DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – A new middle school is being built in Dorchester School District Two, near Beech Hill Elementary, and officials are seeking community input to help name the new school.
The new school is projected to open in August 2022 and will serve students in grades sixth through eighth.
