Okinawa American Dependent HS History

Opened: 1952
Closed: 1957

Okinawa American Dependent High School opened for the 1952-53 school year due to the fact that the enrollment on Okinawa almost doubled that of the previous year. This school contained the sixth grade, junior high, and senior high school students from Okinawa University School. This school was composed of Quonset huts converted to classrooms. Approximately 350 students in grades 6–12 occupied these Quonsets which were used for two decades afterward. In 1956, the school split into a junior high and high school. The school became Kubasaki High School in 1957.
