Gordon Lee High School is a public high school located in Chickamauga, Georgia, USA. The school is part of the Chickamauga City School District which serves the City of Chickamauga in Walker County, Georgia.[3] Gordon Lee High School was founded by a grant left by the late Gordon Lee of Chickamauga. This grant included a plot of land along with enough money to get the school started.

The first graduation consisted of one student, Leon Wiley, in 1917. The Main Building, Olive Lee Building, and Tom Lee Building were constructed in 1930. The Ware-Jewell Activities Center holds a gymnasium, classrooms, and a technology lab. The center also harbors the Arthur Yates Building that contains math and science classrooms. Since 1991, Gordon Lee High School and Gordon Lee Middle school have shared a new band room and cafeteria, with the construction of the middle school. Construction of an extension to the gymnasium which includes new class rooms was completed during the 2013-2014 school year.

Sports[edit]

Gordon Lee High School is the home of the Trojans. The football team also has a substantial rivalry with Trion High School. The annual Gordon Lee/Trion football game is the oldest continuous rivalry in the state of Georgia. Recently the men's and women's basketball teams, wrestling team, softball team, and girls' golf team have been very successful, winning multiple region, area, and state championships.
