Southern Lee High School

Location: Sanford, NC
Architect: LS3P Associates, Ltd.
SF: 184,000


J.M. Thompson constructed a new two-story, 184,000 square foot high school for Lee County. The high school includes classrooms, administrative offices, gymnasiums, auditorium, kitchen/cafeteria, and library. Sitework included football stadium, track and field house, soccer fields, tennis courts, parking lots, bus and student parking facilities.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate J.M. Thompson Company on the outstanding job they did on the construction of Southern Lee High School. This project had a very tight schedule from the inception, with construction starting in the beginning of winter. Despite multiple snow and ice storms (and a very wet winter), J.M. Thompson Company stayed on site and was able to get footings established, allowing the job to move ahead. Southern Lee High School Opened on schedule, to rave reviews from the owner.
