New High School in Fountain Inn Set to Open in 2021!
Greenville County is set to open a new high school in August 2021, located in Fountain Inn, SC. Fountain Inn High School will have an innovative curriculum, setting the school apart from many other local high schools in the area. This will be the first high school in the district to offer STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, the arts and math), with a particular emphasis on advanced manufacturing and technology.
The school will also offer traditional high school curriculum, advanced placement, and college level courses. Students attending FIHS will have block schedules instead of traditional class times. Meaning that periods will vary between 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the subject. It has been said this type of schedule helps students prepare for college.
The original Fountain Inn High, built in 1939, was closed in 1957 upon the opening of Hillcrest High. Since then, Greenville County high school students from this area have been attending Hillcrest High, Woodmont High School, and Mauldin High School. Over the years, the attendance levels have become increasingly high at each of these schools. This new school will take some of each school’s enrollment in effort to help with overcrowding at these three Greenville County High Schools.
Principal Maureen Tiller, currently finishing up her 8th year as Principal at Clinton High School, will be taking on the thrilling position of leading FIHS. Principal Tiller grew up right outside of Aiken, SC and attended Winthrop University, where she received her Masters Degree in Education Administration. As you can guess, she is very excited to be a part of this unbelievable opportunity within South Carolina's education history. Greenville County is projecting a student population of about 1,000, with attendance lines still in the process of being drawn. However, all high schoolers living in Greenville County will be able to attend FIHS.
The mascot of the old Fountain Inn High was the Blue Devils, but the final decision on mascot and colors have not been decided as of yet. Community members of Fountain Inn are exhilarated to have their own High School again, and we believe it is well deserved for this up-and-coming town - located right outside of Simpsonville, SC!
