Frank A. Payne and Son, General Contractor; building was built at cost of $3.72 per square foot in 1940, a much lower cost than for other schools in California at that time; in 2005, this public school served grades 9-12 and enrolled 1342 students; tel: (925) 935-2600 (2005);

Kump planned the Acalanes High School to grow incrementally, with a structure of rows being built from the original core; three northeast buildings were built in 1940; three more buildings were erected in 1941 to the west, mirroring the first three; in 1948, a southeast shop building and three more classroom structures lining the south were built; in 1949, a final two classroom rectangles and a library, lined the southwest; a fifth expansion was designed to include an auditorium, music room, cafeteria on the farthest northeast corner of the school property, and girl's gym on the far southwest;
