The building contained murals by a then-student and later a well-known cartoonist, Irwin Caplan, two of which, scenes depicting Paul Bunyan and a circus, were restored in 2006-2008;

An addition was made to the original 1923 building in 1929. These two Garfield High buildings underwent a $78 million (later a $86.5 million) historic renovation in 2006-2008; by mid-2007, the pricetag for the renovation had reached $100 million, a new record for the Seattle Public Schools. In 2008, a renovated and enlarged gymnasium opened at the high school as part of the larger building campaign. The gym contained a new girls' locker room, which formerly had been located in a large broom closet. The Quincy Jones Performing Art Center also opened on 09/26/2008;
