Chattooga High School, (CHS / Chattooga County High School) is a public high school in the northwest Georgia city of Summerville, USA. It is located in Chattooga County and enrolls 850 students. It is a part of Chattooga County School District.

Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year the district began holding school for four days per week instead of five in all of its schools, including Chattooga High.[4] As a result each school day is longer. The district saved $800,000 in its first year of four day per week operations.[5]


In 1964 Menlo, Lyerly, and Summerville High Schools combined into Chattooga High School. Summerville High School was built across from J.R. "Dick" Dowdy Park. The gym/field house, which was 120 yards from the main school, was built a few years after the main school house.
