New high school construction continues


Earlier this week, construction crews were installing sheathing and insulation around the exterior of the seventh Alamance-Burlington high school. The new $67 million high school is currently under construction at 3368 South N.C. 119, near the Honda Power Equipment manufacturing plant in Swepsonville.

Portions of the new high school have been roughed in since steel beams and exterior concrete walls were erected this spring.

“At present, this project is on time, on budget, and approximately 50 percent complete,” ABSS assistant superintendent Dr. Todd Thorpe told The Alamance News Wednesday. “We are optimistic we will meet our anticipated goal for completion in June 2023.”

The county’s seventh high school is scheduled to open for the 2023-24 school year. It will span 221,000-square feet and have classroom capacity for 1,250 students, based on plans previously presented to the school board.

Samet Corporation of Greensboro is the contractor for the new ABSS high school, which was designed by Moseley Architects of Raleigh. The project is being funded by the $150 million bond package that voters approved for ABSS in 2018.
