Campus[edit]

The school opened in 1938 and moved to its current building in 1940. It was named for Henry Perrine Baldwin (1842–1911), co-founder of the Alexander & Baldwin corporation; his son, Henry Alexander Baldwin, broke ground for the 1940 school.[2] The campus features the bronze sculpture Kū Kilakila (1997) by Honolulu-born Joel H. K. Nakila.
