Because of the rapid growth of Loudoun County, the school system has consistently been building schools for the past years. Rock Ridge High School is set to open in September 2014, in time for the 2014-2015 school year.
Located on Loudoun Drive in Loudoun Valley Estates, Rock Ridge will be right next to Rosa Lee Carter Elementary School, which opened in 2007.
It doesn’t look like much yet, but construction goes quickly! Loudoun County Public Schools is one of the fastest growing school systems in the area, and has a lot of experience in building new schools.
In a meeting last May 14, LCPS approved Rock Ridge High School’s first principal. John Duellman will be serving as the principal of the LCPS’s 14th high school. He is the current principal of Mercer Middle School in Aldie, and will officially become the principal of Rock Ridge High School on July 1st.
Construction started in the Spring of 2013 and Rock Ridge High School will be Open for new students in just over 1 year! It will provide immediate and welcome relief to overcrowded schools like Briar Woods High School.
Opening a new high school affects middle schools too – the student population gets redistributed as middle schools and elementary schools will begin feeding into the new high school. Stone Hill Middle School, Creighton’s Corner Elementary, Legacy Elementary, and Rosa Lee Carter Elementary schools will all be affected in the coming years.
