James River High School (JRHS) is a Group-1A-size public high school in Buchanan, Virginia. It serves the northern part of Botetourt County, including the towns of Buchanan, Eagle Rock, Fincastle, and Springwood. James River was founded in 1959 with the consolidation of the Buchanan, Eagle Rock, and Fincastle high schools.

Recently, renovations to the school were completed. A new athletic center, media lab, administrative offices, and science labs were created.[2]

Sports[edit source | edit]

The Knights have captured four Group A State Championships in Women's Softball in 2003, 2004, 2006, and 2011.[citation needed] Pitcher Angela Tincher graduated from James River. The Knights also won states in Group A Men's Basketball in 2010. James River has a successful volleyball team, winning the state competition in 2010.

Drama[edit source | edit]

JRHS advanced to the Virginia State Theatre Competition in Charlottesville in 2007. The "Knightly" players won second in the Region C Theatre Competition earlier in November 2007.
