Scot Memorial School

Scott Memorial History:

Scott Memorial High School was dedicated to R Henry Scott, a black educator for forty-seven years in Wythe County. When the school reopened in 1952, it served 125 black high school students from Wythe, Grayson, Bland, Pulaski, and Carroll counties and from the city of Galax.

Wythe County schools were integrated and reorganized during the 1965-66 school year. The school became Wytheville Intermediate School and housed grades seven and eight from the Wytheville attendance area. In 1970, after renovation and an addition to the building, the sixth grade was added.

During the 1973-74 school year, grade levels were changed to grades five, six, and seven. During the 1975-76 school year the name was again changed, this time to Scott Memorial Elementary School. With the introduction of middle schools to Wythe County during the 2002-2003 school year, the school became Scott Memorial Middle School, housing grades six, seven, and eight.

Scott Memorial Middle School has approximately 375 students in grades six, seven,and eight. SMMS is accredited by the state of Virginia and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
