What Makes Our School Unique?
Since opening our doors to students in 1958, John Overton High School has developed a reputation of excellence recognized by many across this state and nation. Thirteen state championships in a variety of activities, numerous invitations to national events in the arts and a consistent record of high academic achievement clearly document a commitment to excellence.
High levels of parental support, an outstanding faculty, a strong curriculum and students with achievement-related goals are key elements in this pattern of success. The entire Overton community is proud of the school.
