. Peary Middle School. A photo of the decorative relief pictured below is still proudly displayed on the school’s home page.

    I went there in the early 70’s. Could you please tell me what the original build date was?

    • We’ve contacted the school to try to find out more — and to get a contemporary photo! If you have a photo, please send it to us.
