The Anglo-Chinese Boys School was founded by Reverend W.E. Horley of the Methodist Episcopal Mission and was built in the year 1895. It was the first Christian mission school as well as the first English school in Kinta. The design of the building was influenced by the cultural exchange introduced by the British and featured a combination of the West and Anglo-Chinese architecture.

The main building, with its prominent quoining was erected and opened in the year 1914. The Edwardian-style building was the proud work of architect CH Labrooy and costs a total of $93,000. 

Stilted arches can be seen along the corridor of the school. 

Colonial windows were featured on the school building as it was built during the British I period, which is from year 1878 to year 1930.
