  • History & Memorable Moments

Gulf High School opened on September 18, 1922, with an initial enrollment of 39 students and a faculty consisting of three teachers. There were no seniors during the first school year; the first graduation took place on April 29, 1924, with eleven seniors. Although Gulf High School remained the only high school in western Pasco County for over fifty years, enrollment remained small through the 1950s and local residents feared the state might close the school. In the 1920s and 1930s the sports teams were nicknamed the "Cooties," from a shortened name for the Pithlachascotee River, on which the school was situated. In 1931 a dispute between the school trustees and the county school board over the selection of a principal was appealed to the Florida Supreme Court. In 1938 football was revived after an absence of several years and in November of that year the Tampa Tribune dubbed the team the "losingest team in the country," as it had been outscored by 442-0 thus far in the season. But the 1941-42 football team had a 9-1 record and won the Gulf Coast Conference championship. In 1961 Gulf High School moved into a new building, and in 1977 it moved to its third and current location. The building which now houses Gulf High school opened as Gulf Junior High School in 1971; in 1977 the two schools switched buildings. Schools in Pasco County were racially integrated in the 1960s, and the first black students to attend Gulf High School were enrolled at the start of the 1966-67 school year. In April 2007, the International Baccalaureate Organization approved a diploma program for Gulf High School. [1]
