About Our School

our history

The first public school for boys in Pensacola was organized in 1870. A two-story building on Wright Street was erected by the School Board in 1875. It was known as the Pensacola Academy. In 1886, a new building was erected on Lee Square, known as Public School No. 1. In 1905, the four-year high school was organized in the Public School No. 1 building. 

Pensacola High is recognized as having Florida's oldest high school football program, girl's basketball program, and school year book.
