Statement of significance: 
The old Pendleton High School building is currently under renovation and conversion to commercial office space. The building is located on the site of the earlier Pendleton High School built in 1888 in the Italianate style. The existing building is loosely based on the Classical Revival style called American Renaissance by Rosalind Clark in her book Architecture Oregon Style. Classical elements include the wide freize and cornice line and pilasters with suggestions of capitals and bases. A lighter color of brick has been used in rectangular forms beneath the windows to suggest panels.
