In 1933 an earthquake devastated the Southland and destroyed the previous administration building. By 1935, the community rebuilt the administration building into the iconic structure we know today. For 85 years the building has stood as a symbol of resilience and achievement to a community that has been knocked down, but always comes back stronger. 

We, the alumni of Compton High School appeal to the honorable Compton High School Board of Trustees to preserve the historic administration building on Acacia Street as you continue the modernization of the campus for the well-deserving students and staff.
