Allison and Allison designed the 1921 Burbank High School, located at 902 N. Third Street. In 2001, the architectural firm of gkkworks undertook a modernization project: the First Phase included an administration and classroom building and library; Phase Two involved demolishing existing classroom buildings and building a new gymnasium, swimming pool, and parking structure with tennis courts on the roof. The 1,300-seat auditorium was preserved and renovated.
