Lincoln High School (Gahanna, Ohio)

Lincoln High School is a public high school in Gahanna, Ohio.HistoryEstablished in 1882 as Gahanna High School and renamed Lincoln High School in 1927, Lincoln is the only high school in the Gahanna-Jefferson Public School District. The original Gahanna High School was located on Short Street in what is now known as Olde Gahanna. The current school building opened in 1927, and it has experienced many additions and renovations since, the most recent being the addition of Clark Hall in 2011. Over 2,400 students attend the school.The name 'Lincoln High School' is a result of an early struggle between Gahanna and Jefferson Township. The Township wanted their name on the high school; however Gahanna was against naming the school Gahanna Jefferson High School (the district was already named 'Jefferson Local Schools' at that time). The city and Township compromised and named the school Lincoln, and the name remains.Lincoln High School's mascot is the Golden Lion and so the school is nicknamed the "Home of the Lions." The school colors are Royal Blue and Athletic Gold. The 38acre campus is made up of three buildings, named "Lincoln", "Jefferson", and "Hamilton". This compound, along with athletic facilities, district administration building and Lincoln Elementary, takes up nearly an entire block, bounded on the north by Havens Corners Road, and on the west by South Hamilton Road. The original 1927 building was renovated in 1987 is known today as Lincoln Hall. The 2000 addition is known as Jefferson Hall and was built to replace the previous C Building which stood where the entrance to the stadium is today. Hamilton Hall was originally constructed in 1963 and has had additions in 1982 (an auditorium, a library, a band room, and an auxiliary gym) and 1995 (science classrooms, theater and TV classrooms, a choir room, a new main office complex and a second cafeteria). The three buildings are all connected by inner hallways, however they can also all be accessed by outside doors. Starting in the 2011-2012 School Year the name Hamilton Hall, Lincoln Hall, and Jefferson Hall replaced the names A, B, and C Building, respectively.
