History

Greenup County High School was officially dedicated in 1972. It was built by Foson Construction Company out of Ashland, Kentucky. The school contains four grades, 9-12. It was formed when McKell High School, Greenup High School, and Wurtland High School were closed. That is the explanation for the school mascot, Musketeer, and motto, All For One, and One For All. In the Spring of 2007, the Greenup County Board of Education approved the 8 million dollar renovation of the high school. It was constructed by J and H Reinforcing and Structural Erectors from Portsmouth, Ohio. Phases 1 and 2 consisted of The renovations to the upstairs and downstairs of the current building. Phase 3 consisted of new HVAC units for the building. In the Spring of 2010, construction of two special education classrooms was approved by the Kentucky Department of Education and the Greenup County Board of Education. All construction work is now complete.

In the Winter of 2010, Greenup County High School was dedicated as being Persistently Low Achieving. Since then, Superintendent of Greenup County Schools Steve Hall has vowed to bring the school back to the top.

Starting with the Freshmen of 2011-2012 (Class of 2015), The Greenup County School District began a "Freshman Academy" which helped students in Grade 9 make the transition from Middle School to High School. Since the Academy has started, there has been less failures, and improved attendance at school.
