The original Warrenville Elementary School was located on four acres of land at Timmerman and Verdery Streets, approximately one block from Highway 421, in Warrenville, South Carolina. Built by the Graniteville Manufacturing Company in 1925, the school was sold to the Consolidated School District of Aiken County for the bargain price of $1.00! However, there was a reversion clause for the property to be returned to the local textile manufacturer if the building should ever cease being used for educational purposes. The original building consisted of eleven classrooms built around a central auditorium on two floors. In 1954, an addition which included two classrooms and a cafeteria was built. Today the original building is a senior apartment building.
On January 3, 1995, the new Warrenville Elementary was opened. the new state-of-the-art school is located on twenty acres of land at 569 Howlandville Road, approximately two miles from the original school. Built to accomodate 500 students, the present site has eighteen regular classrooms, a music room, an art room, a central workroom, a media/library facility, an office complex, two speech rooms, a computer lab and a cafeteria. Two mobile units house two Kindergarten classes. During the 1996-1996 school year, rezoning increased enrollment to approximately 395 students. With the development of new neighborhoods nearby, enrollment has stabilized at over 400 students.
