"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." Benjamin Franklin’s quote from the 1700s still rings true - especially this time of year as thousands of South Carolina students are wrapping up their first week back at school. McMillan Pazdan Smith had the great honor to work on the new Spartanburg High School, Fairforest Middle School, and Whalebranch Early College High School, all opening in time to welcome students for the 2019 – 2020 school year. We are humbled to have the opportunity to design 21st century learning spaces to students across the Southeast and beyond—swipe to see some of these spaces! We wish all students a very happy school year!
