Henry Perrine Baldwin High School is a public high school in Wailuku, Hawaii. Serving in the major commercial, industrial, and municipal communities of the island of Maui, its curriculum offers a wide range of courses, including Advanced Placement courses. Henry Perrine Baldwin High School was accredited in 2012 by the Western Association of Schools & Colleges for a period of six years. Henry Perrine Baldwin High School is operating under School/Community-Based Management.



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.[4] The campus features the bronze sculpture Kū Kilakila (1997) by Honolulu-born Joel H. K. Nakila.
