It was located on the edge of the former Kilauea Plantation community. The three buildings are a U-shaped administration-classrooms building, a cafeteria, and a teacher's cottage. A big lawn in front of the three buildings is crossed by a circular driveway. The main building was designed by County Department of Public Works' architect John Waiamau, and the others were designed by Tai King Leong.
The complex was deemed significant for NRHP listing "as a typical rural schoolhouse on the island of Kauai and for its associations with the development of public education in the town of Kilauea.":3
