History[edit]

The school was established in 1916 by Mr V.I. Moore, superintendent from 1916 to 1925, who left Bartlett to assume a faculty position at the University Of Texas. Mr Swope, chief administrator from 1948 to 1966, retired after overseeing the construction of the 1974 high school building. The Old High School was built in 1917, at a cost of approximately $20,000. The auditorium and additional classrooms were added in 1924 at a cost of about $40,000. The class of 1918 was the first to graduate from the building and from Bartlett High School; the class of 1966 was the last to graduate from the old high school.

In 2000, the new High School building was built. It is the only high school in Bartlett. Bartlett High School did not consolidate with the Bartlett Colored School until 1966.
