George Nelson Tremper High School is a high school located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Part of the Kenosha Unified School District, it was named after George Nelson Tremper, the principal of Kenosha High School from 1911 to 1944. The mascot of Tremper High School is the Trojan.[1]


Built to relieve overcrowding at Bradford High School, the original 272,786-square-foot (25,342.6 m2) school was completed in the fall of 1964, with the first class graduating in June 1965. A successful referendum in 2005 gave the school a new, larger field house, team locker rooms, and a new weight room. In the summer of 2009, the cafeteria was remodeled and expanded into the original commons.
