River Bluff High, Lexington 1’s newest high schools and one of the largest in South Carolina, will be formally dedicated Nov. 3.

The 524,000-square-foot school, which opened Aug. 19 for nearly 1,500 students in grades nine through 12, is set on three levels on a wooded hillside.

Among its features are an art gallery, music recording studio and video broadcast center as well as a coffee bar, cafeteria styled like a shopping mall food court, and a store selling T-shirts, sweat shirts and other items with the school’s alligator mascot. There also is a pair of gymnasiums, two theaters and an outdoor amphitheater.

The dedication event is at 3 p.m., and guests will be able to tour the campus.
