Built in 1957, Shadle Park High School was an edifice that stood apart from other high schools in Spokane. It was designed by the architecture firm Culler, Gale, Martell & Norriet as Spokane’s first Modernist high school.
The school was surrounded by a sloping central exterior courtyard and had orderly banks of double-hung windows. The school received a number of awards during its brief existence. In 2007, it underwent a massive renovation.
In addition to its striking architectural design, Shadle Park High School’s curriculum was a model of modern school architecture. The school’s faculty was comprised of a mix of men and women.
It was staffed by experienced educators, including John Rodkey, who had been a math teacher at North Central High School for 13 years. The dean of boys and girls were Harry Finnegan and Helen Cleveland.
The class of 1974 is gearing up for its 40th reunion. Taking place at Ascension Greek Orthodox Cathedral, the gathering featured live music by East Bay Mudd, playing songs from the class’ high school years.
Designers Heidi Hansen and Nancy Nelson Norman decorated the two rooms. Lighted tables and chairs added fun and remembrance. The lighting fixtures became wardrobe accessories for many of the class members.
