Stuarts Draft High School is in the community of Stuarts Draft in south-eastern Augusta County, Virginia. The school opened in 1970 during a consolidation period for the county’s public schools. Stuarts Draft High School originally served grades 8 through 12, and housed the 7th grade due to overcrowding at Stuarts Draft Elementary School (now Guy K. Stump Elementary School). Today it serves 720 students in grades 9 to 12.
