Bolton High School enjoys a rich and unique history in Shelby County, Tennessee. The current campus exists on the former Hoboken Plantation that was owned by Wade H. Bolton. Upon his death in 1869, the prominent land owner set aside 1,200 acres for the founding of an agricultural college. Bolton operated as an agricultural college and teachers' preparatory school from 1887 to 1911, whereupon it became part of the Shelby County School system. By 1925, Bolton had been designated as a secondary school and has remained a part of Shelby County Schools ever since.
The guiding principle of Bolton High School is the development of the individual youth for a purposeful life. Our mission is to help students achieve their potentials and acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become productive citizens.
1. Fostering a secure environment where instruction and learning are the primary focuses.
2. Developing students with vital skills in math, reading, research, technology, communication, and critical thinking necessary to become productive citizens.
3. Helping students form positive attitudes, positive characteristics, and mutual respect.
