Plainville High School is a public high school in Plainville, Connecticut. It is the only high school in the town of Plainville, Connecticut.


East Street school

Plainville High School was previously located on East Street from the 1920s through the 1950s. It later became Plainville Junior High School up until the mid-1990s when they built the Middle School of Plainville on Northwest Drive. In the 1950s they built a new high school around the corner on Walnut Street. In the 1977 the town renamed the street Robert Holcomb Way, in honor of a former town police officer who was killed while on duty.[3][4]


The high school, originally built in the mid-1950s, was once considered old and outdated but has since been fully renovated. It was expanded in the early 1970s and is now some 30 to 50 years old. Nothing else was done to the school until 2006 when the school began a full-scale renovation that was finished for the 2008-2009 school year. The school now is up-to-date in both appearance and technology. Other upgrades since the school was constructed include a new elevator that was installed in 2002 at the east end of the school to provide accessibility to the second floor, but given the length of the building a second accessible means of access to the second floor is recommended. In the mid-2000s the school discovered that it had asbestos.[5][6]


Renaissance Honor Roll

The Renaissance Honor Roll is computed each marking period and for fall and spring semesters. At the conclusion of each school year, students must be taking a minimum of 5 courses to be eligible for consideration.


The school’s athletic teams are known as the Blue Devils, the same as nearby Central Connecticut State University. For all sports except football they compete in the Northwest Conference (NWC). In football they compete in the Nutmeg League.[7] However, in the 2009-2010 school year the sports teams will compete in the Central Connecticut Conference in the South Division.[8] In baseball, the main rivalry is with Berlin High School (Connecticut). The Plainville Sports Hall of Fame was created in 1998.[9]
