Welcome to John Overton High School
"Preparing every student to graduate college ready,
career ready, and life ready!"
PLEASE CHECK THE OVERTON CALENDAR FOR IMPORTANT EVENTS!
We will have James Snider of TSAC at Overton during 6B on October 1. He will be talking to seniors about financial aid planning for college, including Lottery scholarships and TN Promise. We encourage all parents (even parents of underclassmen) to attend!
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.
