  • School History
    Stuart High School opened in 1966. Its first class graduated in 1972. In 1980, due to changes in student enrollment, the Jefferson County Board of Education decided to close the high school and convert it into a middle school. Stuart High School's last class graduated in 1981, after which the building became the home of an enlarged Stuart Middle School, which had originally opened in a building on the campus of the high school in 1980.

    Our Stuart Spartans' Nation has a history with Jefferson Community College (JCC). The Southwest Campus of JCC opened for night classes in leased space at Stuart High School in 1972. In 1980, the current JCC Southwest Campus opened off Stonestreet Road in southwestern Jefferson County.
