Aiken High School


    Following completion of Phase 2A of construction in the fall of 2017 and a dedication ceremony in December of that same year, Aiken High School now has a beautiful new 152,633-square-foot facility, featuring new classrooms, a new media center and dining area, and business labs to compliment the previously completed Math and Science Wing.

    Recently completed Phase 2B of the Aiken High project included a new auxiliary gym and classrooms for art, sewing and child care, culinary arts, ROTC and band and chorus. Phase 3 of the Aiken High project includes a renovation of the James A. Taylor Gymnasium. The school's final building project - phase 4 - will add a new, 720-seat auditorium behind the ROTC and music classrooms and upgrades and renovations to the career technology and vocational wing west of the auxiliary gym.
