LOUISA COUNTY, Va. -- After several years without a high school to call their own, hundreds of Louisa County students will head to the new Louisa County High School today.
The old Louisa County High School was severely damaged by the 2011 earthquake. It was one of six schools damaged from the quake, two of which were destroyed.
Since then, high school student's have attended Louisa County Middle school and went to classes in trailers outside of the school.
Teachers and administrators dedicated the new Louisa County High School Sunday afternoon. Sunday's ceremony featured speeches, videos and music, and both students and alumni were there.
Students and their families got to take a tour of the new school during an open house on Monday.
The new facility features reinforced structures. The new high school is also slightly bigger and able to fit about 300 more students than the old one.
