Fort Knox High School is a high school in Hardin County, Kentucky, serving grades 9-12 on the grounds of Fort Knox. The original building was constructed in 1958, with further additions in 1961, 1966, 1987 and 1989.[3] In April 2008 a $18.1 million construction project funded by money from the Department of Defense Education Activity which runs the Fort Knox Community Schools system was begun to construct a new metal-roofed brick and masonry-facade two-story building, connecting to the existing vocational school and the gym. The new building replaced 71,510 square feet (6,643 m2) of the original 1958 facility. It includes 20 new classrooms, two computer labs, a commons, geothermal heating and air conditioning, recessed lockers for improved traffic flow, and specialized functional areas for art, band, science labs, and technology courses. It has a capacity of 462 students. Groundbreaking was April 2008, construction was completed in July, and the dedication ceremony was held on August 7. Most of the old high school building has been demolished.[4]
