San Francisco architectural partnership of Kelham and Day designed the Marina Middle School during the mid-1930s, a low economic point for architects across the US. Architect George Kelham (1871-1936) died the year that this building was completed. The building had a U-Shaped plan, with a long central wing, aligned north-south, flanked by shorter side wings, projecting east. In 2017, the school accommodated about 850 students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
