A great deal of progress has been made at the site of the new high school on Highway 31 North since the groundbreaking in August.

Phase one of The Athens High School Project is complete. The first phase was entitled Site Work Phase 1. Site Work Phase 1 included earthwork and all site utilities, except electrical. Substantial completion was awarded on January 18, 2017.

The remainder of the project is entitled Phase 2. The second phase of the AHS Project began January 19, 2017 with a formal Notice to Proceed. Electrical rough-in and plumbing rough-in have begun. Concrete footing installation has begun. Additional crews will be added Monday, January 30, 2017 to begin the concrete storm shelter construction, telephone and data service raceway and preliminary road work.

Plans are on track to occupy the building during the Fall of 2018. This is an exciting time for our community and our students.
