Kettle Run High School (Prince William County, Virginia)

Kettle Run High School (Prince William County, Virginia)

Originally simply "High School #11," Kettle Run High School is the working name of the new high school in the western portion of Prince William County, Virginia that is slated to be completed by September 2011. It should not be confused with an already-begun school project in neighboring Fauquier County that carries the same name. Because of this, there is speculation that the name of the high school (like many other working names of Prince William County Public Schools) may change prior to a formal naming of the facility.

Referred to in documents of July 2006 as "High School (West)," the property is named for its geographic region, located NW of Nokesville, Virginia. The school property itself is located near the intersection of Schaeffer Lane and Kettle Run Road in a triangle of land south of the Vint Hill Road (Route 215) and north of Nokesville Road (Route 28). Immediately adjoining the property is the site of an elementary school to be built concurrently, referred to in PWCS documents as "Kettle Run Elementary School."

Early estimates of the school's total construction cost were set at $77,744,000, as published in July 2006 by the Prince William County Schools in "Approved Capital Improvement Projects; Fiscal Year 2007-16." Following the budgetary conversations for the coming school year, in the 2006-2007 year, as published in a similar document for the 2008-16 year, the school's estimated date of opening was moved from September 2010 to September 2011, and the price was revised upwards to $95,410,000 for the school listed as "High School @ Kettle Run."

The county's construction plans [http://www.pwcs.edu/ConstructPlan/11TH_HS.html] for the site are available online.

According to Prince William County Planning Commission Public Facility Review #PLN2007-00079, dated February 7, 2007, the high school's proposed capacity stands at 2,053 students. According to the same document, this falls below the recommendations of the established "Level of Service" (LOS) standard of 2,150 students. Again in the same document, it is stated that three new high schools are required by 2010, and current plans show that zero new high schools will be completed for the 2010-2011 school year.
