Battle Creek High School

A rendering of the new Battle Creek High School located in Spring Hill.

The Maury County School Board has approved a contract with Smith Constructors Inc. to begin site work on the new Battle Creek High School, expected to open in the fall of 2024.

The vote, which was passed 7-3 during a special called meeting last Tuesday, follows initial plans for Hewlett Spencer to take on the job. Superintendent of Schools Lisa Ventura announced that the building company had ended their relationship, though no reason was given. Of all the bidders to begin site work, Ventura said Smith Contractors was the cheapest.
