1971 Pisgahteer and 1971 Tuscola Mountaineer Now Available

Thanks to our partner, Haywood County Public Library, the 1971 issues of the Pisgah High School and Tuscola High School yearbooks are now available on our website.

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.

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.
