The opening of East Rockingham County High School relieved a severe overcrowding problem at nearby Spotswood High School.
Located in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, the newly-built high school in Elkton is designed to house 1,200 students. It is one of four public high schools in the county.
The school’s setting – with the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Massanutten Mountain range to the west — provides inspiration for students and staff. Recently, ERHS has been selected as one of 66 Virginia schools being recognized for efforts as a Virginia Naturally School. Students in these schools learn about the environment and how to be good stewards of the Commonwealth’s natural resources.
Shockey built a two-story academic wing, 650-seat auditorium, main and auxiliary gymnasiums, commons and cafeteria areas, and an administration area to complete the new high school.
