The school was built in 1908 with additions in 1929 and 1955, and is on the National Register of Historic Places (ID #85002916). It is also an official City of Seattle landmark.

QAHS closed in 1981 due to decreasing enrollment. Students in the school's attendance area transferred to various high schools in the district.
