Completed in 1974, Gibson Southern was created as a consolidation of Fort Branch Community School, Haubstadt Johnson, and Owensville Montgomery High Schools. Gibson Southern High School graduated its first class of Seniors in the Spring of 1975.
Three junior high schools feed into Gibson Southern to form its student body: Fort Branch Community School, Haubstadt Community School and Owensville Community School. Gibson Southern and these three community schools are the schools which compromise the South Gibson School Corporation.
Starting in February 2008, Gibson Southern High School began a multi-million dollar renovation project. This overhaul is expected to be completed by August 2010. Gibson Southern completed the renovation in March of 2011.
In 1974, Gibson Southern was originally a member of the Pocket Athletic Conference (PAC). In 1980, the school left the PAC to form the Big 8 Conference with 7 former Southern Indiana Athletic Conference schools. In 1992, Gibson Southern left the Big 8 to rejoin the PAC.

In 2013, The Marching Titans program disbanded, instead focusing on concert band, due to declining participation.
