Station Camp High School (SCHS), located at 1040 Bison Trail, Gallatin, Tennessee, is a public high school that opened in 2002. In 2006, a little over 1,250 students attended the school. Arthur Crook is the current Principal.

History

Station Camp High School was created to ease overpopulation in three Sumner County public schools: Gallatin High School, Hendersonville High School, and Beech Senior High School. It is a four-year high school, but during the first years of operation, juniors and seniors could stay at their schools of origin. Freshmen and sophomores could attend the school an older brother or sister was currently attending.

David Hallman, the first principal, hired staff at a temporary building on the school property while overseeing construction of the plant and facilities. Guidance and administration registered students at the same building. Eventually, the office was moved to the Board of Education building where rooms were prepared for the opening of the 2002-2003 school year.

The facility located on Lower Station Camp Creek Road was not completed, so students and staff had to meet at 695 East Main Street in Gallatin. The temporary facility was the former Gallatin Junior High that was being renovated to house the administrative offices of the Sumner County Board of Education. For two months, classes met in former classrooms, portables, and temporary classrooms in the Teacher Center. During those two months, the population exceeded predictions causing some classes to be moved and additional teachers to be hired.

2006 Tornado

SCHS was in the middle of the hardest hit areas during the April 7 tornadoes. The inside of the building itself was relatively unscathed. Outside, only two light poles were blown down on the left side of the building, but damage was sustained to the roof of the gymnasium. Several of the athletic fields were damaged. The baseball and softball fields were destroyed, along with the field house. Additionally, several of the football field lights were toppled, and the school had to provide extra lighting for the 2006 football season. An entire row of trees along Lower Station Camp Creek Road was torn apart, changing the view south of the school.

2010 Flood

During the first weekend of May 2010 the schools grounds were damaged when station camp creek overcame its banks. The majority of damage was done to the football practice field and the baseball fields.
