This one-story, H-shaped wood building is topped by a high roof with broad overhanging eaves. Its unique features include: a series of classrooms with a wall of double-hung windows located opposite a wide lanai that can be used for covered play space; the geometric grillwork used in the design of folding wood doors and window openings, and a centrally located administrative center. The building is an example of educational architecture adapted to the climate of Hawaii. Castle Memorial Hall is significant for its planning and design of indoor and outdoor spaces for use in the education of young children in Hawaii.
