Berkeley High School is looking better than ever, now that the new buildings are practically complete and very much in harmony with the landmark Art-Deco ensemble designed in 1938 by Henry H. Gutterson and William Corlett, Sr.

The Berkeley Community Theater, Florence Schwimley Little Theater, and the shop and science buildings of Berkeley High School were designated a City of Berkeley Landmark on 7 December 1992. They form part of the Civic Center Historic District and are listed on the California State Historic Resources Inventory.
