Shelby High School was first mentioned in local papers of the time as being established in June 1877 by Professor J.A. Smith with G.W. Sharpe and Miss Laura Sharp as instructors. Two articles of early 1887, mention Miss E.A. Draughton as an assistant at the Shelby School. Attendance was recorded as ninety. It is not certain whether this was an early public or private school. Little information is available on public schools in Shelby prior to 1901, when all the records burned.
