Default River Bluff High School. 1 Year Later

Hey Guys,

I know last year I was given a walk through of the school and facilities and posted some barebones pics of the place.

With school around the corner we got our yearly walk through today looking over some of the building construction methods, and materials used in it's construction along with some of the fire prevention systems in place there.

Anyways, I got a few better pics today and thought I would share them with everyone. This place is so incredibly nice.

And I thought my brand new high school (Westwood) was nice.

Our team opens up the football season there next Saturday. Gonna be a helluva game.

The baselines on a baseball field should be dirt NOT GRASS...that drives me crazy, too tater-esque.

Really nice school otherwise. I think I saw somewhere that the AA football state championship games would be played there this year.

Speaking as someone who works in high schools here in Georgia...DAMN!!!
That is one very nice facility.

The one I'm at now is old, dated (gym hasn't been renovated since 1975).

That rivals and surpasses some of the Gwinnett, Marietta and Forsyth area schools here in Georgia.

They really pissed out on the branding though, huh? Nearly ripped off Goose Creek's logo...and it is pretty bad itself.

Those are very nice facilities. But, it genuinely angers me to think about the money they spend on athletic facilities and a form over function academic building.

Son attended there last year...schedule was odd. There was no designated lunch times so two days a week he got no lunch unless I stuffed a couple of sandwiches in his bag. But, on other days, he'd have 1 1/2 - 2 hours of unsupervised time during the school day....which meant he was playing football or something outside and then skipping that last class of the day he was supposed to be attending. I guess he just wasn't ready for that level of responsibility as a 14 year old. Plus, no lockers so they'd have to carry all their supplies, coats, books and Ipad wherever they went all day.

Wasn't a fan so he's attending somewhere else this year LOL.

I'm right there with you man. While these facilities are insanely nice, it's overboard.

The school is just as nice on the inside also to the other poster on here.

I personally voted against the 800 Million Dollar bond referendum in the 08' general election.

This school was built through back room politics and real estate deals. Take that one to the bank.


But the press box serves as a double box. You have suits for the football side and the baseball field has tables as seen in the pics. It's all part of the football field press box.

I'm not big on the lack of dirt lines in the field too. Being a baseball guy back in the day myself, I always enjoyed to play on dirt lines and brick dust vs. Just dirt.

Right field somewhat resembles a Fenway type look just no "green monster"

That football stadium is INSANE. Meanwhile Richland One still can't afford more than 3 run down stadiums shared between six high schools.

They are supposed to be a paperless school. Also, their flex scheduling allows them time to attend study hall sessions, which are self-monitored.

Trust me....my kid had text books he carried in his book bag all day, all year long. They did have an ipad and a lot of their assignments were done on ipad and emailed to teacher, but he still had algebra assignments he did on paper and turned in so the teacher could see their work. Although, at the start of last year, no homework grades counted in the final grade...just exam scores were used to calculate final grade. Guess how many kids did the homework? So they changed it for the second semester and homework counted for 15% of final grade LOL.
