Construction has begun on high school in Woodruff, S.C.

July 10, 2023
The new Woodruff High will have more than double the capacity of the existing school.

Spartanburg County (S.C.) School District 4 has broken ground on a new Woodruff High School.

The Post and Courier reports that the 252,000-square-foot high school is being built on 100 acres and will replace the existing Woodruff High.

The school will have the capacity for up to 2,000 students, more than double the 825 students the existing school accommodates.

Voters approved a bond referendum last year that authorized $100 million for a new Woodruff High that could accommodate anticipated growth in the district.

District enrollment is projected to increase from 3,000 students to more than 4,400 students in the next four years as Woodruff continues to experience steady growth.

The new high school is on track to be completed by late 2025.

Once it opens, middle school students will move into the existing high school. Second grade students will move from the primary school into the elementary school and fourth and fifth grade students will move from the elementary school into the middle school.
