History of Jackson County High School
Jackson County High School’s origins are traced to the opening of Braselton High School in 1921. Located in downtown Braselton, the school operated from 1921-1957 using the nickname “B’s” in reference to the town. In the fall of 1957, the name was changed to Jackson County High School with a new school being built on Highway 53. The mascot was changed to Panthers at that time. Several of the old Braselton School buildings were used thru the 1960’s by the school district and 2 remain standing to this day. Jackson County High School was open in Braselton from 1957-1979 when the school was moved to Gordon Street in Jefferson, the former site of Bryan High School to form a true County wide High School. Bryan High opened in 1948 as an African American school for Jackson County and in 1958 adopted the mascot of Panthers. Bryan High was open from 1948-1968 when it was closed and was used for various community activities until it again became a school again in the fall of 1979. Jackson County High School was located at this site on Gordon Street from 1979-1990 when a new Jackson County Comprehensive High School was built on Highway 11 and is the current site today.
