Lane High School is a former public school in Charlottesville that was replaced in the late 1970's when Charlottesville High School was constructed. The building was sold to Albemarle County, which now uses it as its main administration building.
Before desegregation, Lane was the city's high school for white students, whereas Venable High School was the city high school for black children. Both schools closed in the fall of 1958. The school was reopened in February, 1959 and integrated by members of The Charlottesville Twelve in September, 1959.
