  About The School  

Welcome to Slocomb High School

Welcome to Slocomb High School ... Home of the Redtops!

Slocomb High School started in 1901, in a wooden building, near the site of the present day Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. In 1925, a larger school was built on Hemby Street, the present location of Slocomb Elementary School.The present building was erected in 1980 and Slocomb Middle School followed in 1988. SMS is made up of the 6th through the 8th grades. Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors make up SHS.

According to Mr. James Bass, a Slocomb alumnus, John B. Davidson came to Slocomb High School, as head coach, after graduating from college. Coach Davidson painted his team's helmets red to distinguish them from the rest of the area team's leather helmets. He called his team the Redtops, and the name stuck. At some point, the Indian was adopted as the school's mascot and eventually this Indian became known as the Slocomb Redtop.

We are honored to have your child and / or children enrolled in the Slocomb Schools System.  We hope that you utilize our website for information and updates. Our administration, faculty and staff are present to give your child the best education possible. This is made possible by parents, students, community members and the school working together. This action ensures that our students achieve their goals. We encourage parents to stay involved with what the students are working on in class or in extracurricular activities. Thank you for your support of our schools and let's have a great year! GO REDTOPS!!
