The leading name suggestion in the survey was Staunton High School, receiving more than 1,800 votes. The next highest vote-getter was Queen City High School, garnering 1,600 votes.
The rest of the preselected names were Shenandoah High School, Shenandoah Valley High School, and Valley High School. Those suggestions fell far beneath the top two, earning between 150 and 250 votes each.
The survey also had the option to let people make their own suggestions, outside of the preselected ones. In that section, many people suggested leaving the name as Robert E. Lee High School.
The Staunton City School Board plans to take the results of the survey into consideration, but ultimately will make the decision on its own. The board is expected to make the decision of a new name at its next meeting.
