Fountain Inn High to Relieve Overcrowding at Mauldin and Hillcrest High Schools
Greenville County Schools continues to experience student population growth in the Golden Strip area of the district. GCS has planned for this growth with the goal of decreasing the student population at our two largest high schools, Hillcrest High and Mauldin High Schools, and constructing the new Fountain Inn High School. This construction project was planned to shift student populations among the three schools.
Student Assignment Proposal
Students currently attending Hillcrest or Mauldin High Schools will not be impacted. Fountain Inn High School will open with 9th grade in 2021, adding a grade each year, with all four grades, 9th through 12th, attending in the 2024-25 school year. Students currently in 7th grade will be 9th grade students the year Fountain Inn High opens.
Families of students that have another student at Hillcrest or Mauldin High School will have the option of their rising 9th grade student for the 2021-22 school attending with their older sibling.
