Welcome to Slocomb High School, Home of the Redtops!
Slocomb High School was instituted 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. In 2015, a new media center was built. The former library was converted into a classroom with room for choral and theater classes.
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 teams' 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.
