Demolition of Herbert Hoover High School Begins

Kanawha County Schools
Demolition of Herbert Hoover High School

Demolition crews started tearing down Herbert Hoover High School in Kanawha County on Monday. The high school was damaged by high waters during the 2016 flood. 

According to Briana Warner, Communications Director for Kanawha County Schools, a new high school is expected to be completed in 2021.

Herbert Hoover High School students currently attend school in portables outside of Elkview Middle School. The portables are fenced in and all linked by a covered pier or decking system. The portables include full chemistry and other science labs, smart TVs, a shop classroom, and commons area with a covered plaza.  

The demolition and clean up for the old high school building is expected to be completed by this fall.
