Page County High School is a public secondary school located in Shenandoah, Virginia. The dedication of the building in 1961 brought together students from the former Shenandoah and Stanley high schools. It is one of the few five-year high schools in the United States, with grade levels 8-12 (pre-freshmen through seniors), and has an enrollment of approximately 700 students. The feeder schools are Shenandoah Elementary, Grove Hill Elementary, and Stanley Elementary. Page County High School has an auditorium that can hold approx. 700 people, a gym with one side of retractable bleachers, a full library, a cafeteria that feeds students three periods each day, and five fully loaded computer labs. In 2005 a distance learning lab was instituted that allows students and teachers to communicate with Luray High School in real time. The school's mascot is the Panther, and athletic fans are said to have "panther pride."

Major Renovations of Page County High School took place during the summer of 2002. The front facade, doors, and windows were replaced, and many interior changes were made. There are seven permanent annexes behind the school that house math and foreign language classes.

Athletic Complex Page County High School houses an exquisite athletic complex, which hosts all of the school's sports. In front of the school are the Baseball and Football fields, as well as the track, which circles the football field. Unlike many tracks, Page County's track is not regulation length, therefore all running events start and end differently. The school's softball field is on a hill behind the high school. The cross country course begins and ends on the football field, but runs through nearby woods and around two large fields, one behind the school and one adjacent to the baseball field. Basketball and volleyball are both played inside the school's gym. The school's golf team practices and plays home matches at the Luray Caverns Country Club.

New Construction

In August 2006, the Page County Board of Supervisors approved construction of two new high schools in the county. These plans would turn the current Page County High School building into a middle school. The groundbreaking was in November 2006, and the school is scheduled to be completed for the opening of the 2009-2010 School year.
