Pisgah High School officially opened on August 29, 1966 with an enrollment of 974 students and 49 teachers. The creation of the high school was in response to a desire to consolidate schools within Haywood County to two, replacing four other high schools in the area including Canton, Reynolds, Bethel, and Clyde High School. Pisgah High School today continues to educate the children of Canton, North Carolina.
Like Pisgah, Tuscola High School was created in response to Haywood County’s desire in 1963 to consolidate schools in the area. Originally, the school only taught sophomores, juniors, and seniors but in 1993 added freshman to the student body. The school today has over 900 students with approximately 90 teachers.
