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.

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.
