School History

      Tooele county was one of six counties created in January 1850; it is the eighth largest county in Utah and covers 7,000 square miles, with a population of 58,218 (Tooele city's population is 31,605). Tooele County is composed of five main communities: Tooele, Grantsville, Stansbury Park, Dugway, and Wendover. All communities are serviced by Tooele County School District. Classes were first held in the "new" Tooele High School in 1913, with the first graduating class of 1914 having fifteen students. Compare that with this year's enrollment, which has grown to over 1,800 students (served), as we have rapidly outgrown our campus capacity of 1,450. The Tooele community is one built on tradition, and they take great pride in their local schools. Located in the heart of the city, Tooele High School, in particular, is really a community center, where we are constantly hosting City and County events in our Auditorium and Gym(s), as well as our Football Field, and all other athletic venues across campus.
