Architect William Mallis (1883-1954) designed this high school for the Lake Washington School District in the late 1940s. Originally budgeted to cost approximately $900,000, the two-story complex included a cafeteria, library, study hall, gymnasium and extended, two-floor, classroom wing.The arched design of the gym featured a series of louvers serving as clerestories admitting natural light into the space. It became used a a junior high school and later burned in 1973.

This high school, like Redmond High School within the same district, adopted an innovative geothermal heating/cooling system when it was built.
