Sequoyah High School is a public high school founded in 1908 located in Claremore, Oklahoma. The school colors are blue and gold, and the mascot is an eagle.

History[edit]

In 1908, the first graduating class left a two story schoolhouse that was located on the current site. In 1936 an indoor gymnasium and high school building were added.

In 1957 the gym & high school burned to the ground but were rebuilt by 1959. Another fire destroyed the elementary building in 1975. A new elementary was built.

The next 15 years saw a new middle school, football program, band program, track, and the Olan Graham field house that is still used today.

Every 5 years patrons have supported bond issues and added land, buildings, and programs.

In 2006, the Eagles won the 2006 State Football Championship with a record of 14-0.
