PBA's main classroom building, the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Building, was completed in the fall of 2017! It features eight classrooms, a science lab, fine arts studio, and music and filmmaking studio, a student commons, a tea room, and a Buddhist altar, among other features, Additionally, the school uses a converted dormitory facility on the temple campus of the Honpa Hongwanji Hawaii Betsuin that previously served as its classroom building, PBA also shares facilities, with its educational partner Hongwanji Mission School, and together the two schools provide a coordinated system of Buddhist education from pre-school through grade 12. PBA students utilize the Nu‘uanu YMCA for lifetime fitness classes with Athletic Director, math teacher and U.S. Sumo National Champion Kena Heffernan.
