School History

The construction was finished in 1922 thanks to the time and efforts donated by the people of the community. A special thanks was due to John Peters and J.L. Hyder, who were the leaders of this project. In the early 1950's, a block building was constructed near the old frame building. The new building was used for high school purposes leaving the original building for the elementary. However, in the spring of 1958, the original building was destroyed by fire, creating a need for another new building. 

Late in the year 1959, a modern brick building was constructed overlooking the Unaka Mountain Range for use by the high school.

Joe E. Taylor, who had been principal in the other building, was again the principal and worked with 16 teachers. The 1970's saw expansion of the vocational programs in all of the Carter County high schools, with a new building at Unaka High housing Auto Body Repair, Cosmetology, General Building and Trades, and Vocational Office Education. Also, students had the option of attending alternative vocation classes at Hampton or Happy Valley#58 Auto Mechanics, Drafting, Health Occupations, Small Engines, and Electricity and Welding.

The 1980's and 1990's were years of tremendous growth academically for Unaka High School. The state-mandated curriculum changes have improved the quality and the opportunities available to our students. Requirements have been raised to better prepare students for higher education and immediate employment. The introduction of technology into all disciplines is keeping Unaka High abreast of changes continually taking place.
