Cave Spring High School is a public secondary school in Roanoke, Virginia. It is under the jurisdiction of Roanoke County Public Schools. Cave Spring is one of two high schools that serve southwest Roanoke County and one of five high schools that serve the Roanoke County school district. Cave Spring High School was also named as the #1 public high school in the Roanoke Valley by the Roanoker magazine in 2009 for academic performance.

History[edit]

Cave Spring High School opened in 1956. In 1968, the high school was moved to its current site, while its original building became Cave Spring Junior High School, which would later become Cave Spring Middle School in 2002. Cave Spring held grades 10-12 for a large number of years until 2002, when it fed approximately half of its 10-12 population into Hidden Valley High School after it was completed and first opened.

Athletics[edit]

The mascot is a knight and the sports teams currently play in the AA River Ridge District and Region IV. Before Hidden Valley opened, Cave Spring was an AAA school, playing in the AAA Western Valley District and before that in the AAA Roanoke Valley District until its dissolution.


The Knights have won 16 Virginia High School League state championships, one AAA Competition Cheerleading title in 2014, seven in AA which are five girls volleyball titles won in the 2002-2003, 2003-2004, 2005-2006, 2006-2007, and 2011-2012 seasons, one AA Girls Softball title in 2013, and the two AA Boys Basketball titles in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010; one unclassified title in boys golf in 1964; and six AAA titles, which are two girls' gymnastics titles in 1976 and 1981; two boys swimming titles in 2000 and 2001; one girls swimming title in 2001; and one boys basketball title in 2002.
