San Pedro High School
“Although it is the third oldest school in the Los Angeles School District, an entirely new campus was built for San Pedro High School following the 1933 Long Beach Earthquake. Designed by renowned southern California architect Gordon B. Kaufmann, the new buildings were constructed of poured-in-place concrete, grouped according to a cross-axial plan, and thematically united in their use of P.W.A. and Streamline Moderne styling.”
The PWA Administration Building and Language Arts Building are both now protected landmarks.
The WPA also worked on the school making general improvements to the grounds for another $20,190 total. Historical images of the school can be found here.
