Ebenezer Avenue Elementary Turns 100

The oldest school in Rock Hill School District Three, Ebenezer Avenue School, was originally built in 1921.  Located near downtown Rock Hill, the school served as a neighborhood school for grades one through eight and now serves children in 3-year-old kindergarten through fifth grade.

In 1986, the old school was demolished to make way for a new facility.  Students and teachers spent a year at the old Leslie School during construction.

The new two-story brick building opened in September 1987.  An addition to the school's media center was completed in the fall of 1997.  A new building was completed in the spring of 2018 that brought the Montessori Program to the school.

Ebenezer Avenue Elementary is located just blocks from Winthrop University and Knowledge Park at 242 Ebenezer Avenue.
