Warren County Public Schools is a growing district, adding two to three hundred students per year to the already sizeable district of 13,000 students. With an influx of refugee students and several large industries attracting families, Warren County is no stranger to overcrowding issues. The district has been tackling the problem by adding seven schools over the last 10 years. South Warren Middle and High School,
which opened its doors to students August 3, 2010 has the distinction of being the largest school in Kentucky and the largest insulated concrete building in the nation.
The $67 million building, consisting of 334,000 square feet across seven acres, is home to 750 high school and 459 middle school students. Its shape, says Joanie Hendricks, public relations coordinator at Warren County Public Schools, is that of a boomerang. To maintain separate identities, the middle school is on one side and the high school on the other. The school was paid for with voter approved bonds.
