The rollercoaster that is 2020 continues. Due to rising numbers of Coronavirus, we are disappointed to announce that all in-person activities at Roper Mountain, including Friday Starry Nights, are suspended. Greenville County Schools is following the guidelines provided by DHEC for the re-opening of schools.

Join us virtually through our series of Star Talks and Star Parties.

Environmental Science & Sustainability Building

The tremendous growth in Greenville and the Upstate over the past few decades has helped to drive the expansion of our programs, filled our existing facility, and fully maximized our services. To meet this need, Greenville County Schools has made a $12.2 million investment in a new Environmental Science and Sustainability Center on our campus. The 30,000 square foot facility will provide unique and immersive educational experiences that foster stewardship of natural resources and engage students and visitors in hands-on learning about the Greenville watershed, the water cycle, and personal and global sustainability.
