Soddy-Daisy High School is located in Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee. Originally the towns of Soddy and Daisy each had their own high schools. In 1937 a comprehensive school was built between the two towns on Old Dayton Pike and the names of the towns were combined to name the school.[1] The current building, at 618 Sequoyah Access Road, was opened in 1983.[2] A round gymnasium was built many years after the old school and still stands on the original site. It serves as a wrestling arena for the present school. A memorial built from the bricks of the old school is located on the current high school grounds.

In 2010 the school was the subject of a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation about the school's practice of Christian school prayers at football games and other public events.[3][4]

The school has a combined 462 state and national championships.[citation needed] The mascot of Soddy Daisy High School is a "Trojan" selected by the senior class of 1940 over the "Rams".[1]
